During one of my trash picking adventures last summer, I discovered this amazing vintage school desk sitting road side. I absolutely loved the shape of it and could not resist shoving it into my car to take home for a future project.
The weekend before last I ran over to an estate sale not far from us and scored big. For $100 I picked up a wooden sofa, matching chair and coffee table, a rocking chair and these two end tables. I am planning on refinishing the rocking chair and selling it on craig's list to try to recoup some of that $100 I spent. But the sofa, matching chair and coffee table I have big plans for on our deck. Meanwhile, I went to work on these two old end tables almost immediately thinking that we could really use them in our living room. On top of that, I've just been chomping at the bit to try the refinished top and painted base that I've been seeing online so much lately that I just love.
I needed a new rug for my outdoor patio but didn't want to spend too much so I found a rug at Home Depot for $17, applied a stencil pattern to it and sealed it with spray on poly. Not sure how it will hold up but our weather in South Texas is mild so I'm curious to see how it does! At this price, I may make another one for the holidays!

Hubby and I found this adorable vintage school desk when we were out antiquing. I couldn’t help but take it home and give it some love. This DIY will certainly take this sad little desk to the head of the class.
Sure, why not? My front porch needed an injection of color. Stat! So I used what I had on hand - burlap from Home Depot garden dept., spray paint., and a dollar store felt leaf.
This month's Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest is sponsored by General Finishes. They donated a quart of milk paint for my project. The winner of the contest gets a full case of General Finishes product in quarts or pints!
A friend scored on this curb find with a well traveled Army Field Desk. She requested that it match her office furniture, which was not Army green. This transformation is so chic!
I found a pair of night stands at the Goodwill, and while perfectly solid and usable, the style just wasn't my cup of tea. Nothing a little furniture cosmetic surgery and some milk paint couldn't fix.
I love the look of layered colors on furniture. But the process can be time consuming. To save a little time I decided to swirl my paint colors and brush it on in one coat.
I was browsing tile for absolutely no reason since I have no bathroom or kitchen renovations in my near future. I came across some tile, fell in love, and couldn’t get the pattern out of my head. I decided to put my design crush to good use and created a wall stencil out of the same pattern. Using a pieced of paper, a pencil and a paintbrush I created a stenciled wall in my entryway.
Oak cabinets....anyone else have oak cabinets and want something different?! My sister did, so I grabbed my paint brush and favorite General Finishes milk paints and went to town!
A client asked me for a pair of nightstands for her bedroom, which she described as a moroccan style. I was enthusiastic about it because I thought of brilliant colors and nice patterns.

I saw it at Goodwill priced next to nothing and I knew I could save it!
Using some gorgeous Peacock blue paint and a slate color for the top I transformed this from boring to Beautiful. To add a little more spice, I used silver paint and a stencil down the drawers and 3 different handles to give it that eclectic vintage feel. ...
After battling loss and infertility for three years, my husband and I are happy to announce that we have a baby girl arriving on Christmas Day! We wanted to do something really special for her nursery, and being dinosaur fanatics ourselves, we decided to share that love with her. This nursery was to be a fun, bold place for her to grow up in and further her imagination, so we fueled that by choosing a bold color scheme.
We live in a century home which really means....zero storage space !!! We found this gorgeous linen cabinet at a great deal and use it now to house towels in our bathroom ....I actually want people to see my bathroom now :)
