My Vintage Coffee Table Will Do! Shopping My Own Home

I went to a few thrift stores today and also back to Home Goods to try and find a round, glass, coffee table for my living room.  After my rug purchase, I’m in the midst of changing it all around (surprise!) and want a new table for the room.  However, I had no luck today in either the thrift stores or Home Goods. more here!

A Bedroom Set Before and After   I am out today thrifting and hoping to find a few good pieces to transform. Honestly, they are becoming few and far between.  I would love to find something along the lines of this bedroom set that I worked on last year.  I used Annie Sloan Duck Egg with gold highlights.  I’m sharing this project again for those that may have not seen it!  Wish me luck today at the stores and I hope to find a great piece to transform! more here!

Favorite Find Monday: Changing Table for a Nursery Makeover

For those of you in the US, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I spent it with family and had 26 over for a huge Thanksgiving dinner.  It was a ton of work but I am pleased to say that it turned out really well.  I feel that all of the prep and planning really paid off this year.  My turkey was a big success and we all had a fantastic time.  The only downside was that the Redskins lost but hey, we are used to that around here 😉 more here!

Whitewashed Farmhouse Table Before and After

Whitewashed Farmhouse Table

I believe you remember the farmhouse table that was my favorite find a few weeks ago?

After a failed attempt at removing the shellac, I tried again, and again, and – well, you get the idea.  It was a time consuming process.  For the leaves, I used a tip from a reader and wrapped a plastic bag around them after applying the Citristrip in order to keep the product wet and not let it dry out. Honestly, it didn’t help all that much.  The shellac came off but again it took a few applications.  This tabletop has been a ton of work, folks. more here!
