I found this well loved step stool at the thrift store and I had to buy it. My mom's birthday is coming up and we had run across one of these before when we were together. I has saw it at a local flea market and bought it. She saw it and said she needed one too but there wasn't a second one to be found. I'm going to up-cycle this stool for my mom's birthday!

I have never attempted a do it yourself project, but wanted something bright & original for our beach house. Found mathching 3 bar stools at a thrift store that were in the need of a little TLC, & created these bright one of a kind bar stools for a total of $35
Grab a run down vintage dresser and give it a whole new lease on life with some Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint and some IOD Grainery Decor Stamps.
A few years ago, we bought my husband’s childhood home. We’ve been working our way room by room renovating and Dre modeling our house into a home. We have a 15 foot wide stone fireplace in our living room. The fireplace was dark, gray, and dirty looking. Even after cleaning the stone with TSP, it still looked dull, worn and dirty. I had mentioned to my husband that I would like to paint the stone. He objected. Then, one day he says, “You know, if you want to paint the stone fireplace, I’d be okay with that.” It took me two seconds to jump on that project.

It must have been July when my brother first showed up on my doorstep with a huge pile of these fantastic interior wood shutters. I immediately knew that I wanted to make a headboard. The only problem was, I didn't need a headboard.
Don't despair if you don't have shutters, an old paneled wood door will give a similar look.

Do you love the Restoration Hardware tables that have that beautiful gray (driftwood-like) weathered wood? Me too. But, I can’t justify spending thousands of dollars on their furniture. Instead, I found a Craig’s List pedestal table that had the right shape and size for our kitchen. It was a cherry veneer finish, but after some paint you’d never know!
I know some bloggers or painters who name their pieces. I’m not usually the naming kind, but I feel like this ‘lil gal needs a name. Maybe if I tell you her story, you could help me choose a name for her.She first came to my home after I purchased another cabinet which now holds all my Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint product on display. The owner was moving house and had been trying to sell this dresser as well as the cabinet I had just purchased. I wasn’t looking for a dresser, and the price she was wanting was not in my budget, so I politely said, “No, thank you,” and went on my way with the original cabinet I bought from her. I later received a phone call from the lady saying, “You know, I really like what you are doing, with the furniture you’re restoring, and this piece was special to me, but I have no room for it in my new home. I want you to have it.”
I live in a small 2 bedroom home and with that being said I took the smaller bedroom and made a walk in closet so I always needed somewhere for my grand- Munchkins to sleep when they come over. .. and I always wanted a Country Cottage!
When my boyfriend's son moved into our house, his one request was the he wanted an awesome Minecraft room. So, an awesome Minecraft room he was given. The first step in making a little boy's dream bedroom is to find the perfect bed--but what if you can't find the perfect bed? Then, make one. We made this DIY Fort Bed and customized it with every single detail that we wanted. It came out better than we could have ever imagined.
"You make a better door than a window." It's something that may have been heard around here once or twice. Trash talk. When you've got siblings, it's kind of a given I suppose. Truth is, we do a lot of trash talking here.
Two for one DIY's for you guys. Both are from the Flea Market. Anthropologie, was my inspiration for creating both of these awesome hacks. The first DIY is a ''Inspirational Quote Globe'' the second is a Evidence Cabinet makeover.
After seeing alot of other people doing this online, we decided to try our hand at it. We had planned on using 3/8" plywood but after looking at what was offered at the time at the local Home Depot, we chose 3/4 inch 7ply plywood. We got the sheets home and ran it through the table saw to 6 inch wide planks. We sanded the planks to give a beveled edge to them, then cleaned off the dust for staining.After we had several of the boards dry after staining, we took them into the bedroom to put down. We used "Liquid Nails" on the back of each board and tacked each one down with 18 guage 1.5" nails. After all the boards were nailed down, we used a pole and pad to apply the polyurathane. We let it dry for 12 hours before applying the second coat. We then let that "cure" for 4 days before moving furniture on it.We really like how it turned out and are planning on doing the rest of the rooms like this.
