Meet My Living Room

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

Entry Solutions

Last week I refinished this fab table to help contain the insanity that is my entryway, but there was still the issue of all that mish mash mess under the table. I found this at the thrift store and turned it into this! She is a bit beat up, but she is big and I ... continue reading

Happy Little Dresser

This beauty was $5.95 at my fave Thrift Store. I loved the simplicity of the design and I knew it could look better....couldn't look worse! My friend was in the market for a new dresser in her daughter's bedroom and when she saw this one in my garage she thought it would be perf. At ... continue reading

Hipster Chairs

Check out my retro lookin, 1970's feelin, hipster chairs. Each chair was $2.99 and they looked lovely in the torn blue vinyl they were sportin before I went to town them. I painted them both black and then distressed them a bit. I stenciled both of the back rests. I found some super fun 70's ... continue reading

Rockin New Dresser

This funky little fella was supposed to go to the shop and be sold, but I decided to keep it because I fell in love! "Huh?" you say. Well it didn't still look like that after I got my paint splattered hands on it! I found this photo on Pinterest from Julia at 551 Designs ... continue reading
