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[...]

*This post is sponsored by DecoArt. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.* Hey. You. Yeah you! Long time no talk my friend. How is it already October? Honestly, September flew by at mach speed & now I've got Christmas on my mind. Just kidding. Almost. It's been awhile since we've had a real good furniture makeover around here, so I'm SUPER excited to be sharing this one with you today. I snagged this beauty desk off a local buy and sell page and it originates from the rare IKEA tree. Ok, not so much rare, but it's legit from a tree. And not the[...]


Mid Century Dresser to Media Console Makeover

It's been awhile since I've shared a furniture makeover on the blog. Come think to think of it, it's been forever since I've actually re-finished a piece of furniture!! I snagged this mid century beauty off a local buy and sell page recently for a whopping $25 with the full intention of converting it into a media console. I've been wanting to tackle a project like this for a while, it was just hard to find the right dresser to do it with! As soon as one comes up on the buy and sell pages, it's gone. 9 drawer dressers are apparently a popular item in these parts[...]
