Our Dining Room Makeover

Hello everyone! I FINALLY am getting around to putting together this post to show you all our Dining Room makeover ~ Originally it had pink carpet and pink and white striped wallpaper. Now it has a more Shabby Chic look, which I love so much better! We removed the carpet to expose the original hardwood flooring; sanded it...sanded it again...and yet again, lol, then finally put down the stain and poly. Removed the pink and white striped wallpaper, and put up a Beadboard style wallpaper. We also sold the Oak dining room table, and had this fabulous farmhouse table custom made. The top is made from VERY old large barnwood planks. I painted it with Annie Sloan's Old white, but did a rub finish for the top so that you could still see some of the wood grain showing thru.

This sweet vintage cabinet was a Goodwill find for only $8. It was painted a cute baby blue, but I chose to paint it this fab pink color.

This very old farmer's wood caddy was found in an old fallen down barn by my husband, which he brought to me, and I gave it a makeover with Annie Sloan's Chalk paint in the Antoinette color.

I hope you enjoyed the photos of our dining room makeover!
Until next time sweet friends!

Items currently available in my eBay shoppe

Hello everyone! Just popping in to say hello, as it has been a while since my last post. Thought I would share a few photos of some new items that I have listed in my eBay. I've worked on some really shabby chic stockings for the upcoming Christmas holiday. LOVE creating this style, more simple! And more in keeping with how I am decorating my own home. I also have a fab wall rack that I created using vintage wood, metal hooks, and painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, in the Antoinette color. Love this soft shabby shade of pink!

We finally have our Dining Room makeover all finished, and will do a post showing you pictures of it in a day or so.

Until next time sweet friends!!

Hello everyone! Yes, I am still around, just not so much here on my blog. You can usually find me more on Instagram, and occasionally on Facebook, lol.

Today I wanted to share with you a few random photos, featuring some new vintage treasures, and my latest OOAK pillows that I have listed currently on eBay.

First up is this Gorgeous pair of Vintage Italian Florentine tole lamps that I found at our local Goodwill a few weeks ago. I got them both for just $6, can you believe it !! I couldn't get them in my cart fast enough, lol. Goodwill now cuts off the plugs on all old lamps, but I would have had them rewired anyways, which I had my hubby do :)

I've been on the search for the perfect shabby vintage bench, and found this one at a local Antique mall. It was originally red, which you know That would just not do, lol, so I first painted it a soft pink, then this perfect shabby green, allowing the pink to show thru .... LOVE how it turned out!!

On Memorial Day, there is this HUGE Flea market just north of us, at Burley Park, and managed to find a few treasures to bring back home with me ...

Here is a little something I made for myself ... love this beautiful Jubilee fabric from Rachel Ashwell, and ordered a couple of yards of it to make this 26" Euro sham ... LOVE IT !

These next 2 photos of my newest pillows that I've created and listed on eBay, The link for my eBay shoppe is up near the top of my sidebar, if you would like to hop over and check them out...

Well, this is some of my Random-ness for you today, lol. We are currently working on re-doing our Dining Room, and hope to have things finished in a month or so, and of course, will post pics here for you all to see when it is finished... This room is taking longer than what it did for our Living room, as there is more work that has to be done to restore the original hardwood floors in it.

Until next time sweet friends !!
