This project made me so happy...I think because I got to do it with the sun shining and windows up but this fabric was just so nice...the color, the pattern was fun, it was a just all came together!
This is for a teenagers room...wish I had a message board like this back in the day!

I used a thin piece of birch, applied the cork and batting...then it was  zebra time

here it is! I staple gunned it around and called complete! well after I added a French cleat to hang it
Do you want a custom message board? Contact McNamara Design!
Happy almost Fridya People!!!!

Buffing the Buffet

So I rarely do refinishing jobs but one of my besties asked me to help her with a buffet that her grandparents had and she wanted it refinished to match a table her parents had given her. I was up for the job! After months, yes months, of getting all the prep work done(striping, sanding, sanding, and sanding some more) the piece was ready! 

here its is before...

in this pic the top had already received some sanding but you can see the original stain color

below if the table her parents gave her...she wanted the buffet to match to the espresso color

check of the drawers so far! 

and the new pulls are just going to make this piece! I found these on home depots website for under $6! Just love them!!!

Have a great wednesday people! I cant believe its already in the middle of the week! Holla!

Weekend Wrap Up!

This weekend was a fun one! All the girls went to Annapolis to celebrate our dear friend Libby who is getting married in 33 days! We couldn't be more happy for her and her future hubs Patrick. 17 weeks prego I still rocked it and had a blast! 

what a was just SO nice to get out of the city...even though it rained all weekend it was nice to sit around and relax!

Here she is!!! Gearing up! 

this goblet for the bride not only held a ton of booz but flip it over and the bottom side was a shot glass :) 

the best goodie bags filled with a koozie and mallet for crab eating!

We are also finishing up a big refinishing project and staring a huge order for outdoor rattan furniture being used for the Rehobeth Design House Regan and I are doing together! woot woot! let's get it done!
