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...]

Bathroom Makeover After (19 of 19)

Our guest room is such a fun and colorful room, and guests have told me numerous times how welcoming it feels. That makes me so happy! In fact, check out my post about guest room essentials if you have a minute! The headboard in that room was kind of a fluke plan, but it turned out great. Sometimes you can't control the way a room turns out 100% in the planning stages, but it always turns out better in the end because … [Read more...]

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...]

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...]


I promised a few upholstery tips and tricks and when I promise something, I deliver {except that most of the time it takes a few more days than I originally planned}. Ok, let’s be honest, it always takes longer than I think it will! I’m a chronically time-challenged person. I was on time to roller skating last night, and it felt so foreign that I wondered if I was in the right place! Not kidding. Ok, so I had a blast with … [Read more...]


Woah, if you are on instagram, you know we’ve been busy busy these last few weeks doing upholstery, painting projects, stripping {not the kind you are thinking} ahem stripping paint, and traveling to SLC for a wedding. So, hopefully you’ve missed me as much as I’ve miss you. We got home late Sunday night after driving through a snow storm going 35 mph for hours and hours. So, today I didn’t do much to say the least. I … [Read more...]
