Navy Desk Makeover

October 1, 2018

We are just two weeks till our Fall Sale!

The projects are happening!

See sale info HERE

This simple desk was next up in the stash.

 There is forever a stash.

Ho hum but in good condition.  The hardware was adding to the dated feel.

New bold color from Rust-Oleum milk paint finish in “Navy” and a pop of gold for contrast.  

Hardware can make a huge difference in updating a piece!


This was the new hardware in it’s original state.

And it works.  But we couldn’t resist the pop of gold against navy so we spray painted them using Rust-Oleum “metallic gold”.  Just scuff them up good with sand paper and do a spray paint primer first to help with durability.

Yes, definitely better!

Rust-Oleum products can be found HERE

Often an existing piece in your home just needs an update to bring it back to a loved piece.

So good!  Check out the before to see the power of paint!

Fall Porch made cozy

September 27, 2018

It all started with re painting the house.

(SW mindful gray)

The beige old furniture against the new crisp gray suddenly looked very dingy and sad.  I pulled it off the deck and shoved it in the bushes to get it out of the way and the porch has sat naked.  Two months worth of naked.

It was time.

Let’s cozy up this little porch and create an inviting welcome.


It was the perfect opportunity to add some seasonal color.

And pumpkins!  Always pumpkins.

Come see the sources and full before and afters

Bold Desk Makeover

September 20, 2018

 Sale prep is in full swing over here and we’re having a little fun with color on this one.

Loved the shape, the legs, the casters, the hardware.

She was a bit beat up and ragged.

We went for something very out of the norm for us and went bold with color!

And we were pretty sure we’d made a mistake.  This was looking a little TOO bold!

But persevere we did and we’re kinda liking this out of the norm piece!

A lot.

The hardware was aged perfection so we left it alone.

The gold accessories with pops of greenery provide the perfect compliment to the piece.


Depending how you accessorize this piece, it can go from vintage feel to fun and modern feeling.

Yes.  I’m pretty sure we like it!

Paint is  Rust-Oleum milk paint in Venetian Yellow.
