Hi guys!  Today I’m sharing a quick before and after turquoise beauty.  I found this magazine rack at Goodwill for $3.99 and although I didn’t have a place for it, I thought the price was right so why not?  I shared some spray painting tips last year but this distressing technique on this piece wasn’t sanded […]

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen a sneak peek of this project.  Char was so confused what I was making.  “A sign for your camera bag?!”  Haha, I do love making signs, but there was a rhyme behind this reason (;  You see, I love my command station…but I don’t love that it’s handled […]

I’m so in love with these crib mattress bulletin board podgeable clips!  They’re the perfect addition to my crib mattress turned bulletin board that I just finished.  My cool cousin gave the crib mattress to Kristi, who then moved 3 hours north and forgot it.  I took advantage and snagged it, painted it a fresh […]
