Repurposed Skis

Can I tell y'all how excited I am that it's Trash-to-Treasure Tuesday?? Amazing Friends, today I have actual trash to share which is even better! So y'all know how I moved into a new neighborhood, right? These nice people don't really know how I like to pick through their trash that they leave on the curb, in search of potential treasures...except now they probably do. It's all thanks to these perfectly good skis: I saw that a POD was being delivered to the vacant house next door, and … [Read more...]

Inexpensive Wall Décor in the Dining Room

Hey there beautiful friends! I hope those in the U.S. enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday. Did anyone go crazy on Black Friday?

Today I am sharing how I was able to use these beautiful frames I found at the thrift store to create artwork for our dining room … [Read more...]

Sewing Table Redo

The awesome thing about painting furniture white is that if you ever tire of it, it is a great base for so many other colors.

This is what this pretty little table looked like when I originally found it at a yard sale for $20 several years ago: It had pretty details but was showing some wear, especially on … [Read more...]
