~merry christmas~

I hope everyone has had a Wonderful Christmas....
My family and I sure have enjoyed our time together.  Jeff took the week off  work and it was really nice to have him home.  We also gained a TEENAGER in the house this week!  Our oldest son, Jackson, turned 13 on Dec. 20th. 
It was so nice spending time with family and watching the kiddos enjoy a fantastic Christmas.
Although, we have also had a lot of heartbreak as well :(
We lost our sweet baby to a miscarriage.  I delivered our precious little guy on Monday Dec.19, 2011. 
He was so little but so perfect...
We named him Sawyer Robert Francom. 
He was named Robert after my dad who had a birthday on that same day.
We are so grateful for the time we had to hold him and love him...
The hospital also provided us with some wonderful memories to have such as pictures, a mold of Sawyer's hand, hand and foot prints and a blanket.  They were so good to us.
 We were able to bury him too which was so important to me.
Although, more than anything, I am thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Plan of Salvation and for the knowledge we have of Eternal Families.  It is so comforting to know that we will be with our sweet little Sawyer again.
We love you our sweet angel...

Happy New Year to you all!

~thank you~

Thank you, Thank you
to everyone who has left me such nice comments on this blog! 
I am so sorry it seems as if I am not responding BUT, for some reason, that I can't figure out,
I can't even comment on my own blog!!!!  It is so frustrating!
So Thank You!

*****P.S.  Lara, What a neat piece you found...
I would definitely paint it. I just love how paint can transform a piece. 
Best of luck to you!

~plasma tv console #2~

This will be the 2nd one I have done in the last week!
This console is for my friend Christine.  She found it on KSL, here in Utah.
It has a few issues I will need to fix such as a WARPED door :(
The plan is to just build 2 new ones...
I will also be adding beadboard and new hardware.
I plan on having it finished this week.

~exciting news~

I have some very exciting news to share....
We are expecting our 5th baby here at the Francom household!!!
Everyone is very excited, I'd say I'm a LOT overwhelmed but, it will be great :)
At least I will have a lot of help.  My kids' ages are from almost 13 - 3 years old so it shouldn't  be too hard.
I still plan on working as much as possible before the little one arrives...so,wish me luck!
Have a great weekend!

~finished plasma tv console~

I think this is now my NEW favorite piece :)
I wish the picture quality was better...these were taken right at dusk and again I have NO photography skills :(
I found this on KSL and my neighbors just so happened to be looking for something to
house all their tv components so, it was a win win!

It was painted Antique White (Four Chairs), distressed and polyurethaned.
Once again I stripped the top and stained it with several coats of walnut stain.
Beadboard was added to the doors as well as new hardware from Hobby Lobby.


Thanks again Michelle and Josh !
