2nd Year Blogiversary & Desk GIVEAWAY!

Inspire others...share!

Wahoo!! I’ve made to my 2nd year blogiversary and I want to thank YOU readers for all your love and support.  Without you I wouldn’t be here! Just wait until you see the gift I have for you!

Let me take a minute to reflect on my beginnings. It all began on Mother’s Day two years ago when I signed up for my blog, though didn’t actually start posting anything until the early part of the following June. I took most of May to learn, set things up, and create graphics. I was bleary eyed from all the code, but having a blast learning. As of last May I was new to being a mom of 6, had to run in high gear because I had medical bills to pay from being in the NICU with our babe, so off I went like a mad-woman painting and selling furniture in my shop. There were times we needed the money the next day and I was scrambling around trying to figure out how we were going to make the payment, and my latest piece would be listed and sell within a half hour. BAM! God is so good. He knew what we needed and when. Like when I finished this feed sack chair. It sold lightning fast and was a hit on the internet. Living Vintage Behind the Blogger Series with Prodigal Pieces I like to highlight some of my favorite pieces over the last year. One was an antique table makeover with my favorite color: Aqua An Antique Side Table Get an Aqua Makeover - My FAVORITE! by Prodigal Pieces www.prodigalpieces.com #prodigalpieces There’s also my ugly duckling dressing table makeover… A Beat Up Vanity Gets a Gorgeous Makeover by Prodigal Pieces www.prodigalpieces.com #prodigalpiecesmy sewing cabinet repurposeAntique Stereo Repurposed Into Sewing Cabinet by Prodigal Pieces www.prodigalpieces.com #prodigalpieces …and my Ikea Rast Hack. It was fun! Box Camera Dresser - Ikea Rast Hack by Prodigal Pieces www.prodigalpieces.com #prodigalpieces During the last year, most of my blogging was furniture related because of my need to provide that extra income. We even had to put our bedroom remodel on hold because there was no time to work in there, while trying to pay bills.

It wasn’t until a few weeks ago that we were able to announce the grand finale…FINALLY!! It’s a must-read for sure.

My channel back chair which was sort of celebratory piece because we had paid off our bills within a year, and I had been wanting to do that chair for 2 years.

I also have to mention my sewing fabric storage I was finally able to implement. I have now regained my sanity. tsk.

 I also had fun creating my first video tutorial for farmhouse cotton branches.

And check out this reclaimed wood heaven I found!

My husband and I now do custom wood projects utilizing that source.

Now, it’s been a miraculous year and it’s only by God’s grace I’ve made it this far. I NEVER could have done it without my husband and my six wonderful children. They are everything to me…there are no words to describe how precious I hold them in my heart.

To celebrate all our blessings, I have the privilege of refinishing this desk and chair so that one of my readers could be blessed too.

    Perfect timing on this give-away! As soon as I finish my dining room chairs, I will be beginning on my office. I need to make all the mixxy-match pieces actually match, reorganize the space and add more storage. My foundation piece will be my old desk, which is Very similar to yours. So here is the deal, if I win, I’ll change my color scheme to use your desk and chair, and I’ll send you my desk as a donation to your church or some other worthy cause. oh, I love all the goodies in your store, but since my Grandmother worked in a bank, I’d have to say the Cleveland bank bag used as vase had the most interest to me on many levels! Thanks!

    What perfect timing! As soon as I finish my dining room chairs, I’m starting on my office. It needs reorganized, storage, getting all the miscellaneous pieces to match or at least look like I wanted them there. My foundation piece was going to be my desk that is very similar to yours. So here’s the deal. If I win, I’ll put your desk in my office and give my desk to you. You can donate it to your church or any other reputable charity of you choice.
    Oh yes, since my grandmother worked in a bank and since I’ve never seen a con bag used in this way, I’d have to say that this piece intrigued me on many levels.
