It’s Themed Furniture Makeover Day!  This month’s theme is decoupage, and I’m no stranger to updating furniture with some pretty paper and Mod Podge.  ;)  Here’s my decoupage desk (be sure to scroll all the way down to see my friends’ projects too): This was a commissioned project, and I was thrilled when my client [...]

Shabby Chic Chair Makeover

Can I tell you a secret?  I’m not really a fan of the term “shabby chic.”  I’m not exactly sure why, but I usually prefer “vintage,” “romantic,” or any other similar descriptive words.  But honestly when this chair makeover was finished it just screamed “shabby chic chair” to me.  It’s so pretty and girly and [...]

French-Themed Printable Art

It’s no secret that I love anything French, and when I wanted some quick French-inspired art recently I whipped some up and put it in a picture frame.  I took a sheet of 12×12 scrapbook paper and cut it to 8.5×11 and then printed the image, then I cut a little off each side to [...]

26 Gorgeous Grey Projects

Grey (or is it gray?) might be considered a boring color by many, but I love it.  It’s a neutral that goes with almost anything, and just a smidge away from silver which is so luxurious!  I created a board for Gorgeous Gray projects over at Hometalk and I’m sharing a few of my favorites [...]

Treasure Hunting 4

It’s time for another installment of Treasure Hunting, aka “The good stuff I’ve found at yard sales and thrift stores lately.”  Some of these items I will redo, and some will go straight to my booth.  And I usually end up keeping a few things for myself (for awhile anyway).  ;) I fell in love [...]

Turquoise French Script Table Makeover

Hi friends, today I have a bright and fun table makeover to share with you!  This vintage table started out very brown and neglected.  (And unfortunately it sat in my garage for over a year before it got its new look- but it was worth the wait!) First, it got a major color boost with Valspar [...]

Weathered Bench Makeover with Chalk Paint

I don’t do a lot of really distressed/chippy/weathered makeovers, but this bench spoke to me and told me that’s what it needed.  Yes it did.  ;)  I didn’t see it just as a country-style bench, but aged and weathered from sitting on a grand wraparound porch somewhere in a distant time. The look was fairly [...]

School starts next week here!  One of my boys is super excited and has been counting down the days… the other, not so much.  (Sigh)  Are your kids excited or nervous about school?  One thing that can help ease their minds is a personalized lunch and note in their lunchbox.  Lucky for me (and you!) [...]

Has this happened to you ?  You go to Goodwill and spot the cutest comfy dress.  The pattern and colors catch your eye, the size looks perfect, and so you buy it – already thinking of all the places you’ll wear it.  You rush home, rip the price tag off, and before you even pull the [...]
