I recently bought a piece of furniture that was in need of a serious makeover. I got it for a steal, but I wasn't a big fan of the way it looked, so I decided if I stripped it down and repainted it, it had the potential to be the perfect side table. So I partnered with Sherwin-Williams, my favorite neighborhood paint store, to pick out paint colors and talk to an expert about what I would need for my project.
I found this side table at a local consignment shop for $18. I'll admit, it wasn't much to look at, but I really loved the metal legs and the contrast of the wood top, so I brought it home with me and took a… Continue Reading

I found this makeover tucked in the much bigger makeover Suesan gave her 164-year-old federal-style brick home, which in and of itself is pretty amazing. She tackled everything in that makeover and documents it as well. BUT when I was perusing all her hard work, this grody, tin shelf really stuck out. Probably because I have about 8 of them in various collection areas, of our house (like in the downstairs laundry room & garage) in various stages of… Continue Reading

I've had these scrap pieces of masonite for quite some time now. So I thought I'd turn them into something useful, by making these round, decorative trivets.

Our little boy was born two weeks before we moved into the Curbly House, and for the last two years - with the exception of a few pictures on the wall, his bedroom has remained untouched. For the most part, this has been intentional, because we wanted to hold off creating a space for him until we knew more about him. And, frankly, we be tired, and adding another room to our makeover list was just not in our cards... until now.
We're currently… Continue Reading
