Front Door Updated and Ready for Fall!

Hello amazing friends!! It's hard to believe tomorrow is the first day of Fall, but our front door and I are ready! I am so ready for some cooler days to head our way, and not only did our front door get an update, I also added a little Fall flair! First here is our front door before: We strive so hard to get that "weathered" look for furniture pieces and such, but this authentic weathered finish just wasn't doing this door any favors. Any guesses what color I decided to paint it … [Read more...]

Frame and Mirror Upcycle

Happy Tuesday, awesome Friends!! I spent the better part of this past weekend in my paint pants painting all the trim in my kitchen and this hallway that leads to the back stairs: That includes NINE doorways, 3 large windows in the kitchen (one is actually a door), and five interior doors (laundry room, garage, storage room, door to FROG, and pantry), plus all the base molding and chair rail that connects them! This just seemed like such a daunting task, but I am so happy it is … [Read more...]

Pedestal Kitchen Table Makeover

I am SO excited to have a brand spankin new makeover to share with you today, fabulous Friends!! I Iove how this one turned out! Working in my new organized garage (See that beauty HERE if you missed it.) made it so much easier to tackle this project! In my garage reveal I shared a little peek at today's project piece: a table I picked up just before the big move. I knew that for my eat-in kitchen area, I wanted a round table. I originally decided I would treat myself and go wild and buy a … [Read more...]

Desk turned Dressing Table

Hello amazing friends! It's Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday and I am so excited to share a makeover with ya'll today! No I didn't stop the presses here amidst the new house chaos to update a piece of furniture, I planned ahead for this one.
