My life lately...

So here's what I've been up to lately...

Last night was a welcome back dinner for my brother-in-law as he just completed basic training and airborne school. We had a big group of friends and went to Bj's Brewhouse. Yumm! Their food is so good!

Here's my hubby & me...
 

And my yummy dinner, the cobb salad. It had feta cheese, red onion, avocado, a creamy garlic dressing and delicious seasoned croutons! 


 Last week I went to the Shecky's Girl's night out with my co-worker Mandy. We had a good time! Cloud Nine salon there curled my hair and straightened hers, so here's our after pics...we forgot the before's though! Oops!
I also got I cute hair clip that I need to show you soon!



Over the last weekend we also visited the Houston Urban Market Antique Show which was to die for! I loved their stuff! It got me in a very creative mood! :)
I'm off to the pool with my friends! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!

Cabinet DIY


The before pictures....ugly color and banged up!

Lots of scratched spots...

Boring handles...

After breaking the glass out with a hammer and a lot of muscle I had to fill in the gap.

I painted a base coat of Valspar's Thorny Brush:

Then used Valspar's Careless Whisper mixed with water for the white wash. I painted the mixture on and let it sit for a moment, then wiped off all excess with a rag.

Here I'm stapling on the chicken wire to the doors.

And....VOILA!!! It's finished!!!

Handles found on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $1.39 a piece!

Close up on the white washed finish.... 

Used the original hinges, but they were solid black so I lightly misted them with gold & white spray paint to help them blend in.

And with a little decor...

 Loving my new cabinet! As usual I just wish I had a house to put it in! At least I know I'll have some good decor when I get a place!! Addicted to chicken wire now too!

Birthday Weekend Photos!

Kemah Boardwalk!!

Corey made a friend... :)

Feeding the fish...

Walking along the boardwalk...

Enjoying the water view & breeze 
(a VERY strong breeze that day...hence the crazy hair!)

Dinner time!! Right by the water, it was lovely!

It was a nice low key weekend! Missed my friends this year, but glad I had my wonderful hubby!

Photos of my week

I haven't posted much lately and I apologize! I've been very busy working on my latest furniture reno project! It's coming along great and will hopefully share photos of it soon!! I also owe you photos of my birthday weekend! Until then here's some other pictures of mine...

 This bouquet was from my dear friend Madelyn, I came home after work on my birthday and there was a box from Pro Flowers on my doorstep! <3 her!!

 When shopping at Lowe's I found these wonderful whiskey barrels. I desperately wanted to get one to use as a side table or something but I wasn't sure, what do you think?

 Liz & I had a Cinco De Mayo party with homemade guacamole, pico de gallo salsa and margaritas! Yummm! Here's our friend Holly lovin' on my doggie Maverick!
 
Here are some flowers from the Houston Garden Center I found as we were flower shopping for Liz's house. I love the coral pink flowers like this! Looking forward to getting a house of my own to plant flowers at. Hopefully I don't kill them this time though! :/
That's all for now! 
xoxo
