Here are our favorite picks for this week!


Week 19 Friday's Furniture Fix Features


ReFind Design by Coco Clare took a vintage chest of drawers and turned it into the loveliest nursery dresser/changing table for her daughter. We're crazy about this shade of pink from Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint collection, the white floral knobs and it's original wood legs. So fun and whimsical!



Kim from Hunt and Host found this little side table for $5 at a garage sale. With a little chalk paint and some painters tape, she gave it both function and a purpose! Pop some popcorn... who doesn't love a good game of checkers!



Paige from A Junk Chick Life is a negotiator, a furniture flipper and a magician! Seriously, you absolutely have to head on over and see the before of this desk. It was a mess. Paige has restored it beautifully!




We're smitten with the texture and design of this classic grey dresser from Gray Table Home. Those knobs and the original wood legs and top give this piece both warmth and style.



Our most popular makeover this week goes to Heather from The Heathered Nest for her Mid-Century Modern Armchair Revival! What luck to find not just one, but a pair of these mid-century cain chairs! Gorgeous makeover, Heather!

Home For Christmas With Country Living And Hometalk

Holiday guest room, holiday decor, design, decorating, christmas

Country Living is one of the few publications I consistently admire. I look forward to every issue, and make a point of reading it cover to cover, so I don't miss a thing. I was thrilled to attend the Country Living Fair in Columbus this fall. The style offered in the pages of Country Living has evolved gracefully, from pure country, to organic, rustic, clean, with details that  define the warmth of a home.

I'm joining an esteemed group of home/garden/DIY bloggers this month to share a holiday project with CountryLiving.com and Hometalk.com



I decided to feature our guest room for Home For Christmas. This is a room that has been mostly neglected since we moved here a little over a year ago. Before guests arrive, I'm a busy bee, tidying and making the bed, but no real change has happened in this room. I'm thankful for understanding family and friends, and I promise that one day it will be amazing! I'm picturing a wall planked with reclaimed wood...

I did finally find a beautiful bed. I considered painting it, or possibly turning it into a bench, but I don't know if I could do either of those things. It's so pretty as is.

I wanted this room to feel warm and celebrate the season, without going overboard. A little holiday charm goes a long way!

The armoire below has recently undergone a big makeover. It is almost ready for its own post. In the meantime, it adds the perfect touch of red to this room.

My small collection of vintage brass candleholders fits perfectly on the armoire.

My Rustic Holiday Mantle

It was one of those non-stop weekends; I was running here and there, enjoying neighborhood events, soccer for three kids, an overnight birthday celebration, and the necessary cleaning and preparation for Thanksgiving. (Thanksgiving?!)

Sunday I forced myself to just stop everything and focus on my mantle, which sounds ridiculous, I know. But I am a nester by nature, and when my home feels organized, clean, and cozy, then I am able to focus on other tasks with a clearer mind.

I cleaned everything off the mantle except the mirror and bunting, then added and edited until it felt just right.

Jason brought home two of my favorite rosemary trees, and yes, I need to find a suitable replacement for the shiny black plastic containers. But if I let that hold me back I wouldn't have finished at all. So onward with the temporary pots.

I picked up the 5 and 8 from Fleurish Home, where I spend most of my days, teaching the best methods of painting furniture and assisting the shop owner with photography, staging, and other fun projects that pop up. Hint: sweet new website coming soon!

Now I am able to focus on all eleventy-billion items on my list, but no worries, I have two full days in which to make that happen, and a family who loves me even when I only finish one or two items on that list. 


Happy Holidays!

It's another round of Friday's Furniture Fix and we're so glad you're back! Thank you to all of you who shared your furniture makeovers with us this past week! This week we have a great mix of new and old, upholstered and wood, some neutrals, and some very happy color.

Here are our favorite picks for this week!



Week 17 Friday's Furniture Fix Features


This beautiful empire dresser was given the Mustard Seed treatment in Kitchen Scale, with a touch of Annie Sloan Dark Wax for the perfect shade of chippy, country turquoise. Excellent job, as usual, by DD's Cottage and Design!



This antique armoire by Denise of Salvaged Inspirations was transformed into a blue/gray beauty. I said blue/gray because I see it as more blue than gray. What do you think? (you can weigh in on the debate on Denise's website) Either way, she gave this armoire a new life with this beautiful color.



Here's another example of an old, dark antique in need of some updating. Enter Kandice, who always does a great job with furniture. She transformed this outdated buffet into a silver/gray beauty. Visit Just The Woods to see the before. 



Ready for some color? Bam! Thanks to Christine of Oquirrh Shadows Interiors, this dresser went from boring to beautiful, glossy red. 




Our most popular makeover this week goes to this chair, that frankly left me speechless. It is absolutely beautiful. Just an amazing before & after. Look at the cut-out details in the frame! *sigh* Great find and excellent work by Robin of Redo It Yourself Inspirations!

Thanks again to all of you who participated in this week's Friday's Furniture Fix! We can't wait to see what you will have for us this time around.

**With the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday, we are adjusting the schedule a bit. This party will last two weeks, with no link-up on the 26th. That means two weeks to enjoy family, fill yourselves with turkey and pie, and share your beautiful furniture with us! And we will be back December 3rd with a super-talented guest host!

A new party begins now...

DIY: Plaid Bunting On The Mantle




My love of plaid is getting out of hand. I know I'm not alone, because Owen's dresser got a lot of love from you. 

 Remember when George Constanza declared, "I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable?" That's how I feel about plaid... and denim. I don't even like country music, yet the plaid and denim call to me. 

I went to the fabric store with a '50% off total purchase' coupon, and chose these patterns, designed to connect Autumn/Thanksgiving with Winter/Christmas.


I know there are already several bunting tutorials out there, and there is no need to reinvent the wheel for something so simple.

Basically, I cut a triangle template from cereal box cardboard. Make it slightly larger (1/2 inch) larger than the finished size you're looking for. Once you sew, turn right-side-out, and iron, it will be smaller.  I used that template to cut about a gazillion plaid triangles. Then I pulled some jeans out of my stash, and cut the same triangles from the legs. I used denim on the back, plaid on the front.


Pin right sides together, then sew along the sides, leaving the top open. Turn right-side-out to finish, then iron flat.

This is an easy project. Easy enough that I used this as an opportunity to teach my kids to sew. Yes, even the boy got behind the sewing machine.


Once the triangles are sewn, I fold them into the seam of double-fold bias tape, and sew it into a plaid and bias sandwich. Easy. 

This falls somewhere between Autumn and Christmas, and still has that cozy holiday vibe.

I love it, and Jasper loves that fireplace.
