We had eight days left on our lease. Only 8 days and we would be homeless or living in a hotel with 3 kids and a dog. We hoped for a miracle and through the grace of God and the hard work of our realtor we found a home. We found the perfect home for our family. A large treed lot, plenty of space to grow, everything we were hoping to find. With a little elbow grease and a little of bit of time we will make it our own.
This weekend we worked in our yard clearing brush and dead limbs. My parents were here to visit and were a huge help. My dad and Brian cleared the yard with a chainsaw while my mom piled brush and limbs to be hauled away.
I worked keeping the kids out of the way, and painting furniture and patio furniture to spruce up our old things for our new home. I love to redo furniture, it's a favorite hobby of mine.
I painted old adirondack chairs and made them beautiful for our front porch.
After (a few bright pillows and they will be just right)
I also painted our boring old patio set which was black and faded...
the chairs are now bright turquoise and the table fire engine red. I love it.
Last night I finished another project. I painted our kitchen chairs and table. I really like how they turned out.
I painted the white dingy chairs black...
and the table denim blue plaster paint, sanded it in places to make a rustic look,
added antiquing wax and a clear coat...
