LePetit French Bakery Table

Hi there friends!  Remember a few days ago I showed you how I did that cute little French Bakery Stencil?  As promised, today I am sharing the cute LePetit French Bakery Table as part of the Monthly Themed Furniture Makeover Series!

Here is what I started with:

Lots of deep dents and scratches, shredded veneer, but with a little TLC and paint look at her now...

Le Petit French Bakery Stencil Tutorial

I love the look of hand-painted signs.  In fact I used to have a bunch of beautiful stenciled quotes throughout my home.   Those were all vinyl beauties that I ordered online and fit the bill for awhile, but deep down I longed for faux finishes and hand painted wording.  Husband had a different opinion but we won't get into that.

We have moved from that home with the quotes and I have been secretly missing the look, so decided it was about time to sprinkle a little bit of that same feeling in my new home. I have a confession to make though, I have never tried a painted stencil...until now!

Come see how I painted a Le Petit French Bakery inspiration while sharing how I did it!

Fun Gift Ideas for the Ant-Man Fanatic

Ant-Man, the Blockbuster Movie of the Summer.
Have you seen it?
Fun Gift Ideas for the Ant-Man Fanatic: Shopping made easy by Curb Alert!
My family did and absolutely cannot stop talking about it.  I have a feeling that kids of all ages, heck adults too, are going to be asking for a few Ant-Man inspired items this year on their wish list.

I know it's only September but trust me, Halloween and Christmas is going to arrive before you know it.  Let's get ahead of the game and look at some of the most popular items that may be hard to come by around the holidays...

Power Tool Challenge Team: Jigsaw!

Hello there friends!  It's been a super hot summer, up above the 100s for the past week over here and I think it has fried my brain!   Definitely not the kind of weather to permit working outdoors on furniture (which I love) so I took a bit of a furniture break and decided to join my friends this month in the Power Tool Challenge, Back to School Edition.

The Power Tool for this month is the Jigsaw!  Awesome, I love using a jigsaw and cannot wait to see what my Power Tool loving friends have come up with as well!

Luckily for this project I only had to spend about 15 minutes outdoors to get it started.  The rest was painted in my kitchen, in the nice cool air conditioning.  But here's the catch...

DIY Industrial Clothing Valet

Summer is going great with only one hitch - It's HOT!  The high humid temps have made it a bit more difficult to work out in our shop so my major furniture builds are going a bit slow these days.  Luckily this project took very little of my outdoor time to build, most of it completed indoors.

It all started with these...four casters, which we already had in the garage.

My oldest daughter needed a bit more hanging space for her clothing so this is the solution we came up with

American Flag Baby Crib Rails (A Red White and Blue Celebration!)

Hi Friends!  July 4th is just around the corner.  I decided it was about time to get a little bit in the patriotic spirit around here!

I like to purchase a few new plants for each holiday and of course these cute red Pentas are perfect!

Head over and see what I did with them and my little bit of repurposed patriotic decor!

Texas Star Headboard Bench

I apologize for being MIA the last few weeks.  School wrapped up and I have been trying to soak up as much family time as possible while in summer mode!

I did have a bit of time to squeeze in this next project though...another headboard bench.
I have only a few remaining beds that I purchased last summer from an amazing garage sale.  I paid a whopping 15 bucks for this one.

Last week I gave it an amazing Texas Patriotic Makeover, just in time to sell prior to the Fourth of July holiday.

"Bless Your Heart" Texas Headboard Bench

Bless Your Heart Texas.  You have been through so much lately.

So much rain

So much flooding

So much loss

So much sadness.

You have been on my mind. 

I cannot help it, I love Texas and cannot imagine

Rustic Solid Wood Dresser Makeover

Sanding, Refinishing, Painting Furniture takes time and during that time my mind tends to wander.  While working on my last makeover I had to stop myself many times from making a complete fool out of myself as I called my furniture piece by name, out loud.  What? you don't name your furniture?  Well after spending so much time with mine I tend to and this one is no exception.  I present to you a new Rustic Solid Wood Dresser...a.k.a. "The Boyfriend" Dresser!

Why "The Boyfriend" dresser?  Well my daughter went to Goodwill and brought home this piece...
