This year we are in the mindset of getting rid of what we don’t love, don’t use, or isn’t functional. Well a big one on my list for this category was our brown sofa and loveseat set that we have … Continue reading →
I am so excited to share this lighting hack. I was never a fan of the light we had in our entryway when we bought our house. It was very dated and not our style. Plus, it was a little low … Continue reading →
It was love at first sight. For me. My husband thought I was crazy I think. But I just knew. I knew a new coat of spray paint would make these vintage Hollywood Regency bamboo nesting tables stunners. I snagged … Continue reading →
It’s been another few weeks since I have blogged. We are making progress on our floors, but as a result our home is very un-done. The lack of baseboards, damaged trim, and lots of dust have made it a place … Continue reading →
Like I mentioned in my last post (read HERE), we spent four and a half days in Philadelphia, the “City of Brotherly Love,” at the beginning of May. I was there for the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners in downtown … Continue reading →
I’ts been a while- unintentionally. I haven’t posted in a few weeks- it started with us going to Philadelphia at the beginning of May for a conference for my work (I’m a nurse practitioner). Great trip with lots of yummy food and historical sites.
Then when we got back I jumped into hyper-flooring-mode. I have plans for the outside (read HERE) and so the flooring needs. to. get. done. now. Thankfully Steven dominated the floors on Memorial Day and our kitchen and dining room is all but done now- our stove and fridge are back in place! Hooray! Only 2 rooms left and some lots of finishing touches.
After a lot of work on flooring, I realized I had been neglecting my booth at BrickCity Emporium. It’s been slow because of all the rain but it also just started looking stagnant. I hadn’t changed it up much in a while. I worked hard this weekend, passing the floors off to Steven and throwing myself into painting.
I made a bunch of chicken-wire frames, a message board, and some cool vintage prints.
I also transformed these stools (this is the before) with the plan to sell them… and then decided to keep them. Of course.
Tutorial and reveal coming soon!
I am also working on a custom dresser (in coral!) and can’t wait to get started on more furniture. The break from the booth was good for me to realize how much I truly enjoy it. I’m having a class this Saturday (May 30) at BrickCity Emporium! I will be teaching basic chalk paint skills and then students get to practice by painting their own rustic frame they get to keep! I can’t wait for this class. Plus, it’s only $30 and spots are still available- just call BrickCity if you are in the area.
I hope to be checking in again soon with more substantial posts. Make sure to follow me on Instagram HERE to see what I’m up to!
A repeat client wanted this great Bassett dresser updated for her son. A classic piece of furniture with a not-so-classic look. We decided on Pike Avenue since it is a great neutral. I used two coats of the paint and … Continue reading →
That’s right. The dresser I painted Barn Red for my Chalk Paint site has been repainted. A client at my retail space loved the dresser, but was looking for another color. She requested a grey-blue, more grey and darker than … Continue reading →
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. We headed to Texas this past weekend to visit with family and deliver furniture to a client. I shopped several estate sales and found some great vintage items! Check out my … Continue reading →
Less than a year ago I had never painted a piece of furniture black. If I remember rightly, the sofa table in ASCP Graphite was the first piece. And I fell in love. I knew that one of my own … Continue reading →
