Sometimes I think that my sis in love and I are on the same brain waves. We tend to have somewhat the same decorating style, and often we are doing similar projects at the same time without even knowing it. I love to paint things that just don't work for me anymore as does she. Her hubby once said that he had to make sure not to stand still for too long or she might just paint him too. He better be careful! Just kidding Javo! We both also love to decoupage, although I have to admit, she is way better at it than I am. Truly, the things she does with that stuff... wow! She makes AMAZING things. Like these boxes that she made me for my birthday a couple of years ago...

They have become quite popular. So much so, that she is now getting lots and lots of orders for them. She can personalize them with your own pictures, sayings, etc. I absolutely love mine.

So anyway, back when I was doing my girls' file cabinet makeover, she emails me and tells me that she just so happened to be doing my niece's desk as well. Of course, I couldn't wait to see it. Did I happen to mention that she is AMAZING??? Well, here is what she did...

See this desk? It was pretty unattractive before this makeover. Cream laminate top. Walnut brown trim around the top and walnut brown legs. It has gone from my sister, to me, to my other sis in love, and finally to Bibi. She decided it would go in my niece's bedroom, but first needed a face lift. I totally agree. So here it is in all it's decoupage glory!! What do you think? Man, I wish I had a before photo! This was not a pretty piece before!!

The magic of paint, paper and Modge Podge is seriously under rated people.

So I am getting ready to start on the laundry room paint project. I've been super busy this week, and couldn't get started. But today is the day. I have dinner (Pork shoulder for pulled pork sandwiches) slow cooking int he crock pot...mmmmmm!!,
The girls have a Wii game to keep them busy, and Alex is outside working on his car. I think this is as good a time as any. Wish me luck.

Have a great Saturday!

    Cute desk! Can't wait to see the laundry room paint project!

    We painted this weekend too; my daughter's closet. We moved her dresser in there to make more play space in her room.

    I'll post pics soon...
