Headboard turned chalkboard - revisited

This is just a quick updated look at my chalkboard that I made from a crib headboard a while ago.
Here is the link for the original tutorial



This was my porch decor for valentines day.

Shabby Nightstand



I finished this little gem this morning & can't get enough of it! It is just so cute and has so much character. So what if the drawer is missing and spindles are broken off. I LOVE IT. 


This is my new favorite paint color I don't know the name of it but I picked it up at restore for 2$ I think this color is really similar to Lucketts green milk paint from Miss mustard seed. 
PREP WORK: Light sanding and cleaning
PAINT: Latex,  3 coats 
FINISH: Cured for 1 week, distressed with sanding block and 1 coat of miss mustard seed wax.
I have never tried wax over latex painted furniture but it turned out beautiful and so smooth!! 


p.s. 
Let's pretend I haven't been gone for a year. We have been building our home for the past year and its just getting warm enough to paint.

Before and After: Stool turned side table

Hello everyone, this post is waaay over due! This stool has just been sitting in my garage with the vinyl just sitting on top waiting to be put on. When I finished it today I wanted to kick myself in the butt for not doing it sooner. Literally it took maybe two minutes... Yeah I'm lazy :)

Before and After: Free Dresser

Hi guys, Today I am really excited to show you this dresser re-do I did recently




I got this dresser from my mother in law for free. At first I thought it was pretty ugly and I didn't know how it was going to look... And now I can't believe I was even considering not doing it.
I really love the details on this dresser and I love that its not just a regular old plain dresser. 
I'm just going to jump into this now because there are a lot of pictures to show!!

Fall Decorating and Re decorating

Today I'm just doing a quick post of my fall entry table, mantle and a sneak peek of next weeks post.. I pretty much just decorate and then re decorate some more when I find more yard sale treasures :)  
Sorry I have been MIA lately, I am working on a few bigger projects and have been a little slower than I would like to be.

decorating for the holidays on a budget



I just wanted to talk to you guys about decorating on a budget. Especially with all the holidays coming up. 
when I hear people asking me how they can decorate and make everything look cute without all the money. I get super excited. It's all about finding pieces, mixing and matching and creating your own look. My goal is to look like I have a well thought out plan and design when really I go to yard sales and pick up pieces here and there, give them a little paint or burlap bow and wa lah!! Rod Works/ Tai Pan/ Pottery Barn look without their price tag. Here are a few recent yard sale finds that I wanted to share with you today.
