Upholstered Chair Makeover x2

[sarcasm] I’ve REALLY wanted to do some upholstery lately and thought these would be a good project to get started with. I’ve never upholstered anything to this […]

How to Texture Drywall Yourself

The house we currently live in used to be a duplex. Over the past 4 yrs we’ve turned it back into it’s original 1904 single family shape.  This meant adding some walls back where they used to be. Because of this, we had a lot of drywall to finish up and almost everything upstairs needed […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Rustic Sign

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Countertops

Note: The Countertop Transformation Kit used for this makeover was provided by Rust-Oleum but all opinions are my own. Our countertops were ugly. And, to make it worse, they were made from the same Laminate that was in my parents house when I was growing up (so I know how old they were!) and apparently […]
