I’ve been having a problem getting my kitchen organized lately. My pantry is a mess and I can never find anything. So, as I was exploring the oh so wonderful land of Pinterest, I came across these gorgeous labels done by Kristine over at The Painted Hive. She used this wonderful Magic Decal Sticker to create her labels & she even has a link to where you can download her labels for your own use in her step by step tutorial! (There’s also a link to where you can purchase the magic decal paper in her tutorial). [Read more…]

Oh how long I have wanted to s this tutorial with you all! Remember this cute little furniture set I finished back in March?
Hey guys, I wanted to show you a piece of furniture I just finished for my front living room project. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep it because it’s completely different from what I was originally going to do with that room, but I love this piece and just couldn’t let it go. Unfortunately I don’t have any before pics for you to see because I was so excited to get started on it I didn’t even think about it before I had ripped the entire piece apart, so this is more of a “half way through and after” sort of post.
Here is what it looked like after I was finished.
The inside of the drawers were lined with this awesome wallpaper that I found from Lowe’s. My favorite part about refinishing furniture is the details. These drawers were originally lined with this gross brown felt. It took me forever to rip that out, but I am so happy that I did. I love the wallpaper that I picked out. It wasn’t even expensive. I think I paid somewhere around $6.00 to line all drawers and the back of the hutch with it. Then I took caulk around all the edges to make it look very “finished”. I wrote another post to show you how to line your drawers with wallpaper under the attention to detail section of this site.
