I was tired of looking at the ugly plastic bin I’ve been using as a toy box, but I didn’t want to spend money on an actual toy box. I decided to just give the bin a little makeover. It just took some wrapping paper, burlap, rope and fence post caps to go from boring to cute and still functional.
Mid-Century is totally not my style ... at all. This Mid Century media cabinet with its clean and simple lines was begging me to be changed into a rustic farmhouse style. I could envision barn doors on the front and it being used as a perfect media center. Bam! So that’s what I did and here's how I did it ...
Well I got this set for free because it was in really bad shape. The rattan on the backs of the chairs was all torn up and the table top had really deep scratches. I really did not know how this was all going to turn out but I gave it a try.
Guys I have wanted to make a kitchen island of my very own for a long time. So when we were buying this house, it had the perfect space for the island I'd dreamt about forever.

Then I turned it into a beautiful work space for my kitchen!

Sunflowers convey warmth and symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity. They have a cheery sun-like appearance with their open faces framed by yellow petals, also known as “rays”. Who doesn’t feel instantly happy when they see a sunflower?
Hi, I'm Miranda. I love farmhouse decor and barn doors a lot and since they are in such a big trend lately I wanted to try putting one on a table. I bought this little side table and I thought it would be perfect except I didn't like the size of the walls. I felt like it needed to be about 6 inches taller all the way around. So I embarked on the mission to get that done. These are the tools I used. (Always Wear Safety Glasses and Gloves If needed when working with powertools. )The tools:Circular saw nail gundrill Jig Saw with a metal blade.a metal drill bit in six 3/8speed squaretape measure
Today, I am so excited to finally share a project that lil dude and I have been working on.
We have actually been slowly but surely giving his bedroom a makeover. We've repainted the walls, built an entertainment/gaming station, built a Lego table and several other decor items for the walls. But the biggest and most time consuming project thus far has been the headboard.
I recently saw a dresser that had been painted with silver metallic paint. This project was now on my radar! I found something even better for my purposes. I found a night stand on the auction site and was able to get it for just $6! It was a real mess! All corners were damaged and parts of the feet had broken off.I was really surprised to learn that this is not real wood. I really don't know what the top is made of. I just know it has multiple layers and they have come apart where it is damaged. The entire bottom is some kind of styrofoam. Who knew??
