The Best Dark Kitchen Cabinets & an Announcement

So, we're unexpectedly redoing the kitchen. I got a little kick in the pants earlier this week when I found out I was one of the bloggers chosen by Americana D├ęcor to test out their satin enamel paints.

Painted & Stained Square Coffee Table

Sometimes when we are out hunting for pieces I find something that looks pretty hideous, but am completely drawn to. These aren't pieces that we have been asked to find by clients or pieces that I went out in search of with a specific idea in mind.


These are just things I stumble upon and an idea hits me for them at first glance.  It's like I can completely picture the piece refinished and gorgeous. Which is an awesome thing, because typically I will ponder and contemplate and question the colors I choose.

This coffee table was one of those pieces that jumped out at me and I knew it immediately had to come back to the workshop.

Nantucket Green End Table

I always love adding green paint to my supplies list.

It has such an earthy quality and reminds me of warmer weather and growth.

The Best Rustic Modern Mudrooms

We are like so close to finishing up phase one of our mudroom reno. Literally just a couple of more projects and a little styling and we can check it off our list.

I was just on Pinterest looking around for some final bits of inspiration and thought I would share some of my favorites with you all.

Pale Mint Vintage Dresser with Milk Glass Pulls

This is a Sponsored Post

I'm so seriously in love with this dresser. It's probably why it hasn't sold. Fate works that way when you love old furniture and paint it for a living.

How to Install an Antique Mantel

At our old house we had a mantel that was disproportionally too large and off center for the space and it was impossible to style properly. When we bought our old farmhouse last fall, it had no fireplace or mantel and I was (not so secretly) happy about that. The idea of not having to deal with a gigantic mantel seemed pretty awesome. And it was, but then I got to thinking that I actually kind of missed having one and it would be perfect in our dining room (the living room is just too small).

DIY Antique Coffee Table

I've had the idea to make an antique coffee table from this old table we picked up months ago and just finally got the chance to attack it last week.
