Painted Entertainment Stand in Hale Navy

It is on a daily basis that I get asked questions either about a project that I have worked on in the past or a person has their own project they’d like some advice on. I’m eager to help and try to be informative. This time around, however, I am able to physically help out a local follower with this piece she had. Her second-hand find is about to become a painted entertainment stand. Check it out.

Am I the only one that actually pays good hard cash for something broken? ahem. (please say yes!) When I spied this stool, I enjoyed that it was made in the likeness of a vintage stool with the threaded center. However, on closer inspection, the top fell off and Read more

Vintage Chest Nightstand in Navy Blue

It’s that fun time of the month where my Furniture Fixer Upper friends and I get together to inspire you with our furniture makeovers. Yay! If you saw my post a week ago, you knew my dad brought me a haul of furniture that included a vintage side table in hot mess state that I redid. Now, it’s time for this vintage chest nightstand to shine.

It’s been a fun run or making over the stash of furniture I purchased from a storage unit. If you need to catch up, you can see the previous pieces here: (1) Mid Century Modern dresser (2) antique dresser (3) waterfall chest. Now it’s time for the last piece from that haul of goodies.

Boho Mid Century Modern Dresser

What’s a mom supposed to do when her kids ask to go to the thrift store? Take a deep breath and reply, “Sure, but you know, I just may find something there that I can’t leave and that means hauling it home, etc., etc.” They bat an eyelash, but I’m like…I want my storage space open just for a while! haha. Well, as I walked out to our vehicle I bid farewell to the open spaces and continued on my journey. Last week I showed you what I did with the farmhouse drop-leaf table I found that day. Today, I’m going to show you how a classic piece became a Boho Mid Century Modern dresser. Take a look…

Normally at this time of year we would be celebrating my grandmother-in-law’s birthday. However, just after her birthday last year she quietly passed while sitting out on her porch…her favorite thing to do in the evening before bed. What a way to go! I mean, not to make light, but if I had a choice of how I was going to meet my Lord, that would be it.
