Cool green nightstand! Finally reupholstered dining chairs!

I picked this beauty up at a local thrift store for 4 bucks. It needed a little work since it had been left outside but my hubby hooked me up with that. She is going in Christy's room downstairs so I went with a lovely green color did a little glaze action and here she is in all her glory!

Her final resting place by Christy's bed. I just love how it turned out so vintage and funky!
Now on to the chairs. I found this old set on craigslist and my father in law picked it up for me for fifty bucks. It has two leaves and six chairs that looked like this when I got them.

This was the original fabric

I loved the green and blue velvet but it doesn't match my colors. But here they are looking so good all black and white.

As you can see I still need to repaint them but I need to save some projects for another day right!

3 months!

Yes it has already been three months since my last chemo treatment. Time has flown by. I am so happy with my progress and all I am able to do. I take care of my family and have even started working again. Three months is nothing but my life has changed completely. In Nov. I was in a bad place I had completely lost myself in cancer. I was sick and drained. I debated about sharing this pic with everyone. I took it for myself so I would remember just how bad things really were and so I would never forget to be grateful for my health. But I want to share it with you, no make up no flower no smile just the sickness at it's worst.

Now three months later. I'm cancer free. I feel amazing. I'm happy and fulfilled again. I feel like I have my identity back as a wife and a mother. And I am also proud of who I am. I survived not always pretty as you can tell but I did it. I feel like I was real and honest. I was as strong as I could be. I'm proud three months later and I love who I am. And I love that my eyelashes are back! There worth having to shave my armpits for!
