I hope we all make it

I hope we all make it…truly.  Competing…not for me.  Comparison…steals my joy and motivation to be creative.  I get excited for others when they achieve success, even if I haven’t.  That is what it’s about folks!

No before and after this week, but I am working on, oh, about six projects. Lot’s of prep work to be done on these pieces.  So stay tuned!  xo, Meg

Feeling thankful for long winters

Everyday this week the sun has been shining, and it keeps fooling me into believing it will be a warm day. They  haven’t been.  A part of me was disappointed when I realized I needed a jacket today. Not just layers, but layers and a jacket. The long winter combined with the slow progression to spring; almost makes me a bit grumpy. So I spent a few moments (okay, about thirty minutes) on pinterest this morning. Does anyone else do that, go look at pinterest while drinking coffee in the morning?

Anyways, I found this picture…

I’m ready for hot days, and warm nights filled with… lights; get togethers with friends and family; and hopefully, a few romantic dinners with my sweetheart.  I will savor every magical moment.  This is why I’m thankful for long winters, they make me appreciate the hot, humid summers more. Does anyone else have a slight “obsession” with outdoor globe lights?  To me they are magical!

This child size table and chair set makeover goes in the nursery room with “Josephine.”  Baby “R’s” room will be the perfect place for creativity as he/she grows up.  As I was photographing the pieces, I had the urge to sit down and color.  You might think that I get enough of “coloring”, but the honest truth is most days are spent prepping pieces to transform.  There was no time for me to do so, but it reminded me of why I love what I do…that desire to create, to release the images in my head.  My hope is that baby “R” will cultivate the joy of creativity at this little set. Chairs always require a couple hours of prep work (each) for me,  these were no exception even though they were mini chairs.  Here is the before…

I can’t wait to meet sweet baby “R.”  All these nursery room furniture transformations give me a touch of baby fever.  For now, my furniture makeovers, are my “babies.”
