Jill’s Table

Need a special piece, but you can’t find just the right piece.  Right size but wrong color…  Its a problem, especially when you shop at thrift stores like I do.  How do you fix this problem?  I’m glad you asked…

Check out this little diamond in the rough.  With a couple of colors of paint and wax, this table went from farmhouse to fantastic!!

Mady’s Bedroom Furniture

These pieces may look familiar from the “Before” pictures of our Fairy Garden Glam room that I did for my friend, Melissa.  She wanted her daughter to have the old furniture, but I repainted it first so that it would be cool like Mady.  Here are the before and after’s.

The raw wood had seen better days, which means that its time to paint!

Fairy Garden Glam

I had so much fun redecorating this bedroom.  My sweet friend gave me very little direction on what she wanted, which can be good and bad.  I had all the freedom I wanted, but at the same time, she could walk in and hate it.  But the happy tears in her eyes when she walked in was all I needed to know that she was in love!!

Most of the pieces that I found for this room were repurposed, from basements, estate sales and thrift stores.  However, I didn’t scrimp on the fabrics and textiles, they are all brand new and fabulous.  All of the furniture was painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

The Awesome Condo!!!

This is the condo that I helped decorate.  This was a tad different because I had never been there.  I worked together with the owner who did all of the manual labor.  We make a pretty great team.

This is first pic is the after,  but take a look at those before pics too.  If you click on the after pic, it will open the link to airbnb.com and you check the whole place out!! This place looks AMAZING!!

I love walking out of a thrift store with a brand new project! I friend needed some end tables and I knew I had hit the jack pot with these beauties! Check out this transformation!

 

So sad at the store just waiting on me to find them.

Mercury Glass

My friend Tara was thinking about adding some mercury glass to a guest room.  She had seen some on the show Fixer Upper (who didn’t) and loved the look.  So before we took on the big project, Lily and I decide to tackle a small vase to see how to make mercury glass.  It was super simple as long as you have the right products.  The instructions said to get Krylon’s Looking Glass Paint and White Distilled Vinegar.  I could only find the Looking Glass Paint at the craft store. Basically, you:

  1. Put the vinegar in a spray bottle
  2. Spray the glass with vinegar lightly
  3. Spray with the Krylon
  4. Dab with a cloth
  5. Wait about 30 seconds…and repeat about 5 times.

    We had a blast making the vase look old!!

Jenn’s room

My friend Jennifer is a world traveler, super busy mom, and loving wife.  I have no idea how she gets it all done, but she honestly makes it look easy.  The only thing that she hasn’t conquered was their master bedroom and she asked us to help. We’ve transformed the depressed room into a calming sanctuary for Jenn and her husband to recharge, reconnect and take on the world.

The wall color is some sort of yellow mustard faux mix. I knew painting would be first on the list.
