Travel Room Decor

A few months ago we helped my 24 year old aunt re-decorate her room. We didn't have the opportunity to take pictures of the before, but we did finally get around to taking pictures of her room now. We got our inspiration from the Eiffel Tower wall art. We found it at a resale shop for $8.

Shabby Chic Desk Makeover

I just wanted to show you what we've been up to lately. I bought this desk at a resale shop last week and I worked on it for the last few days. With just a few coats of paint we gave it a whole new look.

DIY Framed Chalkboard

 My mom was running errands, and couldn't resist stopping by a thrift shop. She found a 42 inch x 30 inch framed art that was kind of ugly. If it hadn't been such a dark color, she wouldn't have thought to turn it into a chalkboard.

Making a Pallet Wood Sign

I guess spring is on it's way! There have been huge flocks of robins everywhere. I have never seen so many in my life. The other day I noticed that some of our little daffodils have bloomed. Everything will soon be GREEN! Spring  is such a beautiful time of the year!

 I know it's been a little while since you guys asked us to make a tutorial on how to make a pallet wood sign. I've finally got around to it! With family, and other activities keeping us busy, we've gotten ourselves motivated again and got working on the tutorial.

Chippy Painted End Tables

We got two end tables at a garage sale for five dollars so we could get some practice painting. They have been sitting in our basement since last fall because we didn't know what to do with them. After looking for inspiration on different blogs, we decided to try chippy paint with Vaseline.

Distressed Coffee Table Tutorial

This table was probably our first big furniture re do. We fixed this table up before we even contemplated starting a blog. It would have posted sooner, but since the table was done before we had the blog, I didn't take very good pictures. Well actually they were horrible. We didn't think about taking better pictures for a while because we gifted the table to some friends who needed some furniture for their new apartment. And after that I forgot about it. I finally got over there the other day, and they graciously allowed me to photograph their coffee table (which turned out pretty lovely, if I do say so myself:)

DIY Decorative Fabric Flowers

I recently got a request to do a tutorial on the decorative flowers from our post how to cover a box in fabric. So I finally got around to it. These are very simple flowers, and can liven up any simple project.
