Sometimes there are projects that you envision in your head the minute you spy something. Maybe that doesn’t always happen, but when it does it is fantastically fun to get it done. That’s what happened to me when I spied this beauty below available online. Did I need a headboard…no. Did I need another project…not really. But…did I want to take this vintage gem and create a French Provincial headboard bench…YES! (giveaway alert!)
A month has flown by since my family and I launched our Finding Home program and we couldn’t be more excited to be back at it with two new chapters. In my last post about this program, I shared we did a triple gift delivery of three furniture pieces to three different deserving families. This time, I’m not only sharing the happy ending of two more of those three stories, but inviting you to the beginning of Finding Home Episode 2.
In my last update, I shared the story of the blue chest of drawers delivered to one deserving couple. Today, I’m proud to share with you the other two stories from our program beginning.
Do you know what time it is? It’s Furniture Fixer Uppers time! What fun it is to not only get to work on another project for you, but to be able to do it alongside some of the most awesome DIY gals I know. This vintage Art Deco buffet is my subject for this month’s fun. You’ll see the rest of the awesome projects in a bit. (giveaway alert!)
The functional use of a buffet can’t be denied. They fit easily into almost any room of your home as either a server as intended, or entertainment center, or even retrofitted into a bathroom vanity. This particular one appealed to me for the
Today’s the day! I feel like a kid that’s been waiting to open a BIG birthday present, but instead I’m getting the sheer joy of giving presents to others. My family and I launched our Finding Home program a just over a week ago on my birthday with the intent of doing more for others. Join with us as we share our triple gift for the wrap up of our program launch.
In case you missed the original post about the Finding Home program, head over to catch up and even nominate someone you think is a fit. This chest of drawers above as originally seen in this post, was one of my favorite hand-painted pieces. It was chosen to be the first of, hopefully, many gifts to those who
Oh what fun it is to be with friends! Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday where my blogger gals and I get together to share our latest makeovers and creations with you to INSPIRE. What you see below is my focus of today’s post – you will see my friends’ posts in a bit. My good friend, Mandy, spotted this entire set on the curb and claimed them for me. Woot! Therefore, you are in for a dining set makeover.
I will be honest that when Mandy sent me the picture of the chairs that she had found asking me if I wanted them…I hesitated. Why? Well, if you’ve followed me for long, you know that I have undoubtedly sworn off
“‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” – the words of Jesus from Acts 20:35 that I have heard throughout my life and wholeheartedly agree with. Nothing can compare to the joy that can be found in seeing someone delight in sacrificial love. Have you ever had that blessing bestowed upon you? I may not have been blessed with riches, and that is beyond fine with me. However, one thing I’ve always asked God that I have enough that I can share with others. My friends, today is all about Finding Home.
Have you ever had a longing in your heart to do something to make a difference in a BIG way. I kind of eluded to my desire in my New Beginnings post I did a few weeks back. I have other dreams that can not be acted on as of yet as I see God still working things out. However, one heart-felt leading that I did get was to
There is rarely a time that I don’t go with my gut when I spy something in the thrift store that piques my interest. However, there are occasions where I ponder, debate, and end up walking away only to go back and get whatever it is I left behind. Such is the case with this time, except it’s not just one medicine cabinet, it’s two. ahem. (giveaway alert!)
Have you ever used the phrase, “Good things come to those who wait?” I may have reminded my kids of that every now and then, but I do use it for myself assuredly. It’s only been about 5 years since I first laid eyes on one of my biggest curbside finds ever – a front door with inserts. Today that arched window insert is the last of my hurrah. You can bet I’m doing a happy dance! (giveaway alert!)
The story all begins just over five years ago when my oldest son and I took off on our first major city spring cleanup adventure. We had no idea how much awesome goodness we would come home with, but this
Ooh…do I have some fun for you today! You know I love a good furniture makeover, but when I get to share the fun with you, it’s even better. Check out this cutie below that spoke to my heart the minute I saw it. eep! Looks like it’s time for an updated bookcase makeover, right? (giveaway alert!)
