Why be like everyone else when you can be yourself?

Buffet

A few months ago I got it in my head that I needed to rid myself of any furniture that still screamed COLLEGE DAYS! Suspect No. 1 was my tv stand. It’s quite fancy really. A rectangular box with a couple of drawers I got at Walmart for $30. High end, I know.

To add fuel to my obsession, I have been seeing all kinds of cool things on that black void known as Pinterest. (You can follow my boards at the link at the top) So I also got in my head that I needed an old buffet and I would transform it to greatness!

So, I waited and I waited until at last a perfect candidate appeared on Craigslist. Score! So, I headed down to Circleville, loaded it up in my aunt’s van and headed home. This actually was a long endeavor as I had switched cars with said aunt and forgot to take the house key with me.

After finally getting back in the house I put the munchkin to bed and immediately started cleaning it up and got 2.5 coats on before crashing at 3 AM.

The next day after work I came home and finished it up. SIX coats later.

So here is the finished result. I have to figure out how to hide the cords, and I’ll probably get some baskets for underneath it for munchkin’s toys, but overall I think it turned out pretty well. I love how the green accents turned out. I just need that last drawer pull. Lesson learned – always check the little bags the pulls come in, even if they all came from the same drawer.

After a long hiatus, I’m back

I love blogs. I love writing them. I love reading them. I love reading what others have to say.

But they are hard.

Between work and raising a very rascally munchkin, fun blogging can sometimes turn into a job, and thus, a very long break. Dreary winter weather doesn’t help much either. And if we’re being honest, me and the to-go window have been best friends the past few weeks.

So, I’m back. For how long? Who knows?
