A Refinished Dining Set

I haven’t refinished or painted a furniture piece in a long time, it seems like. The weather was so nice last week so I decided to take advantage of the “good painting” weather and tackle this big project. The chairs are spray painted with Rustoleum 2X’s Cover Spray Paint – in Fossil. The top was…

Breakfast Nook

Do you have one area in your house that serves as a “drop zone” for EVERYTHING? This is ours. No matter how hard I try to make my kids use their desks for homework or install conveniently located hooks for coats and backpacks – it all ends up right here either way. If you see…

Cottage Style Dining Set in White and Grey

I just finished this cute little dining set. I fell in love with it at first sight, although it was an orange tone stained wood, I knew a little paint would make it just darling! Look at the table base. It matches the shape of the three chairs. Isn’t that a sweet style? The chairs…

Recovering Dining Chairs

Hello there! I don’t know about you but I am done with this winter weather. Our internet and cable went out last week while the kids were out of school b/c of the snow. It forced us to find other things to do. We survived and I got something done that has been hanging over…

Make a Wood Table Runner

You have seen wooden table runners, right? I love the rustic look of them and how narrow they can be. One of the best features is that the display on top of it can be removed all at once instead of one by one if you like to display more than one item in the…

Ebony & Fossil Dining Table

This dining set was really pretty when I got it but a little too red of a wood for my taste so I painted  all the chairs and legs of the table with Rust-Oleum 2X’s cover in Fossil. It’s a spray paint. I stripped the table top and sanded it really good. Even without stain…

Fresh Breakfast Nook

I needed a fresh change in our breakfast nook. We get afternoon sun here so our mornings can be pretty dark. I painted the walls all white. Here is a look at the BEFORE… Last fall we had burlap curtains and blue walls (wall color already here when we moved in). I put the burlap…
