Two-toned dresser ~ Furniture Makeover Day

It's furniture makeover day! Once a month my furniture painting gal pals and I get together and share painted furniture makeovers with a fun theme. This month's theme is two-toned pieces.

For this piece, I painted all of it except the top in a taupe color. I used Benjamin Moore Eagle Rock #1469 in eggshell finish.

The Best of DIY Projects and a Party on 27 blogs!

Sometimes it's good to do a project by yourself and possibly a helper. It saves some serious money and when you finish you can stand back and admire your work...hopefully! There are other times where you need to recognize that a project is above your level of skills or you don't have time to finish it. That's when you have to call in the pros.

Today I'm teaming up with 26 of my DIY rock star blog friends to bring you some of the best DIY projects ever in the history of DIY. No pros required. The projects are featured at the bottom of the page. You can visit any and all of them and even add your own DIY project to the list!

Vintage themed fall decor and Fall home tour

When it says September on the calendar I immediately start thinking about cooler temps and cozy sweaters. It's still fairly hot here so the sweaters will have to wait, but the fall decorations have already begun creeping their way out of storage and are gracing the mantels and breakfast room hutch. If you follow me on Instgram or Facebook you've been getting sneak peeks for the past couple of days.

A few ideas for fall decorating

I know, I know. It's only the first week of September but I'm ready to add some fall decor to the house and definitely ready for this heat to be gone. I haven't gotten too much of our fall decor out yet but here are some of my favorites from the past couple of years. I'll share this year's version next week so stay tuned for that!
