Take a Seat!


Yes, that is carpet you see on this bench....  after carefully removing quite a few staples, I was able to remove the carpet & place it in my garbage can where it belongs! 

The bench got a fresh coat of paint (wish I could say the same for my deck ~ ick), and then some dark wax to achieve the old, weathered look!  Quite an improvement!

My Mantel Redo

I haven't posted FOREVER!!  This summer has been crazy & busy, but I'm making a deal with myself to take more time for furniture & redo's starting today!

My fireplace mantel was very uninspiring, so I thought to jazz it up I would paint it a fresh coat of Annie Sloan's Antique White Chalk Paint.  I distressed it a little & really like the results ~ it now seems to pop, rather than blend in!
