Unfinished Projects....

Remember this plate from a few posts back?

Well it is now part of ANOTHER project that I have going on in my home and not finished yet. This buffet is in my dining room. I had painted the sides and front black last year when I redecorated my dining room. I had planned on covering the top in mosaics, because it has seen better days. I am finally getting around to it.

Remember this silverware chest? STILL NOT FINISHED! I am waiting to go to Michael's to pick up something I need to finish it.

Sometimes, I just whip through projects. Other times it seems to take forever!

Do you have any projects going on around the house?

Welcome Home,



  1. Ohhh, your buffet is going to look so wonderful! Can't wait to see the finished projects.


  2. Penny,
    I can't wait to see the finished projects...all your work is so lovely!!!

    Good luck and have a wonderful day!!!

  3. Your buffet will looks so pretty when you are done with it. I can't wait to see it!

  4. You betcha I have unfinished projects. My mudroom has been an ongoing project for whats seems like forever and I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! I'll post it soon....I hope! Love your buffet Penny!

  5. I know what you mean about unfinished projects! I know your buffet and that box is going to look great!

  6. Hi Penny,

    Why yes of course we have a few unfinished projects. But that has been remedied we called an electrician! and he will be coming out in the next few weeks to finish installing lights and running ceiling electricity to the tea room.
    I can't wait to see your buffet!.
    Enjoy your day,

  7. We are working on the studio again, I have posted the new progress on my blog @ http://newlifewy.blogspot.com/
    the floors are going down.

    We have so many unfinished projects, we will be busy for some time.

    I look forward to seeing you buffet come to life.

  8. UFO (unfinished objects) are bountiful in my house…


  9. I've got plenty of projects I haven't even gotten started sitting here staring at me! I love your stamina, Penny!

  10. I can't wait to see your finished projects! I have a ton-it's really bad when you forget about something you started and then discover it years later. That is what happens when you move!

  11. Looking forward to seeing your projects, Penny even if it's a year! ;-)


    Sheila :-)

  12. I've done some projects but still have a LONG list of others I'd like to do. Can't wait to see what you do with your buffet! I'm sure it will be beautiful!

  13. I always have more than one unfinished project...I thought that was normal! lol!
    Looking forward to seeing your finished projects!
    Love your music selections!

  14. Penny, I can't wait to see what you do! Your talent is amazing! The chest is looking so beautiful with it's new RED color!!! Nancy

  15. Projects....I've had four window blinds hiding under the bed since November. Two weeks ago, I finally go around to hanging them. Can't wait to see the transformation of your new projects, Penny.

  16. Hi Penny! I know you're about to create some magic! I can't wait to see!
    Can I ask you a question? What color is the red you've used on the chest and your big hutch? I just love it!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  17. Penny, I can just imagine how wonderful these pieces will look once they are completed! I can't wait!!! lol!
    Okay, I've got 2 end tables, one coffee table, one oak cubby cabinet and my cherished corner cabinet that all stand "uncompleted or waiting". I've just decided that my cornder cabinet and my oak cabinet will be painted a colonial red w/an heirloom white "back" and the tables will be painted heirloom white. I've started and painted the drawers and put on a new pull. I wanted to "live with it" for a bit to be sure it's what I wanted before I committed and did the whole thing. So far I have to say I'm loving the "light".
    Enjoy your day! Hugs!

  18. Penny,
    I can only imagine what you are up to, something gorgeous and I can hardly wait. Your home is beautiful. I was in Home Goods yesterday having my weekly therapy and I spotted roosters and smiled thinking of lovely Penny.

  19. Good morning Penny, I have been slow to comment these last several days as my cousin Marilyn is here and she is keeping me busy. I realize my excuses are always company but we do have a steady stream of it don't we? I enjoy it and it keeps me on my toes cleaning house. Therapy three times a week doesn't help. I showed Marilyn your beautiful things on your slide show. She saw the rooster tray and loved it. She told me where it should go in my house and it is exactly where I planned to put it.

    Your table is gorgeous Penny and it will be interesting to see the silverware drawer finished. Your buffet is a big project and I know it will be wonderful.

    I too am very excited about Sat. I hope the late freeze did not slow down the flowers too much. See you at the Bistro at 11:30 am.


  20. How sweet Penny! Isn't is wonderful how certain songs bring back sweet little memories!
    Oh, thank you for sharing the paint color with me. I'd like to do a little paining project!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  21. I'm exhausted just thinking about unfinished projects going on around here!

    Can't wait to see your finished ones, especially that red silverware case.

  22. We're working on the back yard. It's really starting to look nice. I'm giving my Mom a surprise birthday bar-b-que so I want it looking special.

    Inside? Not so much. I have a bedroom I need to strip of wallpaper and then have textured and painted. It's nothing I think I could do. I have been doing little projects. I started making a list of them - little nagging things that I kept putting off. Checking them off a list really helps.

    Happy Days!

  23. Hi Penny,

    Can't wait to see you work your special magic. Your home is lovely and I am sure your projects will only add to the beauty.

    Have a wonderful creative week.

  24. Looking forward to seeing your projects completed! You are SO talented!

  25. The good think is that you have ongoing projects. I am stuck in a bit of a rut, but I'm staying hopeful.

    Jeanne is so excited about meeting you. I'll be with you in spirit.

  26. You are so talented and a perfectionist! Love your art! And I wish you were here to go shopping with! My hubby won't go to thrift stores so I'm on my own to find them! lol

  27. Hi Penny,
    Yes I am the same sometimes it takes me forever to finish a job, I love the buffet that you are working on, can't wait to see it finished.
    Cheers Linda

  28. Oh, Penny...so sorry about the wrong address for Valarie..please try it again. I kept putting it in and it didn;t go to the right place..finally, i copied and pasted the address and, walla....
    So sorry.

  29. Oh Penny, did I see chunks of rooster dishes? I cannot wait to see it when you finish! I just know I am going to be drooling over here :)


  30. Penny - whatever projects you do work on always end up beautiful!

  31. Hooray, I meet Penny today and the bonus is getting my rooster tray. Hi Penny, see you soon!!!

    Love ya, Jeanne
