Unfinished projects

Remember this old hutch that I bought last year and had great plans for? Well...today is my day off and I started looking around the cottage at the 'MANY ' unfinished projects that I have started and decided that today would be the perfect day to get a couple f them finished! YAY!
I have been using her already to hold my sweet shabby rose dishes. She has a coat of primer on her and a partial coat of pretty 'cottagy' white paint. I just need to finish touching her up and rearranging my dishes inside and she will be ready for her debut.

My plan is to finish a project every time that I have a day off. I want to finish the things that I have started already before starting new ones. That has always been a "thing" with me. Too many irons in the fire and not getting them all done. Well...no more. That was one of my New Year's Resolutions and I'm stickin' to it.

I like your idea about finishing projects. I have several that need finishing up. I plan to finish at least one of them today. THanks for stopping by and keeping up with me.

Gabriel is so very precious. :D

Can't wait to see her all dressed up. Be sure to post a picture when you are done. Thanks for the motivation to finish all the half-done projects. I have two quilts that have been almost done for a year. Maybe I'll tackle those this weekend.
