5 Awesome Ways to Use Vintage Rugs!

I really, really love rugs. Just ask my sister...lol. I've lived in this house about 2 years, and I've had 13 different rugs! Thankfull...

You caught me. It's really a dresser. We're all mad here!) I love dressers. I love MCM dressers. Love Seat, Wood Refinishing, Refinishing Furniture, Affordable Home Decor, Tv Stand, Vintage Furniture, Mid Century Modern Tv Stand, Modern Tv Stand, Dresser Tv Stand

Midcentury Modern TV Stand - Painted MCM Dresser

You caught me. It's really a dresser. But whatever. We're all mad here! ;) I love dressers. I love MCM dressers. I love giving them a makeover. I love the hidden storage they provide. I paid way more than I normally would for this piece ($120), but I'm willing to do that if it's a personal piece and something specific I want. I wanted a dresser to serve as my tv stand. I wanted it to be midcentury and have some sort of detailing. This isn't super detailed, but at least it has some character…

 It's been so cold and rainy here in the PNW. It is gumbo weather for sure. I loooove gumbo, and my sister makes the best. Mint Green, Furniture, Painted Furniture, French Provincial Dresser, Refinishing Furniture, Affordable Home Decor, Vintage Furniture, Dresser, Dresser As Nightstand

Mint Green French Provincial Dresser

Hey y'all! It's been so cold and rainy here in the PNW. It is gumbo weather for sure. I loooove gumbo, and my sister makes the best. Mine is good, but I'll humbly admit hers is better. She's honestly a better cook than me..and I'm pretty darn good! Last date night I went on a dinner date, and the special was gumbo! "The chef learned how to make it when he lived in Louisiana for 3 months. His friend who is a Louisiana native shared the recipe and tricks!" Me: *spoon ready in hand* I'll take…

Ansley Designs: The Perfect Bedroom for a Teenage Boy!

The Perfect Bedroom for a Teenage Boy!

Welcome to my son's bedroom! Come on in! When Ethan was out of town visiting my sister and Uncle Father for a few weeks, I decided to surprise him with a bedroom redesign! Follow me! I was so lonely when he was out of town! Facebook ♥ Instagram ♥ Twitter ♥ Pinterest ♥ YouTube He had been rockin' the bottom bunk of his old bunk beds (check out his old room before we moved), and everything was just kinda thrown in there. His room is usually a disaster, so it was hard to get myself motivated to…

Ansley Designs: 4 Tips for Scoring FREE Paint!

4 Tips for Scoring FREE Paint!

As most of you who follow along probably know, I'm in a rental home now. It definitely needed a new paint job throughout. My first priority was to get my daughters' room looking as familiar as possible. It looks great, but after dropping over $100 to paint a room in a house that's not mine...I was over it. Facebook ♥ Instagram ♥ Twitter ♥ Pinterest ♥ YouTube So, I looked into more affordable free options for updating this home! So far, I have painted the kitchen, dining room, office nook…

Funky Mid Century Modern Dresser Makeover!

Meet Jacob. The project piece I almost didn't buy! The photo the seller posted, made the drawers look super wonky. I was like....ehhhhhhhh. The price was right, and I was actually meeting the same seller to buy another piece so I look a look at this one. Y'all! I have fallen in love!!! If you're head over heels too, he is for sale - $375! Follow me for more: Facebook ♥ Instagram ♥ Twitter ♥ Pinterest ♥ YouTube The drawers are definitely funky, but that's what MAKES this dresser! That, and…

Navy Blue French Provincial Dresser with Crystal Knobs

Facebook ♥ Instagram ♥ Twitter ♥ Pinterest ♥ YouTube Isn't she a beauty!? I picked this little dresser up secondhand. Sadly she didn't have the traditional French provincial style drawer pulls, and she was missing two of the knobs the previous owner used. So, I decided to order some glamorous crystal knobs.

Neutral Boho Entryway Vibes

Am I allowed to call this an entry way? It's not exactly a foyer, but it's my landing pad; so I'm gonna go with it! I haven't shared this part of my house at all because it was so hideous. I literally called it 'no man's land'. It had dark knotty pine everywhere. I didn't like it one bit. Because I didn't like it, I sort of used it as a garage. I'd pile up pending furniture projects, yes I stacked dressers on top of dressers. It really looked bad in here. Here it is on move in day. It's not…

Blush, Copper, and grey boho Bedroom

Blush & Grey Master Bedroom Update

There's been a lot of changes since my yellow and grey master bedroom! That was just thrown together with things I had already. I was trying to make it a bit homey and cohesive after moving in. However, visions of blush pink danced in my head! Isn't she gorgeous now?! I'm almost 100% finished. I'd still like a headboard...which ironically I found something to serve as one literally a few days after I photographed everything. I'll save that for another post! Other than that I'd like to paint…

5 Things You Shold Try Painting

Paint fixes everything. Seriously. I really believe that you can paint almost anything and it will make it better! Assuming you do a proper job. So, here's a round up of things you might not think to paint, but TOTALLY SHOULD! Door Hardware I painted the hardware on my doors in my old home. It held up pretty well! I used kilz primer and just a silver metallic spray paint. I don't remember the brand. The trick to make this easier is have some styrofoam to stand the screws and doorknobs up in…

Navy, Coral, & Mint Green Shared Girls' Nursery

The girls' room was the first one I painted when I moved into the new house. I felt like with the change for her, I wanted her bedroom to be as familiar as possible. Most of the stuff is the same from Reagan's original nursery. Of course there's the addition of another crib for Addilyn, the room is smaller, and I switched out the old dresser for a new one with cleaner lines. My personal style has definitely gravitated toward midcentury modern, but I feel like the little girls' room should be…

Fresh Mid-Century Dining Room

Good morning internet! I hope y'all are having a great new year. Thanks for taking a moment to spend a bit of it with me! I'm super motivated to get lots of projects done in this house...but that's always the way a new year makes you feel! I hope the momentum lasts! Painting the dining room is my first official project of 2018! It's amazing how a fresh coat of white paint can make a space feel more open, bright, and alive! The room was green before. Honestly, I didn't mind the shade; however…

White and Copper Dresser with DIY Handles!

Hey. Hi. Hello! I shared this photo on my instagram yesterday as a little teaser! You won't believe the before on this dresser! But first, a little back story... I bought this dresser a long time ago. Literally years. I picked it up from Goodwill for $10. It. was. hideous! But it was also solid wood with dovetailed drawers that opened nice and smooth. S O L D. And just like me, I hoarded it. Shoved away in the garage under piles of other in the middle and one day projects. Then I got…

Coral & Gold Hollywood Regency Dresser

I love gold. I love coral. I love vintage furniture. I especially love vintage dressers that are a good deal. Check and mate! I saw this beauty on Craigslist and had to have it. I drove about 2 hours round trip to pick it up. Is that crazy? How far do you travel for a deal? I've started to decrease the distance of my searches...because my free time is at a premium, and I'm not sure I want to spend it all driving! Here's the before that convinced me to drive so far! I primed this baby, then…

 It's actually a sewing table, but who uses those anymore?

Vintage Mid-Century Modern Desk

Okay okay, you caught me! It's actually a sewing table, but who uses those anymore? Me. The answer is me. Not that I really sew... lol My last vintage sewing table had a completely different look. I revamped that baby before I even knew what mid-century modern was. What I did to that piece semi makes me cringe now! I digress... My current home is sorely missing a garage. So, I'm left wanting for furniture storage space. Initially I was just going to sell it as is for $60 just to have it…
