Love Paint!

This morning we have 2 lovely men in replacing the carpet upstairs, and the downstairs is stripped down to it's bare minimum ready for them to tackle tomorrow. Which gives me a fair amount of time today to read blogs, sort through old recipes and just potter rather than the usual household chores.

Seemingly unrelated, I have a few items of furniture that I'd really like to refinish. The coffee table, the buffet, and a couple of pieces that I bought off eBay with the distinct purpose of refinishing them, but never have. (All this in addition to the furniture that I now waant to make myself after finding this site that I shared a few days ago - yeah right!).

While on a bit of a Blog and Facebook hop today I have been introduced to this BLog. I'm sure that there are others out there like it (and if you know of any, please share), but this is the one that I found today. I love the way that Mike and Melanie refinish these items, and it's so inspiring that with a little effort and old ugly piece of furniture can be turned into a beautiful piece to be treasured.

I love paint! Is there nothing a little bit of effort and paint can't do???

Now, to energise me into getting things done, I am adopting Kim Archer's mantra. She has decided to share it as a beautiful, inspirational poster. So head over to her Blog to check it out. Maybe it's something that you can use to get your stuff done.

Enjoy your day.

Found you through BFS :) Thanks for sharing the links, I love Kim's mantra. I also love painting and repurposing things and can't wait for spring to really be here since most of that is done in our backyard and workshop.
