Busy Bee goes HGTV!

Have I mentioned recently, that I LOVE my home.

I LOVE being home. I love being a home body.

This is my sanctuary…I could literally go weeks without leaving and not blink an eye. {can I get groceries delivered?}

Don’t we love a good makeover story? I do.

I am going to sound like a spoiled little ninny….but I was unhappy with our dining room situation. There was nothing ‘wrong’ with it, but my taste has evolved since we purchased this in 1999.IMG_1362

I was ready for an update, but buying a new set was out of the question….

But I did wrangle myself some new chairs with washable slipcovers. {Anything washable curls my toes. I heart you Pottery Barn}

And a simple update on the finish of the cabinet; the coach brought  home a gel wood stain.  The color: Java (I was not even tempted to drink it)

The stain was just enough to tone down the light spots…making this piece look a bit richer.


I also hit the buffet and the mirror in the living room.



All with my two little hands. IT was really easy…but a bit scary because if I ruined them, I had to live with it.

I love the results. SO happy.  So happy I could sing dangit.

Fa la la la la la la la laaaaa….well you know what I mean.

Who’s coming for Thanksgiving dinner?

We eat at 3:00, play football at 5:00 and sleep at 6pm. 

Can you dig it?
