    Another Furniture Transformation

    Happy Thursday, friends!! I’ve been so busy this week, but I did manage to refinish a dining room table. Here’s the before (pic from the Facebook listing)… And after some chalk paint, and a lot of sanding…. I painted the entire table white, started to distress it, and then realized that I wanted to sand most of the paint off the top of the table. If only I wouldn’t have put such a thick coat of paint on the top, there wouldn’t have been nearly are much sanding required. Live and learn! After I sanded, and sanded, I sealed the table. I used something that is new to me, lindseed…

    A celebration of summer

    Happy Tuesday, friends! As so many of you already know, summer is my favorite season!! When Amber, from Follow The Yellow Brick Home, invited me to participate in a summer blog hop, I was so excited!! When I think of summertime, the first thing that comes to mind is flowers!! Warm sunny days, working out in the garden, and lots of beautiful blooms! Beautiful blooms are exactly what I use to decorate for summer. I love to make arrangements, or just have single blooms in bud vases around my home. I adore fresh flowers! A few pictures of fresh flowers that I have had throughout my home this summer, so…

    Shelf stylin’

    Happy Monday, my friends!! How was your weekend? My seven year old had surgery, at the end of last week, recovery hasn’t been quite as smooth sailing as we thought it would be. So, our weekend consisted of a lot of laying around, book reading, movie watching, snuggling, etc. It’s always so hard to see my little ones in pain, but it’s also nice to slow down and spend these moments together! While he slept, the first afternoon after surgery, I spent a few moments playing with flowers from my garden, and styling this little bookcase that I recently got from the Facebook marketplace, for FREE!!!I immediately fell in love…

    Checking things off my checklist ~ project #4

    Happy Friday, friends!!! I am so excited to have completed yet another project from my list of nagging projects. We are down to just one more project on this list! Remember the little chandelier that I bought from the Facebook marketplace a few months ago… I was unsure of where I was going to put this little beauty, but I knew that I couldn’t pass it up, especially for just $10!! Then, last week, I came upon a light fixture that I LOVED and wanted to get to hang in my powder room, but, it was sold out! Which made me think of my little chandelier, and I instantly knew…

    Checking things off my checklist ~ project #3

    Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I worked on quite a few projects that I have been dragging my feet to finish, including my powder room. I mean, seriously, when did I start it? March!!! That’s real life though, some projects come together quickly, while others take so long! Let’s take a quick look at the before… You might be wondering , what the hold up was? The wallpaper went up quick and easy, but I measured wrong and had to order another roll, which was on back order, so it took quite a few weeks to receive it. Once I got it, the wallpaper was…
