Guess what day it is??? It's themed furniture makeover day! For newcomers, this is the day where once a month my furniture painting gal pals and I all give a piece of furniture a facelift with a theme. This month's theme? Small tables.

Today I'm sharing a table that has a special meaning to us. It was a favorite one of my late mother-in-law and we're happy to have it in our home. She was very proud of it and kept it in front of her living room window with pretty violets on it. She had a green thumb, much like my own mother does.

Let's face it. Artwork can get expensive. But bare walls are just plain boring. So what's a design loving, DIY girl to do? Make your own, that's what. Today I'll show you how and it's so simple that you don't even need a paint brush or power tools. It's all part of our Rock Your Knockoff Tour that some of my favorite blog friends and I are participating in.

What are a few of your favorite things? I didn't realize how strongly I felt about certain collections until I took a good look around the house. After taking a quick inventory, I can tell you that some of the things I'm most attracted to are milk glass, ironstone, and alabaster lamps. There are also lots of other vintage items including mercury glass Christmas ornaments and anything with hints of turquoise. So if it's old, white, turquoise, or a shiny holiday object, there's a good chance I have some of it in our home.

There have been lots of things going on at our house recently, inside and out, and one of the best things is our powder bath remodel. This room had a 1960's green sink and toilet, carpet (yuk), and a partial wall of paneling that didn't make much sense to us. We hired the same contractor that we used for our master bath and guest bath remodels and he and his crew finished it last week.

It's that time again. The day when my furniture painting friends and I complete a themed challenge to transform a piece of furniture with paint. This month's theme? POTTERY BARN INSPIRATIONS. And who doesn't love Pottery Barn? Like you, I can't wait to see what everyone has done for this challenge!

Did you recently see fireworks and hear choirs singing? No? Well we did. And we had a little party too because OUR GARAGE IS ORGANIZED!! Yes, after lots of purging and planning and even a little painting, we now have a garage that we're not embarrassed for the neighbors to see. Hallelujah!
The back wall of the garage just makes me smile.
