Grain Sack Striped Numbered Stacking Tables

Numbered- Stacking-Tables

It's Themed Furniture Thursday!! I always look forward to our monthly furniture group tour. It keeps me on my toes and helps me to remember to step out of my box.  This month's theme is Letters or Numbers. Now I have done a lot of projects that have had letters on them like my  Two Toned Coffee Table, French Stenciled TV Console, and my Parisian Painted Side Table . One thing I have never done is a project with numbers. My mom found these cute little stacking tables at an estate sale … [Read more...]

Plaster Painted China Hutch

Don't you just love Fall? The cool crisp air, the way the leaves turn beautiful colors, and warm yummy drinks you can enjoy in front of a fire? The only problem here is that even though it's the middle of October, it is still almost 90 degrees! So here we are still wearing flip flops, although the pool is closed people are still laying out, and the poor kids playing football and in the band are about to keel over from heat exhaustion. Here in Kansas, we don't usually get much of a Fall. We … [Read more...]

Pink Plaster Painted Vintage Chair

In the past, I would go to yard sales and see amazing upholstered vintage chairs, and I would pass them by. The fabric usually looked worn,  and I didn't want to dish out the money to have it reupholstered. Then a few months ago, I tried my hand at painting the actual fabric. It turned out great! So when my mom saw that a neighbor had left this outdated, peach number out on the curb, she scooped it up and brought it home for me to work a little magic on. … [Read more...]

Fabric Backed Console

Sweet-Cream-Plaster-Paint-Console

I found this bookshelf/cabinet-ish piece at a yard sale for $10. It had a veneer top and cheap paneling on the back. I painted the entire piece with Plaster Paint in Sweet Cream and distressed it. I then removed the back piece of paneling, sprayed it with spray adhesive, and laid a piece of fabric over it. I then laid a heavy piece of wood on top to hold it in place until the adhesive, and then I cut off any extra fabric. I then nailed the panel back in place. … [Read more...]

Vintage Shelf Makeover

Grey-Plaster-Painted-Vintage-Shelf

Hi guys! How was your weekend? Yesterday, as promised, I only worked for a few hours and then took the rest of the day off. We went and saw The Giver which was pretty good. There were a few things they didn't really explain at the end, but it was worth the price of admission. I even splurged and got popcorn. Topher thinks movie theater popcorn is the most disgusting stuff on the planet, and while I agree it is horrible for you, I think having it once a year won't kill you. I worked for … [Read more...]

Plaster Paint Vintage Mirror Makeover

Plaster-Painted-Vintage-Mirror

Happy Labor Day everyone!! I know many of you will be out at the pool or enjoying your last trip to the lake. Today, I have vowed to only work a total of 2 hours! Gasp! I know! I worked Saturday and Sunday, so I decided today I'm going to enjoy at least half of the day. I think the kid talked us into going to see If I Stay. She didn't have to twist my arm too much -- Topher, on the other hand, is not sharing our enthusiasm. Saturday we grilled out for my dad's birthday party and … [Read more...]
