Everyone has always associated gray with depressing. It's like Eyeore's color and when the sky is sad it's gray and etc, but as of late gray has really transformed itself into one of the most refreshing colors of them all. Especially paired with the right colors or accents gray can really be a standout choice! Take for instance this drabby depressing nightstand that I found sitting all alone at the Habitat for Humanity. I took it home sanded it down, cleaned it off and painted it gray. I added a few decorative pieces and spray painted the pull black and now it's anything but depressing!

I love this re-do for the mere fact it's the American Flag, and...wait for it... a table! Also I'm keeping this one and I paid 1$ for it. All good things wouldn't ya say?

What can a gal do with a coupla bucks and a little free time on her hands? Well if you're creative and love to make cheap things that look expensive you can do a lot! Went to the dollar store and picked up a few items and went to town!

www.betterafter.blogspot.com for some hutch/dresser/vanity ideas. I found one that I loved and then another and then I sort of combined the idea. I dressed her up as if she were in a dining room or kitchen as well as a bedroom. Hope you like it as much as I do!

So I was gifted this awesome sofa table and pair of lamps. I liked them, but I'm sorta into color in case you didn't notice. I loved the fabric I had on the chair and decided to change up the color a little and match the new blue on the sofa table. Then I took some leftover fabric and hot glued it onto the little lamp. It makes me smile every time I open my bedroom door and see it in it's little nook waiting for me to admire it! Hope you like it too.

I was very lucky and blessed to be given this cute end table and her sister for free. It's sturdy and woody and eighties all in one. So since most of my house is brown, floor, furniture and decor. So when I got this sweet little ditty I decided to give it a facelift. Didn't use a sander on the legs but did extensive sanding on the top. When I was finished painting I then sanded down certain parts to give it the aged look and added the stain there and then thinly (and quickly) I stained the rest of the the end table to give it the full antique look. Hope you like it as much as I do!

So since I last posted I packed up and moved 2000 miles away to S.C. and have found a goodwill and am starting my new collection of old stuff remixed. Because I moved my husband explained to me over and over that we should sell EVERYTHING we owned and it would be cheaper and easier to move across the country.. .He was right but now I have no furniture. He then reminded me that we know this person who re-does furniture as a hobby and that we could furnish our house with her creations.. so here goes my first new re do for myself. Hope you enjoy it!
