~thank you~

Thank you, Thank you
to everyone who has left me such nice comments on this blog! 
I am so sorry it seems as if I am not responding BUT, for some reason, that I can't figure out,
I can't even comment on my own blog!!!!  It is so frustrating!
So Thank You!

*****P.S.  Lara, What a neat piece you found...
I would definitely paint it. I just love how paint can transform a piece. 
Best of luck to you!

~plasma tv console #2~

This will be the 2nd one I have done in the last week!
This console is for my friend Christine.  She found it on KSL, here in Utah.
It has a few issues I will need to fix such as a WARPED door :(
The plan is to just build 2 new ones...
I will also be adding beadboard and new hardware.
I plan on having it finished this week.

~exciting news~

I have some very exciting news to share....
We are expecting our 5th baby here at the Francom household!!!
Everyone is very excited, I'd say I'm a LOT overwhelmed but, it will be great :)
At least I will have a lot of help.  My kids' ages are from almost 13 - 3 years old so it shouldn't  be too hard.
I still plan on working as much as possible before the little one arrives...so,wish me luck!
Have a great weekend!

~finished plasma tv console~

I think this is now my NEW favorite piece :)
I wish the picture quality was better...these were taken right at dusk and again I have NO photography skills :(
I found this on KSL and my neighbors just so happened to be looking for something to
house all their tv components so, it was a win win!

It was painted Antique White (Four Chairs), distressed and polyurethaned.
Once again I stripped the top and stained it with several coats of walnut stain.
Beadboard was added to the doors as well as new hardware from Hobby Lobby.


Thanks again Michelle and Josh !

It will also be given new hardware, appliques and moulding on the doors and will be listed for $325.

I  LOVE with these tables...
I just refinished these for my friend Kallee.  We were trying to mimic her GORGEOUS kitchen table set from Four Chair's, here in Utah.
I don't normally strip furniture to the bare wood because it can be quite tedious but, I'm sure glad we did!
The contrast between the wood and the painted legs is perfect.
Honestly, these pictures do not do it justice, I for sure am not a photographer by any means :(
They were all painted Linen from Four Chairs, stained walnut, and polyurethaned.
The coffee table top was also stained walnut and then espresso to deepen the color, all from Four Chairs as well.



Thanks, Kallee
