My blog for today:

Last night Mason, 7 years, was reading to us and he pronounced the word "tidy" as "titty". I lost it.

Kids Toy Room

When we bought our house last spring, we loved the bonus room over the garage. It's a huge, open space for the kids. The problem is, it's a huge and open space. After purchasing some gently used furniture, adding a fresh coat of paint, and a little organization - the room is done. I'm not 100% satisfied but I probably never will be. *sigh*

TV Unit: Before and After

We've been busy in the garage...

My Parents had this TV unit for like 20 years. When we moved into our new house last Spring, they kindly gave it to us for the kids toy room. It's a lovely country oak with gold fixtures. Such a beauty.

I almost forgot to take a picture of the before. Which is why the doors and drawer are missing.


Our Bosch sander came in handy.

Coffee Table - Before and After

So I bought this awesome coffee table from my boss. Yes, my boss. Aside from missing hardware and a few bumps and bruises, it's in great condition. The man of the house sanded the entire piece for me. Buy a power tool and you can rope them into any project.
