This time every year, I start thinking about Christmas Decor.  I start looking on Pinterest and Instagram and see all of these beautiful Christmas Trees, and while I have purchased a few of my own, I have always wanted something that is a little more unique to our home style!   And I love Christmas Trees as much as the next person!  BUT… I don’t want my house to look like everyone else’s.  Because who does?

    Best Homemade Sloppy Joes Ever

    Is there a recipe out there, that no matter when or how you make it, everyone enjoys? For me, it is my Homemade Sloppy Joes! These babies are delicious and have such good flavor! This recipe has been tweaked multiple times until I felt that is was perfect. Cooking for me is a way to feel relaxed, which is actually how I feel when I am painting furniture too! So, finding a recipe that I can do from heart, and to be honest, I don’t need to measure (I put measurements for those who need them!) is very relaxing to…

    Refinishing Mid-Century Dresser

    Today I am going to show you How to Refinish a Mid-Century Dresser It is over halfway for the One Room Challenge! This week’s project included the refinishing of our mid-century dresser and chest, and it has been so much fun even if it has made our bedroom basically an absolute disaster! I have been putting of the refinishing of these dressers for mainly one reason. The excuse to hold off on pulling all of our clothing out of the drawers. But, all joking aside, the refinishing part has been a lot of fun, using new techniques, painting with chalk…
