Side table Reveal and other ramblings

It’s officially summer and I’m officially busy! I hate that word, I’m all about the quote that says something like “stop the glorification of busy”. I don’t want to be the person who neglects relationships because of being busy and I do my best to have a good balance. But being a new business and having people interested in what I’m doing is exciting! My house is currently rearranged, housing pieces that are works in progress, I have paint and primer in places on my body that i’m sure I’m not even aware of… Don’t you love that… When you think you’ve washed it all off, and you go out and realized you have a big streak of paint on the back of your arm or in your hair!? Nonetheless it’s an exciting season around here! I’m so thankful to be able to do this and be home with my boys, sure that means projects take twice as long, but is wouldn’t trade it for anything!

I haven’t been as on top of this blog as I want to be (I sound like a broken record!). So I just wanted to catch you up on a project that I’ve recently finished!

This had been sitting in my basement mostly finished for probably a month, so yesterday while waiting for a different piece to dry I finished her up and took some pics!

I used Benjamin Moores Rockport Grey with a white underneath, and did the opposite (grey then white) for the drawer and used my favorite little dremel to distress. I finished it with clear and then dark wax.

You might’ve seen her sister who I did a few months ago in the same style just with a yummy mint color. They’re both a couple of my favorite pieces I’ve ever done!

Well here’s to a great summer, busy with meaningful relationships, real conversations, quiet moments, lots of laughter, fresh air and washing paint off our arms! See you around here again, hopefully sooner than later!
