Folk Art Milk Paint Bench Refinish

Milk Paint Gossip Bench Refinish

I can’t resist sweet little vintage furniture pieces. My house is starting to look like an antique booth! A few weeks ago I found this darling little gossip bench, and I just fell in love. She was a little sad looking, with her chippy stain and dark green seat cover….

Pallet Sign Painting Party

Pallet Painting Party

One of my favorite things about living in California wasn’t the beach or the theme parks (though those things were awesome) – it was my group of crafty girlfriends! We would get together every few months for a “Pinterest Party” and hang out, eat lots of yummy food, and just craft…

Dining Room Makeover

Fall Pumpkin Decorating

Preserving Memories with HP Sprout

This post is sponsored by HP. I will confess to being a huge sentimentalist. I will save just about anything if it has a special memory attached to it. And while that’s no problem with vacation souvenirs or concert tickets, it is a little trickier with natural items. It’s our…
