Amazingly Chippy Dresser with Old Fashioned Milk Paint

Didn’t this dresser turn out amazingly chippy?! The paint used was provided by the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company, the my high opinions of it are all my own. I really do love milk paint! I know many people who love milk paint and use it regularly, and I always wondered if that would be me….and […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Rustic Sign

I’ve been loving rustic signs! …I wanted one really bad! Note: The paint and Varathane used for this sign were provided by Rust-Oleum but all opinions are my own. PROGRESS: To date, we’ve painted the walls, added trim to the window, completed a countertop transformation, added a tile backsplash, painted the cabinet knobs, installed a […]

Girl’s Bedroom Inspiration

Source ….The girl’s room. The room that has never gotten ANYWHERE since we’ve lived here. OK, that’s not true….maybe it just feels like that. I get that this isn’t the best “before pic”. In fact, this bedroom used to actually be a kitchen! The house was a duplex when we moved in and this room […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Cabinet Knobs

You’ve been hearing me complain about my kitchen and express my excitement for the kitchen makeover. The picture above is what I began with.

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 […]

Peacock Headboards

Are you a fan of Boho? It’s everywhere in the world of design right now. I have not been a huge fan of Bohemian style in the past, but I’m currently crushing on a lot of popular pieces that are considered to be “Boho”. One being vintage Peacock Headboards! I found this one on Craigslist […]

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 […]
