Ombre Love – Learn to do this yourself!

So as you may have read in my earlier post, our home had burnt down!  We are currently staying in a temporary townhouse while our house is being rebuilt.  Now I get to decorate this place and then soon our brand new home! I am starting with our daughter’s room.

I went into a couple thrift stores just hoping to find a project I could work on at work.  I was just waiting for inspiration to hit me! And it did, for a total of $24.00!

Sofa table upgrade! Learn to do this yourself

One day my little family and I were just driving up to our house when two doors down, I spotted a piece of furniture!  It had my favorite word on it too, free!  My hubby could tell my excitement and right away say no.  Our house was beginning to look like a furniture store with all the projects on the go.  At that time I think I had about 15 project pieces and a few upgrades to current furniture pieces on the go.  And we had a small house.

I finally convinced him that this piece would only take me a couple days and when I was through with it, it would sell in no time!  We also made a deal that I wouldn’t nag him about his golf day he wanted to have the next day.  Little does he know I didn’t care about him golfing and love it when he can get out and do things he loves!  But I put up a bit of a fight anyways just to ensure I could get the piece 😉   We walked down and grabbed the sofa table.

Mid Century Side Tables UPDO

So, in the beautiful town I live in, once a year there is something called “Spring Clean Up” or “Free Dump Week”  This is my, and all furniture refinishers and crafters favorite time of year!  Everyone can put anything they want out for garbage pick up.  Now most people, like myself, put out items that I know others may want or need.  You may think it’s a little weird to have people rummaging through your garbage, but its a great way to recycle!  Anything that I put out that didn’t get picked up by my fellow garbage pickers, I would actually bring back in the house and donate to the thrift store soon after, so its not all going in the landfill 🙂

80’s Headboard turned Book Nook

Do you remember those tacky 80’s headboards? The ones with built in shelves?  They were heavy, and dark, and awkward! Most of the time you could barely give them away for free, but here I was, jumping for joy when I found one for $10! I knew exactly what I wanted to do and already had my inspirational wallpaper on hand.  This was going to be our daughters new book nook!

DIY Coat Rack

I have always been a very creative person, but over the last few years, I have found myself relying on Pinterest for all my ideas.  Although there are some amazing creations on Pinterest,  I miss my originality.  So this project was inspired completely by myself walking through the hardware store. Take a look for yourself!
