Pottery Barn-Inspired Coffee Table

PB-Inspired-Coffee-Table-Before

What time is it? It's time for lunch! If you have a preschooler, then you know why that was my automatic response! (Bubble Guppies) Those songs have a way of sticking in your head for hours. Actually it's time for Themed Furniture Thursday!! That's where I and a bunch of my favorite bloggers each make over a piece of furniture, but the catch is, there's a theme! Because everything is more fun when there's a theme, right? This theme was actually a tough one for me...we had to make over a piece … [Read more...]

Updating a Wall with FrogTape & a Contest!

Striped accent wall using Frog Tape

Have any of ya'll ever used FrogTape®? It's no secret that it's my go-to tape for painting projects. I mention it all the time. I usually use it on furniture projects but was recently challenged by FrogTape® to update a wall with it. My Mom volunteered her walls for me to play with. Wasn't that so kind of her? ;) FrogTape® provided the tape, my Mom provided the paint, and I provided the grunt labor. Here is the wall we decided to add something to: This is the wall opposite her front … [Read more...]

French Linen and White Dressing Table

French-Linen-and-White-Dressing-Table-Before-2

Hi Friends! Now that my ceiling is finally finished (whew!), I'm enjoying getting back to redoing a few pieces. Today I'm sharing a sweet dressing table that I picked up at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago. Have a look: Ooh nice. No it really wasn't was it? I ended up paying $25 for it, and figured surely I could do something with it. A little French Linen chalk paint by Annie Sloan makes everything better... See how it makes everything better? Here is the desk in … [Read more...]

Faux Coffered Ceiling

Hello friends and welcome to my big ceiling reveal!! I really love to make over all kinds of junk I drag home, but ceilings? Not so much. I mean how much more boring can a ceiling makeover be, right? Yawn. Snore. But it had to be done, y'all. I had to put all my fun makeovers on hold to work on this: Popcorn central woot woot! This was taken a couple of years ago actually when I was writing up my wish list of projects to be accomplished that year. As you can clearly see, this didn't get … [Read more...]

Sweet and Simple Spring Wreath

Sweet and Simple Spring Wreath

Hi friends! Today I am sharing the easiest Spring wreath ever! ( I swear!) This year we hosted my family and my husband's family for an egg hunt and Easter dinner. When I was running around like crazy getting my house together before everyone arrived, I decided my entry needed a little Springtime sprucing, so I headed to the garage to see what I could come up with. I found these white blossoms (on the right) that I ended up not using in my Spring Tulip Basket, and never returned... I'm so … [Read more...]
