I love this time of year and enjoy decorating my front porch with the changing seasons. I am just about finished for the Summer season and thought I would share some of my favorites. Rather than a standard wreath on the front door, I went with this grapevine ( I think it’s grapevine) that […]
I have always loved this image from Graphics Fairy and thought it would fit perfectly on this wood tray. I gave it a wash of old white and used the modge podge method to transfer the graphic. I love how it looks next to my statue that I picked up in Cape Cod. I am […]
I am loving all the old trunks that you see everywhere in all the home decorating catalogs. I was lucky enough to have one in my basement but neglected to take a before pic. It was in decent shape but needed a pick me up. It was black and pretty chipped. I gave it a […]
I’ve had a few days off from my day job and have been working on several projects. Unfortunately, I neglected to take a before shot of this roadside find, but it was light maple covered and I do mean covered from top to bottom in stickers! It made me laugh because my daughter Amanda did […]
I am starting to get a little addicted to Craigslist and I totally blame my dad for this as he sells rabbits and chickens, which I list for him and of course I have to peruse the furniture section at the same time! I found this teacart for a steal! Of course it was in […]
Unfortunately I forgot to take a before picture but this breadbox was outdated. It was in good shape though, nothing a little Annie Sloan and graphic from my favorite Graphic Fairy couldn’t fix. I used a blender pen to transfer the graphic and was surprised at how easy it was. Of course I aged it […]
This rocking chair holds a lot of great memories for me. When I found out I was pregnant with my first child I bought this rocker for $20 at an antique store. I waited until I knew if I was having a boy or a girl to paint it. When I found out it was […]
I am really excited about this hutch. It was a $40 Craigslist find. I used Annie Sloan Old White followed by clear and dark wax. The bottom two pics show the before. I added decorative molding on top and still need to pick up a peg that is missing.
This was my first Annie Sloan piece and I have to say I understand what all the fuss is about! It really is that good. This piece was originally painted pink for my daughters room when she was a baby. It took two coats and went on like butter! I then sanded lightly and used […]
I decided to make some burlap placemats with the leftover curtain material. I used stazon-on ink to stamp the cute little Easter bunny and to get longer use, I stamped flowers on the other side!
