Painted Fabric on Furniture Tutorial

ATT Painted Fabric 1

I recently acquired a lovely turn-of-the-century settee.  When Kennadi begged to have it in her room, it was challenging to "Imagine" (stay with me, it'll click) how this... could possibly be made to go in a room that looks like this... We couldn't just "Let it Be," so I told Kennadi "We Can Work it Out!" (see what I did there?  You know, the Beatles...) Anyone who knows me knows that most problems in my … [Read more...]

Hand-Painted Furniture Hack

Painted-Furniture-Hack-2a

Hi! I'm Kristin, a.k.a. The Shabby Bride, from BB Frösch.  I'm all about furniture makeovers, up cycles, and redesigns.  I'm the lady you see in public wearing comfy painty clothes, hair pulled back, no make-up, diet Dr. Pepper in hand, and looking, well, less than "put together."  When I say "in public," I'm referring to Home Depot, Hobby Lobby, Garage Sales, and Auctions--not the grocery store.  Truthfully, my hands are … [Read more...]

DIY In-ground Trampoline Instructions FAQs

DIY-inground-trampoline-instructions.jpg

One of our most popular tutorials around here is our in-ground trampoline instructions from a few years back. At the Hoard Sale at the end of May, I met someone that used my instructions and it made me so happy to hear what a great experience they had putting their trampoline in the ground. Ever since I wrote the instruction post, I have gotten lots of questions about the process. So I decided that I should answer … [Read more...]

This post is sponsored by 3M DIY just keepin’ it real folks. It was long past the time to lay our leaf wall from 2010 to rest. It fought a good fight, and it had a great run. The truth is, I never even used this room. My desk {which is on the opposite wall in this picture} was always full of clutter, and the the room was pretty much the “catch-all” for the entire house. It was time for a change for sure! I drew … [Read more...]

Bad Ideas by Brooke {Never Paint a Couch}

why-you-should-never-paint-a-couch.jpg

I was had. I believed the tutorials. They said things like, “It went so fast,” or “It was a lot softer than I thought it would be.” Liars. {I’m sure they are lovely in real life, just for the record}. I bought this couch for $35.00 because I wanted a cute little couch for my office. It was the perfect size, and the tufted back had me at hello. Although I have reupholstered before, I thought painting the couch … [Read more...]
