Cane-back Chairs Makeover

Hello sweet friends! Thank you for sharing in my excitement Tuesday about the completion of our very first room in our new house: our guest bathroom!

Serpentine Dresser Makeover

Hello lovely Friends, and welcome to the first day of June! I'm ready to get this Summer started, how about you? Today I'm sharing my first yard sale find of the season and what I did with it!

We're friends, … [Read more...]

Painted Bar Stools

Hey there, awesome Friends! I have a sweet makeover for ya'll today! I'm sharing how I updated these inexpensive bar stools I found for $5 each at two different yard sales: Can I tell you how thrilled I am that I finally did something with these things? They've been taking up valuable real estate in my garage for at least two years. Now they are updated and fresh with their beautiful new paint job: I mean who knew those ho-hum builder grade bar stools could be so … [Read more...]
