Accent Chair Makeover

Coral is one of my favorite colours.  The perfect mix of orange and pink is amazing!   I knew when I picked up two of these chairs for $11.00 I wanted a bright coral colour.  So I went to the fabric store and found the fabrics that would be the inspiration for this whole project!

DIY Drawer turned Shoe Rack

My daughter has more shoes then my entire house hold put together.  And she’s only 2!  After our fire, we had so much amazing support from the community and Myra didn’t go with out a thing, especially shoes!  I needed to come up with a solution, the floor just wasn’t cutting it any more.  I had picked up a couple of lonely drawers from a bid site one day with Myra’s shoes on my mind. Here’s a quick tutorial on a great kids shoe storage!

Chalk Paint Coffee Table

As you may know, I am always on the hunt for a good deal.  One day I came across a solid wood coffee table on a bid wars site!  But it was way too orange for my taste.  So I picked up this table for $7.00!  I remember I had a bunch of other pick ups that day, my car was jammed packed!  With my 1 year old in the car at the time too.  The lady probably thought I was crazy. NOTE: my daughter was safe while I transported all goods 😉

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.
