Being away for 2 weeks really felt like eternity! Now that my loving family is back home I can get back into the swing of things not to mention lots of blog reading to catch up on. I know I missed lots of good stuff while I was gone. Although I didn't have tons of time to devote to projects there are some things I'm pretty excited about....
Like this beautiful bronze urchin I ordered from Furbish.
I've been coveting them for awhile and finally ordered one. It arrived rather quickly and is surprisingly bigger than I imagined it would be. I plan to put it on my coffee table.....Can't wait to showcase it!
And this desk I'm currently working on.
A few months back I scored a very simple antique desk with
good bones. I recently sprayed painted it with black automotive lacquer paint, but it's still missing that glossy mirror look I'm going for. After doing some research I found that pumice and rottenstone will help to achieve that look. A little nervous to try this stuff but we shall see.
And my wing back chair that is currently getting reupholstered and ready for pickup. Look for a post in the next coming weeks.
And last but not least....our newest addition to our family.
Zena is a English Bulldog and like no other breed we have ever owned. We have had her for a week now and is spoiled by everyone. She is officially a part of our family! Zena will be making frequent guest appearances here on CM.
Hope everyone is enjoying these last few days of summer left. I am soooo ready for fall/winter!
