Furniture rearranging again

I moved around the living room and I really like it! Looks more cozy and warmer! I have a weird living room and I have playing around with the placement of the furniture for some time now. I like this set up and I hope to keep it that way for a while!!!

I painted this pink and white of course. I have a few more to paint and even a gazebo bird feeder.
I just need to paint them and add some more detail.
I will post pics when they are done as well.

Bedroom furniture before

Here are a few pics of the bedroom furniture I picked up at agarage sale for only 30.00 the whole set. It also includes the dresser!!
Here are the before pics.
I hope to add after pics by the end of the week! I will be painting the furniture country white.

Thrifty finds

I have been all over thrift stores here and there and found so mant neat treasures lately!!
These beautiful plates I found for only 50 a piece. I love the pink roses and the gold. So pretty and I have enough for a tea party, however there weren't any tea cups!! Now I must find them! the milkglass cake stand I stuffed some roses in was only a few dollars and its just so pretty too.
I rearranged my living room furniture this weekend and I really like it alot. I will get some pics posted tommorow during the day!!
I also found a whole bedroom set- all wood- for only 30.00!!!
I am going to be painting it this week and hope to get our master bedroom painted as well.
I have a huge list of things to do around the house and it gets overwhelming at times!!
I just need to take my time and try not to stress over it. I have a good eye for bargains, which helps alot, and it just takes a great amount of patience.

Camping away

The kids have been having a great time with Grandma, Grandpa and Auntie Amber.
Auntie Amber bought a big tent and the kids have been camping out in the back yard!!
Not exactly roughing it- they have power out there, a fan, a dvd player, radio, lanterns, mps players and the works!!
Mommy tried roughing it out too, but an hour into the night Mamas back was about to give out!!! I tried!!
It was nice and cozy out there for sure! They made smores the first night and watched movies!!

Hallway done!

We kept busy yesterday with some painting projects. We repainted the small hall area leading to MB and while we were at it, we tore down some wall paper borger in the hallway of main bathroom and gave it a fresh coat of paint as well.
It looks great, fresh and clean once again. It's amazing what dogs and kids can do to your home!!
After we painted the hall area off the master bedroom I added some pretties.
The candleabra was a thrift store find for 1.00 that I painted and added roses and costume jewelry too.
We still have to paint the master bedroom and kitchen I added to the list as well.
I am thinking pink!!
