I picked this up at our local thrift store for $9
After I painted it, I changed the hardware to media pulls. They update the piece and hide the former knob hole
Now it kind of looks like a built in
I added scrapbook paper labels for now and until I decide what the more permanent labels will be
A little more scrapbook paper on the bottom adds a pop of color
I think we finally have storage for all our “coffee bar” needs
Great storage for all the essentials
I made a trip to Hobby Lobby for paint and couldn’t resist purchasing a few knobs. Isn’t this cow head cute….maybe I can store creamer in that drawer, non-dairy of course :)
enjoy your week! Sharing at:

I’m loving the typography pillows that have been turning up in magazines lately so, I decided to cut a stencil with my Silhouette Cameo and make one. Guess what, it was super easy!!
I picked up a three pack of these tea towels at Walmart. They’re oversized, just right for a pillowcase
After I cut a stencil with the Cameo, I painted it with craftpaint.
Here it is all done, I plan on heat treating it with an iron then sewing a piece of fabric on the back to create a pillowcase or sham
Here it is all done. This idea was so easy I think I’ll do holiday pillows next
Maybe a “I AM NOT A MORNING DOG” pillow would be more appropriate
I’m falling (back) in love with laminated burlap…….I’ve used it before here and here but, it’s also the perfect quick fix for a porch that was looking a little too summer-ish on these first days of fall.
After I ran it through the printer, I peeled the laminated back off.
I pulled a few of the side threads to fray it a little then, pinned it to the pillow cover I made from a drop cloth.
I’ll admit, sewing isn’t one of my strength…..ie dog ear pillows but, it’s fine for a few months on the porch
To back track a bit, this is the pillow I covered. I picked it up at Marshall’s over the summer.
Next, I cut Hydrangeas from our yard and added them to a basket
I used an old ribbon and a paper clip to attach a matching bow. I’m gonna add a few rocks to the bottom of the basket to keep the wind from knocking it over
Here’s the view from our breakfast table, much more fall
And just like that, summer became fall and it was ALL for free!
Like most painter’s, white is never my favorite color to use. I will admit, the results are usually dramatic but, it usually requires more work to get it right and it’s kind of boring – the process that is. This table was no exception but, I think it was the right color for a timeless piece like this
I love the size of this piece and the classic lines too. There was a little veneer damage so, it’s a paint candidate
The new owner also wanted the pull replaced with one centered knob. After I applied the first coat, we started the repairs
This is the product we use to fill holes and fix mild damage
After I’m happy with the coverage, I sand with very fine paper to reveal some of the original finish
I like to add paper to the drawers whenever possible. I used Mod Podge to give it a matte finish
All done and ready for it’s new home
Have a great week!

Who doesn’t love a little crushed oregano and if it’s a cute place to store your sewing supplies, even better
I picked up this sewing table at a local garage sale. It’s really cute and quite functional, we had to do a little repair to the wood so, it’s a definite paint candidate
I used Valspar Crushed Oregano….it’s such a vibrant color, a little distressing made it even more interesting
The swing out storage is perfect for thread, needles and all those little sewing supplies that need a home
I used a wipe on poly to protect the finish. As you can see, I haven’t polyied the bottom drawer yet or picked up knobs but, it’s close
Here it is in our kitchen, probably not it’s permanent home but a good indication of it’s scale
Just need to find the right knobs and poly the swing out drawer and this can go in the completed pile :)
I found these acrylic apple green knobs in the dollar section @ Michael’s. Still trying to decide if I like them
I just love this bird paper, if this table had a theme song it would be “Happy”
Enjoy the remaining days of this gorgeous summer!
