Home Sweet Home #70

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  It has been a busy week here.  I have been painting furniture and Hubs has been resurfacing our drywall and installing a new floor.   I was gifted "new to me furniture" from my generous family and I wanted to update the dining room.  This piece of furniture was a buffet with a damaged veneer so, I decided to paint it.

It has a coat of ASCP Duck Egg Blue on it but, I'm still not finished with it.  It still needs a paste wax, some buffing, and distressing.  Progress is happening!  

Now I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week at Home Sweet Home.
 Brooke at Creative Country Mom's Garden showed off her Lowe's Creative Ideas Gardener's Challenge.  Loved how this turned out!

Home is Where the Boat Is had the most wonderful Memorial Day picnic! 

Ann at Whimsy by the Sea created some pallet art that I adored!  You guys know how I love coastal!

Melissa at Daisy Mae Belle showed off a little kitchen scale she found that I loved!

Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!   It is wonderful to have you here! 
I will join these ladies today:
Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground 
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Home and Garden Thursday  at A Delightsome Life 
Creative Things Thursday  at The Vintage Farmhouse
Say G'day Saturday  at Natasha in Oz

Hi Sherry: I love your buffet project. That is going to be just gorgeous when you are through with it..I wanted to join your party but wasn't sure if my post this time would be appropriate as there is nothing really about the home. Let me know, if you can, and then I'll know for next time..Happy Thursday..Judy

That's a beautiful piece of furniture you inherited, Sherry! Can't wait to glimpse future vignettes on top of it:)Good Luck with your room renovation. Thanks for the party tonight. Hugs,Poppy

Love the color on your buffet makeover. Love that chippy green kitchen scale with the birds nest. Thanks for hosting. I added a post on the 'underpinings' of a home, the stuff that we hate to replace but seems inevitable. The hot water tank, the furnace and because the heat really does me in we added an heat pump (heat/air). Big changes, not very pretty. I facilitated (cleaned, moved stuff) and took lots of pictures while the guys worked. If the rain would stop I would work in the garden.

I find it is easier to go over that wonderful quarter sawn oak if you weren't the one who refinished it the first time. I have alot to "get over" at my house and want to move forward with this new look too!
