Ice Cubes in my Nightstand!?

DSC_0095

Greetings! We are two sisters (yes we're twins ;-) ) who grew up as "farmgirls" and still love to nurture the farmgirl within. We have 11 kids between the two of us (yes, it's lovely chaos) and two very patient husbands.  We love giving 2nd chances to 2nd hand finds and bringing old furniture back to life. We have a hard time walking away from furniture with "potential", so in 2010 , in an effort to stop the hoarding … [Read more...]

DIY Bubble Balloon Party Centerpieces {and Haven Recap}

Haven-10.jpg

  Now that I’ve slept for a week {just kidding…kind of}, I can finally function properly and write this post. Haven Conference was in Atlanta again this year. It was a BLAST! It always blows me away to meet new people, and reconnect with my dear blog friends that I don’t see very often face to face. At Haven this year, Mandi {my local blogging BFF} and I were asked to create centerpieces for the Tide Oxi … [Read more...]

How to Hack and Stencil a Thrifted Table

Thrift-Diving AFTER .jpg

  Me and thrift stores have this weird connection: I think up some treasure in my head that I want to get my hands on, and miraculously during one of my quick "drive-bys" at the thrift store after work, there "IT" is, as if someone donated it just for me. That's what happened with this $30 solid, thrifted table that I hacked and stenciled for my latest DIY project. (Yes, just $30!!) Before I show you how … [Read more...]

The 6 best things about decorating.

you-are-amazing.jpg

#1. Your house doesn’t have to win an award to be a home. Friends, life is practice, and according to Malcolm Gladwell, you need to practice something for 10,000 hours before you can be an expert in a certain field. So, can I say I’m a decorating expert? Probably not. But, I can definitely tell you that I love to decorate. I have been obsessed with making a house feel like a home since my first apartment in college 15 … [Read more...]

After inhaling caffeine I realized it was true and I could not be more thrilled to be part of Brooke's team! My name is Allison and I blog at Two Thirty~Five Designs in a tiny corner of Texas. I have a … [Read more...]

I have a confession, I didn’t reupholster these.

yellow-chair-before.jpg

Some of my favorite posts of all time on All Things Thrifty are our reupholstering tutorials, but I am not going to deny the fact that lately I have paid to have a few things reupholstered. Upholstering takes a LOT of time, and time is something that I’m lacking these days. Over the past year I have grown a lot as a Mom and a person, and I have learned to value time a lot more.  So, one of my upholstery projects sat for … [Read more...]
