I've Been a Busy Bee

In addition to looking high and low for a new hairdo, I have tackled several projects on my to do list. It feels so good to cross some things off my long list.

Lets start in the kitchen. Remember the beigey brown "island" that was sitting in the middle of the floor.

It's been transformed. I am on the lookout for some organizational baskets that I will use for mail sorting among other things. Oh, and I have big plans for a tablescape so be on the lookout.

And remember my painting dilemma. I decided with your help, of course, to paint the coffee tables black.

I ran out of paint before I could attack the sofa table with the black paintbrush, but I think it looks ok as it is. What do you think? Also, I am still searching for some pillows as well as fabrics for a mistreatment. Since I played around with the furniture placement I need to move the big picture so its centered over the couch.

Last but not least is my laundry closet. Oh, how I long for a laundry room, but in the meantime I decided that I would at least try to have my closet presentable.

I plan to continue with my decorating and organizing streak this weekend. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Okay, I LOVE the cabinet painted white. Great job! I also love the coffee table painted black and the console table behind the sofa. It looks good as is, but it would look good in black too.

    You could always tape off the glass on the table and use some black satin spray paint. It's a lot faster than painting by hand (I've learned the hard way). But don't feel like you have to paint it because it does look good.

  2. I love the island painted white!! I also love the table black. I think you should paint the other one black. :)

    Can't wait to see more!

  3. Looks great! Way to go you have been busy!!!

  4. LOVE the tables painted black!!! That totally stand out now and look so pretty! I love those. Also, I think the sofa table looks good as is too. I like to mix woods.

    That kitchen island is great too! Love it white.

    Thanks for the Homegoods tip! We don't have one but I will look at our TJMAxx. :)

  5. Psssst - you WON one of the prizes in my giveaway!!


  6. Everything looks great! Yeah, my laundry closet is a big mess and I want to paint it and make it very pretty and functional too.

  7. Love the painted cabinet and the black tables! I just painted a dresser for my kitchen. I've been depressed in there for 2 years! I'm posting pics soon. I think painting furniture is a great way to change things up a bit!

    Thanks for linking to me on your sidebar!

  8. I adore your kitchen island! It looks great. And your coffee table? Amazing! I think your sofa table looks nice the way it is, but if you had a chance and the time, you could paint it black to tie it in to the coffee table. :)
