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.
After all the painting we’ve already done… I’ve been trying to see if there might be an easier, but still really cute thing to do in the bathroom that doesn’t involve painting the whole bathroom. If you checked out the pictures, you know that the walls are a taupe/tan color. Anyway… I have come across one idea I really like and I already have some of the things I would need to do this. Check out these really cool walls decorated with empty picture frames!
I used this idea in my kitchen a while back and painted all my frames black. I still have the frames I used and I think I’ll keep my eye out for a couple new ones. If I go with this idea, I think I’ll paint all the frames white and add some white wooden accessories and an over the toilet storage cabinet. I think it would turn out really cute. All my towels could be white and tan. What do you think? Do like the idea? What suggestions do you have for pulling something like this off?
