Yeah I'm still here...

In case anyone was wondering I'm still here!
I was a bad blogger before, but now that I have the demanding big kid job I'm an even worse blogger!

It's funny now that I'm not trying to be creative for the sake of my blog I'm actually doing projects!

One thing you can count on? I'm still taking crappy iPhone pics of my projects. 
Barely whipped out the DSLR last week to shoot some engagement pictures for friends.

I've been scoring some great finds on craigslist as of late. 
Probably due to my constant cursing of people that live anywhere but here 
that find amazing things for cheap!

I've been on the hunt for a round pedestal table for a few months now.
But I didn't want to pay more than $100 for the table and I wanted it to be wood.
Of course I scoured craigslist, but only found $200 crap.

Until my stalking paid off.

I picked this baby up from some questionable cat owners.
It's solid wood and came with 4 chairs (not pictured). 
How much did I pay for the entire set?
So after about $25 in paint and stain.
Plus HOURS of my life. 
I have a new dining set for $65

I looooove the way it turned out. 
I know my curtains are crooked...I think some shrunk.
Redecorating is my next project. But we all know how I have project ADD. 


  1. Love it. If you look, you will never be disappointed. I <3 repurposing. It turned out beautifully Jessica.

    1. Thank you! I feel like I was looking everyday and still coming up with crap… but this experience definitely made it worth it.
