Our bathroom vanity.  It got a makeover and a brand new life.  You can read about the transformation in this post.

The floor in one of our basement rooms.  I painted over a hideous 60’s floor using pinstriping tape, floor paint, and glaze.  You can get the details of this project here.

Just a little piece I picked up at the thrift shop and transformed. 

An estate sale frame that needed a new home and got all prettied up to be used as a jewelry bulletin board for one of my daughters.  How to and details can be found here.

Our family room mantel.  It was white when we bought the house.  And the walls were 1960’s paneling.  Both the mantel and the walls, along with the trim and the trim on the mirror got a makeover. Pictures of the finished room are here.

My little corner of the shop.  Part of it anyway.  I painted, distressed, and glazed the table that the items are laying on.

 Our kitchen backsplash.  We had a budget of zero dollars when we moved into the house, so I used tape and paint to create the look of tumbled marble tiles at a fraction of the cost of the real ones.  This was done 6 years ago, long before I even knew what a blog was, so there are no how-to pics.

 Master bath mirror.  It has since had a makeover, along with the rest of this room. Bathroom remodel pictures are here.  And the new look of the mirror can be seen here.

Brass yardsale chandy that I picked up for $7 and spray painted black.  I covered self-adhesive lampshades with some fabric that was leftover from a previous project.  Works well and looks ok for a $20 light fixture transformation, don’t you think?
