  • Repurposed Headboard turned into bench

    Repurposed Headboard turned into bench

    So I’ve always wanted to tackle the headboard repurposed into bench project. Luckily, I married a wonderful handy-man who loves to help with my projects. We’ve picked up this old but still very solid headboard and it sat in the garage for a while waiting for some inspiration. Hubby picked up some 2×4’s and started […]

  • Reclaimed Wood Wall art

    Ever wondered what to hang in your dining room? Our house has super high vaulted ceilings and finding art pieces that fit our decor and style was really difficult or ridiculously overpriced. I browsed the Home Senses, Winners and the likes but could never find something that I liked at an affordable price. So why […]

  • Old Frames + Burlap

    Old Frames + Burlap

    The Nursery project was so much fun to do for these awesome friends that I had to make them a little thank you gift. There’s this Napoleon Bonaparte quote that I love and think is beautiful for a little girl and I’ve been dying to add it in a project somehow. Everyone has really old […]

  • Antique Honderich Furniture Co. Red Seal Cedar Chest

    Antique Honderich Furniture Co. Red Seal Cedar Chest

    Hubby and I found another one of these Authentic Cedar Chest by Honderich Furniture. How Lucky!! The chest still had the original Honderich stamp and the original $100.00 moth insurance certificate stapled on the inside of the lid. Just a bit of history behind these beaut’s. In 1911, C.R. Honderich and sons and August Eidt, founded the […]

  • Country Chic Occasional Tables Updo

    Country Chic Occasional Tables Updo

    After 3 weeks of toiling on a nursery crib and dresser, I needed a quick fix of ASCP therapy. (The write up on the nursery project to come!) I’ve been waiting to find the perfect little pieces to try the Annie Sloan Duck Egg and these little charming tables were the perfect project for it. […]

  • Authentic Red Seal by Henderich Cedar Chest

    Authentic Red Seal by Henderich Cedar Chest

    As mentioned in an earlier post blog, I had scored a few pieces from a fruitful auction. This is really becoming an addiction which may need to be tamed. At least, it keeps hubby busy. I let him do all my bidding for me. I tell him what I want and the max I am […]

  • Classic Paris Grey Dresser

    Classic Paris Grey Dresser

    I’ve been waiting for good daytime light to snap pics of this beautiful dresser I finished a few days ago but the last few days have been snowy and overcast. I might have to invest on some good photography lighting kits in the near future. Oh boy… hubby is not going to like all these […]

  • My Eulalie’s Sky Chair

    My Eulalie’s Sky Chair

    I picked up this chair as a test canvas for my first Miss Mustard’s Seed Milk Paint project. This was your average plain, old oak chair and I had just the right colour in mind for it. MMS Milk Paint Eulalie’s Sky… don’t you just love that name for a colour!! I do! The greenish, […]

  • Versailles Chic Sewing Table

    Versailles Chic Sewing Table

    This little sewing table was such a rare find. This unique and charming piece was in very good condition but the natural varnished pine was really outdated. It was screaming for a lift. I enlisted hubby to take off the hardware and sand down the rough edges and I knew exactly which colour I wanted […]

  • Elegant Vintage Side tables

    Elegant Vintage Side tables

    Another weekend, another project completed! Hubby and I saw these side tables last week at the auction and I just knew I had to have them. They were already beautiful to start with but they needed a fresh look. They also had little scuff marks and dings to fix. The Paris Grey colour was a perfect […]
