Mid Century Modern Corner Table Makeover

Ah it feels good to share a new piece of furniture with you! As I mentioned last week, things just weren’t going my way and I took a little break from posting. This is the table that I would have shared on Thursday for Themed Furniture Makeover Day. The theme was Small Tables and this guy fit the bill perfectly. I’ve shared it on Facebook and in my What’s on My Porch series. Here’s a little refresher of what it… Read more »


Did ya miss me? I know it’s been a bit quiet over here this past week. I had all intentions of posting but life just got in the way. I was pretty bummed I missed out on Themed Furniture Makeover Day yesterday, because I HATE backing out of things. I started working on my piece for it, and things just kept going wrong. I really debated sharing it, even if it wasn’t completely finished, but I would rather take the… Read more »

To Live a Creative Life We Must Lose Our Fear of Being Wrong

You know when you read a quote and it couldn’t more accurately describe the way you’re feeling and you want to hang it up on every wall in your house? Only me? Ok, well that happened to me the other day when I was looking for a quote to hang in the middle of my Lattice Craft Organizer I made for this month’s DIY Challenge. I googled “creative quotes” and this one was the first one that caught my eye…. Read more »


I’m not gonna lie, this month’s DIY Challenge snuck up on me. I was so focused on working on my Mint Buffet that I didn’t even have time to think about what I was going to make! And the theme this month is Trash to Treasure which is basically everything I’ve ever done. I really wanted to do a piece of furniture, but I just didn’t have the time. So last Friday, I had to take the hubs to work… Read more »

DIY Gift Wrap Art with Gold Foil Letters

Oh Monday, you never get any easier. Weekends really should be 3 days, don’t you think? I got crispy fried at the hubby’s baseball games, where unfortunately their season came to an end It’s always hard to watch them lose, especially when he puts his heart and soul into coaching. But it just wasn’t in the cards for them this year. Now I’m sure you recognize today’s project from my Mint and Floral Buffet that I posted last week. I’m… Read more »

Be Present Free Printable

TGIF friends! I wasn’t sure if I was going to get you guys a freebie this week or not; I was working like crazy to get that Mint Buffet finished. Which by the way, thank you all for the sweet words about it! It’s one of my absolute favs and I’m glad you guys share the same feelings <3 I was so focused on that piece that I fell a little behind on preparing for others, so I’ve got lots… Read more »

Chalky Finish Mint and Floral Buffet

THIS POST IS SPONSORED BY DECOART. ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN I’m so excited to finally be sharing this makeover with you guys! This buffet has only been sitting on my porch since December…woops. I was just waiting for it to speak to me 😉 I’m teaming up with DecoArt on this one, and if you’ve never used their chalky finish paint, you’re missing out. I used the color Refreshing, which definitely speaks for itself. It’s like a breath of… Read more »

Dare to Fail - Lisa Mann Dirkes Print

Happy Friday everyone! I seriously can’t believe that today is my 50th week of Friday’s Fab Freebie. I can still remember the first one I made over a year ago and am proud and impressed with myself for keeping up with them. With that being said, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be cutting back a bit. I’m not sure how much, maybe just to every other week, maybe less. I’m just going to see how things go!… Read more »

Distressed Scandinavian Pink Side Table

I knew it wouldn’t be long before I used this gorgeous color again! I fell in love with it as soon as I opened the can and used it on this little frenchy I posted about a month or so ago. This was also the perfect color for this table because I donated it for silent auction at a Gala to raise money for breast cancer. If you’ve been around for a while, you might remember that I did this… Read more »

I shared it on Facebook when I picked it up a couple weeks ago, and I just love… Read more »

Pottery Barn Knock-Off File Cabinet

It’s time for another Themed Furniture Makeover Day! One of my favorite days of the month where I team up with some super talented bloggy friends and we each create a piece of furniture based on a certain theme. This month was definitely a bit challenging: Pottery Barn Knock-Off. I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever been in a Pottery Barn. I’ve browsed their catalog and swooned over all the gorgeous things they create, but I had no idea what my… Read more »
