Thrift Store Inbox Makeover

Hello awesome Friends! On Tuesday I shared a peek at today's project. Apparently there are a lot of these floating around out there because several of you mention you had one too! I'm talking about this wooden inbox I scored at the thrift store for $2.25 several months ago: Anything that is made of wood catches my eye when I'm thrifting since I know paint can work wonders, and as soon as I saw this on the shelf, I knew just what it could be. Painting it and adding handles turned it … [Read more...]

Stenciled Flatware Box Makeover

Hello lovely friends! If ya'll have spent any time here at all, chances are you've seen a flatware box makeover or two or five. I just cannot pass them up when I see them! As I was looking through my storage room to find my next project, I found three of them, and decided this one would be my next makeover: Seems easy enough, right? That is until you open it: Yikes...that is where all the hard work takes place. Let's see how this baby turned out, shall we? Ooh la … [Read more...]

My Favorite non-Furniture Projects of 2017!

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. Today, amazing friends, I thought I would share one of the pieces I used to have in our old house that I no longer have room for in our new house. And yep I painted it...again! 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...]

Outdoor Halloween Tour 2017

Hello Friends! Happy Halloween and welcome to my outdoor Halloween tour! If you have been following me for a while, you know that we love some Halloween around here. We were undecided whether we were going to decorate the new house this year, especially since we have way more important projects on our to-do list than decorating for Halloween. However the kids in us got all giddy when we started going through the Halloween containers and that was that! Before I start the tour, I want to let … [Read more...]

Dated Cabinet Update

Hey there sweet friends!  Ya'll know my poor booth has been suffering lately thanks to the new house and all. Well I stopped by there last week and confirmed it.

It took a year and a half but their new keeper finally found them!  That was a nice surprise, but I may not have even made my booth fee this month so I really need to … [Read more...]

Getting Organized

Hello sweet friends! There's a lot going on around the new house lately, but the most exciting thing that happened is that I got the garage organized!! Ok so I realize a post about cleaning a garage is not the most exciting post. Honestly I never imagined I would ever write a post about cleaning my garage, but it is kind of like a makeover... I mean especially when the last time you visited, it looked like this: It was probably the star of my Hot Mess Tour (see it HERE if you missed … [Read more...]

Ready for Move-in Day: House Progress so far

Hello amazing Friends, and thank you SO much for all the well-wishes on our new home! We feel so blessed! If you missed it, I shared the grand tour on Tuesday. (See it HERE.) We didn't waste any time getting in there and getting started. I thought I'd stop by today and share what we were able to get finished before the big move. The first thing on the list was to remove the living room carpet. My Hubby started removing the carpet and padding on Saturday morning: Jack went behind him … [Read more...]
