Easy Side Table Makeover

Thanks for all the love for our new floors!! Literally we smile every time we open the front door :). As we were clearing out the room of furniture in order to start the project, we decided that a few pieces would not be coming back in the room, and a few things would be moving around. I am really loving the new arrangement, but there were a few empty places. This wall for instance, is where the dresser used to sit. I had thought maybe a console table here. But, since I wasn’t really in a hurry to spend any more money, I decided to bring in this bench from our garage. It came with our kitchen table and chairs and we are no longer using it there. I actually really liked it here!

DIY Abstract Art

Let me just start this post by saying I am not a professional artist by any stretch of the imagination! I know you are never supposed to say things like that as a writer because it discredits yourself and such, but I say that so that you will know that if I can do it, YOU can do it!! So, anyways, now that we have that out of the way. I recently found a piece of art at Hobby Lobby that I loved, and I thought it would be fun to try and recreate. So, I snapped a pic right there in the aisle, to save for one day when I felt artsy. Here was that inspiration piece.

Backyard Spruce-Up

I had big plans this spring to get our backyard landscape looking better. But, God had other plans. We got hit with tons and tons (or what felt like tons and tons) of rain in the months of May and June. If you follow along with stories on Instagram, you might remember that I started the project way back when, before all the rain, and then much of what we had done had to be re-done because of all the rain. Ugh! Anywho! It’s finished (well 99% finished)!

Updated Thrift Store Candlesticks

I haven’t blogged about a thrift store update in a while! I got these candlesticks several months ago and they have been sitting in my garage. I had always intended on painting them, but I had just not gotten around to it yet. But, when I started re-styling our built-ins, I found the perfect place for them. They just weren’t the perfect color…at all.
