Modern Farmhouse Chic Nighstand

Earlier this week in my table project post, I promised to show you a furniture makeover that one of my daughters had been working on. Miss E. has never had her time in the spotlight as that is not usually her style anyway. However, I felt the need to share this project for a couple of different reasons. I’d like to show you how she gave this outdated chest nightstand a modern farmhouse chic look. Plus, inspire you to do more.

My awesome parents are always on the lookout for project piece for me or my kids. They know that each time I get a free piece that I pass it along to one of them. You can imagine how excited they get when a new one comes along. To see their past work, you can check out these posts.

When my mom told me she had a small chest to work on, I decided it would be Miss E’s turn. She has done piece before, like this one she Read more

Entertainment Console from Curbside Dresser

Trashure is my word for treasure found in the trash (aka. one man’s trash is another woman’s treasure). Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday! As I showed you last week, this Mid Century Modern credenza is going to get a new life as an entertainment console. Woot! Just wait until you see what my blogger friends have for you too.

Here’s the story behind my find. I was being a good girl and not even going out junkin’ during our city clean-up. Why, you ask? Because my garage shop is a wreck from our remodel and I have NO ROOM! Plus, I only like to keep on hand what I can work on in the next few weeks.

Anyhoo, it was our quadrant’s time to set out trash and I promised myself that if I saw something en route from my house to errands that I was allowed to pick it up. Only catch was it had to be AFTER all the pickers had already gone through. Otherwise, all was off-limits. So here’s a sampling of some of what I found in one day…eep! Read more

It’s no joke that my house doesn’t stay clean. For the most part, that’s just fine with me as it means my family is here and happily living. However, when folks come over for a visit, I really don’t need them to see that…er… love. ahem. Read more

Upcycled Wall Clock Fun Times Two

While maybe at times I pass up on cast-offs that cross my path, the one thing I can assuredly say I can’t resist is wood. The wood can be old, worn, beaten down, and even just like these two broken tiered stands, just needing new life.  They are my dynamic duo about to get a brand new life as an upcycled wall clock. Woot!

You may be wondering how I came upon such beauty. Well, the story goes that I was feverishly trying to wrap up our kitchen remodel reveal when my friend, Mandy, sent me a message asking if I wanted to take a peek at her Read more

Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel Reveal

Do you hear that? The proverbial angels are singing because we have come to the day that I can finally show you our farmhouse kitchen remodel reveal. It’s been a long time coming and this post definitely won’t be short and will have MANY pictures (no apologies, ahem). So, come along as I take back to our beginning and fill you in on our DIY adventure.

First, let me say a HUGE thank you to my awesome family. JC worked wonders in all aspects of this project. For instance, he took on things he’s never worked on before, all while working many jobs. To our six wonderful kids for being patient as we worked when we could, and for coming along and helping us complete our dream. We couldn’t do it without you! And, for my Lord as I know we couldn’t have done it without Him.

Why the drama you say? It’s just a kitchen, right? Well, to us it’s much more than that. About 3 years ago (2.833 years ago to be exact). While we didn’t work 24/7 on it for that length of time, it still took up much of our free time. And if you know what it’s like being a homeschooling family of 8, that “free time” really doesn’t exist. Also, because of the seasons here, we had to take breaks from it in the summer and work on outdoor projects. In addition, when a vehicle went bad, or overtime at day jobs comes up, we have to stop. So frustrating.

However, we decided it was time to fix a few bugs that were still existing in our home after a quick remodel we did after we moved in. You can see our first post back in 2016 HERE, but I’ll update here as well.

Here is what you would have seen when we bought our home in 2003.

Vintage Dixie Dresser with Frottage Paint Technique

Are you in the mood for a furniture makeover? I am! Funny thing how the internet works. It studies your behaviors and throws ads up that it thinks you will be interested in. Well, it worked this time. I spied this for sale in a local market only because an ad popped up and I was hooked. I mean, just look at that beautiful bow front! sigh… Now it’s time for not only a makeover of this vintage Dixie dresser, but also some fun for you too.
