Ok people. These are the types of projects I have been dying to do! Long before I had this little ole blog I was dying to makeover some furniture. I’ve been dying to sand and paint to my little heart’s content. But living in an apartment made that really hard. So now that we have a house, I am in project heaven!

20-Minute Hutch Makeover

You know how sometimes you have a piece of furniture you love and it is just lacking something? Just that one little pop? Well, my hutch is kinda like that. I absolutely love my hutch.

I love my wood to look like it has been sitting out in the sun for years and has seen its fair share of bumps and nicks {probably from me running into it 10 million times}.

So when I saw on Pinterest that you could make your own stain to create the old weathered look, I was just about jumping up and down with joy! I have yet to find a place in my area to get salvaged wood, and I’m not much of a fan of blonde wood, so this was a thrilling possibility!

How-to Paint Laminate Furniture

I have always been afraid of painting laminate furniture. I tried it before and ended up with scratches and nicks in my paint. Boo.

How-to Paint Laminate Furniture

I have been wanting an entryway bench for quite a while now. A place right near my shoes to slip them on? Yes, please!

{Eeek! Ignore all that nasty dust! Gross.} I found this old TV stand at my local thrift store for only $10 and it was the perfect size to make into my much desired bench!  But it was laminate. It was time to try a new painting technique!
