Have you ever really wanted to take on a project but you’re kind of afraid so you just read about 5,376 tutorials on Pinterest and try to give yourself a pep talk? And then you finally go for it and you pull it off and you do a little happy dance every time you see said project? That’s exactly how I feel after I completed this painted and stained kitchen table makeover! Continue reading
Welcome to part three of an unintentional series, I’ve just gone a bit chalk paint crazy! Today is a dining chair I picked up at the Nashville Flea Market… in July. If you’re doing the math then yes it did sit in my garage for more than 6 months. I’m pretty well known for that. But I finally got around to sprucing this bad boy up!
To be honest I don’t feel like I’m old enough to be an adult. And while I’m still pretty new at adulting at the age of 24 I still feel like I’m somewhere around age 17. Like I feel as though I shouldn’t have my own home or go grocery shopping every week or get to stay out as late as I want. But that’s the other funny thing, I’m also a really old soul in that a good time on Friday night to me is getting a full 8 hours of sleep.
Maybe it’s because Valentine’s Day is this weekend, or maybe it’s because the more I think about what I want our home to look like the more I want what we put in it to hold meaning but lately I’ve been more sentimental than normal.
Can I just say I love chalk paint? It’s seriously the best thing ever! I’ve now officially painted 4 things in our house over the last 2 weekends with chalk paint and they’re usually only one day jobs because it dries so fast! I make my own and it doubles the amount of paint I get which is another win! So first up on the blog is a mirror!
This is diy is so simple I almost feel silly posting it. It’s also nothing new, I feel like you could consider this a #throwbackthursday of Pinterest. It seems like there is a handful of projects I specifically remember the first time I logged into Pinterest, this is definitely one of them. But sometimes it nice to do something simple and east yet still beautiful!
I have a love for quotes. I also have a love for displaying them in my house. And while I love to make printables I just don’t always have the time or energy to make one for every quote I happen to love. It’s just not practical. The solution to my problem? A diy faux framed chalkboard. I can easily swap out quotes as my heart pleases or tailor it to fit the current season or holiday!
\At random times I’ll get bit by the organization bug and one day it was for the pantry. But first a back story! Then we’ll get to the part of organizing your panty for cheap, sound good?
Because who doesn’t love a good back story?
I have strange love for coasters! There’s just so many options (especially the DIY kind!) and they add a little bit of décor to your table! I did have tile coasters that I made but Lady being a rambunctious pup typically knocks them off the table and I’m so afraid they’re going to break! So switched them out for these easy to make DIY simple twine coasters!
