The Shop That Sara Built

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Today I’m taking you on a tour of the shop.

The one that Sara Built.

When I say she built it…I mean she purchased the shop a couple of years ago and did a major overhaul.

She added new vendors, did some advertising, started carrying a variety of furniture paints and products, and created a space for us to give paint workshops.

She greets everyone that comes into the shop with a smile on her face….except maybe me….sometimes.



You Never Know The Shop That Sara Built

This is Sara…see….she isn’t greeting me with a smile.

I don’t think she wanted me to take her picture Winking smile

Sisal Rope Drawer Pulls {Nautical Style Furniture}

Thursday, July 17th, 2014


It took me forever to get this post ready.

While I was typing it up last night the JTS made me some chocolate chip cookies.

That helped.

You guys saw a preview of this piece earlier in the week.

You know….when I had to change plans?

Nautical Wall Decor {20 Minute DIY}

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

I don’t know about the weather where you are….but it’s fabulous here.

I’m surprised I got anything accomplished yesterday.

I would work for a while then sit for a while.

When the weather is nice I open the garage door to the workshop and paint in the natural light.

Yesterday I sat in my chair and enjoyed the view more than I worked.

My neighbor’s flowers are beautiful and so is my crepe myrtle.

Right Paint Color Wrong Plan

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Do you start a new project with a game plan in mind?

Can you see the project taking shape in your mind and what the final product will look like?

Before I start a furniture makeover I have a plan in my head.

I can see the finished makeover in my mind’s eye and I know what steps to take to achieve the look I want.

But sometimes the way I see a project in my mind is not the way it’s turning out on the paint tarp.

I hate when that happens…but what do you do?

You change plans.

I bought this piece from My Favorite Junk Shop.

I think you may have heard me mention it a time or two.

I don’t remember what I paid for this chest.

It was probably around $30.
