~Trash To Treasure~ Sideboard love

Here is an old sideboard that I have had stashed in our shed
for too long and finally decided on the color.
I used a creamy white color by Valspar and sealed it with poly.

Here is what it looked like before:


The top was not good.....


And here she is...


I love how it turned out and will be using it for a jewelry display at a
local art studio which I will be blogging about soon.

I have also used the original knobs which are a rustic black color,
perfect for the look I am going for.


Have a safe and wonderful Memorial weekend!

~Antique Jewelry Holder~

Using a few treasures I picked up at Junk Bonanza last fall, I made this
simple jewelry display.

Using a sturdy screw, my husband drilled the antique muffin tin
into the top of the candle holder.

Super easy!!

~Trash To Treasure~

We have been talking about how much our 7 year old needs a dresser so......
I stopped at a garage sale the other day and spotted this old dresser that needed a little tlc.
I paid $25 for it and turned it around with some left over paint and some new brushed nickel knobs from the local hardware store.

Before...mismatched knobs and out dated.

My 7 year old, helping me sand off the drawer fronts.

And VOILA, here it is!

Have a great day!

{Gathering Grounds Coffee Shop Stop}

Today we stopped by this lovely little coffee shop located in Perham, Minnesota.
The Gathering Grounds is a sweet gift shop with unique and eco friendly items for all ages, featuring a large selection of bags, purses and the most adorable kids nook full of great finds.
Toward the back of the store, there is a charming and inviting cafe with antique tables, vintage style decor and a {GREAT MENU}.
A while back they started selling my jewelry here, and I have been hoping to stop by for quite some time now. Today I finally had the chance after spending the weekend at a local resort.
