Small Grey DryBrushed Accent Table

This little table has been in my family for a very long time. In fact for many years it was stored in a little old house in the country that my family used to visit many times when I was a child. Poor thing has been through quite a lot and was starting to really show its age. Rickety and almost broken, I am shocked it didn't make its way to the burn pile. If you look close enough you will notice that even the maiden adorning the leg has lost an arm. Who knows what happened to it along the way.

Fast forward a few decades it was revealed that my sister grabbed the table and has held on to it for years. She recently asked me if I could modernize it up a bit for her and of course I agreed.

Now it looks like a completely different table.

Navy SuperMoon Decoupaged Dresser

Hey there! Time is flying again and here we are smack dab in the start of a hot summer!

Today I am sharing this cute little dresser with you. A friend asked me to paint a dresser for her grand baby that was born last November on the night of the Super Moon. Okay, I can paint (furniture) but I don't consider myself an artistic painter so this is what I came up with.

Scroll down below, click further to see how I did it. So easy that you can do it too! Just don't tell anyone that you really didn't paint it-we'll keep that between you and me!

Refinished Lane Antique Cedar Chest

Well it's been awhile. No excuses for me, just living life and enjoying every moment. Still trying to fit in as much furniture re-purposing as I can while maintaining my sanity with 4 children. Luckily my husband is super supportive of this little hobby of mine and I feel blessed to be able to share it with others.

Recently I completed my grandmothers Lane Antique Cedar Chest. It had about ten coats of thick hard paint on it and I have to admit thought it might be a gonner after we made it to this point...

So glad I persevered and now it looks like this -

Child's Time Out Chair: TFMD

It's Themed Furniture Makeover Day! So excited, I tell ya! This month's theme is WORDS.

This was a fun little painting project, I sure wish I had thought about it when my kiddos were younger because it definitely was needed on many occasion! In fact, we used to have a Time Out Towel that evolved into the Time Out Spot and then the Time Out Corner. Fast forward ten years and a bit of Pinterest inspiration, search "Time Out Chairs", I came up with my own take of the perfect little Time Out Chair.

To see the crazy Before pic and how I painted the words and letters, stick around and read more. Also be sure and scroll down to the end of my post where my DIY Furniture Makeover Girls have added their projects as well. You don't want to miss it!

Outdoor Wedding Menu Signs: I Do BBQ

That's why when my friend asked me to make some signs for her upcoming daughter's wedding reception I said "I Do" and jumped at the chance!

Here is what we came up with for her "I Do BBQ" ...
