Reinventing our new home

We recently purchased a new home, and I'm thrilled to say that we will be moving in later this month.  I did a walk through today, and my action list is growing and growing.  Luckily, I plan to take a week off to paint and plan/execute some of my DIY projects.  We'll need some help on some of the bigger projects, but I just can't wait to settle in.


I don't have any before pictures to share yet, so in the meantime, I'll share some incredible pictures that my lovely friend Jessica took of the Reinventing booth this weekend.  I'm so lucky to call her a dear friend.  Along with her mad skills behind the camera, she is just as lovely in front of it.  Stop by to say hi to her at www.thewarriorgazette.blogspot.com.

We look forward to seeing you at Booth #1501 at the Frisco Mercantile!




Do you have some furniture you need reinvented?


Custom painting cards with pricing on the back.
I just love these scroll side tables with the lovely Provence pop inside the drawers.




Side view of the "Scotty" scroll side tables and "Violet" dresser .

Matching "Violet" side tables that match the dresser.

Love these Bee and Lady Bug pictures.  They will look great in a guest bathroom.

"Violet" dresser.  The inside middle drawers are painted to match the outside accents.  












I told you she is lovely!


Thanks for coming along for the ride.  I am suffering from seasonal allergies that doesn't mean we can't go for a fun cruise around the city today!

Update: I finally figured out the linking function :).

  20. Doing DIY projects adds a personal touch to the atmosphere of your new home. The beauty with this is you can choose the colors that you want to mix and match. The scroll side tables and "violet" dresser have a rustic look, which would look perfect in country-and cottage-style houses. Their paint colors are soothing to the eyes. The Reinventing booth definitely has a lot of treasured furniture and decors that you can use for your home.

  21. Packing for and moving to a new home is the most stressful part, but once you’re over that hump, it gets really fun. Once you’re all set up, the new house is going to start feeling like a new home, and you’ll be all settled in and cozy. I’d love to see what your new home looks like once you’re done! Good luck!
