Furniture Refinishing for Beginners| Refinishing an Antique Coffee Table

Furniture Refinishing for Beginners Tips, tricks, and what I learned by refinishing an antique coffee table. It’s been years since I tackled a furniture refinishing project, but when I spotted an antique coffee table at a thrift store, it had to come home with me! It has a crack and some pretty bad stains on the top. The $40 price tag was steep, but I still wanted it. My husband tried to talk me out of it, but I was {Read More}

The Farmhouse End Table That Almost Didn’t Have a Happy Ending

This is the story of an end table. It’s the story of an end table that tried to get the better of me.       But it didn’t know who it was messing with. Let me back up a bit though. I spotted this  little magazine table at the thrift store.  I wasn’t looking for one, and didn’t really need it, so I walked away and looked at other things. Then I realized it was half-price furniture day, so instead {Read More}

Black and White Farmhouse Kitchen Update

    I decided last week that we absolutely positively needed a new kitchen table. Not only did we need it, we needed it before Thanksgiving. My poor husband.  As soon as I said that, he knew any plans of relaxing over the weekend had just flown out the window. Let’s take a little walk down kitchen table memory lane, and you’ll see why he’s starting to hate the words “kitchen table.”

Homemade Gifts and 80’s Wooden Bin Makeover

I just got home from New Mexico and haven’t worked on any new projects yet, so I thought I’d share a few homemade gifts that my mom and I have given over the years.  We don’t make as many handmade gifts as we used to – simply because all of our houses are maxed out with decor, but those used to be the only kind of gifts we gave.   I’ve also got a quick makeover of a  1980’s  potato bin that {Read More}

Happily Ever After Mini Dresser Makeover + New Quilt Block Stencil

I think all the best stories start with “once upon a time” and end with “happily ever after, and I have a good one for you! First, let’s meet the damsel in distress… I found this small dresser at a thrift store with a big “FREE” sign taped to the top. I’m a sucker for pitiful pieces like this, so I couldn’t just leave it sitting there. The drawers were broken, but I figured that even if the dresser couldn’t be saved, at least I {Read More}

Painting, Pallet Wood and a Farmhouse Accent Table

Have you ever had something that was just begging for a makeover, but you needed some time to decide whether it needed painting, or decoupaging, or glittering? So you thought, and thought, and thought about it…      for two years? Please tell me you sometimes have to think that long too. Well, this is the story of a little table that finally got the makeover it waited two whole years to get.

The Farmer in the Dell and a Farmhouse Cabinet

Do you remember the old children’s song, The Farmer in the Dell”, how the farmer takes a wife and the wife takes the child and the child takes the cow, and so on, until you get to the cheese, and the cheese stands alone? Well, for whatever totally random reason, writing this post reminded me of that poem, because one thing led to another and another and another.  At the end, you’ll see what “stands alone”, like the cheese did {Read More}

Apple Inspired Chair Makeover

If you reach back in your memory bank, you may recall a sweet little chair that I gave a makeover last year.  I really did love it, but the other day I started craving some apple inspired color in my house, so I made over that sweet little chair again!  That’s the nice thing about paint – you can change your mind on a whim and have a whole new look in no time.

KISS: Easy Rustic Bench Makeover in Just 3 Steps!

I’ve been thinking I need to do a weekly KISS project (keep it simple stupid).  It’s a good reminder for me that not every project needs to have 20 steps to complete, and challenges me to keep projects as simple as possible. Last week when I brought home a bunch of bargains from a thrift store grand re-opening, one of my purchases was this  rustic bench. It’s super sturdy, has great wood, and I knew it wouldn’t take much effort to give {Read More}
