"The Other" Purple Chair Makeover

Let me introduce you to my other purple lady, the one on the right.  She has fantastic curves, tufted design, and itchy, scratchy indoor/outdoor carpet-like upholstery.  Wait....those things don't go together, right?

Can I just say that this chair was so uncomfortable that not one of my 6 kids, my husband, or me, wanted to sit on either one of them with thin clothes or bare flesh touching that fabric...ouch! No wonder someone sold them.

This pair had completely different lines and spoke to me in different vibes.  The one on the left looked to be farmhouse girl, while the other just screamed, "Dress me up please!"  You didn't know furniture can speak did you?  tsk.

What's YOUR Prodigal Piece? Link Party #5

Welcome to the party!  

I hope you've had a good week and are having a spectacular fall as well are here in the northeast.  I couldn't ask for a more wonderful display of color with the trees all aglow.

Last week had the privilege of joining up with a fantastic group of bloggers that partake in a themed furniture makeover once a month.  This month's theme is "words/letters".

I had a blast with my project and hope you'll take a minute to stop by and see all the wordy goodness here.

Sometimes my projects are in my head and sound good to me, but I never quite know how they're going to turn out.  It's sort of fun that way, especially when it all gels together.  Here's is one of those types of projects.
Want the full story? Let's go back to the beginning.

Bathroom Makeover DIY Farmhouse Style: Part 1

In case you noticed I've been a little scattered lately, it's all for a good reason. Back in August, we finally gutted our bathroom - our one and only bathroom for a family of 8.  Yikes!  I can't believe it's been that long already.

We aren't just a tad busy, but busy like nobody's business busy.  Do you think it's done yet?  No sirree.  By this time I had hope to share with you the completed project, but since that won't be happening anytime soon, I thought I would share the beginnings of our remodel.

The Boutique Showcase #48: The Linky Party Featuring Your Online Shop

Welcome to The Boutique Showcase!

I have a confession.  I actually bought some Christmas crafty stuff the other day.  Ack!  Can you believe it's already time to start working on holiday stuff? How about you?  Have you snuck some tinsel in your cart?

Since it's still fall, there's some fun harvest parties to be had and what better way to entertain than by creating your own personal snack stand equipped with a cooler that drains?

There was lots of vintage goodness at last week's showcase!

DIY Repurposed Snack & Beverage Stand

A few weeks ago I shared this picture on my social media, asking what did anyone think these items would become.

Some had said a light fixture, others a planter or some sort of laundry basket.  I guess no one was as crazy as me to think that I could turn all of that into a cooler/ice bucket/snack stand.  tsk.
