Coffee Bar

A neighbor gave me this stereo console about a year ago, I knew I would figure out something to do with it!
And I did after watching my favorite new show Fixer Upper on HGTV if you don't watch this show, you need to it's awesome!!!!
 She made a coffee bar in a clients home and I was inspired so after much hard work, thanks to my very sweet husband!
 We have this fabulous new spot in our home 
 I love love love it!


What do you think? I would love to hear!

Christmas At The Library

Hey everyone! Not sure if anyone remembers me or not but I'm back! I don't know why I have not blogged in so long but I am ready to get back to it. I thought I would share how we celebrated Christmas at work (I work with some pretty crafty people) so here we go...
 Pam's book tree 
 our infamous book tree
 another view
 I turned a display case into a fireplace ( I plan on doing a post to share how I did this)
 my wreath made out of pages from a book
 Hope you enjoyed my little tour of the library at Christmas!
Bye for now

Valentine's Day at the Library

I saw this idea on Thinkgeek so I thought it would be perfect for us to do at work!

 all the staff picked out books that they have enjoyed reading. I wrapped them all in plain brown paper slapped on some hearts and stickers
 then labeled the books

check out this book, take it home, and unwrap it. Show it your favorite spots to read, share you favorite snacks or show it off to your friends.

Who knows, maybe there's a future for the two of you?

this book seeks (insert genre) lovers.

Cute right!
Did I mention I love my job!!!

Dresser redo

Here is our weekend project that I mentioned in my last post
It started with Noah's old dresser somehow he managed to break two of the drawers but I knew it still had some life in it :)
we painted it Dove white
 Johnny remove the middle piece of wood that held the drawer
and added a board for a shelf
 next we added contact paper to the back

 and now I have a stand for my popcorn machine
 yes I have noticed that we need to finish painting the bottom lol but otherwise 

I love it!!

 Last night we tried it out I love love love it!!!!
