farm house style bathroom

y’all! i’m soooo excited for this post as it’s been a loooong time coming. my pea brain has been swirling about this bathroom ever since we moved into our house last year. i originally bought this dresser on Craigslist to use as a vanity for the boys’ bathroom. but the cowboy carpenter we used for our initial […]

a gigantic shabby chic wall

well, this was interesting. we built a huge double-sided wood wall. and when i say huge, i mean HUGE. my buddy holding the wall on the right is 6’6″. this is a 12′ x 8′ wall made of planked wood on both sides. probably 350 lbs. yowza. and the fabrication all went down in my garage while […]

dyeing fabric with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

our shabby chic room is such a happy room.  the colors are pretty, cheerful, and frankly, this is the only feminine room in the entire house. with 3 boys in the house, i specifically designed most things to be durable enough to withstand Hot Wheels, baseballs, and general dude stuff. but this room is all […]

Shabby chic dresser rehab

my first furniture refinishing project. french side table.

>  A work in progress….my first antique refinishing project! Not sure how I got myself into this furniture refinishing hobby…but I think it started about 3 weeks ago when I was 8.5 months pregnant…unable to sleep.  and maybe it has something to do with the fact that we’re moving to a new house in a […]
