Boy, are you in for a treat. tee hee. If you follow me on social media, you would have seen that I unashamedly found this #trashure loot after I left sunrise service from our church for Easter. I wasn’t shopping Curb le Chic, but I couldn’t let all this stuff go to the landfill during our city cleanup. Wouldn’t you have done the same thing? Today, I’m beginning my makeover fun with that gorgeous antique pie crust table.
Before I get started, let me show you my haul. I will admit that when I was driving into church, I had only spied one thing that caught my eye. However, when we drove back by I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Do you ever have one of those projects that just seems like it keeps bugging you that it needs tweaking? Well, one of the best things about our home is the storage. Our home may be on the small side, but it is tweaked out for storage. A favorite feature is our mudroom. Today, I’m going to share (yet another) mudroom update. This is the third time around, but it’s high time we get it right!
Now, don’t go judging me, k? This mess is after I already took apart the stuff in here. To get a true view of
Today’s the last of my Operation 80’s makeover that started a week ago. Can I get a high five?! Three different thrifted projects all a blast from the past. I’m a bit giddy to wrap up the fun I’ve been having because this last one was a hoot. Check out this totally vintage country find that I’m going to turn into a farmhouse sewing basket. Genius, right? Hang with me now…
However, Let me back up for a minute for those just joining us. A few weeks ago I brought home a haul of 1980’s goodness that
Back a month or so ago, I shared how I went to scope out some items being sold off by a young couple that recently bought a downtown vacant building. I came home with many treasures, like the antique Art Deco waterfall cedar chest I redid (see it here). While there, I also instantly fell in love with this antique lyre coffee table.
Do you blame me? It’s cute, so delicate, and still has some life left in it. I only paid a couple of bucks and there’s a reason why. If you look close, do you see what I see?
Happy dance! Today is another fun Furniture Fixer Upper day, where my blogger friends and I get together to share some DIY fun with you. I’m taking the back-burner and letting my oldest son, Mr. I take the helm as he shares with you how he updated with vintage Broyhill Saga dresser. Isn’t it cool?
I actually had an exact match to this set in a tallboy chest which was a custom request by a client. You can see how it was updated HERE. Not only has this style has always caught my eye for the lines, but also those carved and etched star designs on the front and mirror.
And, when I presented this to my son as a project piece, he was
Call me crazy, call me nuts…whatever you want to say, because I am probably one of few that will actually pay for a broken chair. haha. Well, it was looking so good until I saw the missing parts. However, my soft heart said, “Meh, what’s a little DIY that can’t fix this?” So here I sits with my project before me looking all sad. I aim to show you how to handle a broken chair repair and update it while you’re at it. See what I mean with this gem?
It looks good enough, but if you look closely you’ll see more of what I’m talking about. When I picked it out in the store, I sat on it, wiggled my hiney, and it held
Nothing makes me happier that to share a new project with you. However, when it’s a project that is done by one of my kids, I get beyond excited, even giddy. My proud mama heart takes over and I it amazes me how hard they work to get the job done. Take my oldest daughter’s latest project, an ugly painted beast in the before. Miss C is going to tame this brown beast and show you how it became an updated Art Deco chest of drawers. You go girl!
Many of you know that I have sworn off bringing home awfully painted furniture. I have had my fun messing with them, but apparently my husband keeps forgetting my promise to self, so when I send him out to retrieve project pieces he brings
Isn’t it the best when you love to do something to find kindred spirits who love the same things too? That’s how I feel when I get together with my blogger friend for Furniture Fixer Uppers Day. It’s all about sharing what we love and inspiring you. You’ll see their work in a bit, but let me share with you how I took a thrifted (and very dated) table and turned it into a farmhouse coffee table.
Nothing like a 35% off coupon burning a hole in your pocket, right? I was shopping for different items for my home and kids and spied this table. I quickly gave it a glance then got down on my hands and knees to see if it was solid wood from underneath. Yeah…there is no shame in my game. tsk.
Though many think Christmas is the time to go all out, I say, why wait? I mean, if you love to decorate, do it all the time. However, I don’t mean having a Christmas tree up all year (unless that floats your boat). What I do mean is decor can look awesome any time. I prefer to use elements that can be tweaked for any season or for any event. Today I’m sharing a new technique with heat gun wood burning. To give you an example, I’ve created this super easy craft for you to make. These Nordic wooden trees that are perfect for Christmas and all year long. All you need is one pine board. Woot!
You read it right, one pine board and a few extras to make these wonderful, whimsical trees. I’m so excited to show you a technique that I used to get the look of these trees using one of my favorite tools to create heat gun wood burning.
