Ya'll Come On In!!

Hi everybody!! Well we are getting back to our normal routines here after luckily missing another hurricane. We have been very lucky here in S. FL. and my heart and prayers go out to the places that were not spared from these terrible storms but I can tell you I am breathing a sigh of relief!! This one scared me. Anyways I finally got a picture of my shelf that Jeff put up for me in my garage, this is where most people enter my house, unfortunately. The bench that I put here I had Jeff make for me a few years ago, from a bed, I sprayed it with a color by Rustoleum called Sweet Pea and then recovered the seat cushion. I'm not completely done,I still have some touch ups to do but I think it's looking better.

So glad to hear that y'all are safe and sound! I just love your garage entry. We use our garage entry much more than our front one too.
Hugs,

Boy I have missed you girl, so glad you dodged another hurricane. I don't think I want to live in Florida...

Your garage entry looks amazing. I have used that Sweet Pea color before.

I was beginning to get worried about you. You just can't keep your fans hanging on the edge for so long! lol I was going to come track you down and make sure you were ok.
Your entry looks so pretty. I love the bed bench!
I actually thought that maybe a magazine had you sworn to silence after all of the absolutely beautiful posting you have shared with us.
Glad your back

I love your new shelf and the bench and am so glad the hurricane missed you all. I wish our garage looked like that. Ours is a really scary place with only a path thru it because of projects past and present. Someday......
Have a wonderful day.

I love what you did with your entry way. The little bench is adorable and I love the color!! I am so glad the hurricane didn't hit you...my husband & I keep holding our breath that Navarre Beach doesn't get hit again & destroy the condos. Mother nature really has a mind of her own!! I enjoyed reading the facts about yourself!! hugs, Sherry
