A New Chair For The Master Bedroom

You know when you're in the middle of several projects and you just can't seem to finish one of them? 

That's where we're at right now. 

We've always had a running project list, but  I'm not talking about that.
We're trying to get our house ready to put on the market by summertime, which involves painting the master bedroom, the master bath and the office/bonus room, spreading 350 bags of hardwood mulch, fixing any little things that need fixing, staging  important rooms and giving the house a thorough cleaning
If it would ever stop raining when Mr. DIY is here, we could get the mulch spread. I was able to help a little bit by making the mulch look pretty, but this week I came down with a really bad cold and have been in bed since Wednesday. 
A few weeks ago, we/Mr. DIY painted the office, but we still need to put a few final touches on the room. 
Meanwhile, I've been looking for a few furniture items and accessories to dress up the house and thought I'd share a recent find.

New Life For A Dated Clock

I was just about to add this dated clock to our garage sale . We are trying to lighten things up around here and this clock just had too much gold on it and that funny little thingamajig on top.

Model Home Tour

When I was a little girl about  5 years old, my mother took me to see a few model homes in an upscale neighborhood near our home.  My mom enjoyed visiting them and I had fun going with her. Maybe that's why I've always loved visiting model homes.

Easter Breakfast Table

With Easter just a few days away, I figured I should get out of bed to at least set the Breakfast Table.
If y'all are wondering why I've been in bed, go to this post HERE
Last week we went to Chicago for my mother in  law's memorial and I've been really tired since we've been back and have been recuperating by just sleeping a lot. 
 I finally mustered up a little energy (about 20 minutes worth), and felt I should use it decorating the table.
