Surprise Party Pics (80′s Theme)

I’m finally getting the pictures up! My husband turned 30 and we through him a surprise party. It turned out great and he loved it! The fist thing he said when we pulled up was, “You let me wear this?” Yes… I let him wear that because every time I tried to get him to change into something decent he complained because we were “just going over to his uncle’s house!” =) Read The Rest

Beckie at Infarrantly Creative ~ Guest Post

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.IMG_1298
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!
IMG_1538I found a vintage TV cabinet left for dead on the side of the road.TV cabinet After removing the TV and making a few adjustments it is gorgeous as a console table in my entryway.
IMG_0825I 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.


I want to invite each of you to my house. Come visit me at:
