Stenciled End Table

1-Stenciled End Table collage

I found this nice end table at the Goodwill store a few months ago.  The leg wobbled a bit when I found it, but I knew the screws just needed tightened and it definitely needed some paint for a fresh new look.  But, for only $4.97, how could I resist?! I knew that I wanted to try something different [...]

Fall Home Tour

1-Fall Home Tour

Surprisingly, I managed to decorate our house for Fall the day before it is actually Fall!  For your everyday person, the day before Fall is early to have your decorating done, but for a blogger it is late.  I was fortunate to have some time at home today to pull out all my fall decorations [...]

Chalk Paint Chair Makeover

Makeover an old thrift shop chair into a new pretty seat

I had found this lovely little chair at a local thrift shop earlier this summer.  I know the seat was ripped and a few worn spots in the frame, but there was nothing else wrong with this chair, it was a solid seat. First thing I did was remove the upholstered seat, which was just [...]

Wallternatives - hanging framed decals and shelves

This is a sponsored collaboration post with Wallternatives. I only advocate products or services I personally use or believe will be good for my readers. I’m always looking for ways to create my own wall art, because buying wall art is just really expensive!  Our house tends to have less wall hangings than most.  One reason [...]
