Yellow Cubby Table Makeover

I’ve got another furniture makeover project to show you!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you may remember that my grandma passed away a little over a year ago.  Amongst some other really fun things, I was able to get some fun wooden tables from her house.  She always had one of them by her bed & my grandpa had one in his room as well.

Here is what they looked like:

I did a little sanding to the top to try to smooth it out some…
Here’s a close up of the detail on the door.  Yes, they have doors, so can function as storage as well as a table!!

Notice the past tense?!  You guessed it – I re-purposed them & love how they turned out!  I had gotten some yellow spray paint a while back, not sure what I was going to do with it.  Then as I started adding more yellow into our living room, I knew these were going to go perfect!  

Here are some more pictures 😀

I will probably add a coat or 2 of polyurathane once we finally have a sunny day, but until then we will just make sure to use coasters so as to not ruin the paint! 

I really like how they turned out!  I’m not sure if I’ll put the other one in place of the other table in this picture so that they chair is balanced, or leave it on the other side of the room next to the big couch.  We will just have to see!

It feels a bit crowded here, so I will need to do some sort of rearranging… but it works for now!

Asking for Help

So, I’m assuming I’m like many of you & don’t like to ask others for help.  I like to pretend like I’m strong & independent & can do anything by myself.  I don’t like to burden or bother other people.  I’m not sure why I think I am burdening people when I ask for help, because in reality I really like to help others, so I’m sure a lot of you do as well. 

We were talking about this very topic the other night at a Jewel Kade team meeting.  We were discussing wanting to grow in our businesses & what it takes to do that.  It’s been on my heart ever since.  I need to ask for help!  What keeps me from asking is that I don’t want to look weak or like I’m failing at what I do.  But, somethings got to change & I need your help to do it!  I need to put aside my pride & just ask for help.

I absolutely love Jewel Kade & it’s been a huge blessing in my life. 
I love the jewelry

I love the canvases

I love the sisterhood that is amongst my fellow stylists. 
I love how personal our products are. 
I love how it speaks to people’s hearts. 
I love how it shows individual personalities. 
I love that it’s hand made. 
I love being able to use this business to give back to others.
And, I love spoiling my hostesses with free jewelry!

So this is where I need to ask for help 😀 

I really feel like this is where the Lord has me right now, but I’m needing your help to continue doing what I love!  I need to get some parties booked again & ask that you would consider hosting a party!  Or let me know of other people who would want to host!  I promise, I don’t expect my hosts to buy anything – I just really appreciate you gathering your family & girlfriends together so that I can share my passion for this awesome company!  It’s still so new to MN & the US in general, that we’re still working on getting our name out there & showering women in this gorgeous, timeless jewelry! 

Do you feel like you might be interested in helping me out?!  Let me know when you’re available & we’ll get something on the calendar!  Don’t feel like you want to have people over to your house or live too far away from me?  How about doing a book party?!  Or, are you doing a fundraiser of some sort?  I do those too & will donate a portion of my profits to your fundraiser 🙂  Like I said, I love being able to give back!! 

Just let me know!

Thank you so much in advance! 

Pink Bathroom: Floor Redone

Remember my pink bathroom?!  Yeah, the one with the awesome pinkish accent wall?!  And all of the fabulous sparkle & bling in the shower curtain & fun accents?  Maybe this will help you remember 🙂

Ok, so now that we got you up to speed, remember that wonderful floor?  Need a pic again?

Well guess what?!  We re-did the floor!!!!!!!  Yay!!!  This all happened a while ago, but I don’t think I’ve posted official pictures yet 🙂

So here you go!


After taking the toilet out, we screwed down some new subfloor.

Subfloor all tacked down.

Ed spent a lot of time laying out the tiles & cutting them & numbering them so we’d know which one went where!

Adhesive went down next.

And then we could finally start putting down the tiles!

Last step was to grout in between all of the tiles.  I got to rinse out sponges & hand them to the hubbs 🙂

It looks SO SO SO much better! So thankful for a hubbs that can figure stuff like this out!

Next step will be the counter – but it’s good enough for now!  At some point we need to replace the tiles in the shower/tub too.  But again, it’s all good for now 🙂

Curtain Reveal

In one of my posts last week, I asked for your votes on which material I should use for the curtains in my living room.  I so appreciate everyone who weighed in!  I did take each vote to heart, which made it difficult to decide because so many people liked them both 😀  So, I went with my gut & finally made a decision!!

Here is the before picture:

And here is the winner!!

I know they’re not perfect, but they’re good enough for this amatuer seamstress!

And some pictures of the living room:

There’s the green chair I found last year around this time, which I mentioned in an earlier post!
I love how the living room is slowly coming together!  Some day I want to get another lamp that matches the one you can see & replace the one you can see in the mirror 🙂

A banner I made for Easter – “He Is Risen”

I’m not done with this yet, but thought it’d be fun to use one of the napkins on this table 🙂

I’ve done more updating to the living room!  Check it out here:
