Vintage Rocker Drab to Pop of Color Fab Makeover!

Victorian Yellow Bench

The RUSH SEAT VINTAGE ROCKER¬†has gone from seriously drab to seriously fab! ¬†I brought home the rocker last spring but alas, I don’t have any indoor or covered spot to place it. ¬†The weather really did a number on it and it was looking very sad. ¬†I felt guilty.

I used sandpaper to sand back all of the chipping paint and glue to fix the broken pieces of the seat. ¬†I then broke out Victorian Yellow Curb Appeal paint by DecoArt. ¬†It’s a new product that is meant for the outdoors. ¬†I thought the yellow would give it a fun, new vibe. ¬†Here it is now! more here!

Console Tables and Spring Changes

Living Room Spring Decor

I just finished the Easter Pink Console Table and decided to add it into my decor!  I have been looking for a narrow console table for my living room and this fits perfectly.  In the hope that spring is around the corner, I tidied up and switched the room around. Yes, a little spring cleaning!  I always put things away and bring things out when the seasons change. more here!

A Behr Wanderlust Teen Bedroom Reveal

Behr Wanderlust Teen Room

My daughter, Ella’s bedroom is all done in Behr Marquee Wanderlust! ¬†It’s a deep, beautiful color and perfect for a teen’s room. ¬†We paired it with deep purple and white. ¬†Her dresser is The Blush Dresser featured in the post (HERE). ¬†I found a great headboard on Craigslist for only $40 and it’s perfect. ¬†Both the little mirrored shelf and the wood frame with clips for photos are from HomeGoods. The mirror was given to me by a client and is vintage. The green velvet chair in the corner was featured HERE and is a thrift store redo. The curtains were also a thrift store purchase (HERE) and the little black nightstand was given to me by a neighbor. ¬†The large artwork is from Ikea and I couldn’t help myself and kept a little piece of the gold stenciled wall as “artwork” ūüôā more here!

Country Curtains Thrift Store Score

Country Curtains Thrift Store Score

I just finished painting half of Ella’s room in Behr’s Wanderlust and I LOVE the color! ¬†

I’m finishing up this week and can’t wait to share some pics of this gorgeous color! ¬†In the meantime, I’ve been on the lookout for some pretty lace curtains for her room. I wanted white to contrast against the deep hue. ¬†I was out looking the other day and I just have to share my thrift store score – ten panels of gorgeous lace panels from the store, Country Curtains! ¬†I have always loved their catalog and have purchased curtains from them before. ¬†This is how I know that they are quality and quite expensive curtains. Their lace panels cost between $40 to $90 per panel. When I found these at the thrift store (at $3.50 per panel) I snagged them all up! ¬†I only needed four panels for Ella’s room but have added the extra panels to my hall and soon into my living room for a summer, easy breezy look. more here!

Behr Marquee Wanderlust

Behr Wanderlust

I have to admit, I love the name of this paint РBehr Marquee Wanderlust.

I wonder who thinks of the names for all of the different colors out there? ¬†They must have quite an imagination! ¬†Anyway, I am going to be busy painting my daughter’s room over the weekend in this deep, rich color. ¬†It is her choice and I am hoping that it won’t be too dark. ¬†She wants a moody, deep vibe for a 16 year old and this is it! more here!

New Keypad Front Door Lock and One-Way Screws?

Front Door Schlage Lock

We decided to change our front door lock and handle to a keyless entry system. ¬†Basically, it’s an electronic keypad instead of a standard key lock. ¬†It’s a great system when you have kids coming and going at different times of the day – no more lost keys!

My husband purchased a Schlage Keypad Deadbolt and door handle in the aged bronze finish.  He installed it without too much difficulty.  The only issue was using a drill bit to make the opening slightly larger for the new lock. more here!

HomeGoods Find and My Dog Needs a Blog

Living Room Gray Ottoman

I know that I painted my thrift store table white to add to my living room and I must say, I am happy that I did. ¬†I prefer it white. ¬†However, it is back in my family room because the other day I purchased a new piece for my home. ¬†This is a rarity and I must say, what with my new Safavieh rug and now my new ottoman/coffee table, I have gone on quite a spending spree. ¬†It is just that I saw it there – in HomeGoods – and it was such a great price ($150)…I just didn’t want to leave it. more here!

My Downton Abbey Lamp – Thrift Store Score

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. ¬†I fell ill with a super bad cold that is now making its way through our house. ¬†Sophie is in bed with it today and home from school. ¬†Anyway, before I came down with this nasty bug, I went out to the thrift store and I have been waiting to share my find with you all – my “new” lamp. more here!
