From Flood Waters to Farmhouse Fab…

From Flood Waters to Farmhouse Fab…

Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! Today we have a very special up-cycle to share with all of you! We recently had the pleasure of working with the Jenkin’s family who brought us a Headboard and Armoire that had lots of water damage after being SUBMERGED in several feet of FLOOD WATER. Typically, most people would throw these types of items out and simply purchase new ones, but this set belonged to their grandmother and she was absolutely heartbroken over the loss of her beloved bedroom set. So, they brought us the pieces without her knowing, and asked that we try to salvage as much as we could and turn them into a BRAND NEW PIECE!Continue reading

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

Up-Cycled Bicycle Planter Box

Up-Cycled Bicycle Planter Box

Hi Friends! For anyone who has ever wondered where we get our LOVE of up-cycling from… well, look NO FURTHER! My grandparents taught us everything we know. They are old-school up-cyclers…. They were up-cycling when up-cycling wasn’t even COOL! Like, it wasn’t even a thing back then. But they did it and did it well, and are still doing it to this day!

I don’t always post their projects, but this one was so cute, I couldn’t help myself. They have been hard at work making this fun little planter box to put their “Watch For Children” sign in at the front of our driveway. (They are always making sure their grandbabies stay safe)

This little bike originally belonged to our oldest son, and it made its way through 2 more of our kiddos before it finally BIT THE DUST. It actually had a little help from daddy’s truck, but oh well… they had to learn the hard way not to leave their bikes in the driveway. (It was the first, and will hopefully be the last time they will make that mistake)Continue reading

Gorgeous In Gray Dining Set

Gorgeous In Gray Dining Set

Happy Tuesday, Friends! Take a peek at this fabulously ELEGANT gray dining table set that we finished up for the Cruz family! This dining set was initially brought to us as a refinish, but upon closer inspection, we realized that the top was a very slick veneer and the paint would unfortunately not adhere well to it. So, the table ended up turning into a NEW BUILD and chairs were a REFINISH. Continue reading
