Cupboard Turned Mini Bar

Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in Make

Last week I took this extremely dated cupboard that was in my parents’ kitchen and turned it into an adorable mini bar! We decided to detach the door so that the wood in the back was visible. First I applied two coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint in Pure White, topped with a coat of Annie Sloan […]

How cute is this little succulent planter I made yesterday! I wanted to give this wooden box (that used to be filled with tea) a new purpose and I thought succulents were just the thing.

I’m not really one to brag, but I am obsessed with this entertainment center I repainted and distressed! My parents were going to get rid of it because one side was damaged from water and the veneer was peeling off, but I decided to give it a face lift instead! This is my second time using Annie Sloan […]

Recently I’ve been working on this DIY t-shirt blanket. The first time I made a blanket like this was in high school in my fashion design class. I absolutely love my first t-shirt blanket because it is warm, cozy, and and comfy like a t-shirt. Since high school I have washed my other blanket time after […]
