Amanda @ Mommy is Coocoo is Taking over My Blog! {Some Favorite Projects}

Hello, I am Amanda and I blog at mommy is coocoo.

I am thrilled to be guest posting on Curb Alert!  Tami and I e-met last year and bonded over our love of big trash day finds. (Tami’s so coocoo she even gave me her phone number!)

My blog is all about fun!  Whether you are laughing about the realities of marriage and motherhood or being inspired to make your every day surroundings lovely, regardless of your budget. Today I am going to share some of my most popular projects with you.  I hope my projects inspire you!

my master bathroom – this was our families first major renovation!
I love doors!  I mounted this 5 panel door on to the wall in Pearl’s Bathroom and now it functions as a towel rack.

I bought two identical coffee tables at Habitat for Humanity for $12.50.  See what the ugly boring coffee tables looked like before


Which coffee table do you like best?
I love fabric! My embroidery hoop wall art  is one of my favorite things in my home.  I feel happy every time I look at it.  It’s an inexpensive way to make a boring wall beautiful.  

Vintage Glider

I bought this vintage metal glider when I was shopping at a craft co-op.
Read about the transformation here.

 Ever wondered how to glaze painted furniture? 
  See my Peacock Blue Table  and detailed how to glaze tutorial.
my new favorite color combination – goes along with the painted antique dresser



 Reupholstered Sofa

 Check out the UGLY sofa before picture here

Thank you for allowing me to share today Tami!  This coocoo momma couldn’t be more grateful.  If you’d like to see more of my projects or learn more about the whole coocoo family visit me at mommy is coocoo


I am so glad to call Amanda my friend, I just love visiting her blog.  Somehow reading through her posts always makes me feel more normal in my own coocoo world smile!
Did you see the cool American Flag made out of a pallet that Amanda shared last week?  Be sure and scroll back through last week’s posts and take a look!

Thanks again Amanda for agreeing to Takeover My Blog!
