restoring an antique steamer trunk

Antique Steamer Trunk Project

Do you know what an steamer trunk is? I had no idea what a steamer trunk was until a friend gave me his trunk to refinish. Honestly, this furniture flip was a little intimidating because I didn’t want to destroy the historical elements of this vintage piece. It took a little trial and error, but I learned a few tips and tricks on making over a steamer trunk.This trunk was in bad condition when I received it. Granted, it is over 100 years old, but the bottom was about destroyed.

small closet organization ideas with curtain rods

Small Closet Organization Ideas

After living in our beach cottage for four months I STILL haven’t organized our master closet. Last week, as I was walking down the isles of Target I got an idea of repurposing a curtain rod. When we moved into this home, we “downsized” about 1000 square feet from our old home. I have to say I was looking forward to losing a little of closet space so I could really work on organizing and purging. Let me show you the current state of our closet:

how to add an antique gold finish with rub n buff

Gold Finish With Rub N’ Buff

You know how trends go in and out? I’m not normally one who follows them but I love this new gold look! I’ve found a great gold spray paint that I’ve used to transform a few furniture pieces. The gold spray paint is cool, but I’ve found an even easier and more effective way to add a gold finish to anything! I stumbled upon this product at Hobby Lobby for only $5.99, so I figured I would give it a try.

World Map Art

I’ve always wanted a really neat piece of art work with a globe or world map. I decided to create my own rather than buy one new because I love to DIY of course. But even if I didn’t like to DIY, as long as you have a great world map stencil, anyone can do this. I'm going to share how I created my own world map art.

DIY Beach Cottage Mudroom

Is there a space in your home that you need to function properly? For me, this is a mudroom. That’s why I rely on a entryway or mudroom to organize all of our junk. After we moved to our new house I knew my first project needed to be project mudroom!AS ALWAYS, I NEEDED TO CREATE IT ON A BUDGET. SO WHEN I WAS WALKING THROUGH WALMART AND SAW A $59 SHELF THAT I COULD REPURPOSE AS A BENCH, THAT’S WHEN I KNEW I HAD MY MUDROOM PLAN.

diy rustic farmhouse beverage bar

Farmhouse Beverage Bar

I've always wanted a beverage bar and when we moved to our rustic beach cottage I finally got my opportunity to build it. There just so happened to be a bare wall across from the kitchen where I could move the fridge to create my DIY beverage bar.

diy wall planters for indoor decor

DIY Wall Planters for Indoor Decor

This home decor project started like most of my other projects, with a bare wall and a desire to DIY. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but a lot of my DIY craft inspiration comes from walking the isles at Lowes. Does this sound crazy? It might be but it’s the truth. Let me show you the inspiration I found from my walk down the plumbing isle.

DIY Fire Pit

When we bought our home it came with a random fire pit that looked like an unfinished project. It took me six months to figure it out but I finally did, so here we go; FIRE PIT WITH DIY PEA GRAVEL AND PAVERS.

how to age a pot with texture for an antique vintage look

How To Age a Pot With Texture for an Antique Vintage Look

I recently wrote a post about how to age a clay terra cotta pot with paint. To my dismay it didn’t create enough of the “antique vibe” I was looking for. I came to the conclusion that in order to really get that authentic “patina,” you need texture. After all, a true antique piece shows it’s age with more than just color, but texture and shape too. That’s when I knew I needed to find a way to age a pot with texture for an antique vintage look.
