I haven't blogged in almost five months, so I thought I would catch you up on what is going on with me (Serena) these days.
Since I was little I have had a passion for interior design and making old things into new beautiful things. This is what I have been doing everyday the past four months. Luckily, Giana is still napping well so during that hour to hour and a half, I work.
I have been so fortunate to have LOTS of family and recent new friends give me old furniture and things I can work with for FREE or a small price. I have a whole new circle of friends and acquaintances both young and old who have been so great to me!
Here are a few pieces I have refinished:
My wonderful Grandma gave me her antique chairs to refinish.
desk and end table
cork board and end table
Before&After of a coffee table and end table
antique end table
Antique coffee table
bought this huge mirror for five bucks, painted and fixed it up and sold it for $40!
got bread box for three dollars and painted it with paint I already had!
Before&After for this rolling antique chair. I bought three of them for 10 dollars each and sold the one above for $45!
I loved these chairs so much I decided to keep two of them.
They are my absolute favorite!
(my famous clock wall in the background)
sold my old entertainment center for $90 and bought this dresser for $60, painted white, distressed and fixed up with paint I already had.
another armoire. It looks white but it's a light blue!
Giana's picnic table :)
I have sold one black coffee table, three end tables, entertainment center, lamps etc that have not been pictured.
I also make wreaths and sell them:
so as you can see I have been pretty busy and I will probably continue to be busy up until Christmas, but I absolutely LOVE what I do!
Projects close to finish: my kitchen cabinets, my bedroom and headboard
NEXT projects for clients: a coffee table, 2 entertainment center and shelves.
I am so grateful to have a wonderful husband who supports me in doing this and for Giana for being so patient. I have made enough money to completely redo most of my home AND pay bills AND pay for ALL Christmas gifts. I feel so blessed this holiday season to be able to do this and help my family!
