How to Remove Stain without Sanding

How to Remove Stain without Sanding

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing how I removed the stain from my dining room table top without sanding. I read a lot of posts that talk about sanding the surface of a furniture piece to remove the stain. I thought I'd share another option that is pretty simple, that doesn't remove any of the original surface through sanding. You may remember this before photo of my dining set at the thrift store: I paid $85 for this beautiful set. This is how it looks today: To remove the old stain, I … [Read more...]

Desk Makeover

Glass knob

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...]

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...]

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...]
