A lifetime ago I started working on the bedroom makeover. And I know it is taking forever and I know that I've been working on other rooms as well but it seems I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
This shelf you see below is the last of the projects for the bedroom (all projects are listed on the bottom) before the small reveal... because it really is a small room - New York living folks! Today I'm sharing with you a simple makeover of a wall mounted shelf and a super easy way to add shimmer to that shelf.
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.
Today is one of the most exciting posts I've ever written. Can you hear me squealing in the background. Now this is something I don't do in real life, but since I'm on the internet I'll allow myself some liberties.
Today I am going to talk about - actually fangirl over - KariAnne of Thistlewood farms. She is one of my all time favorite bloggers and she does it all. She is a decorator, a DiYer and a photographer. But most of all KariAnne knows how to tell a story. Boy, can she tell a story! She can take the most mundane chore, like painting a door, and turn it into a monumental lesson in life. And with lots of chuckles to boot!
Now you are all probably wondering why I'm going on and on about KeriAnne. Obviously she inspires me! And I know I could never hope to reach her level of perfection. But I thought I would give it a humble try after seeing these chairs of hers.
After all chairs can be inspiring, right? This is the tale of the happy chairs.
This is a thing my son gave to me a few months ago. It had been sitting in the corner of one of the rooms - actually it was in the way and had to be moved from room to room - until this week.
This week I got so tired of moving it from one room to the next that I finally decided it was time to do something about it.
I also made sure to find out what it's called: A trough or as we know it a Vintage Book Rack. And this is how I up-cycled it and made it fun.
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.
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.
