What's Up?!

Oh my goodness, you must be wondering what I've been up to? Why no more posting you say? I don't really have any good excuses. I'm still moving. Still creating. Just not doing a very good job of documenting anything! Here's a look at some of the things I've been working on since I posted last:
(in no particular order, pictures from my phone!)
 I made some tea light candle holders from birch logs. Just drilled a big-O hold with a special paddle bit.
Greatest makeover of 2014 (next to refinishing our hardwood floors). 
Concrete countertops and tile backsplash (and undermount sink!)
A L L   D I Y  (or DIO-Did It Ourselves!)
More detailed blog post on all that some other time!
Entertaining family for Thanksgiving called for me to make a buffet for our dining room. 
Worked out great and now were using it in the basemet as a tv/blanket/wi console/DVD stand!
 Cloth napkins from canvas drop cloth!
Spray painted leaf as place-marker.
Recovered this chair in my bed room with a 
simple scrap piece of linen fabric and painted on silver polka-dots.
Made this light fixture for my foyer, and a smaller one for upstairs in the hallway. Used some of the hardware from my existing light fixture and garden orb from Target. Love Love Love to outcome!
More detailed blog post on the DIY for this one.
 My first attempt at plumbing... installed this new faucet!
Found this little one on the curb. Painted it green (from one of those little sample paints) and added this gold pull from Hobby Lobby. Now it's a fun accent piece in the kids bathroom.
Picture this guy with a dark oak look in it's former life-$10 at Salvation Army. 
A little chalk paint and updated finish on the hardware.
One Saturday afternoon we put together this firepit. 
The guy in the blue did most of the work! But these girls are tough enough!
Celebrated the new teenager of the house, my favorite son (my only son!) 
with a triple chocolate kit-kat, m&m cake.
Repainted and recovered this antique chair. 
Little secret, the black and white striped "fabric" is really a blanket from IKEA!
 Took down the wallpaper in the dining room. 
It started when I just tore a tiny little piece off and then there was no turning back!
I also painted this chandelier, the ceiling and walls. 
Do not be decieved by the guy in the redsweatshirt-he tore one little piece off and then never came into the room again!

Painted the front door and added vinyl numbers.
Painted the dark oak cabinets in the kids bath. Chalk paint and hardware from Habitat Restore.
So that's all for now. Come back soon. I promised to post the details on some of these projects. 
I'm just having so much fun it's hard to stop and blog about it all!
