Why do girls have do many clothes?

So they can fave a fabulous dresser! ;-)  This one does have a defect though, can you spot it? Luckily, the now owner didn't notice it and neither did her hubby...till after I showed then they still hardly saw it. :-)

No time for blogging :/

I really love and appreciate my blogging peeps. Yep, YOU!

I need to keep my priorities right though, and blogging takes a bunch of time (when I do it). :/ However, I am doing a lot more on Facebook! I would love it if you "liked" Davis Domestications. There are a ton of finished projects on there.

I intend on blogging more, but right now, it's just not in the cards. I will be doing a post to catch ya'll up on what's been happening, but it will be simple.

My husband passed his Conductor exam and so I've been wearing a few more "hats" than usual. We're super excited about all the changes in our lives though and can't wait to see what is in store. (personally and dD wise)

God is amazing and faithful and good!

See you in Facebookland!

Trying out an app

I have been busy painting, I just haven't had much time to blog about it. Maybe this app will help. :-)
A hint of what is to come.

It's a Piece.

I bought this piece at an auction, without really seeing it up close.  Actually, I think I seriously just glanced at it. No one was bidding on it, so I threw up my hand.  (A split second after my friend put up her hand. lol.) She let me have it.
When I finally got it home, I got a better look at it. It used to be apart of a piece of furniture...at least it looks like it was. I painted it. (It had been painted a high glossy white. Bleh.) If I had a bigger house, I think it'd be cool above an entry way or fireplace. Even just leaning in a corner or something.  What do you think?


reflections a plenty

I've looked all over my files for a picture of the before...it's around here somewhere.  If I find it, I'll add it to this post. 'Til then, I'll skip to the end result...

Giant coffee table and the broken handle.

I finally got finished with this HUGE 8 drawer coffee table! 
I really liked all the details on it and thought it had so much potential. 
My little girl trying to help out. :)
I've had this for a while now, just sitting there, almost done. Seriously, I only had to do one drawer. Why quit with only one drawer left?!? Sounds pretty silly to me. Well, I broke one of the handles when I bumped it into the door frame coming in the day I bought it. No biggie, I'll just have my awesome hubby weld the part that snapped off back and it'll be good as new. Nope. Whatever metal that handle was, was one that didn't want to be welded. He tried everything he had. Crap. Now what? 
Well, since it was made in England and I couldn't figure out who made it, there was only one thing I could do. Find new handles. Yeah. that. meant. redoing. all. the. other. drawers. 
That meant I had to sand them all down b/c I left the original handles on when I painted. So between that and the wax, I had no choice. 
Eventually I found handles that worked and got her done. 
 See how big she is? she dwarfs my couch! If I had a big house with lots of room and a "regular" couch, she'd rock! I love that you can put so much stuff inside and still have storage space. Remotes in one, cards in another, magazines,  in another, a blanket? in another....you get the picture. ;)



 The colors are a little off in the next two photos. 

 Now she's dinged up in all the "right" places. lol.

Take a Seat!

I was asked to do this bench. I love the history of it. This bench was her grandparent's bench. She loved it, but it didn't go with her house. Check out all those layers of paint! (That did NOT want to be sanded...it took FOREVER!)

 (I really wish my camera wasn't dead. My little camera on my media player isn't the greatest, sorry!)

Here's her Face-Lift.


Julie was sweet enough to send me a pic of her at her new place. Thank you, Julie! ☺
