DIY Simple Stool Makeover

We have a lot of thrift store finds in our home - how about you? Firstly because we can't walk  away from a good deal when we see one!

We bought the 29th Avenue house at the end of 2013 and have been slowly giving this 1920s bungalow a facelift, room by room: first the bathroom, then the office, and now the master bedroom! The previous owners had painted every room in, apparently, the darkest colors they could find. Considering our home has tiny rooms, even smaller windows, and we live in Cloud City, USA aka Portland, the dark and dismal vibes just weren't going to cut it. So, "Operation Cheer Up" was born.    Continue Reading
