CL Find: Vintage Side Table & 2 Drawers

18 Sep

Found these gems on Craig’s List for… Free! I love the vintage two tier side table. I’ve wanted one since I saw a listing not too long ago but was not willing to pay for it. The person who put these out was an artist. The drawers and side table are covered in layers of paint. So we will sand them down, paint, maybe decoupage, and throw on some nice knobs. My head is spinning with endless possibilities. I think we will take this project on a couple months from now. I want to do the side table first. So excited!

Along with these items, I found a few pieces of tiles, granite rocks, new picture frames with matting, vintage wooden tray, and a cork board. Aside from the granite rocks, I have ideas to up-cycle the rest of the items. I see an Etsy account in the near future.

I love CL because you can find what you need for free or pretty darn cheap. I am definitely the creative type, refurbishing furniture and other items seems like it will be a fun hobby. I’m still looking for a book shelf. We have books and other items that need a home. I’d like to find Bear Cub’s books in a neat area rather than rummaging through boxes when we move into our new home. Then again, Dr. Seuss is coffee table material.



It’s Raining, It’s Pouring!

23 Dec

*Sigh* It rained last night through this morning and uhm, it’s still raining,¬†hard. It’s almost 4:25pm, my poor dog hasn’t gone poop since last night… That’s a long time! Lucky for me, he’s not the type to explode in the house. We had a break from the rain for a few minutes so at least he went pee. I just feel bad for him, he absolutely hates the rain, and with good reason.


Normally, I love the storm but my cuddle buddy/fiance is at work. He didn’t come home last night, he was so busy with work sooo I’ve been “solo.” And then I got to thinking, I’m never actually alone. My little bear cub is with me every where I go. It’s weird in a way, I have this¬†little human life inside of me preparing himself to make an appearance in about 4.5 months. We are sharing a bond that no one else will experience except other mothers, obviously. Typically, I would feel lonely but knowing he’s in my tummy just hanging out is comforting.

I also have Homer, my parents, my 2 brothers, and the internet to keep me entertained but it would be so nice to just feel the warmth of my fiance. Just isn’t the same without him. I’m so looking forward to later tonight when he comes home.
