Painting…Painting…Painting!

Painting…Painting…Painting!

Now that our final coat of stain has finished drying on our chairs, we are ready to PAINT them! These 4 dining chairs and 4 barstools are going to be two-tone. They go together with a matching dining table and bench set that we are also working on.

We will be using the elegant grey that we told y’all about the other day. (The inspiration color on the clock) The paint color is called Krypton…and we LOVE it! We can’t wait to see our finished product, and will be sure to post some pictures once we have everything completed.

Daily Inspiration: Never Lose Sight Of Your Purpose

Daily Inspiration: Never Lose Sight Of Your Purpose

Something to sleep on tonight…Never lose sight of your PURPOSE! During my reading time the other day, I ran across this and thought I that I would share it with all of you….

“I have not failed 10,000 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those 10,000 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work”

                                                          -Thomas Edison

Trust us, as business owners we have found about a million ways that didn’t work before finally finding the 1 thing that did work! We have just learned to have faith is God, and to keep moving forward NO MATTER WHAT!

Stay ENCOURAGED tonight, Friends! We all get sidetracked and caught up in the ups and downs of life. And sometimes it seems as though we will never find a solution to our problems, but STAY POSITIVE! Your answer could be just around the corner!

“Tip Of The Week” How To Remove Permanent Marker From Everything

“Tip Of The Week” How To Remove Permanent Marker From Everything

Hi friends! Here’s a nice little “how-to” list for permanent marker removal. If any of you have been thinking of refinishing some of your pieces due to permanent marker damage, this list may save you some time and money!

We have not tried all of the solutions listed here, but can vouch for the rubbing alcohol method on wood. And if you do not have any rubbing alcohol on hand, hair spray works quite nicely! We have had to use this little trick first hand since we have 4 little ones.

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture Collage

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture Collage

Five things you should know about this picture collage:

1.) Introductions first.. This is our youngest daughter, Savannah, who is 3! And our little beagle puppy, Gingerbread Dandelion (Our oldest daughter named her, Haha!). We got Ginger when Savannah was a baby, so they have grown up together. At this point you could say that we now have 2 toddlers in our home.Continue reading

New Color Inspiration…..GREY!

New Color Inspiration…..GREY!

We are currently working on a very large order for a client, and we LOVE the color that they chose! They brought us this gorgeous clock for the inspiration for their refinish. Now, it looks a little blue in the picture… but in person, it is a very elegant light grey. What we love most about using this shade of grey is that it has a calming effect and will not overpower the space that it is in. This is also a neutral color and can be paired with many other colors without clashing.

We chose to go with Sherwin Williams Ovation Latex Flat Paint. The color that we are using is called Krypton!

 

We are currently working on stripping, sanding, and cleaning all of their pieces, and cannot wait to start staining and painting everything! We will post our finish product as soon as we have everything completed! So…STAY TUNED!

It’s Wedding Season!

It’s Wedding Season!

June is fast approaching! And we all know what that means….WEDDING SEASON! We LOVE weddings! We love weddings so much, Patrick and I got married not once, but twice! To each other! True Story! But that is a story for another time…. ♥

Today we had the honor of attending a friend’s beautiful wedding! Patrick and I so enjoyed ourselves. There is just something about seeing 2 people commit to one another for the rest of their lives that makes my heart swell. Love is one of the strongest, most sacred bonds in the world. Some people search their whole loves, and once they find it, they never want to let it go! There is nothing like it! Love is truly one of God’s most beautiful gifts to the world.

Congratulations to our sweet friends on their wedding day! We pray blessings and favor over you both!
