Week-End Finds

Remember what my family room looked like.  Well, here it is today.  I'm in the midst of a million projects.  Mostly, for my sisters apartment.  We've been going over ideas, purchasing furniture and fabric, and hadn't really done much with it.  So, I started painting and working this weekend. 
Here's a sunburst/sculpture that I'm working on...or trying to figure out what I want to do with it.  Hopefully, I can get this finished up this week.
I posted about this table that I found on the side of the road a couple of months ago.  I had given it a coat of white primer and kind of forgot about it. 
A couple of weeks ago, while out thrifting for my sisters apartment, I found a marble top.  I bought it without measuring.  At $10.00, I figured, I'd find something to do with it, if it didn't work.  I spray painted the base yellow. The top is not attached to the base, but I wanted you all to get a look at it. 
I found this ugly tile looking thing at Goodwill on Friday.  I already gave it a coat of turquoise spray paint (you can see it in the first picture).  I'm still figuring out what else to do with it.
This mirror was $1.49 at the Salvation Army.  I'm thinking for my sister's gallery wall.  Those plastic sunflowers will be the first things removed. 
Do you find yourself knee deep in a bunch of projects?

I always find myself knee deep in projects... hlaf of them sit there because I get bored with it or my brain goes in a different direction and I forget what I was doing ;-)

I feel you. I am head over heels in projects. Last night I told my husband that I didn't know if our house would ever be the same. I feel like I have just enough time to finish one, clean up to photograph it and move to the next one :).
