Mini Chest Makeover

Hey there, my awesome Friends! I missed ya'll on Thursday! I had a great long weekend, but I'm pretty sure I went up a pant size. I ate a half a batch of chocolate chip cookies myself. In one night. (And they were totally worth it.) Now it's time to get back to work stocking my booth for the Holidays, so I can pay for all the things I bought on Black Friday. No I didn't go out and fight crowds...I found all kinds of great deals online this year! My kind of shopping! I told you last week … [Read more...]

CD Holder Update

Hello, my dear Friends! I usually post on Thursdays, but I took the day off yesterday since it was my birthday!

Thrift Store Box Gets a Makeover

Hello friends!  I have a cute little makeover to share with you today. I found this box at the thrift store last week for $2: Of course it didn't look like this when I bought it...it looked like this:  It was pretty beat up. But I adopted it, welcomed it into my home, and gave it a new life. I used the tiny bit of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old white that I had left and gave it two coats. Then I taped off a chevron pattern...  And painted over the tape in a mix of old white and … [Read more...]
