Cheering us on through these marathon days was our unofficial mascot - a giant painting of Hank Williams, Jr. that we found in the garage. Turns out, when you shove a garage full of stuff and forget completely what is in there for six months or so, Hank shows up! (This is not an endorsement of Hank or his music - he was a freebie during a furniture swap.) Don't judge us!
The word of the week was "funky" (as in, "Should we paint this gray or be funky?" "Definitely funky!!") and we chose some wild colors! It's Spring at last for Dumped and Discovered! Take a look at all the turquoise, green, and "raspberry" going on in my "Warehouse" below!
Yes, that is the dining room that we slaved over a few weeks ago, now remodeled again into a storage facility for the prettiest furniture you've ever seen, if I do say so myself. We took THREE carloads of stuff to the Poet (one of the "cars" is a truck, another is an SUV and the third is my sister's magical Honda that holds more than the other two combined, she swears). All of the furniture in the Warehouse is awaiting its trip to the Poet, and this is the first time I've been this far ahead since we started this endeavor. I'm loving it!
Here's a picture of the goodies that made the trip to the Poet this week - you'll be hearing more about individual pieces as soon as I get some energy to tell you about them! For now, we're heading to bed at 9:30 p.m. for the seventh night in a row. We were party animals this Spring Break!
