Tired of Ho-Humming Along!

Well, it’s been a pretty busy last few weeks over here at sZinteriors. For quite a while now I’ve been scouring the USED ads, thrifting my little heart out and just plain visioning in search of makeover pieces for my project ‘to do’!

Here’s a little heads up on what’s got my attention:

Floor Plan - Labelled Layout

Yah, I’ve had enough ho-humming along. Time to move out the pieces that aren’t working, and move in ones that will. This layout is what I have in mind. You can see from the floor plan, we don’t have a lot of options for furniture placement, but that’s okay. We don’t own this home, so will do with this space what we can do!

Here’s one piece that’s just come along…

Glass Door Cabinet - Used VictoriaAnd a look at it right-side up!

Solid Oak Glass Door Cabinet

It’s solid oak with old brass hardware. You can’t really see in this photo, but the bottom of the legs are wrapped in brass – dipping with the real thing!

I have plans for this piece. Oh yes I do! So today I swapped my vehicle to the good outdoors, and set up my workshop in its place to get started.

There will definitely be more to come, but I have to get on with the grunt work first. That would be sanding. I so don’t enjoy the sanding part!

What are your plans for the weekend? Doing anything fun?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Sounds like a great piece, Sheila! I’ve decided to have a yard sale this spring and get rid of a bunch of stuff that’s been weighing me down – I don’t have room for anything new if I don’t clear some out ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great weekend, Sheila!

  2. Looks great Sheila. I am doing the same thing with my living room. Waiting till my 2 sons get an apartment (hopefully by May) so I can pass on to them all my dated and no longer loved furniture and start fresh. I have my floor plan and I’m ready to go!

  3. OOOH I love that cabinet. It’s a great piece! Working on your own place is such a treat, you can take your time, buy what you want…so much fun! The planning, dreaming and doing are all my favourite parts. Have fun with it! Looking forward to the big reveal
