I am so excited to have Beckie here from Infarrantly Creative today! She is absolutely fantastic and I just know you are going to LOVE her stuff! So let’s get to it…Take it away, Beckie!
My name is Beckie Farrant, author of Infarrantly Creative and Roadkill Rescue Hero! A what??? A Roadkill Rescue Hero? Yep, I pride myself in finding curbside castaways and revamping them into usable and beautiful decor.
Take this old hutch for example…
I flipped it upside down, added some dowel rods and a little molding and created a Pottery Barn inspired book rack for my baby girl’s room.
I found this 80’s parquet China cabinet that needed a new lease on life. It had chunks of wood missing on the sides and was destined for the dump.
So I thought outside the box and used paint sticks to cover the blemishes. Once painted you would never know the difference. Then I added some bead board wallpaper to cover up the parquet doors, a little fabric, new knobs and a few coats of black paint and she is fabulous!
I found a vintage TV cabinet left for dead on the side of the road. After removing the TV and making a few adjustments it is gorgeous as a console table in my entryway.
I have recently begun a love relationship with reupholstering. I took two vintage wingback chairs and turned them into show stopping pieces for my family room.
Since my husband and I were married, I’ve had a hard time coming up with a good bedroom theme that will be romantic, yet masculine, and something we will both really love and enjoy. I was browsing other blogs and came across an amazing bedroom at Three Men and a Lady. I showed my hubby, and he loved it too! So that is the inspiration for our bedroom. The great thing is I already wanted to go with a grey color scheme and I had a great bedspread picked out at Ikea that will go perfect with this look! I’m really excited about it. Here are the paint chips for the colors we decides on in the bedroom. Three walls are going to be Vintage Grey, one will be Charcoal Smoke, and the yellow (Del Sol) will be for some accent pieces.
Here is a picture of the room that inspired us!
What do you think?? Beautiful, huh!! We’re planning to take on a DIY tufted headboard. It will end up on here at some point. We’ll buying paint sometime this week, so I’ll be getting a few “after” pictures on here soon!
