Upcoming DIY's

How is the New Year treating everyone?
It’s been pretty good for me- thus far.
I’ve made a list of goals that I would like to accomplish this year.
Some top things are:
-Budgeting a little more hardcore.
-Get more “readers”.
-Be more involved in the Design Community in town.
-Make friends in Texas (sad, but true.)
Also- In the upcoming weekends, I plan to work on some DIY projects.
 Spicing up my Grandma's Jewelry Box
I plan to stain it darker and spary paint the knobs silver.

Coffee Table- To Bench
This Goodwill find- will soon become an upholstered bench that I will use in my bedroom.
Still looking for the "perfect" fabric though.

Mid-Century Office Chair
I found this lovely chair in San Antonio over the weekend at an antique shop.
I will be painting it black in a very high gloss finish.
And recovering it with a bold print.

I can't wait to update you with the finished products.

What are your goals for this year? Do you have any upcoming DIY's?
I would love to hear about them.

& Remember- If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.

  1. i really like the jewelry box project idea. but, you may be better off going with new stainless or chromed handles rather than spray painting the existing ones. even a good spray paint job will cause the hinged handles to stick and not move as freely

  2. Thank you for the tip Dustin.
    I thought about changing the hardware out for something new. But I can't figure out how to replace the old ones. The screws aren't visble in the drawer.
