Sick and Featured Again

Hello friends! How are you on the last day of January, just think tomorrow we can say “spring will be here next month”!
I started getting sick last Sunday it sure has put a damper on all I’ve wanted to do around here but I did manage to give my dumpster desk the first coat of gray and that’s as far as I’ve got on it! Just not enough energy folks!

The drawers…I’ve been thinking of painting the sides of them like of seen it done, just have to come up with a different color for it!

I can’t wait to get my office done and use the lamp on it, such a cutie!

Now on to my 2nd feature…
I was featured Wednesday at New House, New Home, New Life for the $3.00 basket I found at a church sale, I painted it with ASCP in Paris Grey!

Thanks so much Heather, it’s really gratifying to be featured when you do these projects, and sometimes they are the simplest and cheapest things to do, like the basket, only took me ten minutes if anything but oh, what an impact it made!
Also, I’ll be visiting all of you who have commented on my last two posts, as soon as I feel better, OK?
I’ll be joining these parties:

That desk is going to look fabulous! Not sure I'd bother with painting the sides/drawers but I would line them with vintage paper or fabric!
