My $4.99 table...

This is what the top looked like Before we did any work to it. I did not get a picture of it on the base before we started to attack it...darn it! You can see whoever owned it prior had started to paint it. The base is black and scuffed in a few spots and perfect for the look I wanted so nothing was done to the base!

A little sanding from my assistant!

Some paint was added...

more paint was added...

and one more color was added...this is the final color. I love it!

Here is the base (lame picture its all I have right now)

I found this little table at the thrift store a couple months back and as soon as I spotted it I knew it was the perfect size and shape for our family room. All it needed was a little T.L.C! I had no idea how I wanted to re-do the top I just put some random colors of acrylic paint on it until I got the tones & colors that appealed to rhyme or reason just went with the flow and the flow ended up like this! I love how it turned out.

Mantle mirror getting a new look...

While I was outside painting the mirror (about an hr ago) for above the mantle I was so taken back by how beautiful the trees looked way above me in the mirrors reflection. You can see the teeny tiny buds sprouting and the bright blue sky. This made me stop and enjoy the beauty right in front of me.....the reflection took my breath away!

Trunk chest makeover...

This is how she looked BEFORE her makeover!

After two coats of primer.

Some dry brushing & some stenciling (613 is a badge number to someone special in our lives).

A place to put all those lap blankets (there is even some in the very bottom of this trunk) holds more than I thought . So much better than on the back of the couch. One more project completed!

Simply beautiful...

I received this beautiful orchid for my birthday a couple weeks ago. I love how the sun is setting and casting such a warm glow around this plant! 

Let the sickies leave...

I am so behind on my posts. I can honestly say our family has never been so sick for so long as of the past couple of months! Its the craziest just won't leave. Its one thing when it happens to you, when it happens to the little ones and they look at you with those eyes it just kills you! Definitely looking forward to Spring where we can leave all the sickies behind us!

Bunny love...


I found this little guy out thrifting awhile back for .69! I know someone made this in 1982 that's what the bottom of it says along with the name of the person who painted it. Thirty years later it finds a new home with a fresh new look. I was going to paint it white at first glad I stepped outside my norm to paint him this  fun metallic silver. I love how it turned out.    


                    Sharing a secret before school this morning!
