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!

  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 :)

  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.

  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!

Hope your family time was fun, can't wait to see the new projects.
