Monday at My Home

I don't like to complain but I have to admit I am a lil tired this Monday! I spent the weekend, painting, baking and playing. I have a huge pile o laundry and jury duty looming ahead! I am not dreading the jury duty so much as having to leave baby girl. I haven't really left her except with an occasionally jaunt to the store while she's taking a nap at my Moms. I know that probably sounds weird to people, but I just don't want to leave her! Maybe it will get easier later on. I am really hoping they won't even need me.
So without further ado here are the happenings at my home.

I found this kinda ugly GW coffee table and with a little paint turned it into a treasure.



Once I finished with the coffee table I was in the painting mood so I then decided to paint the desk that was in our bedroom. When I finished I moved it downstairs. For some reason I always thought it would be fun to have a desk in front of our front window. I then moved our chair from the bathroom. All the other chairs I tried seemed too oppressive with the dainty desk. I think it turned out pretty, soft and feminine!



So what cha think luvs?
Thank you to these two lovely ladies for Inpiration! Good Girl Gone Glad and Just Bella

Both pieces are great. :) I really like that desk in front of the window, though! It must be so inspiring to sit at and look out. :)

Desk is lovely! I totally get you about not wanting to leave the little one. I have never had a babysitter other than Grandmas or Aunties... lucky, I guess!

These are so AWESOME Leah!!! Omg, I'm in love with that desk.. I need you here to help me find these gems.. you are awesome!
I really hope jury duty doesn't pan out.. I know what you mean about leaving your girl.. it's hard! I've never done it except for school, playdates and now sleepovers. I find even that something to get used to. Crossing my fingers for you here...

Lulu said...

Love that coffee table. I would have seen it and passed right by it, I never think to "redo" something. Looks beautiful and brand new!

Kristen said...

I LOVE this! That's what I want to do for a career, is refurbish furniture!

I just love making ugly things into beautiful treasures!

And your blog is so fun :)

Your endless amount of creativity continues to amaze me!
You see the potential in things most people cannot! Thanks to you, so many old pieces that have lived their lives and been dumped at GW are now getting a new life.... One that's much brighter, more colorful, and full of love:)
