Sprayed Upholstery 10

You know that ugly chair that has good bones but is too embarrassingly homely to keep anywhere that others can see it? You may have handed it down to your newly married kids who can’t afford new furniture. Or, you may have donated it to your neighbors. It looks something like this: GO GET IT BACK! NOW! TRUST ME. Tell them you’re sorry for pawning it off on them, and to make amends, you’d like to take it off their … [Read more...]

Bench Makeover (1 of 2)

Aparently a little paint and a 1/2 yard of fabric is all a girl needs to lift her spirits.  No wonder my husband is so confused about me at times. Ha!  pic source Random sidenote, my baby, Creed will be 5 years old in January! My mind skipped to that topic because his newborn pictures were taken on the bench.  I cannot believe that was nearly 5 years ago. I'm seriously in … [Read more...]


If you’ve ever read the book “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie,” you’ll understand how this: ...quickly escalated into a full-blown bedroom makeover involving: CHALK PAINT IN A SPRAYER CHALK PAINT WITH A ROLLER ON FABRIC STENCILS and HUSBAND SKILLS! Let’s call it “If You Show This Mom a Clearance Sticker…” The clearance sticker was attached to an amazing sparkly pillow. Sadly, the pillow didn’t quite … [Read more...]


No Rust-Oleum did not pay me to write this review. But, yes I got the paint for free, and yes this post has affiliate links. {Just keepin' it real.} I guess you can call me a skeptic. I am the type of person who needs to use a product myself to form my own opinion. So, when I was introduced to Rust-Oleum's Chalked Paint, I was naturally thinking, "I'll use it myself and see if I like it." If you … [Read more...]

crossmill media cabinet by BHG Live Better

My upstairs family room is definitely a work in progress. In my defense, I don't want to spend a lot of money on that room because the kids wreck havoc on that room. Until this week, we had the TV on a $14 IKEA shelf that was falling apart. I have had my eye on this BHG media console at Walmart for a few months, because it has such a pretty finish. Although I think the current legs are totally fine, I LOVE … [Read more...]

ATT WeatheredWood Table 20

Today was a great day for a Teddy Bear Picnic with Blaire. That's what grandmas do. Unfortunately, Kacey's $15 garage sale table and chairs looked like this at 8:30 this morning: I’ve been dying to create the latest "driftwood" or "weathered wood" look. However, the weathered wood products on the market call for hours of sanding to get to the bare wood, and we didn't have that kind of time. I’m all about instant … [Read more...]

ATT Metal Clock Makeover 1c

There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just say it. My daughter is a thief. Sort of. I can't complain, though, because her thievery represents a sweet form of flattery. When I refinished this dresser several months ago, I barely had time to photograph it before it disappeared... … [Read more...]


Happy New Year ATT Readers! We're the Fancy Farmgirls. We wanted to share with you how we "built" this entertainment center with ZERO building skills. We are constantly painting and giving new life to old furniture but neither of us have ever built a piece of furniture or built anything for that matter. We promise, ANYONE can do this! The hubby got a new T.V. for Christmas that wouldn't fit inside an old  armoire … [Read more...]
