In my first post of 2014, Looking Back & Moving Forward, I said that 2014 was going to be "The Year of the House".
We had 3 major projects for the year.
I had no expectations of completing all 3 of the projects in the first month, but I think putting the goals in writing helped with our motivation.
By January 8, Steve had created a new tabletop from reclaimed wood for our existing table.
By January 14, our guest room was gone and in its place is the perfect creative space for me.
The biggest change, completed on January 31, was to have our cobblestone patio relaid.
February is shaping up to be a "month of paint".
I bought the cabinet a few weeks ago at my favorite local antique shop, American Home and Garden.
I like the lines, but the color is not right for my color palette and I also want to replace the handles.
This tall cabinet is going to get a couple of coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - Old White -followed by lots of sanding to bring out the different colors of each drawer.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep this old dresser in my workspace, but so many people commented that a new paint job and hardware will work wonders - I am leaning toward a minty green shade.
This little rocker has been loved by 4 generations (starting with my grandfather) of children and soon it will get a new coat of red paint.
February is a short month and 5 days have already passed so I had better get busy if I want to finish everything by the end of the month.
