A few projects...

With a little over a month away from Farm Chicks, it's time to put the pedal to the metal and get things happening around here!! Progress is slow, as life is inevitably busy with four active children, but little by little I get there (no, I "aint" no overachiever, that's for sure...!!) I have been working on a few projects, and still have many more to finish. I thought I would share a few I have finished...

This box was already darling but a bit plain... Instant transformation with a stencil and paint!

I found this little cabinet at a garage sale, but the body had some hand painted flowers that were not my style... So, a little stripper did the job, I love how it turned out!

Another thrift find, this chair was unpainted and had a brown leather seat cover (sorry, I forgot to take a "before" picture...!). Some paint and a stenciled linen cover and the transformation is dramatic!

This table was a lovely CL find, I love how unusual it is... 

I gave it a first coat of turquoise and a dry brush coat of white over it, a little distressing and glazing, and it looks awesome (even though I had a hard time painting over that gorgeous wood...!!)

I've also been sewing up a storm, but I will leave that for the next post... Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Whata a fantastic job you made of everything! A true master indeed! Can't wait to see your sewing projects next!
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Can't wait to see all your beautiful treasures you will bringing to Farm Chicks.

    Have a Fabulous Weekend!!

  3. Your projects look great. I really like how the table turned out..I'm always afraid to paint such nice wood but it looks good painted!

  4. Love the makeovers....I think I need to paint something soon!!!!

  5. Great makeovers! But, I think your bread box is actually a milk bottle box. When the milk man used to deliver milk to your door this is the box he would leave your milk in. That's why it is insulated. I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure. We keep dog food in ours. Hope you have a great show!

  6. Oh my goodness it all looks so pretty!!
    You are wonderfully talented!!

    Have so much fun at Farm Chicks!!


  7. Everything looks so pretty. You have done a great job.

  8. You are so good. I can see how it must have been hard to paint that table but I love the outcome! The color is perfect!


  9. All of the pieces are beautiful! I love how your chair turned out!
