It was time for a change in our powder room, to brighten things up! After 10 years it was time to give this space a fresh new look. So my husband and I started the process of this, and we are so pleased with the outcome!

Goodwill Coffee Table

I love going into the Goodwill or Bible for missions and seeing what I can find to give it a new look. Sometimes you can walk through and see nothing, but this one morning I went in and found this coffee table for $15. I wasn't looking for my own personal use it was to refinish it and sell it. I liked the price and I also liked that it was solid wood.

This cabinet at one time was a honey colored pine Armoire that was used to hang clothes in it at one time. I never thought back then to take a before photo. It was with my husbands when we got married. This is going back about 9 years now when I had the idea to take a chance on redoing the outside first not even thinking about the inside.

What You Can Do to an Old Light Fixture With a Few Changes.

This fixture was in our home for about 8 years, we took it down and put it in the basement thinking I was not going to use it again. It sat there for over a year and then when I refinished my hutch in my foyer with the mirror the fixture that was there just didn't complement the area. I didn't want to spend money on a new light so I had this idea with this old light. I had to be sure it would work as the sockets on this fixture were for larger bulbs. So I first bought a few items to try something and I was so excited that my idea was going to work.
