Making a Laundry Room Work

Who loves dirty laundry? Not me! I have to get my laundry room in order before I can push through all of the loads of clothes and towels that come my way. But I have a quirky pet peeve about laundry rooms that I finally figured out. Doors! Every house I have had since having…

Welcome to Project Challenge where several bloggers and I use a pre-chosen material and show how we use them in different ways. This month our challenge was to use something with rust. My choice was to use this old rusty grate that I found at a flea market. I thought of using it as a…

Up-cycled Bistro Set for the Porch

Some of my favorite things about this house are all the outdoor living spaces. Today I am mostly sharing our front porch, which we really don’t use much, but I like our home to look cozy and inviting. Placing a small bistro set outside gives a warm and lived-in feeling when viewing the home from…

Design with Vintage Wooden Car Ramps

A couple of weeks ago Richmond, Virginia had a Vintage Home Market. It was amazing to see all the unique items each vendor brought in.  I don’t think I knew or ever thought about vintage car ramps before. Can you imagine having to make something out of wood that would be strong enough to hold…

This End Up Desk turned Rolling Island

This project was so fun to do. I refinish furniture pretty often so when I picked up this desk I had no idea what I was going to turn it into. I have finished a few pieces of furniture in this same brand called This End Up…it’s ironic because here is what I was inspired…

Chicken Wire & Screen Door Display

A few months ago we had some neighbors that were moving out of their house. On garbage day they put this old screen door out at the curb to be hauled away. After asking them if I could re purpose it I brought it home and it sat on the side of my house all…

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…

I found a few things at a moving sale last weekend. One old little relic I picked up that I just love is… …a copper belt buckle that is still attached to a portion of it’s original leather belt. I nailed it to a white painted piece of old wood. What else would you do…

Bedroom Night Stand & Lavender

A few weeks ago I covered the top of this table with concrete patch. (post HERE) The table top is bigger than the night stand I had next to my bed so I switched it out. I’ll just share a few pics of the bedroom. None of our furniture or bedding really match but I…

Grain Grinder Candle Sconce

While “pickin” at the Goodwill the other day I found this grain grinder. My kids made peanut butter and cashew butter with it that same day. It was fun (and messy). I actually love the metal and it attaches just right to my new/old desk top. This candle happens to fit inside it perfectly. The…

Upcycling Furniture {before and afters}

Don’t you love an easy transformation on old items? Paint has been my BFF this weekend! Let me show you some junk that I’ve “transformed”. I made that lattice table a few months ago but it sat in the shop for several weeks. That bothers me so I figured I would make it into a…
