A little housekeeping...

I've finished a few projects up lately despite the oppressive heat that I wanted to share with you!  Paint does funky things in the kind of heat we get here in RVA in the summer so my projects have slowed down a bit but I wanted to share a few little ditties.

Class and Trash bench....

turned shabby chic goodness!

Remember my friend Jennifer's laundry room bookcase she had me to paint, knotty pine popping through and all...

Love the gray! 

Unfortunate Goodwill bamboo-ish frame...

turned snazzy memo board (if someone had told me I would be painting things gold 2 years ago I would have called them crazy...but gold is the new black...I think?!?!  If not, someone please chime in!

I've added some of these to my booth at Through the Garden Gate.  Not my friends bookcase, that would just be mean!  I already sold one of the benches (oh happy day!) but I have one more there.
So that's that!  What have you all been up to lately? 


  1. Gold is def. back! Love it and that bench is darling!

  2. You have been so busy! I love everything. I agree that gold is back! I'm thinking of adding it to my living room/office in a brushed finish. :) And I want that bench. OMG.

  3. great makeovers! love the chalkboard!

  4. I love that bench! And yes I agree that gold is for sure the new black...and also looks great with black, like with that chalkboard paint!


  5. That bench is soo cute! It would look great at the end of my bed. Too bad you live soo far away. : (

  6. I visited your space at Through the Garden Gate and lovedd it. I even took home the ladder magazine rack and a frame. I love how benches are popping up everywhere- they make a room so cozy!

  7. The bench is great. Love the whitewash. I agree, gold is great. I'm all about it these days.

  8. I love the stripes on the wall! Have you ever blogged about how you did them?! My husband & I want to do stripes in our new dining room!
    Love, Leigh

  9. Love how you transformed that bamboo frame...upgrade!

  10. You have such talent girl..I would pass those items RIGHT by and never give it a second thought!
    Love what you did w ALL of them

  11. Hi! I've been following your blog for awhile now and LOVE IT! I live in Richmond but have been in NYC for the summer. I can't wait to get back to Richmond and go shopping for some creative, DIY finds. You've got some amazing talent! I grabbed your button to put on my blog for my Richmond readers :) Thanks!!
