China Hutch Update

Hello lovely Friends!! Good news...I am happy to report that my floors are officially in!! Real progress, ya'll. I still need to add the quarter round trim around the perimeter before I can call it done, but it is so nice to see it coming together! Today I am sharing my china hutch. This piece was the very first piece of furniture that I ever painted with chalk paint. I bought it back in 2000 as part of a dining room set. Here it is at the very beginning: Now just imagine them … [Read more...]

Hey there awesome Friends! We have just been chugging along here and I think we are almost ready for floors!

If you missed why … [Read more...]

The Evolution of My Thrifty Dining Room

Hello again awesome Friends!! How are you feeling this fine January morning? My Hubby can't make it till midnight, so I partied with my 13 year old and a bottle of sparkling cider ha ha.

That's probably because it evolved over time. Let's go way back to the beginning. When my Hubby and I met, we both owned our … [Read more...]

28 Farmhouse Furniture Ideas {with Hometalk!}

Hey there Friends! You know I love a good furniture makeover, right? One of my favorite furniture makeovers of mine is this hutch: The reason I love this hutch so much is not the color I chose, or the hardware I added, or how I styled it. It is the timeless farmhouse feel of it. That and the fact that I rescued it from the back of a shed at an estate sale. It was covered in grease and grime, and I loved it back to life. There may or may not have been a few four-letter words fly out of my … [Read more...]
