Big & Bold Fabric Art

Hello friends! When I was trying to come up with inexpensive art for my house, I wanted some thing really big for my kitchen. I have a tendency to be commitment-phobic with home decor, so this budget friendly project was perfect!

Built-In and Fireplace Makeover

Hello friends! When I moved into my house years ago, I was surrounded by yellow-oak cabinets, circa 1986. It was so sad. After a couple years of listening to my parents tell me "you can't paint wood, you can't paint brick..", I did what any independent, stubborn daughter would do, and I painted it all! I needed it to look brighter and happier, and feel lighter. Mission accomplished!

Greek Key Side Table Makeover

Hello friends! Years ago, I found a table with great lines, but I really did not like the paint finish. So I bought it with the intentions of painting it someday. Fast forward a couple years and I was making over my master bedroom ( here's the BEFORE) for the One Room Challenge. I needed another side table, and this fit the small space between my bed and wall.

Emerald Green Hall Closet Makeover

I had a dark under-used cramped hall closet (that is far too shallow and wide to use like a traditional linen closet). It was never properly painted, and was still the flat builder grade paint and bare shelves from when the house was built in 1986. I wonder how I lived with it this way for this long!
