Courtenay from Creek Line House posted last week about how she was going to share an unfinished project but her hubby messed it up because he went and finished it before she could post about how long it was taking to finish it. I thought it was hysterical and had joked to Courtney that she should see all of my unfinished projects. She responded and said she actually would love it. So here are just a few and I do mean a few of my unfinished works in progress.
Last September I shared my completed french armoire for the guest bedroom. I mentioned how I was planning on making panels for inside the doors. Well I got as far as putting the hardware up and those panels are still sitting patiently up in my sewing room.
This mirror I purchased back in the spring to make a faux tremeau mirror. It sits here in the dining room again patiently waiting.

Lets move out to the garage now shall we. I warn you the following pictures are not for the faint at heart!;)
Here is the farmhouse coffee table that believe it or not I had 95% completed but instead of sticking with what I know best which is poly I deiced to use a spray on protective top coat. BIG HUGE mistake. It left bubbles every where and now I am having heck of a time trying to get it all off. I am refusing to use stripper.
Speaking of stripping I have yet to finish stripping the red headboard for the guest bedroom. This project has literally gone on for 10 months now. Thankfully though I have finally found a stripper I just love so once it cools off this piece will be beautiful again. Note yet another mirror waiting patiently to be made over.
Then there is this corner of the garage which you can not even get to unless you open the garage door. Who knows what all is over there!? No, really I CAN tell you everything that is over there and once we gut the garage and organize it I will be busy busy busy! Right now I just do not have any work space which is why it is taking me so long to tackle things.

Did you notice the one thing our garage is lacking minus organization? A car!:) It drives my hubby insane but he loves me!:)

So there ya have it. The ugly at my house and shhhh, there are even a few more projects I didn't share!;)

No worries, my dining room and foyer I shared the other day now actually look like they should so I do actually accomplish a few things!:)

Hope your week has been a good one. Before I go reminder that today is the last day to enter to win the petite frenchy wall clock I am giving away in honor of the grand opening of my web shop so head over and enter if you have not already. Tomorrow I will be announcing the winner!:)


  1. Looks like you have no wants for something to do! Happy projecting!

  2. You are not alone, Pamela! Although, I think you've got more stuff that I do, but only because I have no space here. : ) I am so tired of looking at my own half completed projects. Fabric ~ the sunroom valances. I've got three more to make {for the seven windows}; the other half of a fleece throw; my sewing/craft room I can barely move in. I've got a frame awaiting ASCP clear wax and then to become a fabric magnetic board, fabric I just bought, and a few other projects just waiting sealer. I seriously need to pick a day to get them finished, because I'm sure they could all be finished in one day. I feel so pathetic sometimes!

  3. How did you get pictures of my garage on your blog?? I love this post... my garage looks identical and is in need of a major organization effort. I just can't find the time to get to it. :)

  4. Oh I can so relate!!! Most of the time I'm stuck behind the computer! Balance!!!

  5. You're hilarious! I was just scrolling down and opening up posts and then I was like "Waaaait a second, that's my name!" Love that you took my dare and did this post. We're all in this big DIY mess together! :)

  6. Ah, yes- We bloggers are all sooo much alike- well, at least some of us are- semi-hoarders with projects waiting to be finished. I am slowly pegging away at my pile. Wanta race to see who is done before the snow flies?;>) xo Diana

  7. don't worry, you're not alone. I have MANY unfinished projects too!

  8. Confession is good for the soul. Just think of how happy you'll be when you cross those partially finished projects off the list all in one swoop when you start on them again! It's so fun to have things already started because they all finish faster! Chin up! You can do it!

  9. I am glad I am not the only one that can 't get a car in the garage. I too am waiting for the cold weather. Hang in there pamela.

  10. How come the mess in your garage looks so neat and orderly? Well you'd believe that if you saw my garage.
