Updated Dining Room with a $20 Armoire Redo

I have this narrow, small, kind of awkward space in my dining room that has been making me crazy since we moved into this house. For years, I have been waiting for just the perfect inspiration at my many thirft store trips. When I walked into my favorite store and saw this I ran to ... continue reading

Fall Chalkboart Art

Seriously, this huge kitchen chalkboard is hands down my favorite DIY project ever. It was easy and impactful. I love getting to creatre a whole new look and feel in our kitchen and family room by changing the art. This time I really went all out. I even bought grown up chalk that made all ... continue reading

Chalkboard Dresser Redo

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

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

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

Hard Day’s Night

Yes, yes I am still alive! My laptop was OUT OF COMMISSION for like 5 days. So there was no linky party last Friday and no Main Ingredient Monday, but this girl has a new operating system and we are running fast! Did I mention to you all that my husband and I are going ... continue reading

A Lil Table Redo

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

Out of the 70’s

Whoa, baby I loved the 70's, I was born in the 70's, still jam to music of the 70's. But these brown wood sconces were just cryin for a makeover. So I did it! These babies have been around my garage for a while and somehow, they didn't have a "before" photo shoot.  Let me ... 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
