A Garden of Beauty

This piece was the collision of the perfect piece of furniture and the perfect transfer.  I knew immediately what I wanted to do with this bombe chest when I bought it.  I didn’t know the journey would be a challenge! It needed some repair so I spent one...

Crafty Boo! and Iron on Decoupage

I love it when I have time to work on small craft projects.  It’s fun and quickly satisfying.  I saw these adorable Halloween pictures on Facebook and decided I wanted to make a few. So here’s what you’ll need if you want to try these yourself:...

File Your Cares Away

Who says file cabinets have to be sterile and bland?  I knew when I found this one that I could turn it into something special!  File cabinets are really a blank slate that you can do anything with!  So I started off with a good clean with TSP.  I love that I...
