White Painted Antique Farmhouse Chair: Before + After

Once again, I'm amazed at what a little paint can do. This little antique painted chair looks like it's been this way for many years.  And the stencil just gives it that finishing touch. It goes perfect with my farmhouse bathroom and that is where it will stay!

Rustic Farmhouse Bar Stool Redo

I’ve had these bar stools for over a year now and have looked at them everyday thinking, “I should really redo those bar stools this weekend”. But something else always comes up and/or I’m just tired and would rather relax.  But right now I do believe I am “nesting” and everything I have been wanting to get done is in the works.  Including a DIY redo on the bar stools.

Electrical Wooden Spool DIY Patio Table

Thrifty, easy and cheap are a mainstay concept around here.  As long as it’s cheap and ends up looking cute, I’m all for it.  Take this patio table idea for example.  We had gotten a ton of these (for free) for our wedding three years ago. We kept a couple to use as outdoor tables.  And while leaving them au natural is awesome, I decided to stain the one we wanted to use for our backyard patio.

Farmhouse Kitchen Table

I cannot believe it’s been over two years since my last post. (WTH???) I swear I’ve been meaning to update this blog, it’s just that somehow time got away from me.  I do have some blog post material lined up from those two years… one being some kitchen updates (DIY of course!) and an overall house before and after.   

With the two year MIA stint came some new updates in our lives as well. I can’t wait to share what has been going on, but I will leave that to future posts! In the meantime, I have a cute little table redo to share with you.

Enjoy J

A Bedroom Update with Closet Curtains

I am STILL in the process of putting the finishing touches on our bedroom.  The last time I had posted about it, I had just added some really cheap window treatments to the windows.  They are holding up really well. You can read about that here...

Easy closet curtains

What I had been fighting with, was what I was going to use for closet doors.  When we moved in we took the doors off the closets because they were weird and bulky. (We actually used those doors for matching his and hers work-space in our garage.)

I've always loved the look of curtains on closets.  So I went with the same curtains I used on the windows.
