Trash To Treasure~

I've been looking for a little night stand for J's room. I thought for sure I would find one that I could fix up at our town's community flea market..but..no such luck. I did find some great things however, I did not find my little end table. So..what is a girl to do? Pick up someones curbside trash. Desperate times call for desperate measures...

This chair is getting a makeover and its going to be transformed into a little end table.




So..first I took off the ladder back using a screwdriver to unscrew the screws and then using a hammer to bang on it because it would not budge.


When I finally got the back off, I filled in the holes with wood filler. Once it dried I sanded the area down to make it smooth. Then, I continued to lightly sand the chair all over to remove all the dirt and yucky stuff.
 


Then, I painted it red..




And the end result..a charming little end table to place our books on so they don't end up on the floor after story time. :)

Fall Mantle

Our Fall Mantle...
I just bought the brown candle stands at a garage sale.. both for one dollar. I think I'm gong to paint them white. An urn with handmade moss ball and faux pumpkin. It's actually a Halloween pumpkin, it says Happy Halloween on the back.  Turn it around and nobody will know :)

I love stacked books..I have stacked books everywhere. They don't have to be fancy or anything, I just turn them around so only the side with the pages are showing.

A pine cone my sweet J gave me :)

A little turkey plate I bought at TJ Max.


Happy Fall Decorating :)
