She's Healed with Her Savior

It's been a week ~ one that I don't wish to re-live.  My mom was ushered into heaven on Monday evening and greeted by her Savior.  Her fight here was finished.  My dad, brothers, and I were by her side.  I celebrate her life, fight, and the fact that she is now healed walking on streets of gold.  Please continue to pray for my family ~ thank you.

Not Such a Good Time in My Life

To all my loyal followers ~ Please hang in there and keep following.  I'm in the middle of a family crisis and I don't know exactly when it will be over.  My mother is dying from brain cancer and all of my free time is dedicated to being with her and helping my father care for her at home.  She's been in a battle with this terrible disease for the last 11 years.  I've been dealing with all this since March ~ so for now, my blog is in a state of hibernation.  If you have a free moment, could you send a prayer or two up for her? 

Thanks so much

Election over ~ not even going into how I feel about the outcome.  I'm just going to go on with the makeover reveal.  If you remember this is what I was working on ~

Something that I have wanted to use and upcycle for a long time, but just couldn't figure out how.  That is until I discovered that it was the perfect size for something that I needed to organize.  So out came the spray paint and ta da! 

A whole new piece of furniture!  I really cannot believe how a can of spray paint changed this.  It has went from something that I couldn't stand to look at into something that looks like it costs a nice chunk of change.  And it fits in this spot perfectly!

So what am I using it for ~ to organize these that the kids are always using.

Their DVD collection.  I've tried keeping it in the entertainment center, in baskets ~ just about anything.  However, it always ends up all over the house, empty cases, DVDs in the wrong cases, etc., etc.  We are a big movie family and it seems like someone is always watching a DVD.  They needed to be easily accessible, but I wanted them to look decent as well.  This shelf has saved the day!

Next week I'm going to try and get back on the Makeover Monday and Finish Friday schedule again.  Already working on Mondays project ~ just hoping it will be done by Friday :)

Makeover mania!

So many makeovers to little time to blog!  I've got a few spare moments right now and wanted to share the latest project.  This is a shelf that was left in one of the homes we have purchased.

I never knew exactly what to do with it ~ it was quite ugly, but sturdy and had lots of decorating space.  It's been in many spots since, but it's never looked right anywhere.

With downsizing into this home, I considered selling it because I just wasn't happy with way it looked.  However, I discovered that it is perfect for a specific item that needs a home.  The color, or lack of, needed lots of work.  So, out came the spray paint again and it's a whole new piece!

I'm hoping that it will be ready to share tomorrow ~ so you will have to come back to see!
