Dated Little Rocker Makeover

Hello amazing friends! Can I tell you how nice it is to have the freedom to dig to through my pile and pick something to make over, and not feel like I should be doing something house-related?

Hello sweet Friends! Are ya'll up for a little furniture flip? How about five of them?

The Mason Jar Blue Headboard Bench

Well sweet Friends, the floors are officially ready for the new hardwoods, but I decided to switch gears a bit and paint the big furniture pieces for these two rooms before installing the new floors. It seemed to make more sense, don't you think? So yesterday I painted my hutch and the base of the dining room table. Hoping to wax them today. They look so bright and fresh! Next up is the desk. :) Since I am knee deep in my own makeovers at the moment I started digging to see what I thought my … [Read more...]

If you missed why … [Read more...]
