Updated Rocking Chairs

Updated Rocking Chairs

When we purchased our new home, they left two rocking chairs on the front porch.  The chairs were sturdy so we kept them. However, they did not go with the new paint color of the house.

A Broken Plant Stand and Memories

Preserving memories is important to me. I love to surround myself with keepsakes that remind me of family. I hold on to almost everything.(which is probably bad) I have every picture and trinket that my grand kids have done for me. Do you save tons of keepsake items?


This plant stand was my grandmothers. It wasn't in the best of shape, but because it was hers, I had to restore it.

Trashy Children's Cabinets

How I love bulk pick up week. Do you have something like that where you live? Once a month, people put out "trash" for bulk pick up. Now it is not really a week, only a day, but people can start putting out "trash" a week ahead.  The hard part is competing with the "truckers". These are individuals that ride through the neighbors looking for stuff. Mostly they want items that they can scrap. They can get money for scrap metal - usually by the pound. Most of the time, they beat me to any metal items.

Most of my collecting is done within my neighborhood.  Last month my neighbor put out these children's cabinets.

Side Table Makeover

My daughter and I were out treasure hunting when we came upon this little side table. It needed some love but I liked the fact that it looked like a mini vintage fridge. At $12 it was a no brainer.

That is not how it looked when I bought it however. It was solid but banged up.
