Finding My Zen In A Driftwood Table

When I’m working on a project that has no end in sight (like the live edge walnut & maple bench that I’m currently tackling), it’s nice to do a quick build that brings me a moment of zen! I found that this week in my driftwood & hairpin leg console table! It’s so beautifully simple & makes a¬†huge impact on our patio! Too bad every time I pass it, I want to go to the beach instead of work on my bench, lol!! ;)

Add Character To Furniture With A Vintage Map

stella_decoA while back I refinished the gorgeous little French Provincial table seen here, but thought that it lacked something… I didn’t know exactly what until I came across a vintage map of London at a thrift store & light bulbs lit up above my head! What better map for a piece with French styling?! So, I decoupaged the map, glued some simple chain around the edge to give it a finished look, and voila! Easy peasy!

I think Stella is now complete!

Is there anything you wanna stick a map on?!

DIY Chalkboard Door

Photo Jul 12, 4 34 26 AM2Here is a super simple do it yourself project that will add some character to your kitchen! All you need is painter’s tape, newspaper, chalkboard spray paint, and of course, a door in need of a revamp! First, tape off door to protect area that you don’t want painted, then spray your chalkboard paint to the can’s specifications. While the paint is drying you could make a chalk holder that vibes with your kitchen’s decor. I found a yard stick thing a ma bob holder at a thrift store, cut off the ends, and nailed it to the door, turning it into the perfect chalk container. doorhow

Taaaaadaaaaa!

Now my family has a cool place to write reminders and lists on the top half, while my little guys love to draw on the lower half of the door!
