China Cabinet Refresh

Hello  amazing friends! I was SO hoping  to share our big kitchen reveal today. I got all my photos taken and edited yesterday, and then I sat down to write my post, and NO internet connection! Several neighbors have been complaining about our Internet provider and losing their service over the past week or so, but it hadn’t affected us…until now. Terrible timing! Grrrr! I couldn’t leave y’all hanging today, so thanks to my cell phone, I was able to pull an old favorite from my archives to … [Read more...]

Knife Block Makeover

Hey there beautiful friends! I have a quick makeover for ya'll today. I've had the same knife blocks since I got married...the first time. Here is what they looked like before: These were originally from Target and I just love the shape of the larger one. My first husband and I actually registered at Target since there were a lot of practical things on our wishlist. That was almost 20 years ago! Now that our kitchen is starting to look so clean and bright, I knew these guys were … [Read more...]

DIY Range Hood Cover

Hello sweet friends!! We are moving right along on our kitchen update, and today I am back to share how I gave our range hood a custom look for around $50. I had shared a couple of ideas of what I liked in this post HERE, but they had different range hoods than we did, so I had to figure out how to build a range hood cover that worked with the one we have. First, let's remember what it looked like before: There were two small cabinet doors above it, but that storage space was mostly … [Read more...]

Painting the Smalls #3

Hi awesome friends!! I'm back today sharing a third round of smalls for my booth! Smalls are the little things I need to help fill my booth, and honestly they are what pay my booth fee many months! These smaller makeovers are very simple, so they don't each need a post of their own, but together they are a fun bunch! Here is what these items looked like before my paintbrush and I got a hold of them: There isn't anything super exciting about these pieces. They all came from the thrift … [Read more...]

$4 Thrift Store Lamp Makeover

Hello amazing Friends! I have a sweet little makeover for ya'll today!

When I went to redo this one though, the burlap … [Read more...]
