I’ve been seeing a lot of the aged galvanized metal planters around recently. I love this idea, so I went on to make my own. I had to do a bit of research to see what was used to age the metal. It wasn’t too long before I found a few different ways to do it, but one that didn’t take much at all! Lysol toilet bowl cleaner! This ages the metal very well without using a bunch of harsh chemicals like I was finding! I found a galvanized metal bucket at the dollar store for a buck! Such a […]

Thrift Store Furniture Refresh (The Chair I Bought For $5)

Thrift Store Chair Makeover

I was recently included in a wonderful group all about furniture refreshes! Each month we tackle a furniture project in need of a little bit of love and give it a makeover based on that months theme. The month of May we completed a project piece using stain. When it comes to thrifting, I’m fairly new.

It was at the last store that I walked around that I found the piece I could give some […]

Boy was I wrong! Choosing the paint colour was the easy part, it was picking the finish that was the […]

My Dream Master Bedroom Mood Board

I’ve been wanting to create a mood board for my future master bedroom for a while now. I haven’t had luck with convincing my other half that it would look amazing when it’s done. He is very plain-Jane, likes white walls with no pop of anything – me, well I love colour. It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do on your mood when it’s miserable outside. I love teal, greys, seafoam green to name a few. I remember while I was growing up the colours I chose for my bedroom makeover. My parents chose to put a […]
