My first project of the new year

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.

The whole time he kept saying to himself...."What is she going to do with this thing?" Another project....

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 think it turned out so pretty.

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

It was so yummy! Better that any restaurant around here.

I even made a 'happy' plate. :)

We had a quite evening at home for our first New Year's Eve.

Didn't he do a great job? He even wore pink...for me. :)Hope you all are having a wonderful new year so far.

The mirror looks great. You have that talent to see something and see the finished product. I look forward to working on some projects with you.
Our first New Year's Eve was great. I wouldn't have wanted to spend it any other way. It was peaceful and no stress/drama. I look forward to spending more New Year's Eve with you.

It turned out beautiful! It matches the dresser really well. It was very nice of Stevie to hail it home for you! He probably thought it was some small mirror and was shocked when he saw how big it was! Look forward to seeing your next project and a Happy New Year to you!

I don’t even know how I ended up right here, but I thought this put up was once great. I don't recognize who you are but certainly you are going to a well-known blogger when you are not already ;) Cheers! florida car insurance
