Once upon a time I blogged nearly every single day, was on top of my custom order pieces, had major decorating plans and commented on all my fave blogs. Remember that girl? Well. She totally lost her way this summer and got distracted by life, which has been a bit sad and seriously awesome all rolled into one.
If you've read Number Fifty-Three for any length of time then you know I'm not big on sharing personal info. I have really nothing against it and love blogs that do. The thing that nobody really knew was that for, like years, I have been pretty miserable and sad. And that made it hard to share.
Seriously, how long has it been since I've done a Things I'm Loving This Week post? Like months way too long. That's how long. And I promise an explanation for my weird and sporadic blogging over the last few months. I promise. Like maybe even next week. Because even though I don't share tons of personal stuff here...for real, my life has completely been flipped upside down and is just in a crazy new place that you all should know a little bit more about.
Hey everyone! Forgive my lateness in getting this out this morning. My lovely guys have given me whatever makes-you-want-to-curl-up-in-ball-with-a-box-of-tissues illness they had last week. Love how even though my boys are homeschooled we still go through the usual fall sicknesses every year.
But, I have something super exciting to share with you all today. My good buddy, Cassie from Primitive & Proper has organized this awesome series where we will be updating a room in our home over the next six weeks. How's that for motivation to get something accomplished!
OK guys. I'm going to share with you a super, super tough custom order I recently finished and why it is always important to have a back up plan because sometimes painting furniture can seriously throw you a curveball. (P.S. This is also applicable for everyday life...always have a Plan B. Always.)
