    Thrifted Treasure ~ June

    Hello, friends!! Happy Monday! Today, I am so excited to show y’all what I found for this month’s thrift store challenge! I found six charming metal feathers. When I picked them up, I was a little unsure of what I would do with them, but I always love adding unique pieces to my decor, and knew that I had to get them! The are the perfect combination of rust and gold. My kind of treasure!! With little holes at the top and bottom of each feather, I thought they would be perfect hung from a chandelier. I also found quite a few little glass jars for just $.10 each! I…

    My Favorite Curtains

    Hi, friends!! I hope you’re having a wonderful day, full of sunshine and happiness!! Yay for Friday!!! Because I always get asked about these darling curtains, which sold out shortly after I got them, I thought I would share some cute alternatives. I have had these curtains in my kitchen for quite a few months now, and absolutely LOVE them!! I love the effortless look they add to my kitchen window. Before I show you the cute curtains that I have found, I want to show you the stock photo for the curtains that I have in my kitchen… Don’t they look so much different in the stock photo than…

    Furniture Transformation ~ Coffee Table

    Happy Thursday, friends!! My little family vacation has almost come to an end. We get home on Sunday. We have been gone 2 1/2 weeks, which feels like such a looong time! While I absolutely love having a break from everyday life, love spending lots of uninterrupted time as a family, and of course, visiting amazing antique stores, it’s always nice to get back home and get back to a normal schedule. Am I totally weird for feeling that way? Anyway, this week, for my furniture transformation, I wanted to share with y’all this darling coffee table that I found on the Facebook marketplace. Here it is before…And after a…

    One of my favorite Antique Malls

    Happy Monday, friends!! I have been having so much fun hanging out back East with my family. One of my favorite things about being back here, is all of the great antique shops, flea markets, and auctions. One of my very favorite antique malls to visit, is called “Beaver Creek Antique Mall”, in Hagerstown, Md. I have been visiting this antique mall every summer for that past 15 years. There is never a time that I leave empty handed. There is ALWAYS something that I have to have! Here are a few pictures of one of my favorite booths this time… Every single thing in this booth is DARLING!!! Look…

    A Sweet Little Desk Transformation

    Happy Thursday, friends!! I hope you’re having a lovely week! I’m having such a great time, spending time with my family on our little family vacation! Last Thursday, I shared with y’all a dresser that I bought, painted, and sold. After writing that post, and mentioning that I wanted to be more deliberate in spending time doing something that I love, specifically being creative and painting/restoring furniture, I have decided to try to transform at least one piece of furniture every week. I briefly talked to my husband about my plans to start a little side gig, of painting and fixing up furniture to sell. I guess he liked my…

    Top Shelf Clearance Challenge ~ June

    Happy Monday, friends! I hope your weekend was full of fun, and lots of sun!! This month for my clearance challenge, I found a corbel at Hobby Lobby for 75% off! It ended up being less than $13!!It is so cute as is, but there was a paint brush just sitting on my kitchen counter, that I had just been using to paint something white, so I’m sure you can guess what happened next…I brushed the corbel with just a little white paint. My original thought was to put it on my mantel, but once I had it drying on my kitchen counter, I knew it would look perfect on…

    Dresser Transformation

    I’m so excited that tomorrow if Friday!! Summer break is officially in full swing here. My boys and I are loving the warm weather and being outside! This summer, I am making a more conscience effort to take a little time everyday to do something that I enjoy. While I LOVE being a mom and doing all the mom things, there are some other things that I love to do too. I think it’s so important to invest time into ourselves too! It’s hard to do, but is so worth it. Something that I really enjoy doing is giving new life to furniture. This week, I found this darling little…
