Then I kept blogging when we moved away from all our family and it was a way to for our family and friends to keep up with us.
Then after dad passed and I coped by doing projects and it was a brag board of sorts.
But now I blog because I get to meet the neatest and sweetest people.
Mandie from Alter'd is one of those great people.
Both of our dad's passed at the age of 53.
Mine this past December and hers this past April.
We are both grieving and doing projects.
It is a little easier to go through things when you know someone else is going through the same issues as you.
If it wasn't for my blog we would have never "met" and I am so thankful that we have.
Now to the fun part.
Mandie is a pro at painting furniture.
Just look at some of her work.
She is really good.
For those of you saying to yourself. "Well that would be nice to be able to that myself, but I have no idea how to start."
Well you are in luck, cuz Mandie has an ebook that tells you exactly how to paint your own furniture.
This is a great ebook!
Mandie tells you exactly what you need.
And when I mean exactly, I mean EX-ACT-LY.
She tells you the precise colors to use, the brand of sander, brushes and glaze that she feels is the best.
Remember this table?
Well after reading this ebook I went out and bought the glaze she recommends and glazed this baby.
I just love what the glaze did to this table.
Doesn't it look great with the cabinets?
I took this before picking up the superman cape on the floor and while I was decided how to arrange the accessories on the cabinets. So if you would, please look past the mess and look at the colors. Thanks : )
I really like it with the cabinets, but the problem is that is won't go with my couch.
Oh well. Back to Craigslist it goes.
