Barstool Makeover

A friend of mine asked me to giver her barstools a face lift. ^_^ These are the barstools before...

And here they are after! After bouncing around several different ideas, we finally settled on a distressed chevron pattern to match the rest of her kitchen decor. I searched around for a good chevron tutorial because lemme tell you - that chevron can be tricky! I stumbled upon this awesome tutorial over at Mommy is CooCoo blog! It was so easy to understand and very helpful. It still took me most of the afternoon to get them just right but I think they turned out great! :)

Swap-n-Shop Table

So a few weeks ago I found this table for sale on my local swap and shop. (if you don't know what that is, you should!) I jumped on it right away and even got delivery for an extra $5. Oh yeah. ^_^ 

 A little bit of distressing and some Annie Sloan Pure White later....

My DIY Home Office

In desperate need of a home office for my hubby and I, I decided to hit up Pinterest for ideas! (surprise!) I was really drawn to the diy file cabinet desks so I decided to go with it. I found this white file cabinet on clearance at a Ballard Design outlet (yay!) so I snatched it up. The legs came from IKEA - only $10 each! The chairs from Garden Ridge. aka Heaven. I Grabbed a few more supplies from Lowe's and voila! Hope you like :) Maybe it will inspire some inspiration for your own home office!
