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

Electrical Spool Upcycle

Electrical Spool Upcycle from Too Much Time On My Hands Feature

The office is finished! My husbands, industrial chic office is F-I-N-A-L-L-Y done! He really seems to like it, so much so that he has made himself SUPER comfortable (read-messy) and I can't even get good pics of the final room! Hopefully he (or I) will be able to clean up this weekend so I can ... 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

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

I took full advantage of my ultra clean, organized, and kid free home last week! I took pics of every room, so you will like, you know, feel at home here with me. This room hardly ever gets used, but it is right off of our entry so we look at it a lot. Therefore, ... continue reading

My Dining Room

As I sat here in my very quiet and very clean house waiting for Better Homes and Gardens to arrive a thought popped into my head. My house will never be this organized, clean, and "together" as it is this very second. So, I hopped up and started snapping photos. I would like to introduce ... continue reading

A Lil’ Table and My Porch

I am loving this little table addition to my front porch. It was only $7.99 at my thrift store and now it totally matches our home! I used the gray from my front door to paint the base of this table and added off white accents. I finished it with a satin polyurethane to hopefully ... continue reading

A Trellis From Wood Scraps

First of all, check out the difference a month makes! We have arugula in drawer #2 and lettuce in drawer #3. I loaded the top planter with a trailing plant and a couple of different full and bushy flowers. I can't wait for it to cascade over the sides of the dresser! I also planted ... continue reading

Here’s That Dresser…AGAIN

Last week I shared with you how this good for nothing piece of junk kept falling apart. Now, even though I was at odds with this piece and ready to hack it up, I just have a problem tossing things. I decided to move it into the backyard and see what would happen....well, other than ... continue reading

Rustic Revamp

When I redid my son's bedroom last spring I tried to redo the dresser from his nursery and fit it into our new theme and his new 'big boy" needs. It looked cute for sure, but alas, as he got rougher and rougher with that shoddily constructed piece of junk it started falling apart every ... continue reading
