Antique Washstand


If I told you I paint furniture that would be a lie. The truth is, I paint a LOT of furniture. My objective is to transform furniture that has seen better days and give it a second chance. So I'm always on the lookout for another project piece. This washstand looked like a good project piece, so I snatched it up. But after I brought it home for further inspection, I decided to refurbish it instead of painting.

Easy! How to Save a Wilting Bouquet


My eldest daughter and son-in-law gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers for Mother's Day. My daughter also made me some delicious banana bread muffins (she's a pastry chef!) but I don't have any photos to share because the muffins were eaten up too quickly for a photo shoot!

Vintage Mother's Day Table


I'm calling this sweet little table a Mother's Day table because my youngest daughter picked it up at a thrift store and gave it to me for Mother's Day. It was a bit forlorn and wobbly, but it's just so darn cute! I'm so happy she picked it out for me and it was the perfect gift!

Former Atwater Kent Radio Cabinet


Once upon a time this was an Atwater Kent Radio Highboy Cabinet. But when I found it all that was left was the base. The radio, upper cabinet, and cross support bar were missing. Nevertheless, the remaining base was just so charming I couldn't pass it by.
