Spring Green Fresh Flowers Stenciled Dresser

My mom returned home last week after visiting almost a month, but while she was here, we moved the bed from the guest house to my daughter’s old bedroom for her.  The guest house is insulated and we have a heater in it, but I didn’t want to worry about her walking outside and slipping on the ice to come in to the main house.  I’ll probably buy another bed to put in the guest house and continue to use {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.

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.
