Letting Go of Furniture, When It Just Doesn’t Fit

I came to a realization this past weekend. That I have a hard time letting go of furniture pieces that we bought with our hard earned money. You know, not the cheap thrifty finds that we find at garage sales or thrift stores, but the “real” furniture that we bought at a furniture store. The […]

I’ll Be Playing With This Today…

Some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Not to be confused with chalk board paint, because they are both very different things. :) I’ve never used it before, but decided to buy some from a local distributor the other day and try it out.  Hey, if what it claims is true about no priming necessary, no sanding, […]

A Cute Little $5 Bench

I found this bench at the thrift store for $5.  Can you believe that??  I thought it was so adorable, but my husband, ummm notsomuch.  He seriously wanted to put it by the curb for trash pick up.  Shame on him! And I’m sorry, this has to probably be one of the worst “before” photos […]

My Prized Possessions…Hutch and Buffet Redo

Painted Nightstands

Part of the master bedroom redo involved updating these nightstands.  These are actually living room end tables, but we use them as our nightstands.  They serve their purpose, they are pretty (now they are), and they were free!  I’ve actually had them many years. They came with my furniture set my mom bought for me […]
