With the weather getting warmer I wanted to lighten things up around here, so I started with painting a few brown baskets to give them the look of a french antique basket. This is so easy and took me just about 30 minutes.
Did you know today is National Thrift Store Day, really it is! In honor of the day, a few of my blog friends and I decided to have a little fun with it. The challenge was to create, repurpose or just get creative with a thrifty find. When I came across this awesome frame for $5 I knew exactly what to do with it. The boys bathroom has wainscoting and a beachy feel and this frame was calling for a spot on the wall.

It has been awhile since I got a paintbrush out and transformed a piece of furniture, I had forgot how painting furniture makes me happy. I decided to makeover a armoire, it was one of the first pieces of furniture my husband and I bought together 16 years ago. When we moved from our condo to our current home this piece of furniture that once seemed so huge shrunk in size. (Funny how that happens) It now sits in the kids room housing lots and lots of lego’s!
I mixed Grant Beige add Valspar’s brushed pearl paint to give it a shimmery affect.
The results are stunning and I just love the design. I really hope you will give this a try.
With the boys home ALL THE TIME and my mom relying on me more and more it seems like any and all projects have been put on the back burner. When I actually had 20 minutes to paint a mirror I was pretty happy, it’s the simple things.
