So I got everything organized. I got a hutch top for one cabinet, brought in blanket chest from another room, and a chifferobe I got at an estate auction. So now it was time to paint the furniture. I've always like black furniture. So I went and painted the chest and hutches black. Beware it's scary.... Yikes.
So I next painted my hutches a bright turquoisey color. The blanket chest I painted heirloom white and then antiqued slightly. I like the room much better now. The blinds are getting replaced this week. I'll explain the brown spots on them later.
I used half of a set of bi-fold closet doors to hide some ugly shelves.
This is the chifferobe. I still need to paint it. Any color suggestions? I'm thinking white. I got this for $15.
The new window seat already has Mr. Miyagi's seal of approval. Okay now I'll explain the blinds. Can you see the burn mark on the blinds right by Miyagi's ear? You're thinking I got a candle too close right? Nope it and several spots were caused by the good 'ole hot Texas sun. I had dark brown suitcauses on top those plastic cabinets, and the sun reflected off of it, through the blinds I might add, and almost caught the blinds on fire.
So anyways here is my new work space. Hope you enjoyed the tour. I am sure glad I am done. Now on to more adventures.....

So here is little Bella sleeping in her little dog bed.
Avery says see I'm not so big, I can fit in a small dog bed. He did this by himself, I might add. Reminds me of the Fat guy in a little coat scene from the movie Tommy Boy.

Hopefully I'll get to post pics of the finished cabinet soon.

Seeing the Divine Bette Midler in Vegas!
Having a three great shows this year.
Getting to work in my yard with my side kick.
Getting a new exterior put on my house while I was gone to Vegas.
Sneaking in a cat nap or two.
The highlight of the year was WINNING a coulinary adventure to San Fransisco, and getting to take my cousin with me.
This is probably my favorite pic of the year. During our night out with the food critic, the candle holder reminded she and I of Krypton (Superman's home.)
Another pretty pic from our trip, this was taking at an awesome farmer's market in from of the Ferry Building. I've never see or eaten so many varieties of fresh fruit and vegetables.
And last but not least I finally got my scooter I've been wanting for years.
