Hello out there

So I have been working on the guest room/office today and I must say it's finally starting to look like something...It's been a long road. I still have to get the pillow covers done, the curtains hung and get the light installed in the closet. Then I will be ready to show it off.. I know I know... I'm working as fast as I can. 

On another note I got an email for Ellen over at
Passing an Award on to me If you have not been over to her Blog please do so, She is so sweet... Thank you so much for thinking of me.

I too love when I get comments they make me feel like all my hard work is appreciated. And that the lovely ladies in blogland take the time to come over and visit. So now I'm passing this on to:
Bonnie at She's a real Shabby Chicer 
Cindy at  She can turn out some cool stuff

Having Spray Paint Withdrawals

So I'm almost done with the guest room/office, I have a few more thinks to tackle before I post it. In the mean time I'm having serious spray paint withdrawals...(is this even possible)?? I don't have a basement and I can't go out in the garage to get the three things that need to get done for this room. So in the mean time I will leave you with one more hint...

Have a Great Week

Another Day Of Snow

Good morning, so after working on the guest room/ office I'm still not done. The weather has kept me in not being able to go shopping for the rest of the stuff for this room... Maybe thats a good thing. I did however get a phone call form my dear friend Cindy saying that she was done with my slipcover for my chair.. Do you remember my $20.00 GW find?

Well here it is all dressed up, I'm so happy with the way it turned out.

I think I will grab a cup of coffee sit in my new chair with my laptop a catch up on all the wonderful blogs  out there while watching the snow come down... Have a beautiful day and weekend.

   And as soon as I drink my coffee I'm going to finish painting ....But before I go Look what my dear friend Kathy pulled out of the trash , Of course she brought it to me last night... Everything ends up at my house.

If you live any where near the Midwest stay warm and stay safe.
