Slipcovering an Armless Accent Chair

and sewed in place. Again , I'm about a quarter of an inch from the edge.

A couple of years ago, my Mother-in-law gave me two beautiful accent chairs in the most perfect shade of blue.  I loved them immediately. It didn't hurt that they looked brand new and were free!  Take a look: These days I'm looking to lighten up my living room a bit.  We don't get a ton of natural light in there, so I'm starting with these chairs. (Shh...don't tell him, but that cabinet is also on my hit list.) The easiest way to give them a new look was to slipcover them: A … [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...]

Glam side table? I know that doesn't sound like me, does it?

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...]
