KITCHEN REVEAL - our home tour

Over the last little while I have rediscovered a few areas
in our home and the kitchen is one of the spots I have
focused on. I have also never really done a true reveal 
on this room so it's about time. It all started with a new
set of shelves and spilled over to refinishing the fridge
and even GG's coffee station got a makeover. I'm super
happy with the new look and now it's time to share our
little piece of heaven with you.

EASY FARMHOUSE WALL ART - with an ink jet picture and a piece of wood

I wanted to make a quick and easy piece of farmhouse
wall art and the first one I completed was with this
vintage cow image from The Graphics Fairy. I was
so happy that it only took one hour and I did it with
stuff I had around the house. And I'm here to tell you
it looked amazing. So I made a second one and wrote
a "HOW TO" to share.

THE SMALL DETAILS OF DECORATING shabby chic switch plates

My home is about bringing together unique worn white
finishes with vintage charm that remind me of simpler
times. A place we always want to retreat to and spend
time together. Vintage switch plates have definitely helped
me create that feeling in our decor. They have won my
heart and have such excellent vintage character they
added a special touch in many rooms around my
home. I have them strategically placed only where
we will see and enjoy them, I don't hide them behind
furniture. Take a look at some of these photos of our
electrical plates to see where they get used and you just
might see a few new angles of our home you were not
familiar with.

Last week the trees were all blooming
with tons of flowers and I figured it was
about time to cut some and build a spring
vignette for myself and shoot some photos
of a "new to me" piece of furniture.

I really did name this blog because
I do love working with wood. And
even more I love saving broken down
wood furniture from the landfill. Come
and see how I used these two roadside finds
to create one fabulous piece of furniture.

I'm sharing with you how a simple three drawer dresser
gets a complete makeover in my house. Everything from
a new color and hardware to appliques and how to remove
white water marks from the top surface.

PAINTING MY FRIDGE - with annie sloan chalk paint

The day finally arrived that the fridge
was finished, and my makeover didn't
cost a lot. I was just trying to solve what
to do with some rust stains and broken
handles before it escalated into
something bigger.
