What I’m Up To Today… {furniture + paint}

A few weeks ago my in-laws had an estate sale and were literally getting rid of everything. They are finally making the move to condo life and just will not have the space for a lot of their treasures. I was thrilled to be able to go over and pick out a few things. {It’s so much fun shopping when you don’t have to worry about a bill!} I grabbed 6 pieces of solid wood furniture each with gorgeous details!

So I’m starting with this little guy for my entry way today. Not sure what color I’m going to go with….I’m so indecisive when it comes to things like this! It will probably be painted a few colors before I actually decide which one I like best in the actual space!
I think I’m going to start with this…. we shall see!

I haven’t had a chance to look through the links yet for The Sunday Showcase Party but will be working on that later on today.

You still have time to link up and enter the Appleseed Gifts Giveaway…just click here.
I’ll be back later today with a few of my favorites!! Enjoy!
