I did want to share one of the projects and the place where I discovered this oh-so-simple fix for our couch cushions. She does a wonderful job of explaining. You’ll have to take a look. (The ones I made are white.)
My home is quickly turning white. All of my thrift store treasures have been slathered with a dreamy white color and i’m experiencing a little heaven on earth.
I live with the mindset that in a short time we will move but that doesn’t mean I can’t make ‘home happen’ as best as possible for this military family. I love fixing up old things and making them new. But don’t get me wrong some things are worth buying brand new.
I did head over to Goodwill yesterday to search for a pair of shoes for my son since he doesn’t own any. We did find a nice pair for $3 as well as an old wing back chair for $15!! I was thrilled to bring it home and give it a little TLC. However I should have smelled the chair but how weird would that have looked? Anyways I did spend some time cleaning it up. Here’s a few pictures ….
I needed to cover it for now since I will be researching how to make a slipcover for this chair.
This is what i’m thinking! I linked this picture back to the original source so you can look at the process and understand why i’m scared to begin!
There is a little peek into what i’ve been up to. I really have enjoyed being able to work on a few projects even on a tight budget. It forces me to be creative in such a deeper way. To tell you the truth I needed something to do to take my mind off of some things i’ve been dealing with. The stubborn girl in me wasn’t ready to face God on a few issues and i’m beyond thankful for the gentlemen in him that allowed me to wait.
Do you ever get off track with a good routine? For me having quiet time in the morning is a choice and sometimes it’s not easy to sit up with my hair a mess, reach for that bible and quiet myself before God. I’m tired and want that extra hour of sleep before my little guy wakes up! It’s selfish and not wise because that time spent with him is what prepares me to follow him all day and it’s when him and I decide who will lead.
Being able to approach his throne after i’ve fallen short is sometimes intimidating and hard but he’s there waiting for me not with a condemning word but a hopeful one and a chance to move forward. I LOVE that.
If you’re discouraged today by whatever you’re facing remember that he is for you.
Well I need to wrap this up and get to bed.
I have just about wrapped up the first chapter of my book and am getting ready to send it to a wonderful friend who agreed to help me edit! What an answer to prayer! This is a huge ordeal for me writing because it’s pouring out and sharing a story that isn’t always easy to tell but this message is worth sharing. Pray for me please!
Thinking and praying for you today.
