We bought a house a few months ago...

... now we need to decorate and furnish it on a budget. Since it is a new construction, it is a totally blank slate.

So Craigslist, Goodwill, Estate Sales, Garage Sales and paint are becoming my new “best friends”.  

I have a few furniture pieces that I am refinishing between school, work, RA, and life, so I am a weekend re-finisher.

Projects in progress:

Dresser for the master bedroom.
Colors for the master bedroom & bathroom are turquoise and chocolate.

Staining the top a dark wood stain

Tables for my sitting/reading room, (which is supposed to be a formal dining room).
Colors for the sitting/reading room are gray, yellow, and purple.

Messy Project Room

Guru is guarding this little table

Knick Knacks

Hobby Lobby Letter, Estate Sale candle sticks (there is more stuff...)
