Dining Room Decor

As I stated in my last post, we have a lot of past projects and no documentation of any sort to show how we did any of it. So I'll just have to show you the "after" and explain.

The first thing I'll show you is the dining room. We have about three projects that went on in there.
One is an old table that someone left on the side of the road. Really banged up, and oh did I mention it's made up of random parts? It used to be dark and kind of reddish. So I won't keep you waiting any longer. Here She is....TA DA!

What's the Point?

My mom is actually the one who got into blogs. Every morning, after taking my siblings to school, is her hour(sometimes two) to browse blogs and get new ideas. That is actually how our great over-all house re-do came into being.

We always have been into art. I guess that is where it really started. But lately (since we started browsing blogs) and even before, my mom has liked junk. On the side of the road, in actual junkyards, you name it. After we find our treasures is when our vast knowledge of DIY comes into effect. We usually have an idea right away when we see something now, because of bloggers out there who put their techniques out there for anyone and everyone who has a passion for all things old, broken, and last (but certainly not least), vintage. A really quick shout out to bloggers out there, you are appreciated!

About Me

Hi, I'm Emily, a young college student/artist. I love decorating, re-decorating, and re-purposing. My mom and I re-do unwanted furniture and pallets in our spare time. The best stuff is free stuff, and you can make anything out of nothing with a little bit of creativity.

Here are some things about me:

 -I run a shop on Etsy called Namely Original. I make Name Art and Chalkboard Signs.

 -I'm the oldest of nine kids. 

 -I live a small town in Missouri.

 -I play the violin.

 Thanks for stopping by!
