90's gold glass top

For $6 at the Sally Anne and left over semi-gloss white trim paint, a 90's gold glass top transformation!    

In the past I've always seen these tables as tacky and cheap. I LOVE gold but never in this applique. Now that being said you can get beautiful gold pieces now in the design world, it's really made a come back.

This past fall I was tasked with furnishing a downtown Halifax home in less then a week, to get it rental ready, on a budget. When working on a budget I always splurge on the finer things like seating, fabric and linens. When it comes down to side tables or chairs I choose the best deals that ultimately require an over haul.

Here are the before pics:

Easily done, a good cleaning and three coats of white semi-gloss paint and there you have it, a cute and practical night side table.

River Build

About a year ago life threw us a curve ball and we decided to relocate to Miramichi for a short while. It made sense to build a home there because we are both from the chi and have a business that will be expanding. 

We started with a piece of paper, designing a simple form house to fit our lifestyle needs and wants.  We ended up with a very modern shed roof home - with a Scandinavian/European style.

Here are some progress pics, it's been a positive informative journey...

Above getting the driveway built. Below the floor is built.

I have so many design decisions to make now it's overwhelming! 

Bye for now,
