    Shiplap, Yea or Nah?

    I’ve heard both sides of the argument. Yea or Nah on shiplap? I’ll be honest, during our deciding process I totally lost sleep over it. I’m an over thinker and analyze everything. EVERYTHING.

After researching both sides, studying pictures of people who have it and losing sleep, I finally made a decision. Yea. I like shiplap. Here’s why! Texture I’m all about adding an extra layer of texture to a room. Welp, shiplap definitely brings a neutral texture to any…

    How to Shop at a Vintage/Antique Mall

    My love for antiques is serious. I had my first antique booth when I was 12 years old. The owner of the store rented built in shelves that were in the aisle. ☺️ From there, my love (obsession) grew. My mom taught me how to develop an eye at an early age. Over the years, I’ve learned some people feel overwhelmed while antique shopping. If that’s you, these tips might help you! 🙃 😉 Don’t Rush If you’re low on time, that’s not your day to shop.

    Dresser Makeover / Chalk Paint Tips

      Last week I found a vintage French Provincial dresser for only $40.00. 🤑 I knew immediately it was meant to be for my bedroom. Here’s how I fixed it up!! Deep Clean A lot of times these older pieces have been in storage sheds or garages, so they’ve collected many years of dust and dirt. 😷 I usually remove the handles and spray my furniture really well with Mrs. Myer’s All Purpose then allow it to sit for a few minutes. (Mrs. Myer’s does most of the work.) Paint I use several different types of chalk paint but for this piece I used my favorite, Old White by Annie Sloan.…

    When a Picker Finds French Provincial

    As a picker, I never know where the job will take me or what I’ll find. Last week we found ourselves in a small shut down factory town, and we hit a French Provincial goldmine in someone’s shed.

I handed the owner some cash, loaded that baby in the truck and brought her home for some TLC. Like many of you, I’m a fan of French Provincial furniture. 😍 No doubt, it makes my heart beat a little faster. (You can totally imagine my emotions during the movie Beauty…
