Moving on up.....

Well, we finally decided that it was time to
move on up to a bigger place.  I am so excited
to move (well not the packing/moving/unpacking
part)!  I have collected, over the past few months
several key pieces of furniture that were just
begging for the right place to live.

Now they will get their chance to be reborn,
repurposed, repainted, reupholstered or just
generally re-done!  Can't wait!

If you will bear with me while we get
through the necessity of moving - the
"other side" promises to be an ongoing
smorgasbord of furniture and decorating
delights.  Here are just a few of the pieces
we (Mr. Biff has to take some credit here)
have collected to work on:

Mr. Biff picked up this beauty today - a
pedestal table has been on my "most wanted"
list for a long time - this one has a leaf as well.
You will never guess how much it cost.....
nothin', nadda, zero, zippo, zilcharooni!!!
Can't you see it with a walnut top and distressed feet?

 Hutch - to be reborn in white
 Fireplace (mantel only) to be shabbied up....

 Headboard for spare bedroom - picture me minty
green and distressed....

Mr. Biff's (working) stereo cabinet - white maybe? 

These two little beauties will be a lovely blue in
their new lives....

Soooooooo much more to show and tell - such
fun - I can't wait!!  I started my Pinterest boards
to gather let's get movin'!!

Peggy, Congrats on your move to a bigger place. I'm going to envy you once you start working on your 'creations'. Ahhh, the work, the sweat, the paint dripping everywhere...soo much fun! Can't wait to see the beauties once they're resurrected!

Congratulations and good luck on your move! The suspense is going to kill me. I can't wait to see the transformations!

I can't get the theme song of "The Jefferson's" out of my head now! :)

Jennifer - I have been singing that song for the last week - I am driving my hubby crazy! I just wonder how I am going to get all this done!! Should be FUN!
