Garden Tic Tac Toe

Hi guys! Guess what - it's not a furniture post! Believe it or not, I'm a little crafty too and have missed the simple crafts that I used to enjoy.

Here we are headed into another beautiful weekend in Texas! We have been sprucing up our yard, planting more trees and shrubs and tending to our new garden! All of these spring activities inspired me to work on this little craft.

Garden Tic Tac Toe! To see it in full view please read along...I hope it inspires you too!

Farmhouse Table Makeover and My Favorite Local Farmhouse

Welcome back to my favorite day of the month: Themed Furniture Makeover Day. I have to admit, I have nothing in my home that resembles "farmhouse" so to try to come up with a farmhouse makeover kind of stumped me at first. Upon brainstorming along my way to dropping off kiddos at school I came to the realization that I drive by some beautiful little farmhouses every single day and decided to share one of my favorites with you.

The home comes with a little bit of history...

Stenciled Dresser for Themed Furniture Makeover Day!

Hi Friends!

You know that thing called "life" that gets in the way of our fun little hobbies? Well life has been busy lately for us but great, I cannot complain! I am so glad to get back to painting and no better time than to dive into it again for our Themed Furniture Makeover Day!  This month our DIY Furniture friends are teaming up to share our furniture "Inspired by Chocolate"!

Hmmm...I decided to share this awesome dresser that MyLove dug out of the trash (On Valentine's Day, none the less) and brought home and surprised me. Yep, he knows me well.  He also knows that he better throw in some flowers and chocolates too, which he did!  So let's start with the pitiful before, shall we?...

Bergere Chair Painted Upholstery with General Finishes Chalk Style Paint

Hi friends. Have you ever painted fabric?  I have not, but have been reading up on painting upholstery and stalking other bloggers' pages to see their results and I have to say that I am amazed at their transformations.

This month I am joining in on the Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest hosted by General Finishes Paint Company. Our theme is "A Fresh Start".  When Mom and Dad gifted this piece to me I thought it would be the perfect candidate...Grandma's Bergere Chair!
