DIY Ikea Rast Makeover with Weathered Gray Wood Stain
Hey ya'll! So, I think I've pinned about 400 Ikea Rast Hacks, but I've never actually done one of my own. Mostly because there's no Ikea anywhere near Knoxville, but also because I love to repurpose thrift store finds (as opposed to tediously assembling furniture). But, when it came time to furnish the guest bedroom, I decided to check out what this Rast business was all about. I was pretty excited to discover that you can order Ikea stuff online, AND that the Rast was only $35. I'm probably…
White Washed Frenchy Table
I found this great wooden table on my hunt this week for treasures. Before: It has great bones and is very sturdy even though it is delicate.

A Whimsical Makeover: The Red Dresser Edition
To all of my furniture friends, Are you having a hard time finding furniture this time of year? Do you have 100 odd and busted pieces in your garage when all you need is a dresser or two? Story of my life! I had mentioned before that furniture is flying out of the shop. We are having a hard time keeping up with this wonderful problem. We have been scouring our normal shopping spots to find pieces to paint. I even traveled 4 hours away. Alas...still a bit low on painted pieces. However, I did…
