Our master bedroom has a large shelf that spans from one wall to the other and I was really excited to make this a focal point in our bedroom. I knew right away that I wanted to paint the shelf as it was just plain golden wood. I wanted to do a little bedroom shelf makeover.Read More
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’m not in love with my kitchen cabinets but I am living with it for a while and not painting them white because I know how large of a task it is. Plus once you paint them it’s really hard to go back to the original wood. With that being said I have wanted to make a lot of minor changes in my kitchen to update it. Something small that I did and has made a huge difference is changing out the knobs on all the cabinets and drawers.
When my husband and I bought our house our kitchen was fairly updated. It had granite counter tops, new laminate flooring, and a tile backsplash. It wasn’t that bad of a kitchen but I knew that I wanted to do little things to update it a bit.
After a lot of convincing my husband and lots of research, I decided to start by painting the tile. We couldn’t afford a whole new backsplash so we figured we could make a small change and if we hated it we could eventually replace the backsplash. Thankfully, we ended up loving it and have no plans to replace it at this point. I got the idea of painting the backsplash from 11 Magnolia Lane’s Blog from a pin on Pinterest. It was a small budgeted tile transformation that we loved!Read More
