**A note to my Facebook followers**
Turns out if you're following me on Facebook and relying on updates there to know when I've posted something new, you are almost cetainly not seeing all of my updates and new post links. FB has started requiring payment if we want to reach all who have "liked" our pages. Bummer, huh? Instead, they only send my updates to about a third of those who have "liked" The Chronicles of Home. If you'd like to stay better updated on my new posts you can scroll down on the right sidebar until you see "Follow by E-Mail" and you'll get an e-mail letting you know when I've posted something new. You can also scroll a bit farther down and click "Join This Site" to have my updates sent to you via Yahoo, Google, or Blogger. I couldn't wrap my head around Twitter when I tried it before but maybe I'll have to give it another shot. I'm pretty bummed that Facebook is turning mercenary.
Enough housekeeping...onto my latest projects!
Some weeks I spend all of my "work time" (naptime and after kiddie bedtimes) on a single project. My niece's chair was one of those - I spent every free minute for three weeks on that baby! This week I've started on a whole bunch of projects but haven't finished any, so thought I'd show you a sneak peek of the lot.
I found exactly the mirror I wanted for our entryway but didn't love the color, so am working on an antique gold finish.
I have the base of a thrifted table painted black and will be upholstering the top to make a little bench seat.
I finished one of the four new drape panels for our kitchen. This stenciling business yields lovely results, but it is not a quick fix!
Finally, the last of my DIY projects for my friend's sons' bedroom is underway. I'm doing a paint treatment on a couple of wood-block mirrors for over the boys' beds.
Can't wait to show you the finished projects in the coming weeks. Happy weekend, all!
