Mirror Mirror on the Wall...

Another piece I can mark off the "to do list"
After painting the mirror I decided to hang it on the wall instead of reattaching it to the dresser, I think it looks nicer this way.
Can't wait for my paint to arrive so I can get started on that armoire!  
Again, I used AS chalk paint in Pure White and then applied the clear wax. I went a little heavier with the distressing on this piece then I did on the dresser.

 Now it looks complete! We're not going to add any accessories until after the room is painted, seeing we would only have to put them away.

 Mackenzie loves the new look and can't wait for me to get started on the next piece!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

~Dresser Reveal~

One down 4 more pieces to go!! I am so happy with the way this dresser turned out, my daughter is too! I love the look of pine furniture, but this piece over the years started to get an orangey color that I was not diggin. The pieces in Mackenzie's room are our original bedroom furniture before we went and bought our new set in darker wood.

 I used AS chalk paint in Pure White and waxed with the clear wax. I didn't want this piece heavily distressed so I just sanded around the edges of the drawers and this decorative fan that's on the middle drawer.

 I did sand a little heavier on the top for a worn look.
 Now I can't wait to get the walls painted!!
 One more before & after...
 Now that the dresser is finished I'm working on the mirror that goes with it. 
Here's a peek...
 Thanks so much for stopping by, have a super week!!

My weekend project

Here is a little peek at what I'll be working on this weekend. While waiting for my Graphite chalk paint to arrive I figured I'd start on another piece with paint I already had on hand (I'm impatient that way!!)
 Have a super weekend friends!!

Taking on a BIG project!

 Miss Mackenzie is turning thirteen this year and I guess with entering the teenage years comes a room makeover! 
It's not only going to include a new paint color for the walls but for the furniture too...starting with her armoire. This was one of my first pieces of furniture that I painted.
  We're thinking of going with a black distressed look. Here's some of our inspiration pics.
These I found under Google images...

 This next piece is one of Miss Mustard Seeds. Love the black and white!
 Love this armoire from Down to Earth Style!
This next piece was a pine hutch Delores from Vignette Design had painted and distressed black. Love how she painted the inside a cream color for contrast! Another piece I just love!
I can't wait to get started on this project!!
 She wants an all white room, so having a white back drop I think a black armoire would look great! What do you think?

My first purchase in the New Year!

 I love it when I find something left at my doorstep! This was one of my first purchases in the new year.
 I know your all familiar with this store, some of you may have even visited it.
 Isn't she pretty:)
 When I saw this urn on Luckett's website in all it's red chippy goodness, I knew I had to have it!
 I simply filled it with some greenery and a few sticks.

Looking in from the kitchen.

 Sorry for the picture overload, my finger just kept snappin:)
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a super  week!

Jumping on the social networking bandwagon, Finally!

 That's right friends I finally did it, I finally started a facebook page for my blog!! Well to be honest I didn't start it my daughter started it for me :) I've been wanting to do this for quite sometime but I'm not computer savvy at all and was a little nervous.

 I still have so much to learn but I would love it if you followed (like) me along! I added a link on my sidebar.
Looks like I'll be playing around on this all weekend!!
Have a super weekend!

~Covered in White~

We woke up this morning to a fresh coat of beautiful snow! The kids had a snow day which means sleeping in late and their favorite for breakfast (pancakes).
This is what our house looked like first thing this morning.

These next pictures are looking off our back deck.

I love how everything looks right after it snows. 
How was the weather today in your neck of the woods?


A new look above the Kitchen cabinets

 I always find it so difficult to decorate the top of my kitchen cabinets. After the Christmas garland came down  it stayed bare up until a few days ago when I came up with this.

 I had everything on hand, just went and shopped my storage room for the most of it!
  I love the layered look, so I added two of my wicker chargers from Nell Hills as a backdrop.
 I left the other cabinets on the other walls bare, I like just having the center cabinets decorated(it's easier to keep clean;).
I'm liking the change!

 Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek!
