This was the first room we tackled when we bought our major fixer upper. Even before the kitchen! It was all simply done with IKEA pieces mixed with DIY table tops from hollow doors. Craft rooms don't need to be pricey!
I love a classic MCM piece and they usually look better in their original state but this poor piece needed love. It was so banged up and not real wood on top so I went for a painted look after failing at two-toned stained look.
Seriously scored an amazing piece for an unreal price at a garage sale. Poor guy had no idea what he had on his hands. It is in GREAT shape with a few minor scratches and some minor damage along the bottom. Thoughts on the best way to restore the piece? Or products to use? I hear great stuff about Howard Restore-a-Finish and Feed-N-Wax but I would love some feedback.
I have a SERIOUS obsession with Halloween. And the Haunted Mansion. It might be borderline a problem, but I don't care. My neighbors and family might give me the side eye for this.
I've been wanting a small console table for the back of our sofa since we got it. That little corner spot is my favorite to sit and I never have anywhere to put my coffee or wine. We have a MidCentury flair going on our in house so we decided to tackle this project by creating one ourselves.
We've been working on refinishing the exposed beam ceiling in our family room since we closed it 2010. It has been a slow and tedious project but we can finally share the results. If you have exposed beam ceilings, do not cover them up. It is back breaking work but so worth it in the end. What do you think?
We tackled our disastrous kitchen ourselves when we first moved in. It was a lot of work but the results were worth it. This isn't a large kitchen by any means but I like to think it is still stylish for the space. White cabinets, gray quartz counters, white subway tiled all pulled together with dark hardwood floors. Kitchen remodels are intimidating but can be done.
One thing I love about living in South Florida is orchids year round. We set up a hanging orchid garden under our large avocado tree. A simple but beautiful way to make our fence a little less boring.
