Spray Painted Chairs

Long time ago when the kitchen makeover was done, I bought a set of Parson chairs for my breakfast nook, I liked them, but after having them for some time, I didn't like that they blocked the view from the family room to the kitchen and vice-verse, their backs were too high and overall they were too big for that small space.

Table Makeover

I bought this table about 8 or 9 years ago at Target. I was trying to give my bathroom more storage so, a long narrow table with drawers was the perfect solution. After assembling it and bringing it to the bathroom I discovered it was too big, too wide for the room :(

I didn't return it, it stayed in my bedroom for a couple of years. Then, it went to

Tribal Designs Teacher Gift with Sharpie

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sharpie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia  #StaplesBTS http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV"

This year was no different than the ones before, my kids couldn't wait to go shopping for back to school. Though, this year we waited until August, and that's very late for us. I remember buying back to school supplies as early as June because they were afraid to return from Summer vacation to empty shelves. :)

Flea Market Finds - August & Giveaway

Was your weekend great?
Mine was OK. Nothing special, just doing stuff around the house.
Time for sure is running fast,
                                          it's August!
And with a new month comes another installment of "flea market finds".
It was a beautiful Saturday morning, it wasn't hot at all, the temperatures have been so mild it looks like Fall arrived before time.

We didn't get many treasures, there were many vendors selling clothes and that's not what I like to look for. :( Anyhow, the following items came home with us.

The Ice House Museum

Does it happened to you too? 
You go on a vacation, enjoy your time, visit lots of places, take tons of photos, 
return back home to unpack and continue life as usual...

 a year later when looking for something totally different, 
you come up to those pretty pictures you have completely forgotten!

Well, these ARE those pictures.

Our last year vacation was spent in New York and New Hampshire 
where we were very happy and lucky to stay

DIY - Tripod Side Table

This little table was in the big guest room reveal, even though it was difficult to notice it because of all the light coming from the window, my friend Beck spotted it immediately, not surprisingly, she is a photographer's mother.  ;)
The table was born out of necessity. Since the bed is a daybed, both side tables are a bit useless when you're laying down.

DIY Round Mirror from a Tabletop

Another project done for the guest room was the round mirror, it was very easy to put together and even though it's not perfect, its price was way better, like $160 less than the price of the mirror I had on my inspiration board.
