Cheerful Chair Set

OK.....confession time!!
I'm a procrastinator!!  
A tried and true, 
waiting until the night before, 
saving it for the very last possible minute, 
making everyone around me crazy with anxiety, 
kind of procrastinator.  
( feels better to get that off my chest!) my defense, the last minute is when my best work is done!  I know right now you're saying, "Sure it is!" ....but I'm telling you that's the real truth!

I'm what I would call a T-H-I-N-K-E-R
and sometimes that can cause me more time, pain, & frustration than you might imagine.
For example....
Let's just say I'm out on my normal junkin' & pickin' routine and 
just when I'm about to give up....
That ONE perfect piece!!!  It is practically illuminated in lights with angels singing all around it!
(or at least that is what I'm seeing, which probably tends to alarm all the other customers around me when I'm giddy doing my jumping for joy dance!)

Anywhooo....back to my point.
(as you can see I'm not only a procrastinator, but I'm also VERY easily distracted!)

So I take my "perfect" piece home and I want to have an equally perfect refinish, because that's what it deserves, right?!?!

So I think, and I think, and I think.....
and I thunk, and I thunk, and I thunk.....
And the more thinking I do the more confused I become about what I should do!!
(hopefully I'm not the only one this happens to!)

And eventually what happens is that I've "overthunked" (is that even a word??)  it soooo much, there is no way on earth I can ever be happy with the piece...because there is no WAY it will EVER live up to my 'THUNKING" process!!

As a coping mechanism for this personality defect of mine, I've resorted to the
strategy....which is to buy pieces, take them home, let them sit around (some for a few years or more) and then wait for the day when I'm ready to start on them!

That little story was probably MUCH longer than I intended and if you're still reading, then 
because you are probably my Procrastinating Bestie!

But that is exactly what happened with these chairs.
I saw them,
I wanted them,
I bought them.

I thought they were so cool and would need a makeover equivalent of their greatness!!
But I got overwhelmed....
and distracted.....
and found other projects that were calling my name.

That is until about two weeks ago, when I was looking in my shed and happened to see the arm of one of these chairs peeking out.
It was like it was calling my name!
So out they came and off I went....immediately with a plan in my head for what they needed to become ---
A plan that was only THREE years in the making!
(I would like to say that's my personal best....but sadly, it isn't! )

So here is YOUR reward for sitting through that little story with me and letting me share just a little bit about myself!!

Check out these beauties BEFORE:

Cool, right?  Worthy of a fabulous makeover, true?

And here is the 

Hopefully you agree with me that these were sooooo worth the procrastination and the wait....because I don't think they could get much more perfect than this!

Kitchen Cabinet Makeover Reveal

We're so excited to share this kitchen cabinet makeover with everyone! 

The owner of this kitchen is a girl after my own heart!!....fearless, loves color, has a great eclectic style and is willing to try ANYTHING!!  We LOVE that about her!!  And that's what makes it so fun to work on projects for her.

Here is her kitchen BEFORE:
Very nice...but just your average oak cabinets.  And definitely not special enough for this gal. 
As you can see, she had already started some framing on the kitchen island for a very unique and super cool part of this project. 

And get ready for this....because here is the transformed kitchen AFTER:

And check out these fun and unexpected "extras" she included in her refinish.  This girl LOVES her chevron....& who wouldn't when it looks this cute!  I'd be opening the cabinets ALL DAY LONG just to see this unexpected surprise!!
 She also added some chalk paint on the inside of another cabinet to keep "To Do" and grocery lists.  Super fun and functional idea.
 And if you're anything like me, I can NEVER remember measurements!  So it's this conversion chart handy to have!
Some really fun ideas and a gorgeous cabinet makeover might we add!  We love the color combo, the barn wood, and this creative gal's passion for mixing it up and doing what makes her happy and gives her the kitchen of her dreams!!
