Retro Shelf Revamp

Retro Shelf Makeover with Country Chic Paint in Jiggity

Each year the church ladies hold a large garage sale 3 doors down from us. It's a total win/win for me. I can scope out the goods before the sale starts, then sneak over on my way to work in the morning! I lucked out when I found this retro shelf there! It was just sitting there, in all its retro glory, calling my name! This piece was definitely unique. The top was pressboard with a faux grain laminate top, which led me to assume that the whole thing was built that way. Once I started sanding it down I realised that the body was solid wood, only the top[...]

Fresh Mustard & Liquorice: A China Cabinet Makeover

China Cabinet to Entertainment Stand Makeover

I might sound like a broken record, but you guys. The makeover I'm sharing with you today is AMAZING. Honestly, I've  been exploring bolder hues on furniture and wondering why I didn't do it sooner! **This post is sponsored by Country Chic Paint, the opinions given are my own. You can see my full disclosure here** This poor china cabinet has been sitting in my garage for 18+ months. My plan from the start was to convert it to a TV cabinet....but what color do I go with? I was browsing through the color selection online at Country Chic Paint and kept going b[...]

Dressing a Grandfather clock in Peacoat

A grandfather clock makeover with Country Chic Paint in Peacoat

**This post has been sponsored by Country Chic Paint. All opinions are my own.** Happy Monday! Was today a bit easier to deal with given the time change that happened over the weekend? Luckily I live in Saskatchewan, where we stay on central time 365 days a year! In the spirit on springing forward (or dialing back), I wanted to pop in today and share this beauty of a grandfather clock makeover with you. Last May I found this grandfather clock at a local garage sale. It's price tag was $20 and I had maybe .90 cents in the cupholder of my vehicle. I asked the ow[...]

A Gold Showstopper

Friends! This month I've joined some pretty fab ladies for the The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest.  This months theme is Showstoppin' Tops sponsored by ETI Envirotex. What exactly is Envirotex Lite? It is a water clear reactive polymer compound that cures to a thick, glossy coating. It is the equivalent of 50 coats of varnish! Huge thanks to Envirotex for providing the resin to really help make this project a showstopper. You can read my full disclosure here. I've had this old phonograph cabinet sitting in the garage collecting dust for ages now.[...]

The Wingback Wonder – A 6 Month Review

Chalk Painted Fabric Chair: A 6 Month Review. What I like, what I don't like and why I would do it again.

6 months ago I painted a wingback chair and the whole world loved it! Mostly. The man in the house still isn't sold on the color, but he sits in it more often than not, so I don't take his complaints too seriously. So here we are 6 months down the road and I've had numerous questions about how the chair has held up to the wear and tear of our family. Today I'm bringing you the good, the bad and why I would do it again. Here she is in all her glory 6 months later and a ton of wear in. The Good She's still quite stunning! The color held up very well, I[...]
