Hi my name is T & I might have a problem.. I buy ugly things online so that I can 're-finish' them. I scour craigslist for hours just so I can find furniture that needs a little fixing up and extra lovin' and make it into a masterpiece. Not to toot my own horn, but my re-finished dresser looks good for being a first time piece. Pictures to come on Sunday. I drove way out of my way on Wednesday to buy 3 nightstands to do the same thing to. Mr. is now saying our bedroom is full of garage sale furniture! Call me old fashioned but in the last year, I have fallen in love with non-traditional pieces. EVERYONE has the same couch as us.. I hate it.
I want people to come to our house and think.. 'wow, this is put together so nicely'. They dont have to say those exact words, but anything along those lines will do. Anyone ever seen the episdoe of Friends (FYI, I can watch Friends 753 times.. doesn't matter what episdoe, if Ive seen it 5 times before or not, I will still watch it) where Monica 'is the hostess' and thats all she cares about? Im totally up front, I love having people over at my house. I love cooking for people and having laughter fill my walls. It makes a house a home and like Monica, 'Im the hostess'.
I cant wait to move in a couple of weeks and go CRAZY decorating. I am about to burst with excitement. Poor Mr. G, he has no idea what's in store for him. Good thing he will be out of town for a good part of the month or his behind would be put to work helping!
Can't wait to share pictures, I have tons. Happy weekend, y'all!
