Winding Down and Gearing Up

Here is the last of my mini redos. I painted this TV armoire over Thanksgiving and wanted to show it to you. I know you've seen tons of these around. We've had ours for years in the family room.I sanded it, painted it, and aged it, so we could move it into our bedroom to hold the TV. It looks new to me and I'll be happy with it now.
After Christmas, I get into the cleaning, organizing mode. I can't wait to get all the "stuff" put away and start in on cleaning. (it's been along time for that to happen). I also went to the quilt store and bought some yummy fat quarters to get me inspired for some projects to come.
We had a wonderful holiday-I hope you all did too. I loved visiting your blogs and reading comments that have come my way. Son goes goes back to school on Sunday, so I will be keeping myself busy to keep my mind off missing him, by diving in to some work, cleaning,organizing, and creating! Can hardly wait!


  1. Where would we be without paint - it's such a great transformation tool! Wishing I was in more of a cleaning, organizing mode. I need a little motivation to pack up all those ornaments... :-)

  2. Wow you have been so busy. Looking forward to seeing what you are making with the material. I hope he can travel by this weekend.Wow the snow up North!

  3. That armoire looks so great painted white! I'm with you on the cleaning and organizing. I can't wait to make Christmas go away, even though it will look so bare around here. And I'm so glad that our daughter doesn't go back to until the 10th. I miss her so much when she's away at school!
    Wishing you lots of happiness, good health and prosperity in 2011, Leslie!

  4. Nice work! I keep thinking about painting my white one a bright color. Happy New Year!

  5. I love the redo ! I definitely need to get in a organizing & cleaning mode . ;)
    Happy New Year !
