I'm Back!!!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

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.

Via 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!

Pin It!


  1. OMGoodness! Zena is so cute. Makes me wonder if you/I use pets in blog content, is it tax deductible?... Anyway, I have an urchin obsession! I have yet to make any purchases showcasing them, though. Yours looks amazing! Blessings

    1. Thank you! I have no clue about pets being tax deductible, this is the first time I heard of that. But I'm curious to know as well :)

  2. I was going to mention how gorgeous your Furbish urchin is (stunning) but Zena totally stole the show! What a cutie! Good to have you back! x

    1. Thanks Meghan! Zena is definitely a show stopper. Who could resist those chubby wrinkles..hehe

  3. Glad you're back!! OMG I'm in love with Zena!!! English bulldogs are the cutest..all those wrinkles make me melt! We have an American bulldog and I'd love to give him a little baby sister like Zena! :)

    1. You totally should get him a baby sister! Zena is wonderful and were all fond of her :)

  4. Aww what a cutie!! Can't wait to see your updates :)

  5. Welcome back. Your new addition to the family is lucky to have such a great home!

    1. Aww thank you Shauna! Were very lucky to have her :)

  6. Zena is adorable (luv the name too!!). Pumice and rottenstone, I've never heard of it .... how exciting to try something new huh. I am looking fwd to seeing how beautiful it turns out. I would had added high-gloss latex paint, which I have used for wood doors to get that shiny reflection look.

  7. Yay! You're back!

    Zena is adorable! I can't wait to see more pictures of her!

  8. Welcome back! Spray paint automotive lacquer? How durable is that? I have some fiberglass chairs that I occasionally have to repaint because rivets and things on everyone's pants knick them up. I bet your family is loving Zena!

  9. Aaaaaw, I love your dog!! He is SO cute :)

  10. So glad you're back! Your new family member is so adorable. I can't wait to see your wing back chair. I have been wanting to buy a couple and redo them myself.

  11. Mandy he is so stinkin cute! And I bet he has puppy breath. I love puppy breath. I take blog breaks all the time, sometimes for family or just because life gets so busy it is hard to find the time to do a post. glad your back! Hope your family time was fun, can't wait to see the new projects.
