Glossy Sewing Table Makeover

This post is sponsored by DecoArt. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. See my full disclosure policy here. I’ll be honest, I’m not usually a fan of a glossy finish on furniture. I prefer more of a matte finish and that’s typically what I stick to for my makeovers. But when DecoArt sent me some of their new Americana Decor Maxx Gloss paint, I was excited to give it a try. First I needed a piece to try it… Read more »

After stalking Craigslist for a… Read more »

Modern & Vintage Office Inspiration

1 :: 2 :: 3 :: 4 :: 5 :: 6 :: 7 :: 8 :: 9 :: 10 :: 11 My work space has been a sorry little situation for a while now. When we were in our old apartment, I just had a desk in the corner of our living room that I got from a garage sale.
