Painted Bedside Tables

  The last time I was in the US, I was thrift shopping and found 2 bedside tables for only $12 a piece, (even though I didn’t live anywhere near the thrift store, and couldn’t take them back to Korea with me,) I just couldn’t fathom leaving them there when they spoke to me, and…

Milk Paint Stool

So I have a stool that I think EVERY person in the world needs. I certainly didn’t discover this stool, (as it’s from IKEA) But trust me, if you don’t have one, you NEED one. It will be the best $15 you have ever spent.  I have had this stool in it’s original unpainted form…

Our Couch Saga

As part of our move we are getting a new couch, the current couch in our house is a leather one that sucks; seriously it is the worst, it’s only 3 years old and has a sag in the middle, the leather is peeling and worn, and the frame in one arm is cracking. We…

Emmie’s New Dresser

Last Summer I posted about the turquoise dresser I refinished for Emmie, (now sold on craigslist because it would have taken up too much horizontal space in Emmie’s room in S. Korea) and then a few days ago I posted about another sold dresser from her room, the purple vanity, (which didn’t give enough storage on its…
