Are you tired of Before and Afters yet??

So, the china cabinet has been finished for about a week now, I just haven't gotten around to taking a picture. Life has been crazy around here lately....what's new right!?

 My poor hubby came down with an awful toothache on Tuesday and by Wednesday couldn't eat or talk he was in so much pain. He finally got in with his dentist on Thursday morning and found out he needs a root canal.......the kicker though? They couldn't do it until Monday morning. So he's all hopped up on Vicodin and Percocet until then. On top of that I failed the one hour glucose test (routine test for pregnant women usually done around 28 weeks to check for gestational diabetes.) and now have to go do the three hour test (with fasting for 12 hours prior) after his dental work on Monday. Ugh, what a way to start the week!

Anyway back to the china cabinet refresh your memory, here's the before.

And the afters..............

I also gave my clam shell a little makeover and painted the inside with gold acrylic paint (after I saw this post from Christine.) And yes, those are flowers are fake and I don't care so get over it. ; )

You can kind of see the new living room set up, this is the wall where the sideboard and TV were before. I'm working on some finishing touches, including reupholstering our behemouth ottoman before I show you the rest of the room. Soon.....hopefully.

Happy weekend people-think fondly of me while you're drinking your coffee and eating some delicious pastry on Monday morning!

Holy moly girl, that looks amazing! But I'm worried for you and the hubs. That sounds lame :( Hope he feels better and that you pass your test!

Thanks Erin! It is VERY lame, that test sucked and now my arms look like a junkies. (Four blood draws, one of which she had to do twice to find the vein.) Stanley's root canal went really fast and he feels so much better now. I'm sure my test will be fine, the morning I went in for the one hour test I made cinnamon rolls for breakfast. What the hell was I thinking loading up on sugar before a glucose test?!! So just FYI no donuts before you have to do yours! ;)
