if you know me well then you know I’m not very good with electronics… especially ones of the cleaning variety. I’m so terrible actually that Jeff doesn’t give me the chance to operate the washing machine or dish washer. I mean… I’ll take it because this gets me out of doing the dishes or laundry… So when I saw an ad for a new paint product on Instagram called Saltwash I figured – maaaaybe this is a type of washing I can get behind. Total slam dunk!
hey hey hey, it’s Sunday! I didn’t know if I’d get around to working on any projects this weekend since last week the my first week at my new job and I was feeling pretty exhausted… I laid in bed until about 11:30 yesterday morning before I decided to make my way out of bed and get movin’. I took on this super cute desk late yesterday afternoon and was able to finish it up late last night. Continue reading “glazin on em”
it’s Monday night, womp womp! Mondays are generally my least favorite day of the week. I don’t feel like I’m really into a good rhythm until at least Thursday, so I consider this a huge win to finish up a blog post for you guys this early in the week! I am cheating a little bit since this has been sitting in my basement and then my guest room for about a year or so now without any love. Continue reading “nice stems!”
good morning! I’ve had this dresser set for quite awhile now. I picked it up with the pink ombre desk from a lady who was liquidating her mother’s estate. Both were in OK shape but had some cracking in the veneer. Here’s a look at them in my shop: I spent awhile trying to decide … Continue reading copycattin’
two reveals in one day… this might be a record for me! This desk and chair combination is going to Jeff’s baby cousin, Sophia, as a Christmas gift from her parents, Kelly and Jason. I’ve had the pleasure of watching her grow up from a quiet toddler to a sweet, vivacious little girl. Sophia loves … Continue reading hello, sweet, beautiful girl!
hi friends, Happy Christmas Eve! Today’s post is a fun one as my handsome assistant, Looper, makes an appearance! While my pictures may always look calm and collected, it’s normally anything but that behind the scenes. What you don’t see is me frantically pushing the dogs out of the way or holding Looper in a … Continue reading ring ring… Looper calling
good morning everybody! Can you believe Christmas is just NINE days away? I can hardly believe it… I have done zero gift shopping so far, yikes! Between the big house move, a few unexpected issues and some custom jobs with holiday deadlines, I haven’t been able to really get into the holiday spirit. Bah humbug! No … Continue reading holiday wanderlust
Today’s post is a very special one. I’m sharing a piece that I just completed for my friend and soul sister, Alison Marie. She is hands down, bar none, a truly amazing human being. I can’t remember exactly when we met, but sometime in high school. In a time when girls have a hard time figuring … Continue reading a desk made for a doll
hey everybody! Today I’m bringing you a little bit of a cheat as you’ve already seen the after picture if you follow me on Instagram… but even if you do, you haven’t seen the before! I snatched this media console up from my co-worker, Jayne, after I creepily stalked it on one of the many … Continue reading mirror, mirror on the wall
It’s pedal to the metal today, ladies and gents! Today’s makeover reminds me of a super cool, classic corvette with racing stripes. It’s funny that I’m taking about the need for speed today as I’m laid up on the couch with some major ankle issues. Jeff has resorted to doing black magic on me with … Continue reading vroom vroom
