Well, here is what I will be working on this weekend.
I'll be picking a finish and completing this nightstand... I keep going back and forth on how I want it to look. Part of me (the part that usually wins the battles) wants to keep it neutral. A nice muted grey or crisp white color would be perfect. However, a small part of me wants a pop of color. Something unexpected next to the muted color palette in the bedroom. Turquoise or yellow or even a stenciled pattern on top.
I'll be redoing this old dresser. I use this table in my dining room for extra storage and a focal place to display items on the top. At first, I wanted to sand it down and refinish it. However, after about five minutes and loose pieces of the water damaged top flying everywhere...I realized that wasn't going to happen. I think I'm going to like how I decided to finish it even more than my original plan. This piece doesn't fit in with my plan to focus on my bedroom - but I need to get it back in the house from the garage (which is also my woodshop).
I'll be creating some inexpensive wall art, like this from Ballard Design. I needed a few pieces of art wall for my wall over the bed. I loved this idea and thought it would be super simple to recreate.
And I'll be working on some trim, lighting and bedding in my bedroom. I found this adorable pillow case made by The Handmade Home and loved how she used scraps of fabric to create a cozy focal point on the bed. It is such a great idea.

I'm going to keep the bedroom a surprise until I actually finish the nightstand. I just need to figure that out first. Wish me luck!
