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. I like to highlight some of my favorite pieces over the last year. One was an antique table makeover with my favorite color: Aqua There’s also my ugly duckling dressing table makeover… …my sewing cabinet repurpose… …and my Ikea Rast Hack. It was fun! 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.
Yep, you read that right. This set has been refinished for you to WIN and have shipped right to your door. WOOT! A value of over $500!!
I would love someone to have this special place to sit, read, write, do whatever they need to do to take a breath. Maybe a place to pray or enjoy devotions, or just a place to keep things that are yours alone.
The desk has been given a brand new finish on the top and the cabinet has a whitewashed green treatment to coordinate with the floral upholstery.
I’M SO EXCITED that I can do this!!
I give all glory to God and also a HUGE thank you to my awesome DIY Furniture Girls who have sponsored me in this event. Check them out!
