one of those projects.

I have this great dresser that I love the simplicity of. I just can't figure out what I like.

did not love the flowers.

Liked and should have left alone, but I didn't UUUGGGHHHH!

Thought I would distress and it turned out YUCK!

I tried to redo the bright colors and am not pleased. This dresser is going to be done totally different. It has just been one of those projects.

a touch of grey

This is my latest piano, I just wanted a nice simple design. So I went with, you ready for it? WHITE!,but I love they way it turned out. This one sold quickly. 

$6 kitchen makeover

My kids have been checking out the cute little kitchens all over  Pinterest. So I thought for my sweet gals birthday, I would make her one.

I of course do not have a before  picture but my cabinet look a lot like this one from

And the after. I wanted something simple with none removable parts.
Here is my after.

I did a chalk board on the back. I know it is a funky shape but the kids were rushing me.

Hope you enjoyed.

For Christmas this year I decided to make a few gifts for my family. One of my sisters has two super cute little munchkins(I must say all of my nieces and nephews are exceptionally cute) I though I would try to do a painting for her. I found an ugly old painting on canvas for $2, which is a way smoking deal for a large canvas. I primed it and used some homemade chalk paint to get a fresh clean look. It worked out pretty well.

These are the two photos I used for inspiration.
