Bench Makeover & Happy Thanksgiving

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful short week! It’s been a busy one at our house, but busy is good!

I started adding some Christmas touches to the house. Trying to get decorated early so we can sit back and enjoy it! It seems like we have our Christmas decor out for such a short time. And so many of my favorite things are holiday/winter prims!

I also found time for a makeover. A bigger makeover this time. This is a bench that sort of has a funny story that goes along with it. A few years ago (before I was doing makeovers) we gave this bench away to our neighbor.

Well…then I started doing makeovers and everyday I would see it sitting in his garage collecting cobwebs, needless to say…he never used it. Soooo I had my hubby ask for it back! Our neighbor was SO nice about it and didn’t mind one bit.

Here it is before~

I am SO glad I got it back! :)

That’s about it for today. LOTS to do before tomorrow! I want to wish you all a safe, blessed Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for. Good family, good friends and so many other things. Take time out to reflect on all of the wonderful and good things in your life. Enjoy your holiday with the ones you love.

Blogging has given me many great gifts. I have made so many new friends. All of your comments and visits mean the world to me. Thank you.
