I am truly BLESSED! I found some great stuff and met some wonderful people. I have learned that it behooves us to be nice to everyone, regardless of how you may "perceive" them to be. God can bless you through people you wouldn't even imagine. And although I am not doing "community work" for my 8-5pm, I will never stop helping people! I remember when I worked in an office as a receptionist but I also cleaned the office and the bathrooms. I will always appreciate where God brought me fromπŸ˜‰ SN: I am super duper excited to redo these barrell chairs and that table with those spindle legs!! I'm thinking a sophisticated Grey Velvet fabric would be just lovely! I love the Maple table too. #peopleareprecious #peopleareimportant #furniturelove #70sfurniture #scandanaviandesign #maplefurniture #hgtvmagazine #hgtv #furnitureideas

I am really working on learning to rest. To just sit and be still. I see why the Bible said God created the 7th day to rest. It's vital to our spiritual, emotional and physical health. I know I need itπŸ˜‰ Fall is a beautiful time here in Michigan. #sunday #churchgirl #jesuschick #midwestchick #michigan

Satur-yay!!! 1st day of Fall calls for @thesaltedcupcake and I actually wore my leopard shirt with jeans😁 I am not a huge animal print lover but I've fallen in love with Leopard print with dark lipstick by @blackradiancebeauty πŸ˜‰ It's our tradition to eat Fried Rice almost every Saturday mine is with Shrimp. HINT: When I really enjoy something I dance while I eat! True foodie ova here!πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I painted this. @ikeausa shoe cabinet that was expresso this gorgeous Dark Teal to sell but now I'm in 😍😍😍 Got this idea from one of @theblackrebecca customers. I LOVE her IG page for Furniture and craft events (not drinks tho lol). #ikeahackers #grandrapidsfoodie #foodiegram #blackfoodie #saturdayfun #furnituredesigner #furniturelove #furnituretransformation #cupcakelove #bestcustomers #fashionisfun #ilovefashion #iloveclothes #leopardprint #naturalhairqueen #afrobun

Funny I NEVER imagined myself as a Leasing Agent although I don't know why not. I enjoy homes, decor and working with people. I probably get too excited but I can't help it. I love architecture and interior design. One thing I loved about President Obama is how he treated people. From dignitaries to everyday working people, they all deserve to be treated with dignity, respect and value. 🌸 #newofficespace #officefurniture #peopleareimportant #peopleareprecious #leasingagent #naturalista #naturalhairrocks

Downtown GR! My friend/coworker and I ate a Sushi Restaurant tonight. It was delicious!!! The Edamame hummus with blue chips and dumplings were the BOMB! Excited to try more local eats 😁 The ArtPrize 2018 started today. It's very cool to see the variety of artwork there. And of course, I'm always trying to keep the weight in check. LOL. #downtowngr #downtownliving #andorestaurant #sushi #grandrapidsfoodie #grandrapidsmichigan #midwestchick #artprize #over45andfit #over45 #brownbeauties

Ok I admit I am procrastinating!! I am supposed to be finishing the office loveseat and the couch. πŸ˜” Among painting a few more things. LOL. My body is TIRED and a lil stiff from moving around pieces by myself when Bart was at work. Anyway here is a 1of 2 chairs. This fabric is so striking to me! I believe these are called barrel cane chairs. #thriftedfurniture #chairmakeover #chairs #hgtvmagazine #hgtv #robertkaufmanfabrics #goodwillgr

Well today I started a new job as a Leasing Agent! I will definitely miss my previous coworkers and the residents but change can be good. 🍁 Of course this combines my love of people and interior design! First time seeing a Murphy Bed in person! Tpo cute! I normally don't travel to the west side of GR much but it seems great. And my new team is cool! Can't beat thatπŸ˜‰ #newjob #leasingagent #iloveinteriordesign #downtownliving #sunlight #apartmentliving #smallspaceliving

My little guy and I headed to church this morning. Grateful to be able to go give God praise and get practical teaching for my life everyday! God is my everything! Missing my Barty tho. πŸ’œ #churchgirl #sundaypraise #grandrapidsfirst #naturalchic #naturalhairrocks #mochamoms #mochakids

I've been working really hard to get alot done in preparation for another huge furniture sale this weekend! Learning to manage my time better and work smarter not harder πŸ˜‰ I will have 4 Dining sets, a desk and a couple of office chairs for that special #girlboss, 2 Steelcase Office Loveseats, occasional chairs, headboards, end tables and so much more. Maybe a couple of couches if I finish in timeπŸŽ‰ #ballinonabudget #smallspaceliving #gvsu #davenportuniversity #msu #budgetista #chicliving #rusteoleum #creativesoulphoto #ilovetopaintfurniture #thriftedfinds #salvationarmy #goodwillgr #garagesale #hgtvmagazine #hgtvfixerupper #hgtv #diychick

Tonight I made my version of a "Philly Steak Sub"! We all enjoyed it! Well of course not Bryce LOL. He's not really a meat eater which is fine with me. ✳ He made this lovely shelter for his friend, Mollie's guinea pigs. Lol. It had 2 stories, a patio and a pet store. An architect in the maling! Amazing what cardboard and duct tape can createπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Kids imaginations are so cool! Love when he can step away from MINECRAFT ✳ Since the holidays are soon approaching, I found this goat cheese ball on Pinterest. Lord knows I enjoy cheese in any formπŸ˜‹ ✳ Here's another peek at a dining set I'm doing. I fell in love with this fabric! Can't wait to see the end result. Theses black & white fabrics by @nateberkus caught my eye as well. Time to sew some fall pillows! It's refreshing to see kids be kids. This wagon has been around for a long time. Glad to see it still being used. πŸ˜€ #childhoodisshort #childhoodmemories #family #foodiegram #foodies #cookingathome #cheapeats #ilovetocook #entertainingideas #cheese #chefwannabe #imagination #kidsimagination #fabric #fieldsfabrics #furnituredesigner #furnituretransformation

Having a great morning! I've been in a FB group message with my elementary school friends! It's so good that we all feel the same way about growing up with each other. We went to a Catholic school but we had diverse backgrounds and ethnicities that helped us embrace differences at an early age. I am so thankful to God that we share wonderful memories growing up. SN: I still can't believe that we are 47πŸ˜¦πŸ˜‚ #goodmemories #standrews #grandrapidsmichigan #embraceculturaldiversity #catholicschool #gradeschoolfriends #growingupinthe70s

I miss my living room! Bart will tell you, I am not meticulous like him BUT...I do like neat and airy! I cannot think clearly with clutter. So it's time to bust my butt and get these chairs out of here! Plus I'm going to take the rest of this week off to finish all my furniture; especially since the weather will be nice. Here in Michigan we always have a cool down (false start to fall), then it'll get hot again then cold. LOL. I enjoy fall here when the leaves turn beautiful colors and we break out the cute sweaters, jeans and boots. But I can't tolerate what comes next...SNOW! :( SN: the coffee table was my FIRST project! It was bright red and I bought it from a garage sale for $5! I've been hooked ever since! #livingroom #beautifulfurniture #eclecticdecor #eclectichome #cozyhome #midwest #midwestchick

I know I should be asleep but since I have the week off, I'm still relaxing! I always find inspiration from some of my favorite IG pages. Of course, I love nice, big homes but something about small space living just blesses my heart πŸ’— #smallhouse #smallspacedesign #smallspaceliving #organization #cozyspace #simpleglam

I have enjoyed fashion since I was a child. I was a girly tomboy🌸 Dolls and dirt were my thing Ha! These lovely ladies have great online stores. I love classic fashion with modest, modern but trendy twists. #fashionisfun #fashionista #onlinestore #girlboss #girlygirl #sisterhood #sisterhoodrocks #brownbeauties

Happy Sunday!!! I love that God created this day for rest. I decided to do just that. It's always difficult for me to just relax. I'm working on it though. πŸ˜€ So cute watching my Mom whoop Bryce in Uno! I taught him well tho. We played and he beat me 3 times! And I don't throw games for kids πŸ’―πŸ˜‚ The fro has been let put since I've been off work! And I don't know if that's grey hair or paint! HA! I think this dining area is so pretty and I love this family space! I would love to recreate these rooms using thrifted pieces😍 #sunday #rest #grandparents #grandson #gamenight #diningroom #copycat #afropuff #afrolove #afrochic #afrogoals

Tonight I made Skinny Chicken Alfredo using Cauliflower for sauce. OMG!!! who knew it would be sooo good! I'm not a huge pasta and I forgot to put mine over some Zuchinni. πŸ˜” oh well still good! Always excited to get great reviews from customers who purchase pieces from me. I am grateful because there are so many talented people out here that they didn't have to choose me πŸ’— Ms Froaty has created a monster LOL. #beforeandafterfurniture #greysofa #graysofa #ilovetocook #lowcarbeating #pinterestaddict #pinterestinspired #rusteoleum #foodflatlay #foodiegram #blackfoodie

Ohhh this is gonna be nice!!! I'm debating what color to do the feet, black or taupe? Sorry I don't know how to do survey thing! Lol I also found a new color @rustoleum called Nantucket Blue. Makes this bookshelf look kinda cute.😍 One of those old school shelves fold down thing. Ha! And these barstools turned out really pretty too. I used @joannagaines @magnolia fabrics for seats. #girlboss #homesweethome #signaturestyle #hgtvmagazine #hgtvfixerupper #urbanchic #furnituredesigner #furniturelove #paintedfurniture #modernhouse #modernstyles #goodwillgr #salvationarmymi #diyfurnituremakeover
