Where have I been? What have I been up to?

This kitchen used to have blue Formica and honey oak cabinets. It's a little more updated now, wouldn't you say ?

There is so much to catch you up on, I hardly know where to start. We have been getting more and more kitchen remodels. They are keeping us very busy.

Can you say dreamy? I think a copper farmhouse sink IS just dreamy.
We just finished this kitchen and have already started another one. The next one will have and old sink with builtin drainboards. The sink is at the refinisher's shop right now. I'll post pics of it tomorrow.

THEN.......there is my latest obsession. Vintage travel trailers!! I have wanted one for a very long time, but have not been able to afford a good one. I wanted to fix one up, but not have to totally gut it and start over, UGH!
Well, I found her!

These pics are not of her.
Just nice shots of the interiors of a vintage trailers that give us inspiration. We want to go for the cottage look, of course.

This is her!
My daughter has already named her..."Primrose" She needs a lot of TLC, but is in very good condition considering her age. Everything inside is all original and still works. Everybody needs a makeover after 40. Don't you think? The current owners are using her for a storage shed right now, so she needs a lot of clean up. My daughter and I already have such plans for her.

So that is what I have been up to! Catch up with you later. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

My "Day" job........

This is a before of a sauna tub we installed.

I have always used this blog to write about my biggest passion, "Shabby" things. But today I am letting you in on my other passion....changing things out to improve and update interiors. My husband and I have a remodeling business. We mainly do kitchens and baths, but we take on exterior projects too. I just love doing patios and sun rooms.

This is the "after" we did our thing.

This is a concrete overlay that I do. Looks great! This one went right over Formica!

Another "before" shot of a little bathroom remodel. Remember pink Formica, ugh!

And the "after".

We also added a frame to the old mirror. What a difference.

RED Formica and Honey Oak.
Help, I need a makeover!

What a difference! I not only madeover the counter, we also painted and glazed the cabinets. Really brought them up to date, don't you think? I also did a faux treatment on the walls. I love the grey the client chose.

Well this is my "day" job. The name of our company is "Just Faux You". Yeah, don't laugh, I thought of that all by myself.

New Chapter continues......

We started moving things into the booth at Sisters today. I have a lot a styling to do and a lot more small things to get in there.

Hubby helped me with all the heavy stuff. On what became, the hottest day of the year. We broke records for heat!! UGH!

The cutest little vintage rocker I bought, get this, at a garage sale, without ever leaving my house!! My good friend was having a sale and texted me some pics of goodies. Well that was all she needed to do. SOLD! I went and picked it up at her house a few days later. Put on a layer of pink, then glazed it for age and here she is.

I will also be caring some really cool, funky jewelry. You can never have too much funky bling. Thanks for stopping by. Hope y'all have a great week.

A new chapter in our life

My husband and I have decided to start a new chapter of our life. We will become, yet another vendor, in a mall. We are going to be carrying a variety of things, mostly funky junkie decor, including vintage finds and homemade things. We will also have repurposed finds and altered things as well as some really cool jewelry. We are going to be in a new mall......

You know how they say that God puts certain people in your life when you need them. God has been working exponentially in my life lately. First off, my sister and I decide to start building our business up, The Shabby Jammie Sisters. Then I find out about this new mall "Sisters" ! Then when I go meet the lady, she has the same last name as I do! I have already met some other terrific ladies that will be in there. This is going to be a really good thing. They are having a grand opening, June 11th. One of our local weather men, James Brown, is going to be catering the event with the best dang crawfish in these parts. Fun will be had by all. Really looking forward to your input. Haven't been getting too much lately, so lets here ya. Have a blessed day :)
