Furniture Remodels, Living Room

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™‚

Β  See Pretty Handy Girl’s post hereΒ where she uses sealant on her fabric. πŸ™‚

Furniture Builds, Living Room

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 Only $39.95. πŸ™‚ for a 5×7. We shall see how it all comes together…
