Rustic Buffet | Over The Top Furniture Makeovers

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

I am definitely a lover of over the top furniture makeovers.

Painted furniture.

The more unusual the better!

It can be glossy, distressed, multi-color, whatever….if it’s different….in a good way….I like it.

What floats the boat for one person is a “never” for another…..that’s what makes the world go round.

Boy I’m just full of witty sayings today.

Stencil Wallpaper Decoupage Project | Nutcracker Soldier

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

One last Christmas project.

I meant to wind this project up last week but just finished it yesterday.

I’m calling it a stencil wallpaper decoupage project ….and that’s what I’m sticking to….no pun intended.

 

Stencil Wallpaper Decoupage Project Petticoat Junktion

You see I’ve had this red and green textured wallpaper forever.

I’ve tried using it as a table runner, display backdrop, and several other things.

Nothing seems to work.

When I did the nutcracker stencil project last week I had an ah-ha moment!

Racy Red Furniture | Favorite Furniture Friday

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Favorite Furniture Friday is a new feature I will be doing each week.

This week’s feature is Racy Red Furniture!

The perfect color for the season.

I started looking at painted furniture on the internet last week….trying to get inspiration.

I used to do this all the time.

Now I’m back in the game.

There are so many talented painters out there and I wanted to share some of my favorite furniture makeovers from blogland with you.

Painting furniture isn’t just about paint and a brush.

It’s about having a vision and knowing what works.

I think these folks know what works….

 

You Are Talking Too Much

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

I really did procrastinate on my Christmas decorating.

I didn’t have time to edit all the photos and put them in the Procrastinators Christmas Home Tour post.

So guess what’s on the agenda for today?

You guessed it…more Christmas decorations…..

Snowman Junk Project | The Glue Gun Chronicles

My friend Paula gives me a hard time because I want to use the glue gun for everything.

She believes in using slow drying glue, or a needle and thread, or heaven forbid….a sewing machine for some crafts.

Not me.

Not if the glue gun works.

I’m never short of glue sticks.
