My Closet Makeover

Hey Friends! I've got a fun post to share with you today! Do you know what is hot hot hot on my blog right now, thanks to Pinterest? (Follow me here :) ) My Master Closet! Maybe it's all those freezing cold temps keeping us indoors (or 10ft snow drifts for some!) that get us thinking about what projects we want to tackle inside. Evidently, tackling the master closet is on a lot of people's minds lately. I redid my closet before I started blogging, and I first posted the makeover in early … [Read more...]

Hello lovely Friends! I'm always so happy when you stop by. If you are new around here, welcome! I'm so excited that you have decided to follow along with me! It's been about a year since I rounded up a few (or 30) of my own furniture makeovers, so I thought it was time to put together another.

DIY Mini Storage Cabinet with Reclaimed Wood

Hello, awesome Friends! I'm back today with a fun little project for ya. A while back, my talented friend Wendi of H2O Bungalow pulled a group of us gals together who have little fear when it comes to power tools, in hopes of inspiring our readers who might want to give a few tools a try to go for it. Each month we share simple DIY projects that involve power tools, but that anyone can tackle! I look back at some of my earlier projects where I show my hubs cutting things for me and chuckle. I … [Read more...]

Curbside Suitcase Makeover

That's right, no shame here. I sure DID pick up a suitcase off of someone's curb. In fact, I picked up two! I was taking my Mom home the other day and happened through the neighborhood I grew up in when I spied these two lovelies sitting out for the trash: I'm sure these were all the rage back in the day. I quickly threw them in my car and was on my way. Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday and I had another project in mind, but I really wanted to play around with my new luggage. (Plus … [Read more...]

Shutter Shelf

Hello lovelies! I have a thrifty little redo for ya'll today! When I find something at a thrift store, I can almost always imagine the end product right then and there. But then there are times when I find something having no earthly idea what I'll do with it, but I throw it in my cart anyway. Those are the things that sit there in my to-do pyramid for months mocking me. I bought this shutter over TWO YEARS ago: People!! That's more than 24 months I had to dream up an idea for this … [Read more...]

How to Paint a Laminate Kitchen Table

Hi there, awesome Friends! I am so excited about today's post! If you follow along with me on Facebook, you might remember this little kitchen set I spied at the thrift store over the Summer: Gorgeous? No it certainly is not, but together we decided I should get it anyway. Although the top is laminate, the chairs are solid and the whole set was only a mere $45! It was originally $89, but all furniture was half off that day so I just had to bring it home. I love anything … [Read more...]
