Just a Swingin'


We've always enjoyed relaxing on our back porch as a family, even more now that we have a new back porch swing!



My sweet little one would rather be outside playing than anywhere else. 




It's been so much fun decorating this outdoor space, that's a nice extension of our house.


 Here's a post about our patio makeover from a few years ago.

Mudroom Bench


I've been on the lookout for a wooden mudroom bench with storage for my garage. I found one recently that fit the budget and was the perfect fit! After adding baskets, pillows, and accessories this little corner of my garage will be something we use daily.





Wishing you and your family a Happy Fourth of July weekend!

Before and After: Coffee Table + End Tables

I'm back today to share a few more makeovers that I've been working on lately. This vintage coffee table- end table set was in excellent condition and had so much potential. It was just waiting to be updated and lightened with a coat of paint. This whole set sold within a minute after posting on a trading site!

Side Table Makeover


Hey there! This weekend I ventured out to a few sales in search of vintage furniture to paint. I was lucky enough to come across some great pieces to bring home! 


First up is this little $20 bookshelf that I turned into a side table for our living room. It's a perfect fit beside our sofa.


This piece replaced a taller round drum table that we've had awhile; so it's nice to have a different look in a room we use everyday. 


For this makeover I went with a light gray distressed finish.


This week I'll be sharing more furniture finds!

Chippy Highchair


This well-loved highchair was one of the many weekend finds that I shared about last week. I wanted a distressed and worn look for this piece- to help add a little vintage charm.

I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. 


Here's what it looked like before.


Now, it's just waiting for my daughter to dine.




 Enjoy the rest of your week!

Weekend Finds


This weekend I had a chance to go estate sale shopping. It's one of my favorite pastimes when we had the antique store, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity.

It's usually hit or miss at most sales, but I scored when I found this vintage highchair for $20. I can't wait to paint and distress this piece!



Then I found this vintage variety of white dishes and platters to use for decorating. They will be a great addition to my mismatched collection.



Finally, for Eleanor's current Mickey Mouse obsession I bought her the sweetest vintage books.



I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Empire Buffet Makeover


Hey there, it's been awhile! I am so excited to share with you what I worked on over the weekend! I inherited this antique empire buffet from my beloved grandmother last year. I originally planned to keep the natural tiger oak wood but it was just too orange for my taste. The piece had a few veneer issues that clearly needed covered. With a little hesitation I finally decided to bite the bullet and just paint the piece white.



Now I love the updated buffet even more than before. 



I decided to distress the piece and update the hardware.


It's new home will be in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Our future plan for the room will be a playroom for Eleanor and the buffet will serve as a TV console and extra storage.



Have a great day!
