For my thrifting addiction. I can't seem to stop myself. This hobby of mine is getting out of control. I see beautiful old pieces of furniture with great lines, and solid construction and I. MUST. HAVE. IT!! I know I don't have a place in my house to put most of it, but I want to take it home with . . .
Fabric Spray Paint Chair I bought this chair at my favorite thrift store, Faith Farm, many months ago for $5. It's one of my favorite chairs. Super cute and and comfortable. Love all the tufting on the seat back, which is why I didn't feel like I could re-upholster it myself. The green fabric . . .
I wanted to just write up a quick "how-I-did-it" for the painted chairs I posted about here. I first heard of painting furniture from this Pinterest pin... Kristy Swain at Hyphen Interiors painted a thrifted chair for her bedroom. It looked fabulous. Okay, fast forward a few weeks and I see . . .
I was so excited this weekend to find this little gem at Faith Farm... Yep, it's really a Stiffel! Some Stiffel lamps go for hundreds of dollars on eBay. As of today, someone has a pair of these listed on eBay for $250. Guess how much I paid for it? Yep!! 2 BUCKS!!! Insane! Obviously, they . . .
The other day I posted about painting the Thomasville desk I purchased for $149 at Faith Farm. Desk before I loved the way it looks now. It makes me happy just to look at it! Desk - After My only worry was that it was so much prettier than the room was. Before last week, the office was very . . .

This year, I've been having a hard time getting into the Christmas Spirit. In fact, I've kind of felt like him... I could bore you with the details of why, but I won't because I realize what a dope I am for sweating the small stuff. But, the other day I was on Facebook and saw a post from one . . .
So, I did it! I painted the living room chairs! Here's a picture of them before. Pay no mind to the mess behind it! And here they are now! Love the way the look, but they feel scratchy! Ugh! I had sanded them down and they felt much better, but then they also looked like they were dusty/old. My . . .
My son is having a few friends over tonight for a bonfire, so I decided to make brownies for them. I saw the cutest idea on Pinterest, and thought I would try it out. Aren't these just the cutest?! I thought, how easy would this be? So, I mixed up the brownie batter, sprayed the pan and . . .
The other day, while trying to get the Christmas tree out of the attic, I came to the realization that I need to stop buying new projects until I get done with, or rid of, the old ones.
