Upcycled Furniture 4/23/2013

By |April 24th, 2013|

I went with totally terrific teal for these projects.
I started with this beautiful little vanity.

It’s full of fun storage for all those girly must haves and I love those gorgeous legs. Brighening up the color was a must and then I lined the many drawers with fun and colorful paper.

Next […]

Upcycled Furniture 3/20/13

By |March 20th, 2013|

I had to take a break from particle board furniture and find a few pieces of solid wood to work on this week.
I started with this beautiful antique writing desk. I love the small size and the pull out work surface.

It’s perfect for today’s down sized spaces and a great place to […]

Upcycled Melamine Furniture 2/26/13

By |February 27th, 2013|

I know melamine furniture looks cheap and boring but it doesn’t have to. This weeks projects are all about upcycling those eye sores into pieces that you would be proud to show off. As long as they are functioning well why not make them pretty.

I started with these two Ikea melamine dressers, both […]

Upcycled Projects 2/13/13

By |February 13th, 2013|

I went a little stencil silly and color crazy with the latest upcycling projects.
The first was this beautiful antique dresser.

It was in very good shape except the missing mirror. After a quick shopping trip to my shed I found the perfect mirror in a frame that fit beautifully. I added a […]

Baby Ruby’s Room

By |January 23rd, 2013|

What is black and white, and red all over? Ruby’s room, of course! The was the next room we did in Cassie’s house. We definitely did some thinking outside the box for this room. Blue-grey walls were a must, even though we knew it was a girl. And a princess named […]

Upcycled and Repurposed Curb Side Finds 12/5/12

By |December 5th, 2012|

This old vanity was found on the curb by one of my favorite bloggers, Good One, Den and she passed it on to me to give it a new life. Keeping it a vanity was not an option because the mirror was missing and making it into a desk seemed so expected, so I […]

Upcycled Treasure Hunting Finds 11/02/12

By |November 2nd, 2012|

This weeks upcycling projects were a variety of styles.
First were these two mid century dressers. This is not my favorite style but I do appreciate their great quality.

These are made by Bassett and in very good condition but I thought they would look better with some color. I didn’t go too […]

Friday Finds 9/14/12

By |September 14th, 2012|

Scored some great finds today. Cassie missed out on the fun because of some lame excuse that she had to go to work…whatever. Buddy volunteered to go with me though. He knows how easily I get lost when I venture out on my own. The pieces I found were large and heavy so I […]

Upcyling Yard Sale Finds

By |September 12th, 2012|

This week has been about painting and upcyling a few yard sale pieces. This was my first experience with chalk paint. I made it by mixing 2 1/2 tbl. of Dap Plaster of Paris with 1 tbl. of water, then adding it to 1 cup of paint. I mixed it all in a disposable […]

Friday Finds 8/24/12

By |August 24th, 2012|

Trunks, Trunks, Trunks! Look at these great trunks we found, it seemed to be our theme for the day. It was our first treasure hunting day in the new truck, and we refused to come home until it was full. I let Cassie drive. She didn’t run over any yard salers, but […]
