Vintage Card Catalog Makeover

Today, I am so excited to share my vintage card catalog makeover with you! Last month, I picked up a vintage card catalog for $20 at an estate sale. I blogged about the estate sale here in case you want to see all the awsomeness that I picked up. Structurally the piece was solid. Visually it was covered in layers and layers of brown paint- right down to the ...continue reading

Target Basket Planter Makeover

I usually hang a basket on our front door instead of a wreath.  The basket always seemed too small but I liked it so it stayed. This Spring I found another supersized willow basket so I brought it home and I nailed the size! I know I am tooting my own horn but I kinda don't care because I nailed it. After seven plus years of living here I finally nailed the ...continue reading

Most people hate Mondays, I used to but not so much anymore. For me, Monday is garbage day. That means that every Monday morning, there  is the possibility of a curbside treasure waiting for me to bring home. I found these on a Monday. I also found this and this.

Rustic Coffee Table Makeover

This Summer we had to make some large repairs to the exterior of the house which included building a garage. With everything displaced, I had nowhere to work so my list of projects was put on hold. Hopefully construction will be finished soon and I can share some pictures with you. With the holidays coming, I couldn't wait any longer and spent the month of ...continue reading

Vintage Sewing Table to Nightstand Makeover

I am finally ready to share my new nightstand with you. Actually it is new to our room but it has spent time in a few different areas of our home. I have been without a nightstand since my son decided to live at home for his sophomore year of college. He needed a desk and instead of buying a new one, I sucked it up and gave him the desk I made over and was ...continue reading

Powder Room Progress- Accent Wall

I finally made progress on the powder room and I am so excited to share it with you! (Insert happy dance here) After I painted the powder room walls, my rustic glam makeover pretty much stalled. In my head, I planned to stencil a glam wall treatment. The problem was, I couldn't decide on a stencil or whether to stencil an accent wall or stencil all the walls. ...continue reading

Powder Room, Entry and Office Progress

You will see the progress and ...continue reading

DIY Chevron Coffee Table Makeover

The living room is really starting to come together. First I painted the room white which really lightened things up. Next I changed the curtains and slipcovered the chairs. I wanted to make the room more neutral and bring in color with pillows and accessories. Keep in mind that the living room makeover has been evolving since July 4th 2014. Anyway, I am ...continue reading
