There is nothing like the cool weather of fall to get me motivated to paint everything in sight. And this lamp base was no exception. I had saved it from the garage sale we had months ago but knew it would need a makeover if it was to stay in my house. I did not like that faux gold at all! Today I'm going to show you how to paint a lamp base to look like stone.
Here I am another week gone by that I am not working on the bedroom furniture. Instead this week I am going to share a quick makeover that I had wanted to do on this little side table. Please ignore the mess in the photo. Tatou, our puppy thinks the living room is his playground.
I tried to sell this table at the garage sale we had last month but no luck. So instead of donating it I decided to give this old table a new look with stencils.
It is my favorite time of the month, the International Bloggers Club Challenge. We are a group of friends from all over the world who get together every month to share our projects and discuss how things are done in our countries. Last time we shared projects that were made using wire. And the month before it was projects for gardening.
This month we are going to work with rocks or in my case pebbles. The beaches in my area in Greece are not full of sand but full of pebbles instead. So when I think of pebbles I think of the beach. I am going to use pebbles to inspire my love of the beach.
To see what my friends have made this month scroll down to the bottom of this post.
Some of you may know that we've had a new addition to our household. Actually you should all know since I've been showing off my Mother's Day gift every chance I get. It's a Labrador puppy and we have named him Tatou.
Yes Tatou has taken over our lives and our home. It is littered with puppy toys and leashes, schedules and you name it. Things were all over the place till I remembered that I had a piece of plywood and decided to do some housecleaning.
It was time to take matters into my DIY hands and create a command center for my dog! I never in a million years expected to be doing a project like this. Haha!
Last week I shared the reveal of my girls' room with you. But I have a confession, even when a room is finished, there is always room for improvement. In this case we needed a chair for the computer desk, because that ottoman that my girl was using was just not cutting it. I needed to find a better solution pronto- that poor ottoman was getting squashed.
After a quick trip to the basement I found not one but four of these chairs. Well I only needed one, but thought I should redo two of them. Because you never know... And so I ended up getting two unique makeovers from one type of chair.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
