Heart to Heart

Over the last 3 months I've been thinking about the blog and how I want to move forward with it. I was able to update the blog banners and background as well as add a few more links to my page. I originally wanted to keep transforming furniture from craigslist and thrift stores, but I have found that I have enough furniture for our home. I also have enough spray painted stuff to last a while. I have found that I am more minimalist than i realized. I am very much about less is more when it comes to stuff. So do I just do projects for the blog, but then what am I going to do with the items? I don't live in an area where the demographics can support a business of refurbishing furniture, or at least it would not be profitable enough for the time that would need to be invested.

 So I'm thinking I am going to focus more about living with less, simplifying, and leading a more intentional life. I still love to transform furniture and I do have a few items of furniture that could use a spruce up, but its just not at the top of the list just quite yet. My kitchen is also another big one, I thought I had the kitchen pretty much painted and just needed to screw the hardware back into the doors. Well, the top coat that I put on turned yellowish, so I now have a yellow shiny haze on my cabinets. Ugh! I think I am going to invest in some Benjamin Moore Aura paint that I have heard from other bloggers to be the best paint out there and you do not need a top coat for it and it can stand up to repeated scrubbing without paint transfer. That's my kind of paint!

I look forward to finishing up lingering projects so that I can post them on the blog. I have several projects that are ALMOST done, but I need to take the extra initiative to finish them for good, like my guest bedroom and what I've done in there. I'm also saving up to put new tile throughout our house, I'm hoping in the next few months that can be done.

I still love all things home and I appreciate all of my readers very much. Your comments make it worth taking the time to post about the things that I love. It always makes my day to see another person subscribe to my blog when I know there are so many other better and greater blogs out there. Thanks for hanging with me!
