Third Time Charm Buffet

When I came across this vintage buffet (with matching china cabinet and draw leaf table), I knew I just had to have it. I’ve been desiring a harmonious set for our dining room for quite some time β€” albeit difficult to find one fitting for our moderate space. Although charmed to have acquired such a… Continue reading Third Time Charm Buffet

Rocky Coat Buffet

Being creative isn’t just good for the soul, but also for the mind. It allows you to focus, and use your passions; clearing your mind of other subjects, and expressing your thoughts and feelings in a calm and imaginative way. For me, transforming furniture is my creative outlet that always brings out the best in… Continue reading Rocky Coat Buffet

Simply Bliss Washstand

I simply adore antique washstands. They are such enjoyable transformations, and oh-so versatile. Small in size, they can fit anywhere from a small apartment bedroom to a large foyer in a full size home. I was delighted to find this lil’ gal and elated that she had her original hardware… albeit so dull and dingy… Continue reading Simply Bliss Washstand

Hello My Darling

I can still hear her say it… she said it to me and to all of her dearly loved grandchildren every time we saw her. “Hello My Darling” she would say… with so much love. My darling Grandma… oh how I miss her so. Darling (noun) | DAHR-ling: A dearly loved person. πŸ’ž When Country… Continue reading Hello My Darling

Sweet Heirloom Awakening

Memories. Isn’t it neat how some of them you hold so vividly? Although I only have a single one of my Great Grandma Phyllis… it’s a very strong one, and neatly so this antique dresser that once belonged to her is very much a part of that recollection I hold. It was summertime. I was… Continue reading Sweet Heirloom Awakening

Carefree n’ Cottage Chic

Since my teen years, I have spent much of my time at a keyboard. Computer work has always come naturally to me, and is likely my best skill… what started-off as keyboarding, led to word processing, to then desktop publishing, to then (and still today) web development and design. Although my ‘beloved’ computer is work… Continue reading Carefree n’ Cottage Chic

Two Souls in One

My hubs came picking with me one day a few weeks ago… and despite my lack of desire for this antique librarian’s desk, he loaded it up… thinking he knows me better than I do. “You’ll for sure do something great with it!”β€””Nope… I don’t want it.” πŸ‘ŽπŸ» “Yes you do.”β€””No, I really don’t.” πŸ™…πŸΌ… Continue reading Two Souls in One

Cast of Sunshine

Perhaps it’s the sea of dandelions in our yard that has put YELLOW on my brain?! Or maybe it’s the warm sunny days that have me longing for bright and cheerful transformations! Whatever it is… this dainty tiger oak lowboy was a perfect candidate for a fresh and colourful restoration! My transformation process in between… Continue reading Cast of Sunshine

Patient & Persistent Bedroom Makeover

22+ years I’ve shared a bedroom with my sweetheart… cozy in a queen we certainly have been. Furnished with a handmade suite made for my hubs when he was a young boy… incredibly solid, ridiculously heavy, and unpleasantly 80’s style. Just the thought of me wanting to replace it caused a rift between us… and… Continue reading Patient & Persistent Bedroom Makeover
