The Evolution of My Thrifty Dining Room

Hello again awesome Friends!! How are you feeling this fine January morning? My Hubby can't make it till midnight, so I partied with my 13 year old and a bottle of sparkling cider ha ha. I'm kicking off the new year with the evolution of my dining room! Although this space is far from where it originally started, I've never shared any kind of before and after. That's probably because it evolved over time. Let's go way back to the beginning. When my Hubby and I met, we both owned our … [Read more...]

$60 Yard Sale Hutch

Hello lovely people! I hope you had a fun, sun-filled weekend! My youngest was sick so ours was very low key. It did allow me to put the finishing touches on this fantastic hutch I'm sharing with you today though! A few weeks back we had our annual neighborhood yard sale. I left my Mom in charge at ours so I could take a quick ride through the neighborhood to scout out any goodies when I came across this beauty: For $60!! Yes, please! I also picked up a great console table for $10 at the … [Read more...]

How to Shop Your Home {A Three Month Decorating Challenge} Part 2

Hi friends and welcome back to the three-month decorating challenge, where I and five of my favorite blogger friends were challenged to decorate a space three different ways for three months! The catch is that we can only use what we already have. (I cheated...a teeny tiny bit.) I chose my hutch circa 1999: Which I painted a couple of years ago...as a reminder, here it was at Christmas: And you may remember I decided to keep the ironstone and keep it clean and fresh with a … [Read more...]

How to Shop Your Home {A Three Month Decorating Challenge}

Welcome to the three-month decorating challenge where I and a few favorite blogging friends are going to share ideas on how to decorate using what you already have! This will be a challenge for me because I like to decorate a space, a surface, whatever it may be and that's how it stays. I do that mostly because it costs money to keep changing things up, but how nice would it be to be able to change things up without spending a dime, by shopping the house? That's exactly what my friend … [Read more...]

Duck Egg Blue and White China Cabinet

Guess what time it is? Time for Themed Furniture Thursday!!  Are you excited? Because I am excited to share my makeover with you! This month's theme was "two-toned". My harlequin bench that I just shared last week would have been a perfect project for this theme with its yummy Paris Grey against bright white. However I have another piece to share today... A china cabinet! I found this beauty just as it was being rolled out onto the floor of a local thrift store. I waited … [Read more...]

China Cabinet Makeover

OK ladies, why do we feel like a gigantic china hutch is something we have to cross off the list of must-haves when first furnishing a home? Maybe it's because our mothers and grandmothers had them? We have to have a place to display those dishes we so carefully chose for our wedding registry? Maybe a better question is, what do we do with our hutch when we no longer cherish it in a way we once did? Craigs list is full of them so good luck trying to sell it there. Mine sat in storage and then … [Read more...]
