Time for some fun! Today is Furniture Fixer Uppers day and you know this is right up my alley, right? I mean, what’s more fun than getting to get creative and share the projects done by my blogger friends? It’s all to inspire you. Today is all about this antique chest I found while thrifting.
This never fails to happen to me. I walk into the store knowing full well that I don’t need another piece to work on and am there on a solitary mission. Then, there it is…a big ol’ sign saying 50% off furniture. Well, any sane person couldn’t ignore that, right?
It’s been a while since I’ve done a furniture makeover and with fall on the way I wanted to add some autumn colors to the mix. One of my favorite things to do in the evening is enjoy those gorgeous sunsets that light up the sky. It looks as if the whole event was painted in glory, and boy, does it sparkle like gold. I decided to capture a bit of that color in this vintage Mersman table makeover using metallic paint.

I am partnering with DecoArt and Michaels Craft Stores to showcase a new line of metallic paints that seriously have me drooling. A girl loves some bling!
Wouldn’t you say that my project of choice is lacking some spunk? It has potential even though the top is a faux marble type material and it has wear. My vision sees a whole new look that will
It’s always fun to take a vintage piece of furniture that has seen better days and tweak it a bit by staying true to its era. That’s where this outdated dresser comes into play.
My oldest daughter was looking for a piece of furniture to work on and we found this sweet piece on Craigslist, and thankfully it wasn’t too far away from us. It has great bones with only wear to the face and top.
I have taught my daughter how to prep a piece by making any repairs and sanding, as she did in her makeover I mentioned in this older post. I can’t tell you enough how rewarding to see my efforts pay off to her benefit.

When trying to decided what type of finish she would do, we knew it was going to be all about the knobs. The original ones were lacking character and this dresser needed something to make it pop.
A couple of weeks ago we revealed our patio makeover complete with pergola, 10 ft. dining table with benches, a faux fireplace (get the tutorial HERE), and a faux shipping crate table. Today, I am sharing how to create that industrial style crate table with a wood round from Home Depot and a tree stump. PLUS, I have a giveaway for you!
Do you love a sweet love story? I do, especially when it has a happy ending. Let me give you some background before I show you how I used chalky finish paint to create an old world look.
A couple of weeks ago, we took our family out for a fun day of hiking, picnics, and all around quality time in honor of one of our daughter’s birthdays. Before we set out on our jaunt, we decided to stop into Goodwill to see if we could find the birthday girl a camera case since she had lost hers at the zoo the week prior.
We were able to find a hot pink case, perfect for a little girl, then after that I decided to quickly make my normal rounds. I say quickly because although my kids are used to shopping with me, my hubby doesn’t care to treasure hunt, and because I had promised myself no new pieces until I emptied my stash and built the work table I’ve been craving. And that’s when I spied this…
I literally gasped and said, “Oh no.” I gave a silent point to my husband and I could see his face say, “Here we go again.” Hoping the price tag was too much so that I couldn’t buy it, I crept over that jungle of weight equipment to find it was marked $100. Sigh…thankfully I had a 35% off coupon burning a hole in my pocket. tsk. Guess my work table would have to wait. My hubby agreed this piece was coming home with us.
