Why I Prime!

I can’t tell y’all how many times when I post a priming video that I get the question “why are you priming? doesn’t that paint require almost no prep?”.  You are right, most of the paint I use doesn’t require a lot of prep!  So why do I prime???

Faux Fireplace




Hellooooooo!   I wanted to share our newly updated entry room with y’all!  This room has had a bunch of different looks since we moved in 6 years ago and I think this look is a close second favorite to the blue carpet. 😉

Cane Cabinet - Furniture Flip Challenge



This cabinet makeover was a part of the Furniture Flip Challenge and was such a fun makeover! Let me just start with how I got the cabinet.  I found it on Facebook Marketplace for $60 and was sure that I would paint it black on the outside and white on the inside.  I offered $40 and the seller told me it was already pending pick up.  I was SO bummed!  He messaged me the next day saying that it didn’t get picked up and I could have it!  Woohoo!  When I picked it up I was so surprised/sad that it was missing a glass pane.  Of course I didn’t say anything because I am so awkward at pick ups (I am getting better though!)…  We load the cabinet and I get back in the truck and look at the listing.  Not only is it obvious the glass is missing in the picture but the description had included that info.  I was so embarrassed!  Such a rookie move!  The cabinet sat in my laundry room for months because a) it was missing a glass pane b) I really didn’t know if I liked my original idea.  Avoiding hard projects, that is me!

Hi y'all!  I think I might of just found the most perfect pink paint!  I cannot believe how cute this desk turned out.  😻  It started off a little rough around the edges and was in need of some serious love:

Finding the Right Furniture to Refinish!



I got the question months ago... Leslie, how do you find the perfect furniture pieces?! When I started flipping furniture a little over a year ago I had no idea what I was doing, and believe me... I have bought SO many duds.  A few that I just resold almost immediately and some that I got paid almost nothing to refinish.  Now, I am not a genie but I have a few things to look for when shopping on Marketplace, Next Door, and thrift stores!

Refinished White Dresser



This big ol' white dresser was such a fun project!  First off, I could not believe that it only cost $40.  I felt like I was stealing it when the couple was loading it into my truck.  Overly honest Leslie was saying "are you sure you don't want to keep this? how about I give you more money?"

Cabinet Makeover



Hi y'all! I made it my August goal to blog once a week sharing my furniture projects!  As you may or may not know it is almost the middle of August...  How?  I have no clue!  😆 I found this cute cabinet at my local thrift store for $19.99.  This was a project I had been dreaming about for months!

One Room Challenge {W7}: City Maps DIY


Hi y'all!  From the beginning of this process one of my biggest goals has been to celebrate Sean's baseball career and life so far, in a not so cheesy way.  Each team Sean played for holds a special place in our hearts and I thought the best way to display that was by doing city maps!
