Another dresser makeover

This one is for the second oldest. She also has a very modern simple style, but I got this dresser for a good deal so she got to pick the color and she didn't like the mirror so we took that off. She has white and grey with a bunch of pops of different colors in her room. It is also turning out so pretty! 

The before picture to me looks like palm trees for handles lol. I tried to take the wooden flower accents over the knobs off, but they were super glued and nailed and just aren't ever coming off! It still turned out pretty cute!

Nightstand

Our oldest picked this nightstand out and was very excited for the open cubby to fit books! When I picked it up, it was a cream color so I painted it a pure white to match the room. It looks so pretty next to her bed!

Dresser redo for the oldest girls room!

We sold our house in June and only just got in a rental 2 weeks ago. I told both big girls that they can design and decorate their rooms. It's fun to see how their taste and styles have changed over the years! Our oldest decided on a white, navy, and grey room. She has a simplistic clean style and picked out this tall dresser. I had to fix one of the legs, fill a ton of small gouges, and clean it. I painted it a nice crisp white and replaced the knobs with brushed nickel. It turned out so pretty in her room! I still have her nightstand to paint, her desk to be delivered, and get final touches. I will post pictures once their rooms are finished.

Custom Chicken Coop Sign

I made this cute sign for a great client. I found this really cool old drawer front with a handle. I turned it upside down and filled the handle with cute garden items and added the message. It looks much cuter in person, but she was thrilled so that's what matters!

Small Paver Space

We had some pavers left from our giant paver project a long time ago. They have just been sitting in stacks all this time so I thought why not make a cute little space to put a bench. I added silk plants to get an idea, but will get real plants Friday.

Master Shower Update

The silver spaceship is gone and replaced with a beautiful oil rubbed bronze shower neck and fancy rain shower head. The shower neck is great because it raises the existing low plumbing. I used rustolium oil rubbed bronze paint for the nozzles and bottom drain plate. I then added a matching storage caddy and it all looks so much better!

Repurposed Retro Mailbox

My Aunt loved the mailbox I made for my mom a while back, so I made one special for her. I took a vintage breadbox that already had hinges for the lid and added a finial on top. I then made a fun base out of 4x4's and added corbels and wood accents down the middle for charm and character! Finally some paint and light stressing and I think it turned out really fun and cute!

Trailer Remodel!

I started the trailer makeover a long time ago, and am happy to say I'm finally finished! I have painted the walls and cabinets, added a little backsplash, redone the floors, re caulked the entire exterior of the trailer, did a special roof coating and the resilult is just awesome! It took a 2004 dated trailer into an up to date look. It is for sale now and hope it sells fast!

Planter Boxes

We have this large shade pavilion in our backyard and visually it was leaving something to be desired. I decided it needed some love so I built eight 2x2x2 ft boxes. I built them around the existing posts and put boxwood plants in them. I also converted a regular chandelier into an outdoor one with remote candles and it turned out really cute. The after pics don't do this justice!! I'm in love with how these dressed up the back! A special thanks to my daughter Kirra for all her help choosing the plants and planting them ❤

Stunning Antique Bed

I was lucky to find a lady selling this bed. It needed a few fixes to make it useable so I worked my magic and it turned out beautifully! It sold in just a few days! One day, when my girls are bigger, I will get beds like this with the curved footboard.

Vintage Mailbox

My mom wanted a fun mailbox for her home so we found the perfect vintage box at an antique store. I attached it to a cast iron base and added back plate to the top of the box to add height and visual interest. It turned out pretty darn cute!

We finally got the house painted, shutters and lights up, and landscaping in. It's amazing how much of a difference those few things make! 







Thursday, June 16, 2016

So it took 2 years and much convincing, but I finally got the go ahead from my husband to convert a breezeway into a 4th bedroom for our growing family! (Or to sell our house and get more value) 
For those of you who don't know what a breezeway is, you're not alone. It was a pass through built with the house, that went from the front yard to the back yard, that's inbetween the house and garage. When we bought the house over 2 years ago, a previous owner had walled this up, so we had an additional patio sliding door in the dining room that we would have to go through to get to the garage. 

Now we've extended the laundry room to make a longer hallway/mudroom area to walk straight through to the garage. We also took the patio slider out and added a bedroom door, framed in a bedroom, and added a cute window with closets on either side. It's still a work in progress, but is coming along beautifully!  I will update pics as the rooms get further along. 

Here's how the outside of the breezeway looked when we bough the house.
Here is after with the door taken out, the stucco texture matched, and matched the bottom brick. 
Here's the patio slider off the dining and the other door goes into the laundry that we never used.

The stucco was removed, took out the door going to the front yard, added insulation and raised the floor to match the house height. 
Closed in patio slider.
The door to new bedroom where we extended the wanescotting to make the old slider opening dissapear! 
I love the look of closets on either side of a window so we made it happen with this addition :)

LOVE my closets! They turned out so cute and I found a perfect bench to fit inbetween! Now they just need some paint.
