Two "In the Works" Projects

Here are two projects I have been working on and will hopefully finish this week. I have a tendency to be all gung ho in the beginning and then lose steam and take forever to finish. Ya know? The first is an old radio cabinet I bought for $5 at a yard sale last summer. This picture is after I already started painting it.


The second is a mural in my son's bedroom. It is definitely not professional by any means, but my husband and I are doing it and that makes it extra special.


I will show you both projects when they are finished. Have a terrific Tuesday friends!!!

Hey Miss Homemaker!!!
I can't wait until you reveal your masterpiece!!! I need to go shopping with you some time. I thought about you when I went to the thrift shop last week. I picked up two items that had you written all over it. A wooden box with white and yellow checker patterns all over the top of it. The other was a small wooden tray painted the same color. I got both for $4.00. I will have to redo them both but it will be worth it!

That radiator cover is so unique...ya just don't see stuff like that anymore. I can't wait to see what you do with it. And you're right about the mural, it is so special when you do special, heartfelt things yourself to make your child's room beautiful and cozy. You do a great job of making your entire home beautiful and cozy for your family.

Neat finds! Wondering what you will do with the old radio cabinet.
The mural is so special - your son will love it and you and your husband are having quaility time doing it. That's what having a home is all about.

That mural is going to be awesome. It reminds me of a Richard Scarry book.
