You Can Tuna Piano {and paint it too}

You Can Tuna Piano {and paint it too} {28}

Today is pretty much a perfect Spring Day.  It’s warm, it’s sunny, it’s breezy, I’m not sneezing (yet).  My goal for today is to get outside and do some more mowing.  My lawn mower really is a happy place for me. Does that seem weird to you??  Have we talked about this before? Before I(…)

Junkers United with a DIY Vintage Yardstick Kitchen Organizer + a GIVEAWAY!

Junkers United with a DIY Vintage Yardstick Kitchen Organizer + a GIVEAWAY! {70}

    Hello Everyone!  The Junkers United Team has gotten together once again – so welcome back to another round of wonderful Junk projects.  We all do this kind of thing all the time individually but when we come together like this, you know the projects will be extra special and extra JUNKY!! I made this(…)

What, This Old Thing? {vintage barber chair}

What, This Old Thing? {vintage barber chair} {46}

I was taking a look around the house (in my mind) the other day and I realized that so much of the stuff that we have is old stuff.  It’s not very often that we go out and buy something for the house from a retail shop.  I thought maybe I’d start a feature, here on(…)

Breakfast Tray?  Bed Table?  { painting with miss mustard seed milk paint}

Breakfast Tray? Bed Table? { painting with miss mustard seed milk paint} {9}

Painting with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint So.  I’m not sure what the technical term for this small piece of furniture is… but I do know that it needed a makeover. What would you call it…? …besides dirty. This little table was actually a Christmas gift last year – and (good grief, I hope I’m(…)

Bookshelves Arranged by Color? {before & after}

Bookshelves Arranged by Color? {before & after} {23}

I guess I’m getting pretty bold about showing you pictures of the crazy spaces in my house.  I can tell you, that is a sure sign that things are actually starting to improve around here.  If everything is totally chaotic and I see no sign of getting it back in shape any time soon?  I’m probably(…)

Painting Built In Bookshelves {if you want something done right…}

Painting Built In Bookshelves {if you want something done right…} {21}

I know.  I’ve been a bit quiet this week.  Did you miss me?  What can I say?  School began on Monday.  You might think that I’d have all kinds of free time with the kids out of the house for the day.  All those free hours stretching out between drop off in the morning and(…)

In the Light of Day {everything looks better}

In the Light of Day {everything looks better} {34}

Vintage Schoolhouse Hooks (to make up for our lack of closets) (again) Do you think I’ve gotten the whole house put back together?  You saw the Before and After shots of the dining room a couple of days ago and so far, that is my biggest victory.  I know, it seems to be taking forever.(…)

Farmhouse Bathroom REVEAL! {finally!!}

Farmhouse Bathroom REVEAL! {finally!!} {115}

Yes!  Finally!  I know.  It’s been a long time coming.  The bathroom has actually been finished for quite a while but I was struggling with some silly perfectionism about finding just the right thing to put on the last wall and then I was struggling with getting the final photos to look the way I(…)

Once More to the Studs {Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation} DURING

Once More to the Studs {Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation} DURING {11}

Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation {before  –  DURING  –  after} I ended the first post in this mini series, the BEFORE section of the Farmhouse Bathroom renovation, by saying that everything in that bathroom had to go.  In truth, we did decide to keep one of the main features.  The shower stall in the corner is in perfectly(…)

Painting with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint

Painting with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint {32}

This post is not about me painting my piano.  I wish it were.  But it’s not. I know that I want to paint the piano with MMS Milk Paint – but I’m having trouble figuring out which color.  The top contenders are, Grain Sack, Ironstone, and Linen.  A few months ago I won some MMS(…)

Lucketts, Hometalk, and Junk {Funky Junk, that is. . .}

Lucketts, Hometalk, and Junk {Funky Junk, that is. . .} {28}

If you were reading along with me at this time last year, you might remember that I made the long trip to Leesburg, Virginia to visit The Old Lucketts Store and shop the Lucketts Spring Market.  Why travel all that way to go to an antiques market?  Well, it really is among the best and(…)

I’m Not a Mantle But I Play One in the Hallway

I’m Not a Mantle But I Play One in the Hallway {27}

So the Fall decorating continues. As I travel through my first year as a blogger, I am a little amazed at all of the creativity that I see.  I find it fascinating that we are all doing a similar thing (decorating for a season or a Holiday), but each of us is doing something just(…)

Shut the Barn Door! {if only you had a barn door to shut}

Shut the Barn Door! {if only you had a barn door to shut} {28}

They are out there.  I know they are.  They’ve been out there for some time now. I’m not even sure how many there are any more.  I think there might be more now than the last time I checked on them.  They might be multiplying. . . I first noticed them right after I got(…)
