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!

Pink Desk



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!

One Room Challenge {W4}: Board and Batten



Week four of the One Room Challenge is in the books! I can’t believe how much progress we made this week.  This might be because I had a little breakdown on Saturday about not thinking we were going to be able to finish… Flash forward 4 days... The floors are done! 👏 The board and batten is done!

One Room Challenge {W3}: Floors and Frustration



Hiiii!  Man oh man... I am posting late this week because I feel like I've hit the wall in this project.  😭  My goal this week was to finish the floors and we almost have them done.  Which is fantastic (!!!)  but I'm feeling defeated about finding furniture/decor with all that is going on.  I went to Target, Hobby Lobby and the only Homegoods that is open and it was all so picked over...  I thought with the challenge being half way over I would have some vision for the room...  buuuut I don't.  It's fine, which actually means it's not fine but I'm believing I can figure it out!   Alright, enough whining let's look at our new floors!

Updated Hutch


Woo hooooo!  The kitchen hutch is DONE and I am totally in love with how it all came together!  When starting this project I had ZERO idea on how I wanted to this hutch to look.  I've learned that if you wait to start until you perfectly know what you want, you will never start.

DIY Framed Eucalyptus Art



Hiiii y'all!  It's been a while but I felt like I'd just jump right in with a fun and easy DIY!  The reason I DIY is either because I can't find what I'm dreaming of, or the only thing I can find is too expensive. I looked and looked for something to work in this space but finally this idea came to me!
