Big Announcement!

Usually I spend my Saturdays hanging out with my family, hitting up a few yard sales, and working on my projects in the garage.  But this past Saturday was slightly different – I set up my first-ever booth space to sell my pieces in a local vintage/antique/artisan gallery!  My mom and I loaded up our […] Read more…

Vintage Desk Makeover

Blackened Mirror

My garage is currently filled with several partially completed “big” furniture projects.  Big = many of them have broken or damaged parts and need extra time and TLC to make them functional and pretty again.  I work on them a little each day but sometimes I’ll take a break and try to get a quick […] Read more…

Berry Blush Chair Makeover

Last weekend, you may remember that we went to visit my in-laws (I shared some photos of my mother-in-law’s Victorian cottage decor here).  Besides hanging out with the family, I made time for a little shopping.  Yes I’m guilty of visiting a few of my favorite retail stores that we don’t have by my house […] Read more…
