Still Settling In!


Still getting settled at the new homestead.  Downsizing has been a whole new thing for me, I’m usually up sizing and dragging new things home all the time….like the ever expanding fabric stash that has now completely taken over.
It’s been very busy and hectic since arriving at our new location.  Super challenging to move into a house with no linen cupboard and no coat closet.  The main bathroom had zero storage as well so I have been a regular at the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  Thank Goodness for that place!!!
Because of the ReStore, I now have lots of cupboards and a nice vanity in the bathroom albeit a lot of elbow grease was required to make it work but with some sweat and a little skill on our part my husband and I were able to accomplish a lot in a short period of time.

I recently took a painting class focused on the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint line of products.  I love painting with chalk paint but I cannot lie…her products are expensive and I am not above trolling around on Youtube to learn how to make my own home made version…which is exactly what I did!
I did however buy her dark wax and used it to age and give some patina to the cupboard pictured below.

The vanity pictured here was an amazing find. It included a beautiful KOHLER Sink and set of taps but was in need of and update and some feet.  It was a super satisfying project that proved my Hubby and I still work well as a team even after all these years.

 The resulting bathroom mini renovation gave me a very vintage, flea market chic kinda feel to the room perfect for hanging up a bunch of my thrift shop finds in.

 I have NO IDEA how I am ever going to tackle my studio space!  We still have some of my boxes to come into the house from a storage unit and all that is left are boxes marked “Studio”…oh dear…I guess I’ll be hanging around the ReStore some more!
