I plan on getting at least one project done a month. I would say more...I will probably do more, however to not stress myself out too much I will just say one a month. :) Back in August my sister and I spent the day together for her birthday. We went to lunch and went 'thrifting'. We love spending time together doing that. Last time it was her time to find a bargain. This time it was mine. :) I found this mirror at a junk store....way up high on the wall of an old warehouse. I'd been in there several times...don't know how I missed it before. The guy said it had been there for a long time. He sold it to me for $20.00. We left it there and went to a few other stores. I had to call Stevie and get him to go pick it up for me. He said that when he got there he didn't realize that he was going to have to get it down from the wall too. Oooops! He said that they almost dropped it. So glad they didn't.
Well.....It turned out so pretty. After a coat of primer and two coats of paint. It fits perfect on my old dresser that I painted a while back. It even has a light at the top. All I have to do now is buy two little wooden disks to cover the holes at the top. It was missing two. I decided to go ahead and take a picture and post it because we are almost into the second month of the year. Gonna finish a new project for February. Or maybe two. :)
I also thought that I would show you what Stevie did for me for New Year's Eve. I had to work and I while was there He prepared for us a delicious dinner. He had the table all set and everything with some of my old Christmas dishes. He had bought me these pretty flowers for my desk at work during the holidays. (He must have had this planned.) lol
