A few pieces of furniture, and working on our house exterior.

Lately house renovations have been slowing down.  We've been focusing more on finishing up little details, refinishing some furniture, and getting the house ready for winter.

A Stenciled Stained Dresser

Summer is in full swing, and I find myself aching to get back from vacation to work so I can work on projects.  Projects for me are like a drug - I can't go without them for very long. I need help.

Two dressers, deocrating my new home, and summertime!

Ah... it's officially summer.  Time to string up the hammock and laze away those hot sleepy evenings.  Time to pack up the cooler with juice and salads and head to the cottage.  And time to get some projects done, of course!  Let me share with you what I've been busy with these past couple of weeks.

A Spring House Update

It has been a few months since my last update on our house.  I haven't wanted to share because so much of the project has been 'almost done!' for so long.  For instance, my kitchen has been 'almost done!' for over a month, but some of the cupboard fronts are on backorder, so I can't finish it until they come in.  So frustrating!

Pottery Barn Knock-Off Vanity

While hunting for a vanity for our bathroom on Kijiji, I came across a wild deal on a piece of quartz counter.  The man selling it was a contractor, and this piece was the wrong colour for his client.  So for $250, I got a beautiful piece of silvery-sparkled quartz with two beveled sink cut-outs, and two under-mount sinks.

And the demo goes on....

The demolition of our little farm house continues.  Last Saturday we had some help swinging sledge hammers.  It gave us a good boost.  The rest of the week we spent finishing the demo, and, well, planning.

A Work In Progress

Well, since many have been asking for pictures, I finally have a night to upload some onto my blog.  Warning: these photos are not before-and-after photos.  They are before-and-so-far photos.  There is nothing on this post worthy of Pinterest.  Just some shots of our beautiful mess!
