Shabby Chic Summer Bedroom: Something Old, Something New


Hi there, Friends!  With the end of July approaching, it won't be long before autumn projects begin to pop up all over. Have you noticed the stores have already started with fall decor? While I can understand how the scorching heat can make one long for the season to change, here in Texas we've got at least two more months of summer weather. That being said, I plan to finish out July with a few summer decor posts that pair something old with something new. Since it was during the holidays when I last shared my bedroom, let's start there...

How to Refresh Faded Garden Signs


Happy Wednesday, Friends! As a writer, as long as I can remember I've been drawn to words. Be it sequined pillows or painted letters on silver platters, my home decor often features inspirational messages. The same is true of the garden that I've filled with whimsical signs. Unfortunately outdoor signs have a tendency to fade over time. Today I'm sharing a simple, thrifty way to refresh them--all it takes is a little time and patience...

How to Save Thousands of Dollars with Painted Upcycles ~ Plus Updates from Some of Mine!


Happy Wednesday, Friends! A yard sale sofa, a faded outdoor umbrella and a dated oven--what do these three things have in common? For different reasons, all needed makeovers, but seemed unlikely candidates for paint jobs. Yet, with carefully selected paint, a lot of research, and the courage to step outside of my comfort zone, these projects collectively saved me thousands of dollars! When I posted each crazy unexpected paint job, I promised to share updates to show how my makeovers stood the test of time. So today I'm sharing just that--three updates ranging from just under two years to three years ago...
