I found this little table, and I just couldn't pass it up. It was too unique not to get, though it was sort of an odd piece. In my mind, I decided that it was originally a Japanese dinner table. You know how they all sit on the floor to eat! I mean, it was low to the ground similar to a coffee table, but way to big to be a coffee table! Not to mention the split in the center and latch underneath. It was like the table separated to accommodate leaves to make the table even larger. Sadly, those got lost over time apparently.

So, yesterday I went to the dentist for a cleaning. Just your typical, run of the mill, every
6 months 2 years...cleaning. So, I thought.
I'd been procrastinating on going to the dentist for a cleaning. Not because I hate it or anything, but just simply because procrastinating is what I do! Then on Monday morning I work up and the gum near one of my wisdom teeth was hurting...and that gave me the kick in the butt I needed to finally call. My cleaning appointment was set for that Thursday (yesterday).
A little background on my pearly whites. ;) I'm pretty lucky all things considered. I literally had NO wisdom teeth in the top of my mouth. They just never formed. They must have procrastinated too long. haha. I had braces when I was in high school, and because my teeth were crowded at the bottom, they pulled two lower molars. That made just enough room for my bottom, and only, wisdom teeth to come in.
So, my wisdom teeth have been happily hanging out in my mouth for...shoot probably at least 5 years now? They never bothered me. Though they weren't in completely. They were lower set than the rest of my molars and like 1/4 of each one was still covered by gum.
Enter Thursday, and I go to the dentist. I told him about my gum hurting (which hadn't stopped for 4 days!), and they did x-rays, etc etc. I figured they'd want to pull my wisdom teeth at some point. He tells me that the one is infected because a cavity had actually formed underneath the gum that was partially covering the tooth (lucky me huh). Then he mentions that he can "just go ahead and get that done for me today"...I'm like TODAY???

These poor chairs sat in my garage too long. I'll bet they were cold. :( I finally decided to give them the makeover they deserve! Now they are beautiful, mid-century modern black and white chairs!
So, here is what the chairs looked like before. They were pretty meh, but they had a fun mid-century modern feel. The cane was also in perfect condition, so I swooped them up!

Looove this! Okay, so I'm gonig to be up front and say that this took a LONG time! Just to wrap the "O" in yarn took me 2 hours. Buuuuut, if I had it to do over again....I totally would!!!
I wanted to step way from the traditional heart shaped Valentine's Day wreath. Nothing wrong with them, I bought myself one from JoAnn's last year...think I'll use it in my house someplace. This wreath is so unique and unexpected!

I bought this dresser and another one to refinish and sell. If you follow me on Facebook you might have seen the photo of the befores already!
When I saw this, I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it. Then I decided that it would be a sin to paint all of that gorgeous tiger wood. Yet, it still needed a little bit modernizing. :)

I think I'll refer to this as the "I miss my husband" gallery wall. This is one of the many things on my DIY deployment list, but I decided to go ahead and finish this one because I realized that I always have to go to Facebook to look at pictures. Can you believe I literally had no family photos hanging up in our house? Zero, ziltch, nada. NONE! What kind of woman am I? lol (in hindsight there are a few in the guest room)
