A while back the hubs and I were hitting garage sales one morning and we came across this dresser: A beautiful mid-century dresser in decent condition. The top is laminate, but the base is solid wood/veneer. We bought it for … Continue reading
I re-painted the console table that was in our dining room a few months ago. I had started paining it Sage Green during a chalk paint class and never finished it. See the bare legs? One night I decided to … Continue reading
I recently told you how I will be scaling back our home projects so that we can focus on paying off debt (read here). But I am not going to give up renewing our home. I just had to go … 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 s
ome 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.
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
