Wooden Thrift Store Box Update

Happy Tuesday, amazing friends! Today's makeover is a small one. A little wood box has so many potential uses, so pretty much any time I see one, I buy it. This one was probably the saddest one I've come across: I'm not sure what purpose this served, but what was up with that faux wood contact paper? Or maybe we should be asking why this faux wood contact paper was ever even a thing? Actually I think I remember this look being in our kitchen growing up...I think we had counters that … [Read more...]

French-Inspired Girl’s Table and Chair Set

Hello sweet Friends! I have the cutest little table and chair set to share with ya'll today! But first do you mind if I share my heart a bit?  We had to say goodbye to our sweet kitty, Holly on Friday. You may have seen her in photos from time to time. Most recently I was photographing this table I shared last Thursday: I didn't include this photo in that post, but took a few pics of her after she made herself comfy in the shot.

Unfinished Wood Console Table Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! I'm so glad you stopped by today! Actually I'm so glad you stop by every day. :) Remember a week or so ago when I shared this little unfinished table that I painted, one my Dad had made several years ago? See that post HERE if you missed it. Well when I brought this home from my parent's attic, I also picked up its big sister: My parents and I did craft markets for about 15 or so years and these are tables my Dad built.

Painting Unfinished Wood Furniture

In a perfect world, every furniture piece I paint would have a dark brown stain to start since it is the perfect first layer for distressing. I really try to avoid already painted pieces mostly for that reason, but how about unfinished pieces? Yeah...don't usually care for those either. I mean if I can save myself some work, right? Hello sweet friends! Today I am sharing how I tackled one such unfinished piece. My parents and I used to do craft markets for about 15 years or so, and my Dad … [Read more...]

Antique Fixer Upper Table

Hello amazing friends! Today I am sharing a project that is long overdue. For my last craft market way back in 2013 (it was a sea of cottage white but you can see it HERE), my Mom decided to paint several pieces to sell too. She sold most of what she painted except for a few tables. One of the pieces was a quirky antique table. After it didn't sell at the market, she put it up in her attic. About a year later, she was cleaning up there and asked if I wanted to take the table and do something … [Read more...]

Today three such pieces are getting their chance to be more than they ever thought they could: They became a sweet place to toss your favorite jewelry pieces: It is perfect for earrings, rings, and … [Read more...]
