Before & After: Vintage Rocking Chair

You know you have a good friend when they grab two vintage rocking chairs out of the dumpster for you! I saw them getting thrown away next to where she works and she quickly grabbed them for me. I have two I rescued, but for now, I started with my favorite one.

It was in some serious need of a good makeover. I wanted to paint it a color that would look pretty in our daughter's room. I never painted fabric before and I was ready for the challenge. I used chalk paint for the entire project including the fabric. I love the way it came out and love how it looks in Brie's room.

Happy Day,

Custom Easter Basket & More Spring Decor in Our Home

I am so excited to show you Brie's first Easter Basket. I ordered it on online and couldn't wait for it to arrive. I was not happy it took more than a month to be delivered but it's here in time for Easter :)

Our first post on Spring Decor in a Rental was a big success! I wanted to add a few more touches of spring a light colors to complete our Spring look. Thank you all for checking our home out! I love all your wonderful comments :)

Spring Decor in a Rental

Renting has its limitations. You want to hang a million things on the wall, but don't want the nail holes to fix later on. You want to decorate outside for the holidays, but you are renting in a city and there is no lawn to decorate. These are some of my family's limitations with renting.

We are going to start our home search in the next few months, but in the meantime.....we work with what we have. We love the town and home we are living in now, but are ready to set out on this new chapter of our lives and grow as a family into a new home. When decorating for spring, I made the most of our "entrance way" into our home. It makes me smile every time I go out and in our door.

Happy Spring!

Happy Day,

Another Ann Sloan Makeover: Before & After

                                         I love myself a good furniture makeover!

 Finding time to paint when you have a little baby is difficult, but made me enjoy painting this piece even more! We were in need of some more storage in our home and this small dresser sits perfectly in our living room. I used a mixture of Ann Sloan's French Linen and Miss Mustard Seed's Grain Sack. I distressed the top and sides of the dresser. I switched out the wood knobs for brass knobs. I love the way it came out. Hope you enjoy!
