How to Transform A Family Heirloom

Ok. Maybe “heirloom” is not a great choice of words, but “a piece of furniture you love that was handed down” seemed wordy. Do you have a piece of furniture that is special to you but is tucked away in the basement? As we were planning pieces for our cottage renovation, I remembered we had […]

Tricycle Buffet Before and After

It’s been a busy summer. So busy, I didn’t have time to get a display cabinet ready for my new set up in Lunenburg. Opps. I had a launch date and free demo night planned and needed a display cabinet. I found this large, solid and VERY heavy maple 70’s hutch and I thought it […]

Re-Loved Hutch in Schloss

We love doing before/afters. This sweet little hutch was a solid wood maple hutch I’ve had for a few months. It was sweet and a great size, but somewhat dated to me.   I decided to take the doors off and make it an open self and re-love the doors into hanging welcome signs. I […]

Budget Friendly Bathroom Update

I’ll be honest. We started this quick and easy reno months ago. MONTHS ago. We pick away at things when we have time.  It didn’t really take any time at all, but just to get to it seemed to take us awhile. It’s how we roll. As many of you know we have been slowly […]
