How to Repaint a Hutch

My next furniture project came from my dear friend, Lara. When I was a little girl, she was a teenager  who went to the same church as I did. I remember watching her and admiring her joy, beauty, compassion, and love for God. She was kind to me even though I’m sure back then most would have considered […]

Modern Tree Coffee Table

This was a really fun coffee table redesign! I wanted to push myself to try something new. We got this at a yard sale two summers ago. Sad, I know, that it sat for so long. Let’s get right to it, shall we? Here’s the before picture. I didn’t mind the color and I liked […]

Ladies and Gents Dressers – Part 2

This is part 2 of our Ladies and Gentleman’s dressers. This is the hardest dresser we’ve done so far, but definitely one of my favorite finished products. Thanks for pushing me to try new things, Macknenzie! This dresser was so ugly as you can see below; I really think you won’t believe it’s the same […]

Ladies and Gents Dresser Set – Part 1

For this dresser repurposing project, we had quite the task ahead of us. My friend from work, Mackenzie, asked us to design two dressers for her and her boyfriend. We had two non matching dressers that we wanted to make different, but still match enough to put in one room and have unity. I need […]

Pine Dresser DIY Refacing

This solid pine, antique dresser was so much fun to make over; my favorite project so far. We found this on craigslist and drove 40 minutes into the country to pick it up. The trip out there on a Sunday afternoon was an adventure. I had never been to the area, but found out John […]

For the Love of Teal! Chair

This is a really simple chair makeover that was a lot of fun! Here’s the before picture: My mom grabbed this chair at a yard sale for me last summer. I really like the style, but it needed a pop of color… yes, for the love of teal! The first thing that had to go […]

Antique Night Stand – Sanding and Glazing

This night stand was in rough shape when it was given to us. The nice part about getting a furniture piece for free is that I don’t feel so nervous about messing it up! This is my first attempt at sanding a piece and glazing it without John’s help! :) Here’s the before (I forgot […]

Half-Moon Hall Table Face Lift

Our good friend, Jo Ann,  (you will probably hear her name mentioned quite a bit) had this little hall table that was her grandmothers. It had a crack on one side and she wanted that fixed, to have us paint it a yellow color (we are all still debating on what color this actually is… […]
