I love a good Mid Century piece! Take a look at how I finished this dresser using Wise Owl One Hour Enamel in Jet Black. It is a classy furniture makeover!
I'm longing for simplicity... and wondering how can I make things easier on myself. Unloading and dispersing a large tote of Fall items throughout my house is not going on the "to do list" this year! I saw this Kraft paper style pumpkin from a few years ago sitting in the tote, and it spoke to me (this pumpkin is originally from Hobby Lobby). I loved the color and it felt clean and calm... so I pulled it out.
Fall is amazing, it's such a cozy season! Within days, as the weather cools off, we are ready to pull out our sweaters and buy all the pumpkin things! In years past, I have always felt the need to go out and buy MORE Fall decor, MORE plastic pumpkins, MORE wreaths! This year, I decided to say no to all of that. I pulled out my "Fall Decor" bin and said...ok... let's simplify here.
These vintage desks are SUPER cool, but it seems that people aren't using these smaller sized desks much these days. I decided to cut the center out of this desk and make them into nightstands, here's how they turned out...
Sometimes I wonder how I was lucky enough to scoop up THIS piece or THAT piece... I've found some good ones over the years of refinishing. I was browsing the furniture section of my local marketplace and saw that this beautiful Stanley had been sitting for awhile... I instantly fell in love with the hardware and the bun feet.
One of my favorite things about a furniture makeover is the before and after photos! I always wonder, how many people would just walk by this dresser in a thrift store, or get rid of it because it's old and they've just had it forever. What do you have in your home that could use a makeover?
At the end of every year when I’m cleaning up Christmas decor, I love to make gift tags out of the cards I received over the last month!!! They are always so sparkly and cute, perfect for next year’s gift bags!!!
Every year for my mom's December birthday we do some kind of Christmas-y craft. A couple years ago we made these adorable poinsettia gift toppers. They are easy to make, and really add a pop to your gifts under the tree.
Hoop wreaths are such a fun take on the traditional Christmas wreath. They can be displayed in many different ways, over shutters, above a bed, on windows, or even display multiple on a gallery wall!
