Need more blogging....

There is no question....this blogging stuff is so new to me and with that, I have been procrastinating about putting up a new post. 

It's not so much about posting per se....but WHAT to post about.  I am so busy with running the shop - and we have so many other things going on right now, that I don't feel that I do, or have, anything interesting to write about. 

I have been working on several projects lately, and I will do a post on each of those individually...but I think on this one, I am going to focus on something my wonderful husband did for me about a month ago....  If you follow me on Facebook, you may have already seen it.  This is about the BEAUTIFUL bench that he made out of an antique 3/4 bed that we have had in inventory for a good two years.  If you have an antique business, you may know that 3/4 beds are a hard sell.  I have seen so many cool bed benches on Pinterest and FB that I begged him to do something similar.  What he did was over-the-top, in my opinion. 

Here is the bed before....YES, it IS a beautiful bed!  I know...how could we cut it up like that?  I look at it this way....it has been sitting in the shop for so long with no one loving it.  Why not make it into something that someone will be able to love AND use?

I am ashamed to say that I did not take pictures of Dean as he was building it....perhaps that's a good thing.  :)  It didn't seem to be the easy job I thought it would be. 

Here is the after picture.  See how he used almost all of the parts? 

I love my man.....


  1. Just found your blog thru fb. I was reading your post about not knowing what to blog about or even if it was interesting enough-let alone the time it takes to write....hmmm...i'm in the same boat! I say we just jump in and write about whatever comes to our heads. Just get something out there! I certainly am the pot calling the kettle black...ha. Between painting and thrifting we need to write a quick post! I am your newest follower/supporter. Loved that Lucketts green dresser! I am a chalk paint user and just received my order or milk paint...am a little nervous!
    Have a great day.

    1. Yay!! I don't feel so alone, now! :) I am finally moving from my own storefront back to a mall, so I will have so much more time to do all this fun stuff! I'm going to try to find your blog, now!! Don't be afraid of the milk paint. However, the one suggestion is make sure you make enough of the first batch. I find that for some reason, the second batch doesn't always match. However, I loved the way it turned out with the dresser. :)
