Carrie invited me to stop over today to her awesome blog and introduce myself as well as show you a little about what I am passionate about. I have a passion for restoring and recreating unloved furniture. I love to take the old and make it new. A good furniture makeover is what it is all about! I also craft and create home decor, but my true love is furniture! Here is an example of some past projects I’ve done:
Hi! I am Stacey from Embracing Change!
Old Door Subway Art Table
Antique Telephone Bench
Hand-painted Chevron Antique Waterfall Dresser
Secretary Desk Makeover
I am a busy girl that really has no time for blogging
or restoring furniture yet I make time for what I love!
I am a pastor’s wife working alongside my love in ministry.
I have two adorable girls Emma (7) and Ana (4).
Here are my girlies this Easter:
I work full-time as a Director of a large day care.
I recently began a business with a friend of mine called The Blessed Nest – you can find our business website HERE.
Our little business is brand new. We are located in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Blessed Nest specializes in recreating furniture and making home decor!
Needless to say, I deal with a great deal of stress in a day.
I find painting and creating to be my outlet.
I always feel better when I have a paint brush in my hand.
I would like to share a redo with you today!
I promised my husband I would paint his cute
little antique desk for him.
We picked up this cutie at an antique shop outside of Gettysburg before we were married over 11 years ago.
I promised Chris I would get to redoing it.
Now I know how that mechanic feels after working
on so many cars and he
doesn’t have the time or energy to
worry about his own.
Needless to say, months went by.
The other day I decided I needed to buckle down and get it done and keep true to what I had told my husband.
It knew it would mean a lot to him.
I spent this weekend finishing that little desk up.
I am very pleased with how it came out!
Here’s my favorite part…THE AFTER!
I love it!
My husband thinks so as well!
I used ASCP in Old White and the cool knobs
are from Anthropologie.
I used Antique Walnut stain from Minwax on the top.
I think it has an African feel with the style of the knobs so I staged it with African figurines.
Quite suiting for Chris as he recently returned from
a mission trip to Kenya!
And in true Stacey style, I always name my pieces based upon what I feel to be the personality they exude.
This one is named Majestic Mwamba in
which the African meaning of the name is strong.
I think that is a fitting name!
Come and visit me sometime at Embracing Change. I would love for you to stop in or even follow me. I also have a Facebook page as well. I host a weekly linky party called Inspired Creations on Thursdays if you would like to link up any of your creations that may inspire others!
Thanks Carrie for the opportunity to guest post
on your amazing blog!
I am so thankful for the opportunity!
