Espresso & Chevron

We are up to our eyeballs in painting the exterior of our home, plus adding a stone veneer – yikes!!  It’s just me and my husband and our 5 kids looking on.  Needless to say we are exhausted.  One bright moment is that the new rose bush I planted in honor of our daughter (she was born too early and too little to survive – Gabriella Rose) finally bloomed!!

See the chippy paint in the background?  I told you we were busy!

My latest project is a small table that I plan to show you (if I ever get it finished), but I am also working on a art deco waterfall vanity for a client.

This should be a fun project because the client wants an espresso stain and the matching bench to be reupholstered in a chevron print.  I love the contrasting wood grain and gorgeous brass pulls.

What do you think of the paisley print on the bench…hmmm…chevron…much better.

Ever hear of too many irons in the fire?  I have a tendency to take on too much at once, but I do well under pressure too.  I will post pictures of the finished piece – hopefully by next week!

      Hi Becky! Facelift has stalled due to intermittent rain. :o/ But…I am almost finished staining the dressing table and hope to have finished photos by the weekend! Stop back and see! You have a great week too.

    I am so sorry to read about your little Gabriella Rose! I have miscarried 6 babies early. Too early to know their gender. Those were some of the most difficult experiences of my life. And yet God has brought forth precious fruit because of them.
    I’m not sure when this happened with Gabriella, but I will pray for your comfort regardless.
    The rose bush looks just beautiful!

      Thank you for your kind words Kelly. We got to meet and say goodbye to Gabriella about a year and a half ago, and since have had to say goodbye to one other. We do know we are blessed and know God is in control. You are a strong woman to go on trusting in the Lord!
