Ok I am sooo far behind. I know I know. It just seems like when it comes to the end of the school year, the little thing called "My time" gets thrown out the window. Booooo on that crap.
Back to the fun stuff. I went on a little vacay for Memorial day and we did go to some garage sales. Can I just say....That is so much fun with my sisters and mom. We do some drive by shopping. You know what that is. Driving by and seeing if there is anything you can see you want and if not, outta there. Well there were some great finds. I will be redoing some furniture as well as some small decor. Stay tuned.

Apartment fabulous

More stuff from the apartment. Ok This stuff is so cute. It just shows you that you can take something so basic and make it just what you want. Ok check out this cute desk. Now I don't have a before of this desk, but it was just this horrible green color with silver knobs.

Just painted it with the Bahamaus Gold from Krylon and then the chair just black from Krylon. So cute. Ok then I love the new craze of the empty frames. Look how cute this turned out.

Then she bought this basket at DI. Well she need some color. So we painted it. All I am saying is that you can turn anything into some pop of color in your house.

Also this was a blackish color. We bought it at DI. My sister decided that she would paint it orange and look how cute it is. She glazed it as well. Turned out good. Make your home what you want. Now there is a whole lot of color in her apartment. But I do love it. Mwah

I know this is a newer blog, but I need to get the word out. This beautiful human being is my sister in law. I love her oodles. She is battling MS. For the past 10 years she has been completely dependent on others. I remember she had gotten to a point that she needed help right after she had got married. All the sister in laws took turns going in and helping her. Helping her to get into her wheelchair, help her eat. Help her grab things. This was at the beginning stages of it. All the little things that we take for granted. It seriously broke my heart. She continued to get worse and worse. She has her mother caring for her every day. If someone doesn't help her eat, then she doesn't get to eat. If someone doesn't help her bathe, then she doesn't get clean. Her mother is the researcher of all researchers. Her mother heard a certain diet could help so she put celeste on it. (mind you I would try and sneak stuff for celeste when her mom wasn't looking) Her mother has researched this and found this new treatment. They need help because it is so expensive. Donate. Donate anything you can. Celeste and Matt deserve to have this moment. A moment where she can walk, a moment where she can do things on her own, a moment to be a mother. Be a part of this. Help her get there. DONATE!!! MWAH!!

Go to here to read about her and see the video (so inspiring) or here to donate.

This is what I feel like today.

I have way way way too much going on. This is what happens at the end of the school year. YOWZA!
Ok back to furniture redos. So this is one of the latest and greatest projects. Now my sister get these colors. Some of them I am like OH yes!!! Then others I'm like Oh NO!!! She chose a lime green. When she was done with it, it was like neon green. We had to go back and get another color and this is what is came out to look like. I actually uber love it. Thats the great thing about paint, you can re-do. :) mwah!!!

Serious need of Window Treatments

I am in some serious need of window treatments. In every room. Now I have the shutters which I love. But I think to dress it up a bit more Curtains would be lovely. Here are some ideas that I love love (but could I really pull this off)

This last one is over at All things thrifty. I am being super lazy at this moment and not giving you a link to just click on. Just type in Window Valance on her site (where you search) . The first one will show you how she did it. It is rather inspiring. Mwah!!

Apartment AMAZING!!!

I promised to show you some of the projects that my sis and I did in the apartment. I love how it all worked out.
Check out this cute cute table. We finished all the chairs. I love everything about it.
I was a little worried of how it would all look with the Red wall, but I just think it looks absolutely adorable.
This Turquoise scared me a little. I just thought with the red wall that it would look like a del taco commercial. NOPE. Once she had put the decorations up and let me just say that this picture does not give it justice. It is freakishly adorable. I love it.
To my sister...You seriously inspire me and secretly make me want to have a little apartment to decorate. :) Mwah!!!

It's raining it's pouring

Too much going on. I know that I am a slacker, but we are having a flood warning in our area and that is consuming me.

I know I am a slacker...

But with the Royal Wedding and all. I have been uber busy. :) Ok so I love painting furniture. LOVE IT. Some people might demise it and actually loath it. But not I. But when I saw these I thought YOWZA. How cute, but would I have enough patience to do this.
