Rustic Barnwood Planter

Easy DIY Barnwood Hanging Planter

I have this huge blank wall in the room off my kitchen that I am slowly filling up with a fun farmer’s market style gallery wall. It’s technically supposed to be an eat-in kitchen, but we don’t want a table in there – it would be just a bit much….

Mid-Century Hutch Refinish

Mid-Century Hutch Refinish

Do you ever have one of those projects that takes infinitely longer than you think it will? For me, those are usually because I either don’t know what I’m doing and mess things up, or I procrastinate because it’s a big project and I think it will take a ton…

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

Retro Style Shutter Shelf

Vintage Style Cross Stitch Shelf

I am so excited about today’s project – for several reasons! You know I have a weakness for oversized cross stitch right? (If not, check out my Cross Stitch chair). Well I picked up this old shutter (I think that’s what it is??) at a Barn sale a few months…
