Last week I ordered a settee from a home catalogue .I mistakenly put rush delivery and it pretty much came the next day!!!! I hadn't told my hubby I bought it and thought I had a few weeks to tell him. Well, he saw the box and didn't seem too phased until I made him build it.My son and I tried for over 30 minutes to fit two pieces together . It looked like it would have been a piece of cake but it really wasn't.So here it is.My hubby calls it the "DOLL COUCH" meaning it is too small for anyone to sit in. I love it!!!

Summer organizing

School is out and I finally have a little free time ,Not too much but enough to start organizing my house. Friends of ours gave us an armoire that is huge!! It is in the French Country style which is one I really like!!! Luckily my two brother in laws came to visit the day we picked it up otherwise it would have been Trent and I trying to carry this thing!!!!! I had not seen the armoire before i said that I would take it so it was great that Trent's brothers arrived just in time!!!!! I really love it.I put in the living room and our tv fits perfect inside,Today I went out and bought baskets to put our dvd's,video games and other items away. It makes such a difference visually to hide the tv and all the stuff that goes along with it.I hate cords and video game controllers so this is such a blessing!!!!! Here are a few pictures!!!!

New again!!!

I wrote a post in Jan. about getting a new table for xmas.I absolutely love my table.Well,in our house it is hard keeping things looking new for long!!!! The table got some scratches ,which is ok but then disaster happened.My husband took off a plug in from the outlet and left it on the table. The scented oil leaked and ate away part of the finish.I was so upset because it was a present and I was having a bad day.I basically whined about it for a while and then the kids gave different ideas to fix it.My boys said I should paint it.I was thinking I would refinish it, but I ended up painting it black and adding 4 layers of shellac to protect it.Here are some pictures of the ordeal and the finished table.

Shiny and new!!!!

I wrote a post about my new"fridge".At first we wanted a stainless steel one but renovating the house has put us on a budget and we still need a new sofa so the stainless was scratched off the list!!!!! My second requirement was that it needed to be BIG!!! I didn't realize how small our last one was until the new one arrived!!!!! I am able to organize much better now!!! Here is a picture,We chose black because with 4 kids I thought it would stay cleaner!!!!

We FINALLY bought a new refrigerator!!! We have been talking about buying a new one for at least 6 months!!!! We looked and looked and finally we saw one we liked at Lowes .It was on sale and then we got another 10% off.It is HUGE compared to our old one.I never thought I could be so excited about an appliance( except for my vintage stove) but I am so happy!!!!! I will post a picture later today!!!!
