Antique Hutch Makeover {with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint}

Antique Hutch Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

My husband loves browsing Craigslist, and lately it has been to my benefit! First, he found this old Tea Cart I made over and earlier this week he found this Antique Hutch for $100 (the former owner’s paid almost $300). We’ve been wanting to give the kid’s playroom (which is technically the dining room) a […]

Tea Cart Makeover {with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®}

Tea Cart Makeover with ASCP

My husband is always looking on Craigslist and he stumbled upon this adorable tea cart not too long ago and I immediately fell in love with it. We snagged it for $55 from a sweet couple looking to make more room for their grandchildren. This is what it looked like before: There’s a little handle […]

French Typography Trunk Makeover

French Typography Trunk Makeover {with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®}

We’ve been working on making our family room feel more “homey”. Last fall, we moved into base housing (Air Force) and the houses aren’t bad but they are very basic with white walls that are a bit drab so we added drapes and re-arranged (again), which left us needing and end table between our two […]

DIY {eat} Kitchen Wall Décor

DIY {eat} Kitchen Sign Wall Décor

The “before” version of this sign has been hanging in this spot for months. It used to be a Pier One mirror. Last year, I spray painted the framework grey and painted the mirror with chalkboard paint. It just didn’t finish well so it sat like that forever. I finally got around to re-finishing it […]

Enchanted Forest Fairytale Room

Enchanted Forest Fairytale Room

With moving like we do, I’ve really never taken the time to decorate my kids’ rooms. Now that they’re getting older, I really wanted them to have a space to call their own. Last week I showed you my 5 year old son’s room and this week it’s onto my 3 1/2 year old daughter’s Enchanted […]

Boy’s Room Mini-Makeover {with Chalk Paint Dresser}

Chalk Paint Dresser/Boy's Room Mini-Makeover

My son started Kindergarten this year so it was high-time I gave him a proper big boy room…on a budget! I spent around $50 to give his room a little overhaul. With moving as much as we do, our furniture gets scratched up like you wouldn’t believe so my main part of the makeover was […]

DIY Glittery Cups

These Pinspired cups were so fun and easy (albeit a bit messy thanks to all the glitter)! Even my 4 year old helped make them. They make a great homemade gift too (I’m thinking my kids teachers would love these)!  Just pop a Starbucks gift card inside. As far as I can tell, the original […]

{Family} Wine Bottle Art


This is a simple project with so many possibilities for colors and text.  It’s also a great way to re-use empty wine bottles (or a good excuse to drink some wine so you can craft with the empty bottle!). What You’ll Need: 6 empty wine bottles, cleaned and dried Chalkboard Paint (I used Martha Stewart […]

DIY Spider Web Vase

It was a windy, overcast, very “Fall-ish” day when I took the pics of this project yesterday and the historic style of our new home certainly adds to the spooky factor of Halloween!  It looks like a long list of supplies but a lot of them are things most of you crafters should have on-hand […]

“Welcome” Chalkboard and Outdoor Tour

A week or so ago, I showed you a simple project I did to turn a mirror into a chalkboard (as well as a peek into my new craft room).  I ultimately decided to hang it outside with a “Welcome” message. I wanted the outdoor space to have a cozy “indoor” room feel to it so […]
