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!

3 Dressers Done 3 Ways

 I was given 3 dressers from a client, 2 were very old and one was in poor shape, but I love making stuff good again so this was total satisfaction. She had a massive, wood dresser in her master that has a huge mirror attached, heavy wood etc...the other 2 were from her husband's childhood and I did those masculine for her teen son.  Here they are, restored glory....enjoy!

first chest, turned sporty TV stand!

golf is the theme for the teen golfer!

stripped orange wood top, opted for ebony stain
to go with black body...cream knobs and lettering

i love this top! ebony wood, yes please....

I like this for myself....

too orangey, dark and heavy for her room...

you will get new hardware too!

Hello Lovey.....

Light, bright, and airy and feminine...
Girls, it's your room too, don't be afraid of
elegant...He really doesn't care....

this is much more my client's personality...

new, oil-rubbed bronze hardware...

a new/old mirror hanging above is  also more suitable here..
                                             This room got a little bigger just from this change....

Pallet Love

I have been inspired by all the pallet stuff on Pinterest and decided to put my spin on some pallets. I thought these could be cool for a lake house or in front of a fireplace or hanging on a large bare wall.....My hubs found me a couple of larger size pallets and I made a template of a deer silhouette I liked on Pinterest. I did one with a deer and then I did the lake letters and background on the other and my hubs painted the canoe. I have sold the canoe but we can make more! I have a few more designs I am experimenting with so, I will share those later. Thanks for looking!

Maybe put this on front porch for Christmas!

or fireplace screen...

or in a boys room.....or back  porch/deck/wall hanging

31 days of Women of Authenticity has ended. If you took the time to come here and read any of these posts, Thank You! You were a part of this too!  As I look back over the past 31 days, I am beyond words. A challenge to write and stay on topic for 31 days turned more into a personal journey than I could ever have imagined. It feels like a revival in my heart. I am so glad I listened to God's prompting. Reading the stories of all these incredible women have been inspirational and healing.  For each journey revealed could not take place with out His hand, could not find a resolve without His hand, and could not impact others without His hand. He has been real and touchable during this series in ways I have not seen before. Every trial and tribulation and triumph over obstacles can only be credited to His work in the life of each person, who shared here. If I did not know Him before, there is no way I couldn't now. If you did not know Him before, you have met and seen his works full well. The main point I have taken away from 31 Days goes back to this verse,
    Romans 8:38-39
    For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
  I want to thank each and every woman who participated and agreed to be vulnerable for God's glory and work in the body of Christ. You are all so precious and beautiful and gracious. It was a privilege to work with you on this. To explore authenticity in the lives of these women, is to meet the one who made us authentic. A reflection of Him. To be a daughter of THE KING, is the greatest thing we could ever be. He is irresistible and captivating. He has captivated us......
