It’s a rain day here in BEAUTIFUL Burlington. I’ve been working on my website and taking photo’s of furniture I’ve recently painted and re-finished.
FYI ~ Did you know Burlington ON was voted the 3rd best city to live in in ALL of Canada!
I’m so lucky to live here. The QEW, 403, 407, GO and VIA all intersect Burlington and I’m super close to Toronto, Niagara and the USA Border. I’m surrounded by Burlington’s Waterfront (Lake Ontario), acres of parkland, the escarpment, festivals galore, arts and culture, and fabulous shopping and restaurants. And yes, the restaurants are very important because cooking is NOT my fav thing to do! I’m like Carrie on Sex in the City…did you see that episode where she attempted to bake a pie?
Speaking of actors, I don’t usually name drop but Burlington’s also been home to the rich and famous. Jim Carrey, Robert Bateman and… wait for this one ladies … Ryan Gosling to name a few.
Another great thing about my city… Burlington and the surrounding area has designated “bulk” days.
Bulk Days are when we can put out large items such as dressers, armoires, dining tables etc. and the city picks them up on a designated day.
This is really convenient if you want to get rid of something, fun and exciting if you want to “acquire” something! I have found so many great curbside finds. When you find a sad old piece bound for the landfill and turn it into something fabulous …well, it’s a really good feeling.
Here’s my latest. A road rescued coffee table make-over. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. And if you’re ever in this great city, feel free to look me up and I’ll show you around … dinners on you! 😉
Enjoy your day and thanks for reading!
