Old Desk Made Cottage Cute

  Quick n inexpensive makeovers? Is there such a thing? Yup. There is. I bought this desk from our friends, I think it was rescued from an old barn. It was in pretty bad shape. Like…I almost threw it out kind of bad shape. It was dirty, full of stickers and in pieces. And HEAVY. […]

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 […]

Old Trunk Gets a New Life

I love an old trunk don’t you? I imagine the story behind it, where has it been, what journeys has it been on? I loved this trunk when I found it. It was in excellent shape inside and out but it was asking for a fresh new update. I have the hardest time picking colours. […]

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 […]

Tricycle Milk Painted Painted Dresser

I have always wanted to paint a dresser with Miss Mustard Seed’s Tricycle Milk Paint. When I found this sweet solid wood dresser I knew what colour it was going to be. I was inspired by this dresser by Miss Mustard Seed. I didn’t have a beautiful Empire dresser,  I did have a sweet simple […]

Red Painted Stools

Its so funny what a little paint can do isn’t it? I have had these cute perfect little stools for some time now, they have survived 2 moves and a kitchen reno, they are comfy and the perfect height. But they were a bit blah don’t you think? They were “bugging” me (almost as much […]
