Life's Unexpected


Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those 

who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

I need some encouragement.  
Since reading your comments makes me so happy I have turned to you guys.

Last week I was informed that my beloved job at Finders Keepers was going to be gone at the end of December.  Many of you know that it was pretty much as close as I could get right now to my dream job. I will miss the excitement of paring each person with the perfect piece of unique furniture when they came into the store.   Although they will be closing their doors, they will still be refinishing furniture out of the work shop.   I will go back to one or two furniture transformations a week!  So get ready for a load of new posts and some visits from my fellow D.I.Y.ers!  New year here I come!

My first project will be...

It will be for my daughters room.

 Do you see how the legs match?

  The decals also match!

  I will have an entire matching Antique bedroom set for my little girl for under 100.00 dollars! 

I am so happy about that.

We will also be doing a little painting and wall paper wainscoting!  

we might even get as far as putting her bed together.  

Im going to have to get back into the swing of things so bare with me as I figure out a routine. 



  1. I'm sure it will be beautiful and can't wait for the reveal.

  2. Oh noooo!! Finders Keepers is going out of business?! I LOVE that little shop! I'm sorry your dream job is ending too :(
    That antique armoire will be so cool for your little girl, (it already is so cool!)
    Happy New Year,

  3. Worst news ever about finders keepers, I can't believe it. The bedroom furniture is charming, I can't wait to see the finished project!

  4. So sorry about your job. That wardrobe is amazing I cant wait to see what you do with it!
