Back in December we brought free furniture from family to Utah. Stephen and I hammered off the (perfectly working) wood handles, We (Stephen & Michael) filled in holes with putty, sanded the furniture, Stephen and I painted it, then Stephen drilled holes and put in new handles. And my mom painted the rooms in the mean time. Oh, the hours...
bedroom - before
bathroom - before
dresser - before
(post wood handles being chopped off:)
armoire - before
painting process...so many hours
This week we finally made a duvet cover, much to Stephen's dismay. He was perfectly happy with just the stuffing as a bedspread. Eventually he'll love it, because I certainly love my ruffles! My poor mother has spent so many hours and days sewing ruffles for me, I have a life-long love affair with them:)
finally finished, 6 months later...
all done personally - walls, headboard, pillows, duvet, bedskirt, dresser, curtains
13 rows of ruffles, but only (mainly...) on my side
we love how the furniture turned out
Thanks Dave & Cami for wanting to get rid of so much furniture
bathroom - after
Aleasha said it looks like a hotel (the white towels)
I've been to a lot of hotels, I like hotels, so I took it as a compliment!
the rest of the house is still in progress, just a few finishing touches...
