Hey y'all! It's Lori! So, we have lived in our house for a little over a year but my office still wasn't finished! We DIY'ed the shiplap wall & the built-in bookcases but I still felt it wasn't complete. I needed a desk! I was on the hunt for the perfect desk... nowhere to be found! Then, I realized... Darryl & I could make this! I drew out what my vision was and my hubby said he could do it. In the video below, I show the whole transformation of my office!
We recently did a three room makeover by painting and adding wainscoting. It REALLY made such a difference in our house and we’ve been LOVING the facelift! What I didn’t show you, was the BIG nook in our family room that we left out of our makeover! Beware…. It’s pretty ugly.
A new front door is often times not within budget your you'll be saving for a little while to purchase one. Instead, try giving your front door a brand new pop of color by painting it. It will instantly change the look of the entrance of your home and make you feel like you have a brand new door. Here's a guide on how you can paint your front door this weekend.
Have ever wanted to build a piece of furniture with reclaimed wood? Then priced out the cost of reclaimed wood? No THANK YOU! I am going to show you how to make a potion for aging new wood. Guess WHAT? You can do it for way cheaper than buying reclaimed wood, roughly around $10.00! This post is pretty short and to the point because well....it's sooo super easy!
So my 10 yr old son loves Star Wars. He's a 80's -90's boy born in Y2k era. He's getting to the point where he really needs his a space where he can close his door and concentrate on his homework. He's distracted too easily and it doesn't help when he has a younger brother who doesn't have near as much homework and generally enjoys bugging his older brother when he's bored.
So my husband rescued this old desk at a local Auction. He got it for $90. I was pretty amazed at his find and said I believed we could do something with it. At that point, I just didn't know what!
So it sat in the Garage collecting even more spiders and dust and stacks of other stuff that doesn't need to be in a garage. Fast forward 6 months!...
This is the before picture of the desk my father-in-law refinished for my daughter's Christmas present this year. She chose the colors.
Using exotic wood veneer and chalk paint, I turn a vintage yawner of a desk into a sleek stunner in black, blond and brown.
These are the before pictures of this project. We finished this beautiful Secretary Desk, with a sexy little black lace finish. We created an entirely new finish with Lace and Wood Icing Textura PasteNotice the attached embellishments and the damaged veneer on the drawer front. These kind of challenges are what makes Textura Paste the best choice for repairs and creating unique textured finishes. It is the most durable and color accepting product on today's market.
I bet you have at least one license plate hanging around somewhere. Once you start to make gifts it becomes a habit. And it starts to become expected. So what can you get that car enthusiast guy? Yup, it’s birthday time for my ‘cars-and-everything-about-cars’ son. How appropriate is it that this license plate is from the vehicle he spent most of his childhood in… oh the memories…
Decorating for Christmas can get a little expensive. Using supplies for Christmas’s past, I managed to make a mini Christmas tree from faux garland that turned out cute as a button for my son’s room. This easy DIY project took less than an hour from start to finish and was incredibly cheap.
