About Me

My photo
God does have a sense of humor, after years of infertility, we adopted 2 beautiful babies, I later had the "surprise baby"! In the very spare time I have, I love to decorate, paint, and make all kinds of things. I do repurpose old furniture and custom paint furniture for clients. I work with all types of vintage items. I love to make our house a home. I like to see how others do it and share what I do also. Contact me at if you are interested in any products I have posted or if you are local to Atlanta and want a furniture face lift! Love your old junk again!

Shabby TLC

   My 5 kids have been home from school for fall break, and just went back to school today! So, no blogging for awhile, just doing fun family stuff. We had a nice relaxing break. We did a camp out,  watched movies, made sweet treats, etc....I love those wild, crazy kids! Now, I am back to work. Here, are the latest 2 projects for my clients. One is an old, out dated, tv stand- turned fab nightstand. The other is an old rocker, that was handed down thru the family. It was pine, I painted it creamy white and distressed it, to emphasize the age of it. I love them both! Enjoy!

before TV stand, had a shelf that rolled out
I removed it and made another shelf

had an ugly backing that had a hole for cable wires

Replaced old back with beadboard

new shelf, MDF board...

Now we have pretty storage!

Pretty, glass, vintage knobs

Old Rocking Chair, I forgot to take before

You did an amazing job on these projects! really impressed how you replaced the back for beadboard. Adds a lot! You did a lovely job of staging them too--looks great!

Love how you redid that tv stand, Beth! I had one {pine} that was my son's in our old house. When we moved I brought it to use as a night stand in the guest bedroom. I painted it also so it would fit in better. Yours has a much nicer curve to the bottom. They do work great as a night stand, with a little more surface space.
