Farmhouse Bar Stools ~ The Easy Way

I might just be a little bit giddy. I might just be a little bit over-the moon. Why? Because we are finally back at our kitchen remodel that we started in January of 2016…yes, almost 2 years ago!! If you follow me on social media, you’ve seen our trials, but the best place to catch up is here. Today, is Furniture Fixer Uppers day, and my dated stools are about to become farmhouse bar stools. See the end of the post for more fun from my friends!

It is finally summer and I am so excited!! Why? Because my cabin fever stent is over and my family and I can finally get into our back yard. I have been staring out my windows all winter scheming and planning new and improved ways to make it more hospitable. I’m also about making it easier to care for (can I get an amen?). Today is all about our forlorn fire pit. It has served us well over the last four years, but today is demo time. Follow along as we show you how to create your very own DIY fire pit. pssst…giveaway alert!!

Before we get started, I wanted to give you a bit of history on this fire pit. Four years ago I shared this original post detailing how blessed I was to be able to create it for JC on Father’s Day without spending a dime. All the materials were sourced from Read more

Thrifted Plant Stand Gets Farmhouse Chic Makeover

Do you ever find yourself walking through a garage sale or thrift store and spy something that you just can’t help feeling sorry for? Like, “Aww…poor thing, I must take you home and give you new life” kinda thing? That’s what happened to me when I saw this…let’s say “dated” to be nice, bamboo stand. I just had to give this thrifted plant stand a fresh new look. I want to show you how easy it can be to create the look you are after in your own home on a budget.

If you follow me on social media, you know that I have caused an injury to my right shoulder. It’s something that I knew would happen at some time or another because of all the factory and laborious jobs I’ve had with repetitive motions would catch up to me. I am taking it easy on it and researching my alternatives. Meanwhile, like the stubborn nut I am, …I’m using Read more

Spray Shelter ~ Miracles Do Happen

Every once in a while there will be an invention that comes about that makes us say, “How did I ever do without this?”. To me, tools are worth their weight in gold for they allow us to do all sorts of wonderful things. My latest addition to my arsenal is going to save my marriage (you know what I’m talkin’ about) and my sanity. Here is what my life was like without my new spray shelter.

Factory Finish with a Paint Sprayer

There are so many little things that delight my heart, truly. It can be as simple as my kids bringing me a sweet wildflower bouquet, a slice of homemade strawberry pie, or spending time in God’s word. Another one of my delights is sharing projects with you so I can empower you to try projects yourself. Who knows, maybe I’ll even help you learn something new. Today, I thought I would share a furniture makeover that will help you achieve a factory finish in a day. Sounds easy enough, right?

Dixie Dresser Before Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | www.prodigalpieces.com

This Mid Century Modern dresser (or credenza) was made by Dixie back in the Brady Bunch days. The Dixie line of furniture has stood the test of time and and still a coveted piece of furniture. This isn’t my first makeover of a Dixie piece, you see my French provincial set in this post.

I found this piece for today in almost mint condition, but somewhere along the line Read more

Rocker Found Curbside turned Black Beauty

I’m doing a happy dance because today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday! It’s a fun time when I get to join up with my bloggin’ gals to inspire you to see past the junk and find the treasure beneath a thrifted goodie or curbside find. My trashure piece, a Bentwood rocker, was found curbside while on my way home from a garage sale. Check out my haul…

Seems you can find these Bentwood rocking chairs unwanted everywhere. You'll want to snag one up the next time you see it since who knew this curbside find could look so good? by Prodigal Pieces www.prodigalpieces.com #prodigalpieces

Junky heaven, right? From the garage sale and only $10 later, I found some wood turnings, old rusty tools, salvaged rocking chair rockers, a vintage Read more

Why I Love My HomeRight Finish Max Paint Sprayer

There’s no denying that when you find something that makes your life easier and affords you more time for other tasks or pleasures in life, the first thing you want to do is tell others about it so they can benefit too. That, my friends, is what this post is all about. A few weeks ago I shared with you how much I adored my new toy, a paint sprayer called the HomeRight Finish Max , when I worked on this farmhouse dinette set (this post described using paint and poly).

Well, now that summer’s here and I’m able to be outside more doing my work, I’m having a blast (literally!) getting furniture done lickety-split. For instance, I’ve had this baby highchair needing a facelift, and if you’ve ever painted a chair before, you know how un-fun it is to paint spindles.

Ugh… you’re constantly checking for drips, incessantly brushing hoping for an even coat, right? All these reasons are exactly why I love my HomeRight sprayer. Yay!!

Farmhouse Table Makeover with HomeRight Sprayer

The best things in life are free, right? That’s how I got this table set…for FREE. Thank you Craigslist, and lady who tried to sell the table, but got so sick of it being in her garage that she gave it away. I’m feeling a farmhouse table makeover coming on. hee hee hee.

I’ve been there done that, so I felt for her. This set also wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my mother, who took her truck to go pick it up for a pregnant momma (ME).

That is how long I had this table set… for over a year, just like this desk. I knew that painting those spindles on those chairs would take F.O.R.E.V.E.R. and there was no way I was going to do it unless I had a paint sprayer.

Enter in my new toy… {dramatic music begins to play and commercial-man voice reads…}

“The HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer allows you to apply a professional-looking finish to your furniture and cabinets. The indoor rated air turbine powers the spraying of thin materials like varnishes and stains. The tight spray pattern of the Finish Max HVLP is ideal for finishing smaller, contoured surfaces like deck spindles, furniture and lattice.”

What’s HVLP you say? Just High-Volume-Low-Pressure, which translates to lots of goodness without much effort. As a gift to self, no one can deny that a paint sprayer is a good thing for someone who paints furniture, right? I read all the reviews (by the way, this entire post is my opinion and totally my own) and heard nothing but good stuff about how easy it is to clean and easy to use. Sold. Read more
