The Winter Blues

I'm not sure about anyone else, but I am ready for some warm weather! We've done a great job of keeping the garage warm (aka blasting heaters and keeping the door down) so we can continue to work through the cold months and it really hasn't slowed us down. But, we've been overwhelmed with ravamps and projects these last two weeks - which is awesome - but when you're working out of a one car garage, the finshed furniture has gotta go somewhere....

We set up all of our beds before sending them home with clients and since our garage is overflowing and freezing, we decided to set it up in the living room. Fortunatly there was enough space between our furniture and all the other completed pieces hanging out in my living room and kitchen.

Speaking of completed pieces - we just revamped a set of end tables that were sold just minutes after I posted them online. They are a tiffany blue color that was lightly distressed with a new farmhouse style top.

Since they were such a hit, I've been keeping my eyes out for some more. So hopefully we'll have a few more up for grabs shortly!

We also wrapped up our first Ugly Furniture Contest this week. I was so excited to see the response from our Facebook friends -- there were LOTS of votes, great comments and ideas. The winner is Amber! She is going to get a free makeover for dining room table. The piece has been in her family for over 100 years and even has a 1917 newspaper decoupaged to one of the table legs from a past repair. How cool! We are very excited to get started on the project -- I'll post before and after pictures when its done!
