2nd Year Blogiversary & Desk GIVEAWAY!

Wahoo!! I’ve made to my 2nd year blogiversary and I want to thank YOU readers for all your love and support.  Without you I wouldn’t be here! Just wait until you see the gift I have for you!

Let me take a minute to reflect on my beginnings. It all began on Mother’s Day two years ago when I signed up for my blog, though didn’t actually start posting anything until the early part of the following June. I took most of May to learn, set things up, and create graphics. I was bleary eyed from all the code, but having a blast learning. As of last May I was new to being a mom of 6, had to run in high gear because I had medical bills to pay from being in the NICU with our babe, so off I went like a mad-woman painting and selling furniture in my shop. There were times we needed the money the next day and I was scrambling around trying to figure out how we were going to make the payment, and my latest piece would be listed and sell within a half hour. BAM! God is so good. He knew what we needed and when. Like when I finished this feed sack chair. It sold lightning fast and was a hit on the internet. Living Vintage Behind the Blogger Series with Prodigal Pieces I like to highlight some of my favorite pieces over the last year. One was an antique table makeover with my favorite color: Aqua An Antique Side Table Get an Aqua Makeover - My FAVORITE! by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces Read more

It’s makeover time! I am so excited to have had the opportunity to work with Hickory Hardware to recreate an Ikea Rast Dresser utilizing their wide assortment of pulls. Let me introduce you to my Ikea Rast Hack.

This is my first time ever laying hands on any Ikea furniture since the closest store is over an hour away. If you know me, then you know I typically deal with vintage/antique furniture. This was a new avenue and working with a new piece was fun. When I first laid eyes on the Rast dresser (retail $34.99) this is what I saw:

It’s a total blank slate, just ready for creativity. Fun! My mind instantly saw a vintage box camera. The dresser is boxy and perfect for some hand-painted goodness. Read more
