I heart painting furniture

So I posted last on the console I am working on in my dining room. I took a few days last week and finished painting it. Now I am working on the top.


I chose to paint it the same dark gray that I painted my dining room table. I decided not to paint it the light gray color the hutch is, I wanted the color to pop off the wainscoting.

I used the same hardware it came with , and notice it doesn’t have a top….I am working on that right now.


I got a pine board, stained it, and I am in the process of sealing it. I will hopefully have it together in the next couple of days (right in time to decorate for Christmas!) and I will do a painting tutorial on how I painted it. I am excited for the extra storage in my room, and I love how it is coming together.

I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new home...one we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
