Once the walls had been painted, the furniture given makeovers, and decorative pieces put in place, it was time to organize! Since this room is used both as my craft space and our home office, I needed to find efficient ways to blend the two. I started by clearing out every drawer in the room. Every . . .
Remember when textured walls were so very popular? There were lots of techniques out there that could be used to give what was thought of as a plain, boring wall a new textured look. Feathers, sponges, rags, and stuccoing were common ways to give a wall some texture. You can even buy paint that was . . .
Nearing the end of summer, I was in the middle of giving a makeover to my craft room / office space. I completed the room makeover, but then it was time to start posting Halloween, Autumn, Thanksgiving, and Christmas posts. So, my room makeover posts went into the queue for later posting.

I took a bit of a break in posting more of my Coastal Bedroom Makeover, but I have a few more projects to share. Giving makeovers to the dark, dated furniture in my guest room was the best way to give the room its coastal feel. Since buying new furniture wasn't in my budget, the way to get . . .
As part of giving one of our guest rooms a coastal makeover, I knew I wanted to paint the furniture. I debated on the color choice, trying to decide if I wanted the pieces to be done in white with colorful accents or if I wanted to paint the pieces the sea foam color and have white accents.

You all know that I love to paint furniture. I especially love to use chalk paint to give old furniture a new look. But sometimes, painting is just not the way to go. I've been searching for a sideboard for my dining room for a while. I knew what I wanted and I knew what my budget was. . . .
