Spring is finally here and I have sprung into action trying to finish up the girl's bedroom. (You can see all of the bedroom makeovers at the end of this post.) My girls need as much storage as possible because the house doesn't have much in general. And more importantly they are girls, and girls need lots of storage!!
So when I spotted this lovely (shhh...my dad is a wealthy source of old neglected furniture) I instantly grabbed it and took it up to their room. You might even remember it when I shared the mirror makeover with you. Today I'm going to show you how I gave it a makeover just like Cinderella.
I am a coffee addict! There I've said it.
I've had all my coffee stuff hidden away in the cabinets but when I get up in the morning I really don't want to have to look around to find my coffee making stuff. Now I had seen lots of friends making coffee stations and coffee bars and I really liked this idea.
This is what my makeshift coffee area looked like... meh!
It was inexcusable for me to have this mess. I needed to make something pretty right away!
This project has been in the works for months. I believe I started on it in October of last year. And what I thought would be an easy job quickly spiraled into a disaster. But we shall take it from the top. This is the story of a mid-century modern china cabinet that has been in my family since the 1960's. I know because I was there.
I had to give this china cabinet a makeover not because I wanted to but because I had to! Read on!
Welcome to the 2017 Ornament Exchange & Blog Hop! This year, there are 47 amazing bloggers participating in the exchange. The rules of the challenge were simple: be partnered with a fellow blogger, create a handmade ornament for $15 or under, create a tutorial, and ship the ornament off to a new home!
My partner was Angela from Simply Beautiful By Angela. She has such a lovely fresh decorating style and she loves farmhouse. Her tree is usually farmhouse/rustic and done in neutral colors (brown, white, gray, silver, gold ). I too am a fan of farmhouse/rustic so I was looking forward to working on this project.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
Today I thought I'd just pop in and share a quick project with you all. You see I am always experimenting with my paint supplies and coming up with new to me ideas and projects.
This box was in my possession for many years. I used it to store beloved photos and cards. But when I was packing for the big move, I decided to give it as a gift. But not in that horrible condition.
You'll have to forgive me for the lack of photos but I was in such a hurry to finish the project and do the packing. As you may have guessed this project was done in Greece before the move. You can see that I was in such a rush I started painting it before I had a photo.
And so today I am sharing how to give an "old world" look to a plain box. And maybe even finish packing! ;)
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.
