First projects in my shop!

 My garage is almost complete.  We just need to finish the wall we put up, and it will be done.  But, I can now use it for photographing my work.  Here are the first three pieces ever displayed in my pretty little shop :)

A Kitchen in a Weekend

This weekend's project was a kitchen in one of our rental properties.  We took the girls to my Mom's on Thursday night, and started at 7 am Friday morning.  This is the before picture.

Painting My Garage Floor

This week's goal is to get my garage finished.  I didn't know what to do with the floors, so I decided to just paint them.  I didn't really want to spend money on flooring that would probably ruin with all the traffic and moisture that happens in a garage.

A slow-going project, but going nonetheless!

So as I mentioned in my last post, I am transforming our garage into a shop space.  We moved out all the unfinished pieces into a rented garage space, and are working to transforming the front half of our garage.  It's not done, but this is the progress so far.

Running a Creative Business - Making Logical Decisions

 Running your own business can be emotional.  You start making money and you want to jump forward in your success.   You get so excited, you make hasty decisions that just don't make sense.  

Spring is here, and with it comes a new energy to finish more projects.  I can now put my girls on a play mat outside, and paint in the gorgeous sunshine.  So-long, winter!

Armoire Reveal

A while ago, I asked for some opinions on what colour I should paint my beautiful armoire.  I received some fantastic suggestions - but the majority of the comments leaned towards greys and blues.  Well, last week I finished this beast.

Upper Canada Sideboard

Easter is past, and it's back to work for all.  My garage is bursting at the seams with projects, so I was pretty excited to get going this week.  I decided to kick start with this charming buffet.
