I have two small spaces on either side of my china cabinet. I was thinking about ways to decorate it and I decided I wanted to create a wall of decorative plates. I started researching about purchasing plates and of course, as always, I wanted to find a more affordable option. I wanted to decorate some of my own plates as well as purchase a few.
Tonight’s Extreme Makeover Ottoman style! This has been probably one of my biggest transformations yet. I was feeling pretty confident after recovering my valence and kitchen table chairs that I felt I could tackle this project head on! I had an old coffee table that my parents gave back to me when we bought the house – I had made this really great coffee table in middle school shop class….well there is a good possibility my shop teacher made most of it! Haha! My parents actually had it in their house for years in their family room. I said that I would take it and I was planning on repainting it and using in our new home. I didn’t really have a great spot for it in my family room or living room. I saw a lot of coffee tables turned into ottomans online. I loved the idea and was so excited to transform my coffee table! I had seen other projects such as this on Pinterest and decided to use Not So Newleywed McGees blog as a reference when working on my ottoman.Read More
I barricaded myself in my basement this week to paint a million different things while feeling very motivated. I keep coming up with new projects that I just simply have to work on immediately! Does this happen to anyone else besides me? I think having almost our entire house painted and ready to be decorated is my motivation! I just want it to be done and have it be “our” home and have the previous owners “moved out.”Read More

I have so many projects that I want to use spray paint and with larger items I need to wait until it warms up and I can go outside and do some painting!Read More
