Chalkboard Dresser Redo

Chalk paint and chalkboard dresser redo feature

This little beauty was adrift in the depths of a local thrift store. It was only $9.99! I adore the curves, but I was a bit scared of that terrible shipping tape someone had used to hold the drawers in. Well, that tape was the toughest part of this whole redo! I went to town ... continue reading

Rad Mustard Yellow Dresser

Dresser Redo from Too Much Time On My Hands feature

It started with this end table I did a few months back... It moved into my guest room and then I ended up having to change everything! I painted the walls, created a chalk art sign, a pallet sign, and then redid this dresser to match! I used the same yellow as the end table ... continue reading

Houndstooth Vanity Chair From Too Much Time On My Hands Feature Image

I know someone's going to be angry about this one! Yes, the wood was still in good shape, and yes I know I have probably ruined some priceless antique, but in my defense, I just couldn't help myself. It was marked as $19.99, but it was half off yellow tags and my lucky day! I ... continue reading

A Lil Table Redo

Too Much Time On My Hands -Table Makeover Feature

I snagged this little wooden end table from Goodwill for $2.95. It was a bit dinged up, but solid and sturdy, so I figured I could fancy it up  for my son's bedroom. Since he isn't being rocked much anymore (well he IS almost 4!) we decided to ditch the rocker for  a table for ... continue reading

Featuring: The Dish Towel Collection


These pieces totally remind me of dish towels...nice ones...that I like... I snagged this plain little recipe card holder and shelf at Goodwill and was completely inspired by the dishtowels! Do they remind you of the dishtowels too? A little chalk paint and a little of the rough stuff. The recipe card holder, just HAD ... continue reading

Little White Organizer

This little cutie started off as a plain old maple organizer. I painted it with my trusty homemade white chalk paint. I used a clear and dark wax (Annie Sloan)  finish. Then, the poor thing just sat, sat, sat around. Until one of my Pick Your Plum orders arrived in the mail! That wide burlap ... continue reading
