Hello lovelies!! I have a quick makeover for ya'll today! Can I tell you how excited I am to dive back into painting? Now that our kitchen is complete and our landscaping is done, AND the cooler weather is on the way. (I hope!) Today I'm sharing the simple makeover of this high chair I picked up for $5 at the thrift store at the beginning of the Summer: It was really dirty, almost like it had been stored in a barn or shed for about 50 years. I just loved it though and had to bring … [Read more...]

Cottage-Inspired Dresser Redo

80’s Shelf gets an Update

Hello amazing Friends! Remember the 80's? Remember 80's décor? Why did hearts cut into every home décor accessory and furniture piece seem to make so much sense back then? Thrift stores are filled with these unfortunate pieces and there are very few ways to update them, but every once in a while I get lucky. I found this shelf complete with heart cut-out for $4.98: By get lucky, I mean that the piece with the heart can be whacked off... Instant update! That is usually not … [Read more...]

Antique Fixer Upper Table

Hello amazing friends! Today I am sharing a project that is long overdue. For my last craft market way back in 2013 (it was a sea of cottage white but you can see it HERE), my Mom decided to paint several pieces to sell too. She sold most of what she painted except for a few tables. One of the pieces was a quirky antique table. After it didn't sell at the market, she put it up in her attic. About a year later, she was cleaning up there and asked if I wanted to take the table and do something … [Read more...]
