Our front porch needed an update. It had metal iron railing that was wobbly and chipped cement stairs. We took an afternoon and removed the iron railing replacing it with wood posts, new hand rails, painted the cement steps white and covers up the black top walk-up with white rocks. Now it feels like the home it is- a beach house that is walking distance to the beach. We removed the metal railing, screen door, front door and lighting. Front steps were painted with a fresh c…

This is the second time in a month I get to refinish a coffee table! Years ago on a trip to the States, Hubs and I picked up a cute little coffee table that was originally a vintage sewing table. We’ve done several vintage sewing machine table makeovers now and they always get me thinking creatively. Surprisingly, we’ve never come across such a short base before!

Upcycled Sewing Base Coffee Table

This is the second time in a month I get to refinish a coffee table! Years ago on a trip to the States, Hubs and I picked up a cute little coffee table that was originally a vintage sewing table. We’ve done several vintage sewing machine table makeovers now and they always get me thinking creatively. Surprisingly, we’ve never come across such a short base before! Hubs did not take a liking to the table top and always joked about tossing it out and starting over. As if! Save for the c…

I have ALWAYS wanted a barn door somewhere in our home, but we don't have enough wall space. That is when I decided if I could have a real one, I'd turn our pantry door in to one! It was a super simple project that cost me less than $20!

Let me start this post by saying how much I loathe hollow core "slab" doors. I really do. There is not one redeeming quality about them. whoever came up with this sorry excuse for a door should be shot. Ok, maybe that's a little harsh. If you have boring, flat, hollow core slab doors you know exactly where I'm coming from, especially if you don't have loads of cash laying around to buy solid wood paneled doors. We could cry on each other's shoulders, or we could do something about these…
