    AMAZING Chalk Paint Transformation/Recipe

    Painting furniture is the “in” thing now!  Paint is the easiest way to transform a room and furniture is no exception.  Finding pieces to refurbish is exciting because it’s such an amazing transformation on a smaller scale.  Please note, that there are pieces that I would never venture to paint simply because they are antiques and should be refurbished into their original state preserving the beauty of the craftsmanship.  That’s a post for another day.

    Ceiling Medallion DIY 3 simple steps

    Anybody that creates feels a sense of satisfaction!  Standing in the kitchen and creating a new dish is satisfaction for some. Singing or playing an instrument may bring someone else a sense of fulfillment.  For me…its creating art!  When I say this is the easiest DIY ever, I mean it.  People have PIN’ed this hundreds of times!  (Check out the image at the end to PIN to your own boards!)
