Coffee Table Turned Ottoman

A couple months ago I was at Habitat when I came across the most ugly bench. I knew, due to it’s size, it had originally been a coffee table. The cushioned table was SUPER sturdy and the cushion was thick and in great shape. So I brought it home for a quick paint and recover. […]

Upholstered Chair Makeover x2

~ Rust-Oleum has provided me with the spray paint and Varathane but all opinions are my own ~ I found these beautiful chairs for $5 each. Pretty fabric? [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 […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Adding a Backsplash {and tips for the first time tiler}

We’ve been doing a kitchen makeover [I’m ecstatic, because I REALLY didn’t like my kitchen]! Here’s what it looked like BEFORE [above]; this is after a new window and after tearing off the old backsplash (which was the same material as the countertop). PROGRESS: To date; we’ve painted walls, installed new window, built a frame […]

Jewelry Box Makeover…and new purpose

I found this lovely little wooden jewelry box… As you can see it needed a little TLC, a little love, and some updating. I wasn’t sure if I should paint it a fun, wild color. Or go with a neutral white…like most pieces, I go with white. It makes it so clean and fresh. I […]

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 […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Storyboard

Kitchen Story It’s been nearly 2 years since we purchased our home. I feel like we’ve been doing a great job putting our personal touch (on nearly every square inch) of the house; but now it’s time for the kitchen! Oh, the kitchen is the last big eye sore and I cannot wait! The counter […]

Dining Room Light Fixture Makeover {Stripping Down}

What do you do when you are on a tight budget but the light fixture (as-is) is just not cutting it? You start stripping it down… I’ve been looking for a good “before” picture of this light fixture; and I think this [picture above] is the best I’ve got (taken mid way through the Dining […]

A Holiday Dining Room Makeover ~ Room Reveal

The Dining Room Makeover is finally here…it’s been a long time coming (and just in time for the holidays)! The dining room was nearly complete when we decided to begin the Backyard Makeover…which turned the window into a door [and therefore creating more work in the dining room and delaying the reveal]. So lets recap… […]

Furniture Makeover with Velvet Finishes

This month the Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest™ sponsor was Velvet Finishes, a company you’ll definitely want to check out if you’ve been considering painting furniture! It was a good experience using their product line and I loved the results! (Velvet Finishes supplied me with all of the painting products for this post, but the opinions are 100% my own.) There are a lot of advantages […]
