Furniture Makeovers and more

Lately it’s not that I don’t have a makeover, it’s that I don’t have time to share the makeovers.

Here are a few of the “coming soon” projects.  The next time you see them there will be before and afters and more details 🙂

ocean blue

Meet  Deep Ocean Blue, I purchased him at an auction.  He’s a very cool 19th Century stepback.

He looks great in Annie Sloan Aubusson Blue with nautical hardware.


orange desk

I’ve been itching to paint something orange.

Guess who volunteered.

A cute little desk, I can’t wait to share the finish with you 🙂


A newer Bassett dresser makeover, distressed and waxed to perfection~or near perfection 😉



A new adventure and little dresser, more details coming soon.


No more carpet in the bedroom.

You don’t know how happy that makes me!


I’ll be sharing a photo project using the new Mod Podge photo transfer medium!

It’s going to be fun!


Last but not least I wanted to share the latest Murphy goings on.

Do you see it?  Her left eye started to look lazy.

And it was producing more pizza crust or eye crusties.

Today she had laser surgery to remove a meibomian gland adenoma –

a benign growth of the eyelid.

She did great, she’s just been very sleepy tonight.



Now you know what I’ve been doing.

What have you been up to??


  1. Debbie, just had to visit to see what you’re up to. I’m thinking of painting some old furniture I inherited. Shhhh! I can’t let the family hear me! I’m thinking if I don’t love it the way it is now, I either try to make it lovable or pass it on to someone, who can get away with it. Ha! Love the orange piece and color, too. Can’t wait to see it.

  2. Looks like you are busy! I wish I had more time to give new life to old furniture. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!

  3. Wrangling 4 and 5 year olds, shuttling/supervising teenagers and trying to keep up with my booth! I’m in the same boat — DIYs and projects but no time to share. :/

  4. Well certainly can’t call you a slacker with three furniture projects waiting in the wings and new wood floor to share.


  5. ahhh. never enough time to do or post I have that syndrome too. Yet, you pull it off flawlessly 🙂 Love the deep ocean blue; it’s so beautiful in person!

  6. i am dying over the orange peek!!!! can’t wait!

  7. Debbie, I’d like a double dose of whatever vitamins you take! 😉 You sure get a lot done! That deep ocean blue chest is stunning. Wishing Murphy a speedy recovery! 🙂

  8. You sure have been busy Deb. So glad to hear your cutie pie is OK. Lucy’s eye looked funny to me last night. When she wakes up I need to check it out.
