Beachy Bathroom Makeover

Beachy Bathroom Makeover

  I've got a room makeover to share today! My boys' bathroom was renovated and then decorated in a mad rush before my sister and her family came to visit a few years ago. I've never been happy with it, so I decided to work on it. When I moved in, I painted the walls with an oops paint I used in my last house, hung a new curtain and threw some pictures up on the walls. Here's what it looked like: Pretty fabulous huh? We even had fancy clear plastic towel bars and a matching toilet … [Read more...]

Old Thrift Store Frames Become New Treasures

Old Thrift Store Frames become New Treasures!

One of my favorite spaces to decorate is a bathroom.  It's a small space so even on a tight budget, you can make it great.  You can have fun with it too, and it doesn't even have to match the rest of the house, especially in a kid's bathroom! Our Get Your DIY On party is coming up this Sunday and this month's theme is Room Revamps. We redid our boys' bathroom before I started blogging, and because my sister and her family were coming in town, I quickly threw stuff up on the walls.  I've made … [Read more...]

Coastal-Inspired Kid’s Table

Coastal Inspired Kid's Table

Well hello! Do you follow me on Facebook? {You really should.} I share all kinds of little fun things on there that don't make it here, like this little kid's table I found at a local online yard sale FB page a little while back. I had been searching and searching for something sturdy to replace a cheaply made table I had purchased for my son a couple of years ago, and this looked perfect! It was $50, which is more than I wanted to spend but it was solid. It had also lasted through the … [Read more...]

Sewing Chair with a {top secret} Drawer

Sewing Chair with a Secret Compartment

Hi friends! How about a fun makeover today? Every month a few blog friends get together to share fun furniture makeovers.  The catch is, there is a theme! Some of our previous themes have been: Metallic, Bold, Flowers, and Travel.  This month's theme is NUMBERS! There are a lot of ways to incorporate numbers into a piece of furniture, and this chair was the perfect candidate for this challenge: I found it this sad little chair at a yard sale for $5. There wasn't anything exciting … [Read more...]

15 Ordinary Items Repurposed

15 Ordinary Items Repurposed 1

Today I'm digging through my archives to bring you 15 ordinary items that I gave an entirely new life to.  You might never look at these ordinary items the same way again! 1. This was the drawer to the awkward "hump" in our babies' changing table. When we cut the hump off, this was left: I turned it into a mini bookcase to hold my son's books: Fun Drawer Upcycle 2. I found this painting at a yard sale for $2: I replaced the painting with chicken wire and added fresh paint to … [Read more...]

Teapot Garden Feature

How to Make this Whimsical Teapot Garden Feature

If you asked me what project I receive the most emails about, I would say hands down, my Sew Easy Outdoor Cushion Covers tutorial. People are so excited that they can cover their worn out cushions for a fraction of the cost of new ones and I love to hear all the positive feedback. I even receive pictures! But the second project I get the most emails about is not even something I created. Know what it is? This: I shared it as part of my Front  Yard Garden Tour last summer, and I have … [Read more...]

How to Add Glass to Cabinet Doors

How to Add Glass to Cabinet Doors

  Hi friends! I recently shared my kitchen makeover, and I had several requests to share how I replaced the raised panels on my kitchen cabinets with glass. Adding glass to just one set of cabinets had the biggest impact in my kitchen. This project was a lot easier than I expected, but I have to admit that cutting out those panels requires a little bit of guts.  Although I did mine a little differently in the end, I got my courage from Kristin from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. … [Read more...]

Mini Drop Cloth Rosette Stool Makeover {a $5 Yard Sale Find}

Drop Cloth Rosette Trimmed Stool

I have a fun makeover for you today! Seems like it's been a while since I shared a makeover, probably because I've been knee-deep in my kitchen redo for what seems like forever! I found this little stool at a yard sale for $5 a couple of weeks ago: I liked the chair height of it and of course, the price tag.  It was a bit beat up though, and not in a "Its got tons of character" sort of way... So I immediately came up with the perfect plan in my mind... You know how sometimes … [Read more...]

How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets (A Step-by-Step Guide)

How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets (A Step-by-Step Guide)

If you're in the market to paint your kitchen cabinets, you have come to the right place! I am sharing every single solitary step to a brand new space! While the actual priming and painting only took three days (can you say marathon painting?), reviving your kitchen cabinets will also require at least one solid day for prep, and at least one additional day to put everything back together. I took all day Friday to prep, primed and painted Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, and put everything back … [Read more...]
