Before and After: End Table Makeover

Greetings, friends!  It's been a busy several days with work and our Legacy Benefit Dinner and some fun time with friends, so I am dragging this week!  It's been a while since I shared a furniture project, so I thought today was a good day to show you this end table makeover. A friend of mine {practically} gifted this pine end table to me several months ago.  It took me a while to decide how I wanted to refresh it so it sat in my garage until … [Read more...]

Laundry Room Refresh: the Reveal

Hump Daaa--ayy!  Hope your week has been going well, friends!  I'm working my little tail off getting ready for our Legacy Benefit Dinner on Friday, but I couldn't wait any longer to share my newly refreshed laundry room.  It's truly amazing how simple changes can make a big difference! Confession:  this project took longer than we thought it would.  My house is 30+ years old and so lots of little things revealed themselves when we dug into … [Read more...]

Hallway Laundry Room Inspiration

Well, we're immersed in getting our little laundry room refreshed... amazing what some fresh paint will do, right?  If you've been following on Instagram you've seen some progress! But today I thought I'd share a bit of inspiration I've been collecting for this space for... well, quite a while now.  Like I said, this project has been a home goal for 3 years running.  #yikes Just for reference, here's where we've started... I would … [Read more...]

Project Sneak Peek: Laundry Room Refresh

Hi there!  I hope you're enjoying your week so far.  It's been nice to be out of school so I can tackle some of these refresh projects we need to do to get the house ready to sell.  Ever wonder why we wait until we're ready to sell to get these things done??? Yesterday I jump-started the laundry room refresh that has been loooonnnnggg overdue.  If you follow me on Instagram you know I purged the cabinets and cleaned it up a couple of weekends … [Read more...]

Five on Friday: Valentine’s Day Edition

Whew, TGIF!  With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it seemed only fitting to have today's Five on Friday be all about the Valentine, right?  I'm not one for decorating for this day, but I have a few fun things to share that should make your day extra special! 1.  This playing card wreath... I love this idea!!  And just think, it's the perfect project if you have a deck that's missing a few cards. :) Refresh Living 2.  This sweet love … [Read more...]

2016: Highlights and Lowlights

Where to begin?  Now that I'm finally catching my breath a bit, it seemed like a good time to reflect on 2016 before turning the page to the new year... and I'm READY to turn the page! 2016 was the year of change around here... One of the biggest was opening our preschool after quite the journey.  This time last year I was in the midst of sharing our Legacy Story here on the blog.  But within a month or so, when Legacy was registering … [Read more...]

A Front Porch Peek!

Hi friends...  I've been under the weather this week (ugh -- who has time for that??) so I'm behind on my front porch progress, of course.  But I've done enough that I thought I'd share a peek at it today after all. We've had sunny warm weather so at least it's been pleasant while I'm out there, even if it doesn't feel particularly fall-like.  I think the kiddos will be trick or treating in shorts this weekend! Remember that I spray … [Read more...]

What I’m Reading, Loving, and Working On…(and a Winner!)

Thank you to those that entered my Country Living Fair giveaway!  I've put the lucky winner at the bottom of this post... October is already flying by, isn't it?  I feel like I'm already running from one thing to another, don't you?  I have to say, though, October is one of my favorite months of the year with so many festive events, the gorgeous shift to fall weather and that teensy window of time to just enjoy before the madness of the … [Read more...]

School Desk Makeover

Hello, friends... before I dive into a new furniture project here, I wanted to pause and send my heartfelt condolences to the Orlando community.  We're living in a scary and crazy time where it seems evil lurks at every turn.  I'm saddened by the way our leaders and presidential candidates have lurched into finger-pointing and political discussions in the wake of this.  Praying diligently for clear heads to prevail and for unity in our approach … [Read more...]

Refreshing the Back Deck

We've been embracing our deck-sitting season as the weather has permitted and I'm so glad I refreshed it before graduation!  I spent an entire day pressure washing... it was in dire need! And I'd hoped to get a fresh coat of stain/sealer down, but we haven't had enough days without rain yet to tackle that. Anyhoo, I decided to go ahead and plant my flowers, lay a new rug and add a bit of temporary seating for the time being. These … [Read more...]
