Gift Wrap & Hardware IKEA Rast Hack

Follow my blog with Bloglovin


Hello!!!  It's time for some fun with DIY and makeovers!  I have to admit to you that I'm a bit giddy about this project!!  I was lucky enough to be asked, along with 9 other bloggers, to work with Hickory Hardware on an IKEA Rast hack.  I was beyond happy to be able to pick new hardware, for my Rast dresser, from Hickory's vast collection online.  This girl was in hardware heaven!!!!

Distressed French Poem Desk

Hello!!!  Welcome back for another round of Monthly Themed Furniture Makeovers!  In case this is your first time here, each month I take part in a themed furniture makeover with a group of talented blog friends  Every month there's a different theme and this month's is distressed furniture.  I had the perfect piece waiting for a makeover.

Not long after we moved to the Chicago area, I found this simple, oak desk at a thrift store.   I've been using the desk as a workbench for my miter saw.  I had a plan for the desk, but the timing was never  right, until now.

Hello and welcome to this week's Something To Talk About Link Party!!  It's been a busy week around here, trying to finish up some old projects and get started on some new ones.



This week I finished a stenciled and painted bench project.  I love how it turned out!

 I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  I'm sure if you're anywhere near Illinois, and so many other parts of the country, you're ready for winter to be DONE!  I'm ready to work outside in the garage with the doors open, while listening to the birds chirp.  I know spring must be on its way!
