DIY Projects! Show Them Off!!

organizing mission monday

I have been working on several DIY this last weekend.  I am not quite finished with them yet.  But I am working on my dining room decor, creating a mud room in my garage and a couple other little things.

I have painting underway. I wanted to be able to show you my finished dining room today, but alas…{sigh} it decided to be a super humid rainy day and my 2nd coat of primer wasn’t drying well on my furniture.

I’ll show you what pieces I have been working on!

DIY Chandelier Makeover – “BEFORE”

This is my “BEFORE” picture of my chandelier.  I’m so excited for this one!! Hoping to finish it tomorrow, but I have to go back to the store to get something else before I can finish.

Dining Room Table “BEFORE”

You all gave me the advice to paint my dining room table and chairs.  The chairs won’t happen right away, but I am going to refinish them also.  But the table will hopefully be completed tomorrow.

That is just a hint of what I’m working on.  I’m also really excited to have an actual “mud” room. My son said, “You can’t have a mud room in the garage, because then it’s just called the garage.” lol

But I’m doing the best I can with what I have. Unless we add on (which would be silly in this neighborhood, we’d never get our investment back) I will never have enough room in my tiny laundry room for a mud room. Since we got the shed, it cleared so much out of our garage – that I have the room to work with.
