Little Pink Rocking Chair

Last spring when I was wanting to prepare for baby and decorate her room but we hadn’t moved yet, I kept myself busy by packing of course, but also by trying to go ahead and find and DIY some things for her room.  Like this DIY chicken wire hair bow holder.    Another thing I […]

Painted Trim in the Living Room plus before to now pictures!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape® for IZEA.  All opinions are 100% mine. So what I didn’t show you in my last post on our paint and flooring update in the living room was that the baseboards weren’t painted.  From a distance it didn’t probably seem obvious but in person it […]

How to Update a Very Boring Powder Room

I am having so much fun going through old photos and sharing these with you from our old house.  I am itching to start sharing stuff from the new house though so I need to get through these so I can start sharing what I have been slowly (oh so slowly it seems with a […]

Navy blue painted dresser makeover

You might be a bit surprised at this post.  See I bought a dresser at a yard sale (that part is NOT surprising at all since I currently have like 5 dressers in my home that I bought at a yard sale or flea market )  BUT, I actually painted the dresser something other than […]

New headboard for the guest bedroom

So remember this metal headboard I bought at my parking lot yard sale few weeks ago?  I paid $20 for it plus he threw in bed rails too. Turns out it is from Wal-mart and is $49.84 on their site and doesn’t come with rails – so I think I got a pretty good deal! […]

Spray painted yard sale stool and metal décor piece for guest bedroom

I should have proclaimed this “Rustoleum spruces up my guest bedroom” week.   Instead of my normal Friday Faves + Frugal Finds post, I am going to to show you some recent yard sale finds I gave a spray paint makeover for my guest bedroom.  You can see the spray painted mirror I shared earlier this […]

Mirror, mirror on the wall–it’s time for your second spray paint makeover!

I feel like I am currently working and making over every room in my house right now.  Truth is I am just trying to finish and actually decorate most of our house. So you will be seeing lots of projects and a few rooms you have never seen before over the next several months. Toda’s […]

Sprucing up the outdoors for Spring with spray paint

With the arrival of spring, out comes the gardening gloves and shovels, the rake and broom, the pressure washer, and yes… the spray paint! We finally had some days without rain last week and I pretty much emptied my whole front porch onto the driveway and got to refreshing it all with some spray paint.  […]

Eat in kitchen makeover (+ how to easily add more height to your room)

I love looking back at before/after pictures and boy, do I have some good ones for you today! Here is our eat-in-kitchen maybe 2 years after we bought our house.  We hadn’t done much except paint when we first moved in. So at some point, probably about 5 years ago… I added a chair rail […]
