New Dining Table & Chairs

Just purchased a dining table set off of Swip Swap, expecting delivery this evening. πŸ™‚ Looking forward to my next project –

I am going to reupholster the chairs in a bright and happy fabric, stain it dark walnut, then give it a whitewashed finish. Add some trim to the base and a farmhouse top. And build a coordinating bench/settee for against the wall – Something like this…

That’s the plan anyways… Here are the fabric options I am debating on as well –

I am off to Jo-Ann Fabrics to go and find something fun! It helps they always have awesome coupons. πŸ™‚ 50% off any cut by the yard fabric…

UPDATE – So the 2 fabrics that I chose are not offered on the website. I chose a beautiful blue and white pattern (which is the one I am going to be using on the dining table project) and a burlap and silver material. (Which the two chairs that will not be in the dining room will be upholstered with.)

I will be using the floral fabric for the seat cushion, as well as the back material on the reverse side. Β The back on the front will be a plain white, and I may add some tacks for accenting…


Many people tell me when I say I want the cushions white – “But you have kids” – I know. But if you properly seal the fabric it will be protected from spills and child accidents. πŸ™‚

Loving these Night Stands!

My bedroom is currently a blank slate. The walls are a Blue/Gray, nice and neutral. And I am on the hunt for inspiration on where to go with it next. Found images of these side tables on Pinterest – And I am in LOVE! I wonder where I can find this hardware?

I have grand plans for my relaxation space. It just won’t be all that relaxing until it’s completed. LOL. I’ll be stressing about all the work ahead of me until it’s completion.

You can visit Popsugar by clicking the image and seeing the page. AMAZING! Definitely a future build for me.

Up & Coming Living Room

I have so many projects that I need to get done. If I take in the full scope of it, it is a little overwhelming. Here’s the start of it…

My new home has no real furniture. None. Seriously. Β I have a sofa that I purchased on Swip Swap – (I love that site). I bought a real brown leather sectional for 500$. I feel like that was a great deal. And it is a LaZboy. πŸ™‚ And other than that, the room is empty.


You thought I was kidding… lol.

My TV is sitting on the fireplace mantel, which I hope to have wall mounted soon.

My next projects for my house are to make a Coffee Table – I am undecided on which style to build – These are 3 I found that I love on Pinterest.

I love them all, they are all beautiful. πŸ™‚ But I am leaning towards the rectangular tables because of have large the sectional is…

Then to make the end tables to match. πŸ™‚

Also, just this past week I picked up a steal on a rug from Wayfair.com. Only $39.95. πŸ™‚ for a 5×7. We shall see how it all comes together…

Furniture Remodels, Michael's Room

Michael’s Bedroom Makeover

I love this house. But starting from scratch is hard. I want to do something fun for my little boy, Michael, and he is absolutely obsessed with batman!

I already had a little tykes blue race car bed, which I have just painted black with silver wheels. (I wanted them to be more chrome colored, but they didn’t turn out that way. They’re still cool though.)

Little tykes race car redo – Soon to be BATMAN mobile

I am going to put a creative batman symbol on the front and create some great artwork pieces for around his walls. 😬

On the back wall, I am planning on stenciling out a city skyline on plywood, and mount it about and inch from the wall and add led lighting. In my mind it all looks amazing. Hoping the finished product comes out as good!

This is the the master plan, and over the next week, we shall see how it comes out. Stay posted.

Batgirl Bed Inspiration – Up & Coming

My daughter loves BatGirl. I’ve searched across pinterest and found multiple ideas for inspiration on what I want to build for her. I’m going to be pushing my creative limits on this one for my 5 year old little girl.

I found this design on Pinterest, and I am going to use this as inspiration with a little bat girl flair thrown in. Some purple plexi Glass on the sides, with bat girl cutouts. Maybe some bat girl curtains for privacy….

inspiration on Pinterest for the up and coming bat girl bed for my daughter.

It is not going to be a built in, but a free standing bed. (I am currently a renter, and I want to be able to move it down the road when I purchase a house.)

What do you think? Any suggestions?
