EASY Tween DIY Desk and Office Renovation

My daughter has been begging for a desk forever. We had a minimal budget and it was a small space so it took a while to find just the right thing at a thrift store. There is no way this plain brown desk was going to work in Holden's sparkly and pink bedroom. We go ... continue reading

The Dresser That Almost Wasn’t….

Oh this dresser.... I had such big dreams and thought it would be such an easy easy redo. Well, I am here to tell you IT WAS NOT. AND it is still not perfect, but I just give up! My dreams were to take off the doors and have the drawers displayed and add baskets ... continue reading

What Should I Do With This Dresser?

I haven't done a furniture project in a LONG time and I have been itching for a good one. My husband's bedroom dresser has not been working well for him.

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
