A Teal Headboard ....

I LOVE brightly colored headboard!  They are always so fun to use as a statement piece.
I am a little mad I forgot to take a before picture of this beauty.  She was quite an eye sore, there was a big faux wood oval in the center with some weird hand painted flowers!  You can imagine how happy I was when the oval popped right off!  And in its place I added this beautiful appliqué.




This appliqué made the headboard so much more elegant it had to have lace pillows to go with it! 
After all doesn't every bed need a few pillows?!


Luck would have it this paint color was in the Mistinted section, I love it when they make mistakes with pretty colors ;)  After the bed was all painted up I added the glaze and antiqued it to bring out all the fun details of this bed!!  





This bed is for sale, if you are interested send me an email or please see the Furniture For Sale Tab at the top of the page!!

A Geometrical Coffee Table Anyone?!

 My free time has been cut drastically since the arrive of Baby Brother, but I can't complain too much, because it is filled with many cuddles, smiles and of course a few of the other things too :) 

But the wheels in my head have been turning and itching to create.  What is it about a girl and her paint?  Man, I sure do miss it all of too often! 

I am so excited to show off this coffee table!
I have always had a thing for coffee tables, as they add a perfect touch of personality to any room.  And this coffee table is no exception, I mean look at those legs all french and cute.  And the oval top was just calling for a little personality so we took care of that!


I first painted everything turquoise and once it was dry I measured out how I wanted my design to look.  Once I had it sketched out I began to tape everywhere I wanted it to be turquoise.  Once it was all taped and measured I seal up my tape (tutorial here)  This makes for really nice straight lines!
I painted the remaining area cream once it was dry I pulled off the tape and......


TADA!!
We have ourselves a one of a kind beautiful table, perfect for any room!





This beauty is For Sale, Please see my Furniture For Sale Tab for all the details or send me an email

Baby Brother's Nursery!!

I can't even tell you how happy I am to have our little man here!  I unfortunately am sick the entire time I am pregnant, YUCK!!  So, to keep myself distracted I refinished/made most things in his nursery. 


 We added more moldings to the walls and I resprayed the entire room as my daughter managed to do a number on it.  


We hallowed out the window seat in this room for much needed added storage (tutorial here)



I made all of his bedding, the quilt is made from Blake Riley's Scoot line.
My husband even convinced me to learn how to baste and free motion quilt!  I am glad I did, I really enjoyed it!  (tutorial here)


I had the white shelf made a few years ago, and I added vintage water spicket to the bead board.  
The other toys I found various places, I figured since this is our first boy he would appreciate playing with something other than princesses!

I refinished the dresser, and replaced the top as well (full post here)


I made the signs above his crib out of left over wood in the garage and I hand painted each sign using graphite transfer paper (tutorial here)



All of the pillows were made for scraps left over from the quilt and bed skirt. 


This nursery was so fun to put together and yes it helped keep me sane while I was pregnant!!

Replacing the Top of Baby Brothers Dresser & a Peek into the Nursery!

Yes, I know this dresser is a sight for sore eyes, but there is hope!  
I love all the details around the sides and look at those cute legs!! 
(secretly I wished people would say that about my legs ;) )

A dresser this cute can't be left behind!


I was hoping I could rip off the top layer of veneer and find an beautiful piece of wood...but I wasn't so lucky.  After many wasted hours I finally gave in and took the entire top off!!  I had seen many people replace tops, and it seemed easy enough, I had just never done it before so I was a bit hesitant to jump right in!  

I was planning to use pine planks and set them close enough to each other to help close any gaps, UNTIL...I found this awesome product at Lowes.

It is a pine panel that is already jointed together for you, all you have to do it cut it down to size.

After the top was cut down to size, I used Dark Walnut Stain by Minwax to stain the pine as I wanted it dark.  Once the stain dried I applied glue to the dresser and underside of the new top and placed it on the dresser.  Once it was in place I used my finish nailer to nail all 4 corners to give it added strength! 


And TADA.....His dresser is done and in use!  And yes we made sure to fill it up!!


I love how rich the top is against the green dresser!  

I sprayed the entire dresser and then I used a tintable oil based glaze.  Glazing is one of my favorite parts of refinishing furniture it can make or break any piece.  When done right glaze adds so much depth to a piece, it helps accent all the details and brings so much character!






I am so happy with how this dresser turned out, it is just perfect for Baby Brothers nursery!
