Old Door Turned Headboard!

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you may have seen this door the hubs and I were working on turning into a headboard.

I am so thankful my husband knows how to cut crown.  My head was spinning while I was watching him...everything is upside down and backwards to me.  

And here it is......Didn't it turn out beautifully!

Decorating with Chalk Paint

I love to decorate with chalk paint.  It is so easy to add color and it sticks to just about everything!  
I used it on my photo wall on the few blue picture frames just to add a bit of color and help carry your eyes through out the entire wall!

I painted the back of my hutch with chalk paint to accent my white dishes.

This candle holder used to be black, but I needed a few accessories to help bring in some color.
I tied some ribbon around it for some texture and now it is a great place for my birds nest!

And who doesn't love a painted mason jar.  The best part about Chalk Paint is I didn't have to prime these I just slopped 2 layers of paint on there and they are done just like that!

And last but not least my table that sits in my entry way!  I just love this table, it is a fun accent piece!

Chalk Paint is so fun to paint with, with most things there is not prep work.  When I am feeling like I need a change in my decor almost always the chalk paint comes out and something gets a fresh coat of paint!

All of the blue pieces are painted with Duck Egg by Annie Sloan!

Refinished Pedastal Table

This cute little table was sitting in my backyard rotting.  Patiently waiting for me to do something with it.  I had debated keeping it for myself and making it an outside table, but I seem to want to keep  everything lately, and my house just isn't big enough to fit all the furniture I want to keep.  I often tell my husband I need a bigger house to accommodate all of the furniture I want, and then he reminds me I will have to clean it......So I guess I will part with this cute little table.  And if you think she is ugly....just wait until you see the after....

Now do you see why I want to keep it.  That table looks so good in the "jungle" area of my yard.

Refinished Floral Nightstand

This cute nightstand is so charming, I mean look at all those curves!

I just love then I get pieces of furniture that really make me think.  They push me out of my comfort zone and require me to get a little creative.  This was the case with this nightstand, the old hardware was lion heads....EEK!!
 {I forgot to take a before picture of this piece, but I did record myself prepping this piece for paint.  The video tutorial will be available soon. }

Built in Shelf {the Easy Way} Recap!

I was looking through my stats and noticed my Built in Shelf {the Easy Way} Tutorial is one of my top hits to my blog!  I had forgotten about this tutorial, but I admit it was one of my favorite projects in my house!  

Here is the picture before:

  This little shelf sat in the corner for a long time looking sad and out of place and this corner was so awkward....until....

We built it in.  (tutorial here)  

To built this shelf in only took a few hours and the results are outstanding.  Instead of this being a sad shelf in the corner it is now a focal point to the room.

When I get antsy or bored I start rearranging.  Today this shelf got a facelift!

I pulled out the hot glue gun and several kinds of lace and ribbon and went to town.   I glue some pieces on, others I just tired around, but I love the texture and character it added to this shelf!
