Tutorial: How to give glass furniture character!

etched+glass+021

I have this turquoise table that I bought for $5.00 at the local thrift store. I refinished it in a previous post, and it sits in my family room. I like it, but I kept thinking that it needed a little something. My brothers both have etched glass in the past, and I loved how their projects turned out, so I decided to try it. Step 1: Find a pattern that you like. This pattern came from a tablecloth from Target. The … [Continue reading...]

Little Boys Room Headboard Transformation!

boy headboard

My friend found this pottery barn headboard at Down East Outfitters for only $50.00! But, she didn't love the color. So, we painted it along with the shelves I posted about a few days ago. I went to the Pottery Barn Teen website to check out the price for this headboard, and it is $649.00 for the headboard only! She got a SCREAMING deal! If you have a Down East nearby you should check it out.We primed the headboard … [Continue reading...]

She also glazed it to make all the details pop.And don't you just LOVE her collages to … [Continue reading...]

The beginning of a little boy’s bedroom design!

Shelf

Do you have any furniture sitting around that isn't being used?  The shelves below used to be part of an entertainment center way back when, and they were sitting in my friend Dani's garage. They were a little worn, and they needed some love, but nothing beats a FREE piece of furniture that is sitting around. The first thing we did was replace the backs of the shelves to help with stability. She bought some MDF … [Continue reading...]

Reupholstering of pink chair complete!

Chair+before1

If you missed the preview post for this project, this chair is my friend Amber's. She bought her for only $12.00 at the local thrift store. We've been working on reupholstering it for a few weeks. When we got done with the front of the chair, I realized the the back was going to be a challenge. So we took a break and strategized (with the help of my go-to girl Jen of course!) Jen suggested a package of nailhead trim … [Continue reading...]

I ? KILZ primer.

kilz

I love KILZ. It is by far the best brand of primer out there. This week I broke my own rule. I bought another brand. AAAAHHHH. Wal-Mart was out of KILZ spray primer, and I was impatient. I bought another brand of primer. Sometimes we have to be reminded of why we choose certain brands, and this week was a HUGE wake-up call for me. KILZ comes out in a powerful coating, and the competition (tried multiple brands of … [Continue reading...]
