Desk Makeover

Desk Makeover 3

When my hubby and I got married, we gave away his beloved black faux leather bachelor sofas and sold my blue and white girly-patterned sofa. Then we purchased a new gender-neutral sectional, black T'V stand, and matching desk.  Fast forward several years and he now gladly let's me make all décor-related decisions. (I mean he did let me chop up our sectional...really you should take a look at that if you haven't already.) I think he just wants me to be happy, so he doesn't have to listen to me … [Read more...]

Bunny Crossing Sign from Fence Pickets

Bunny Crossing Sign

I found yet another use for my old fence pickets stash, a whimsical sign perfect for Spring. (See how much we love you, Spring? We made a sign for you and everything.) It's also sweet for Easter, but I can keep it in my garden all season! This project was free. Those are my favorite! I started with two pieces of fencing I had stashed in my garage. I painted them with Country Chic paint in Elegance since I had it on hand and it's a perfect Springtime color. Then as I do … [Read more...]

Thrift Store Side Table Goes Glam

Thrift store table update with metallic paint!

Glam side table? I know that doesn't sound like me, does it? Recently a few friends and I were invited to challenge ourselves to makeover a piece of furniture, but the kicker was, it had to be a metallic makeover!  You know I love a challenge, but this was a tough one for me. Then I remembered I had this little thrift store beauty (not so much) that's been sitting in my garage forever, just begging for a makeover. I paid around $25 for it and I knew it would be perfect for this … [Read more...]

DIY Coastal Inspired Bathroom Art

Then I used this method to transfer my letters and painted them in using acrylic paint:

I've been working on my boys' bathroom since 2011. We pulled everything out except for the tub surround,  and replaced it all. It was just before Christmas and I had my sister and her family coming to stay with us, so I rushed to get it finished. I've tweaked it a bit and redone several things for it like this stool, and this shelf, and this chair.  However, it needed just a couple more finishing touches. Today I'm sharing the DIY bathroom art I made to match the coastal feeling of the … [Read more...]

Ballard Inspired Monogrammed Fabric Wastebasket

Ballard Monogrammed Garbage Can Knock Off 19

Hi friends! I'm excited to be participating in a little tour with several blog friends called "Rock Your Knock Off" where we each choose a high-end item and make our own for way less!  I'm sharing a monogrammed fabric wastebasket that's just perfect for my master bath. The $89 price tag? I'll make my own, thank you very much. Here's what I used to make my version: I found this cheapie can at Kmart. It took less than half a yard of fabric to complete. First I made a pattern by … [Read more...]

Updated Entryway with a $5 Yard Sale Find

Arched Metal Yard Sale Find 1

Hi lovelies! Today I'm sharing how I updated my entryway with an awesome yard sale find from last summer. It was time. This is what was still hanging this morning: Not the garland, just the wreath. It was perfect for my Christmas Home Tour and I thought since it was just a snowman, it could hang out with us a little longer. But my husband said this is the reason Spring has eluded us.  Seriously? I took it down immediately and anyone who lives near me, I'm sorry, it's all my … [Read more...]

$1 Yard Sale Step Stool Makeover

Reach Stool 14

I was looking for a little step stool to replace the plastic stool in the boys' bathroom and luckily, I didn't have to look further than my garage! I found the perfect stool for $1 last summer at a yard sale. I am so ready for yard sale season! Even though I still have several ahemm...projects awaiting me in the garage from last season, it's fun to find new treasures! This stool was perfect because it is chunky and super sturdy: I love it even more because someone hand-made it. :) It … [Read more...]

A Men’s Valet Stand Becomes a Pretty Stool for Her

Sweet Stool for her from a Men's Standing Valet 18

Last Summer I found this rather worn men's valet stand at an estate sale. I shoved it in my garage and it's been buried there ever since. Our theme for this month's Get Your DIY on challenge is Trash to Treasure, and I thought this would be the perfect project! I'm not sure what I saw in it to begin with, here is the before: What I think I liked is that the lid to the bench opens up and it was filled to the brim with all sorts of items. I found a pocket watch, an old shaving blade, a … [Read more...]

Simple Spring Wreath

Simple Spring Wreath with Apples

It's that time of year again...you know the one...my mom's birthday!  My mom is always happy when I make her something, so since she's been hinting at a new wreath for her front door, that's exactly what she got. I love how it turned out, so I'm excited to share it with you today! I wanted to make her something fresh and cheerful, but that didn't scream Spring, especially since there is still snow threatening our area. This was so simple to make. First I gathered my … [Read more...]
