Pretty much since the first day we looked at the new house, I’ve had the whole thing almost completely decorated in my head, it’s just a matter of finding the time, energy, and money to complete the vision in real life. But one room that I was stuck on was my 2 older boys’ room(11 and 8.) I knew that I wanted to do something a little more grown up that will transition them into (sniff, sniff) the teenage years. But I had no clear vision of what I wanted to do in there. Plus they have very … [Read more...] about Vintage Industrial Vanity-turned-Nightstand
Hi friends! It’s been a while. Remember me? Life kind of turned upside down not longer after my last post back in October. To make a very long story short, we decided to list our house, it sold in 3 weeks, the buyers needed to be in before Christmas leaving us to pack and move our entire household in just 3 weeks and find a temporary rental house while we shopped for a new home. We have been squished in a tiny rental for the last 3 months, so needless to say, there has been no furniture … [Read more...] about Vintage Valve Knob Dresser
As it turns out, I’m only going to be able to bring one truck load of stuff down for the Junkrestore Vintage Market Sale that’s going on this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, so I thought it might be good to show you all of what I have ready to go and available currently, so that if anyone who is planning on attending the sale (in Scottsdale) could make requests of items I should definitely bring with me. :) If Thursday and Friday are successful and I move the inventory I bring down, I can … [Read more...] about Current Inventory and Vintage Market Requests
Yikes! It’s already almost 11am and I have so much yet to try and accomplish today!

I’m so stoked! Then I come home and the hubby and I are loading the truck so I can take stuff down to set up at the Junkrestore Vintage Market at the Simple Farm in Scottsdale on Wednesday. The sale runs Thursday … [Read more...] about Shabby White Buffet
I have a buyer for the white bedroom set I finished up just before the Camp Verde sale! Hooray! The lady who is buying the set for her little girl wanted to have the set distressed (since with kids, it gets that way no matter what you do!) I was more than happy to oblige. (Distressing makes me happy.) I also highlighted the harlequin pattern on the top of the side table with some soft green paint to match her room. (This was a detail I wanted to add before, but decided to keep it neutral to … [Read more...] about White Bedroom Set, Shabbied Up!
So, if we don’t change our name to “Clocks R Us”, we will certainly need to change it to “House of Metallics.” Not only does today’s project feature those shiny glimmering tones, but I picked up 5 pieces for a client the other day (Hi, Dianne!!) who would like them done in a palette of (you guessed it) metallics!! I, for one, can’t get enough. Hopefully you agree with me and will keep on reading. :) If you remember, I picked up this great, heavy pair of nightstands a small while ago for $10 … [Read more...] about Antique Champagne Gold Nightstands
