 Found this cabinet at a garage sale this summer, of course I forgot to take a before picture of it so you will have to imagine it with peeling green paint. Though the green paint was a perfect vintage color so I did pull a color swatch off of it for a future project!!

With a little pink and white paint, some distressing and the addition of birch branch handles it turned out really cute.  It like bringing a little of the outdoors in!

This cabinet would be perfect in a little girl's room, bathroom or craft room.


I lined the shelves with some cute wrapping paper.

Found this Magazine Rack on the side of the road in someone's garbage pile.
(Actually my husband "eyed" it, he is getting really good at junk finding!). 

I had a hard time deciding what color to paint it so I went with something that would make it pop!

I think this turquoise did the trick, makes it stand out.  Though after I painted it I realized that it has a "gypsy lamp" carved in the front. 
Wish I needed a Magazine Rack I would keep it for myself!

I found this side table at a garage sale this summer, dark wood with partial scraped off white paint, overall very tacky and need of a makeover.
But I loved the legs on the table.

I brought it home and then tackled it with my paintbrush to give it a makeover it craved!! 

So cute and perfect for a entryway or nightstand or accent table or telephone table...
oh so many ideas!!!


The top is painted a creamy off white and I lightly dry brushed the turquoise over it and then removed it with a rag so it is seen in the grain of the wood.
