Free Dresser Fix Up - Paint It White!

Last October I saw this free Dresser posted on Facebook marketplace. I threw Dylan in the car and we ran to get it! 

When I picked it up I noticed that the previous owner had started spray painting it white, but did not get very far. Now normally I would never have thought to paint this dresser at all! The wicker crevices and the bamboo details would cause too much of a challenge for my typical quick flip! But the project had already been started and I was determined to finish it. It sat in my garage all winter and then finally on the first nice day of spring I pulled it out. 

With the help of a gravity fed compressor powered spray painter, I painted this bad boy White. Of course I forgot to take a before photo but here she is in her luminous white washed glory!

I actually think I’m going to keep this one for now. 

Wood Tray Upcycle - Thrifty Rustic Beach Style

The spring season always inspires me! I find myself hunting for furniture to fix up and flip. This little quickie was my first project of the season. It was a perfect little launching off point! 

I went to a nearby rummage sale - hooray for rummage sales! - and they had to fill a garbage bag for a dollar deal! I shuffled through their clothes and home goods, kitchen wares and filled my bag with miscellaneous items I definitely did not need. I found a few cute onesies for my one year old and yet another green shirtfor the two year old. 

Then I spotted this simple wood tray! Yes! And the flipwas on. Here is what I did to it!

I love how it came out! I got that twine at the dollar store last year and have had that paint for a while so this cost me about $1 and 30 minutes! 

Wishing you all a wonderful spring!

Before and After Kitchen Makeover: Blue Glass Tile and Vermont Maple Cabinets

Do I even need to label which of these pictures are BEFORE and AFTER our big kitchen renovation makeover of the century? We finished the kitchen just one month before our first baby boy was born. What a pregnancy project it was! We also redid the bathrooms and carpets, hopefully I can dig up some photos to share!

Enjoy the changes!

Before - Dark dungeon kitchen!

Before - odd layout

Before - cramped counters

Before - cabinet were dated and literally falling apart

Kitchen makeover! Granite countertops, blue sea glass tile backsplash with Vermont maple cabinets and under LED cabinet lighting. Refreshing!

Kitchen AFTER photo: Love the overhang of the countertop, blue subway glass tile backsplash and an industrial stove and hood.

Kitchen renovation featuring Mike's favorite grill top stove and oven. 

Kitchen after photo featuring the new layout with more counter space and cabinet space.

Kitchen - deep under-mounted stainless steel sink... big enough to bathe my child in that sink!

Basement Progress

Mike and I are working on getting the basement cleaned and useable! So far, we have painted the walls blue, all the trim and closet doors white, put up the trim, and I made curtains for the sliding glass doors!

Trim and Paint DONE. Also painted the radiators, closet doors, posts and the shelves.


After 2 coats of white. I put about 4!

Love the stained glass window look when they are closed!

Feeling so happy about the progress!
