Our Schoolroom Renovation

Our Schoolroom Renovation

Hi Friends! With our school year coming to a close, we thought we would share some of the CHANGES and UPGRADES that we have made to our space over the past 8 months! We feel that our space will probably be one that is every-changing as we continue our homeschooling journey, but for the time being we are very pleased with how much we have accomplished this school year.

Since this was our very first year of homeschooling, we kind of JUMPED in with both feet forward. We didn’t know exactly what would work best for us, and fully expected this to be a year of TRIALS and ERRORS. This would be our year of really learning what would work best for our family, and what we were going to have to tweak and change a bit before getting into our groove.Continue reading

Time Spent In Our Workshop

Time Spent In Our Workshop

Patrick’s brother sent us this yesterday, and I think it is safe to say he has spent MORE THAN ENOUGH time with us in the shop. He has our workshop habits down pat because this graph depicts EXACTLY what goes on around here on a daily basis.

Now, off to find that MISSING TOOL I was looking for…

Shabby Chic Bed

Shabby Chic Bed

Hi Friends! Today we are introducing a brand new style of bed that we will be offering! We have been wanting to try this particular style out for quite a while now, and recently had a little bit of free time to give it a try! This beauty was handmade using all solid wood and comes with all custom rail supports. All that you need is a mattress and box spring, and you’re set!

The large panels in the center of the headboard and footboard are rough cut and offer a fabulous texture. This bed features an array of lovely, soft hues in white, tan, and pale blue. All of which have been distressed and fully sealed. This color theme would go well in just about any space that has a rustic or shabby chic feel.

We currently only have this one available in a queen. We can build other sizes per request. Prices will vary depending upon size.

Queen: $550.00

We accept Cash, Check, Paypal, and Square. (3% fee will be added to all Paypal and Square transactions.)

(Pick Up Only)

Scrap Pile Project SNEAKY PEEK

Scrap Pile Project SNEAKY PEEK

Happy Saturday, Friends! Today, we are working on a fun little project with this PILE OF JUNK! It basically consists of an OLD DOOR that we purchased several years ago for $10, and a bunch of SCRAP WOOD left over from past projects. We absolutely LOVE to save all of our usable scraps for future projects. They may have not seemed like much at the time, but once put together, they can become a MASTERPIECE!

Here is our little SNEAKY PEEK of what we have so far… Can y’all guess what our finished product will be? More picture to come… So, keep an eye out! 😉

Rustic Coffee Bar

Rustic Coffee Bar

Hi Friends, and Happy Saturday! Today, we are sharing our fun, Rustic Coffee Bar with all of you. This is a piece that that we designed ourselves to fill a NEED in our home, and has made our life so much EASIER! And as most of you know, with a family of 6 we are always looking for ways to get organized and help to save time, and this coffee bar was it!

Like most COFFEE and TEA LOVERS, we have way too many varieties and packets lying around, as well as about a million mugs that were taking up precious cabinet space in our kitchen. So, Patrick and I put our thinking caps on and started working on a design for a coffee bar.Continue reading

Double Unit Puppy Cave

Double Unit Puppy Cave

Happy Wednesday, friends! Here is a piece that we just finished for some of our very SPECIAL clients. They recently added a new, TOTALLY ADORABLE little fur baby to their family and asked if we could build them a double unit set of puppy caves. We were thrilled to give it a try since we have never attached 2 units together before.

Unlike our typical puppy cave units, which are separate, these attached units help to SAVE ON SPACE, as well as offer a nice area where dog treats, toys, pictures, or decor could be set on top. (Isn’t it great to have a piece that can be useful as well as decorative?)Continue reading

Paint Party at 10:30 p.m.

Paint Party at 10:30 p.m.

This is HOW WE ROLL during the holidays here at Chelette’s Decor & More. We have NO set business hours. In fact, business hours of 9-5 are NON-EXISTENT during the months of November and December. So, working at 10:30 pm on orders is a MUST for us.

And it may SURPRISE y’all to hear that we are OKAY with that! We are so BLESSED by all of our clients every holiday season (new and returning), and are beyond THANKFUL for the orders. So, we slap on a BIG OLE SMILE every morning and excitedly take on what the day has to offer. A positive or negative attitude is all in your mind! And we HAPPILY CHOOSE to be POSITIVE! 

Now… back to our PAINTING PARTY! YAY! Have a blessed night friends! 🙂

Our Paint Colors Of The Week

Our Paint Colors Of The Week

Hi Friends! Check out the 4 FABULOUS colors that we have been working with this week! And it may even surprise y’all to know that we are using ALL of them on the SAME piece! OH YES… HAHA! It may seem like A LOT, but we PROMISE, they look BEAUTIFUL together.

These colors are so SOFT and COOL that they give a CALMING effect. As I worked on the piece, Patrick couldn’t stop staring at it. He said that it made him feel CALM and PEACEFUL! (Hey… I am up for ANYTHING that can give us some TRANQUILITY in our home!) 😉

Once we are finished, our piece will be AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE. So, keep you eyes peeled for our finished product! We will be sure to post PLENTY OF PICTURES too!
