Drab Fab Sometimes when I go thrift shopping for nothing in particular, I find the best treasures. Not that long ago I stumbled across this diamond in the rough. Now normally I wouldn’t have looked twice at this piece but since we were in the middle of a basement reno, it was perfect. Shelving unit/wine holder for only 25 bucakroo’s. Doesn’t get much better than
BEFORE After finishing our new flooring we installed, which we discussed in the previous post, we wanted to update the hallway. What better way than to paint some big old stripes. I mean they just make me happy. That’s all there is to it. I was little hesitant at first but then I told myself, it’s just paint. RIGHT!?!? I started by painting all
So after living with this lovely slate flooring and matching mint-ish green carpet to go with it for 3 years, we FINALLY had the chance (and money) to put new flooring down. Can I get a what what!!!

I am back, a few pounds heavier, and ready to finally reveal my reupholstered chair that I bought, oh…2 years ago!!!.
