Painted Fireplace Makeover!

Well I finally did it! I painted the fireplace in the living room! I was hesitant to paint it since I'm renting, and I know some people are funny about painting over "nice stone". However, when I was renewing my lease (and they raised the rent *cries*) I had them throw in letting me paint the fireplace! PERMISSION GRANTED!

It wasn't horrible before. The colors were muted, and it was definitely dingy from smoke.

5 Things You Shold Try Painting

Paint fixes everything. Seriously. I really believe that you can paint almost anything and it will make it better! Assuming you do a proper job.

So, here's a round up of things you might not think to paint, but TOTALLY SHOULD!

Navy, Coral, & Mint Green Shared Girls' Nursery

The girls' room was the first one I painted when I moved into the new house. I felt like with the change for her, I wanted her bedroom to be as familiar as possible. Most of the stuff is the same from Reagan's original nursery. Of course there's the addition of another crib for Addilyn, the room is smaller, and I switched out the old dresser for a new one with cleaner lines. 

My personal style has definitely gravitated toward midcentury modern, but I feel like the little girls' room should be pretty and sweet! Though not over the top for sure. As usual, it's a work in progress!

I've definitely crammed a lot of stuff in this bedroom! They just need lots of things! It is for sure harder to photograph smaller spaces...prepare for lots of close ups haha!

First up is Addilyn's crib, which is next to the window. I used to have Reagan there, but she'd always pull at the curtains and mess with things!

Fresh Mid-Century Dining Room

Mid-Century Dining Room - MCM, midcentury

Good morning internet! I hope y'all are having a great new year. Thanks for taking a moment to spend a bit of it with me! I'm super motivated to get lots of projects done in this house...but that's always the way a new year makes you feel! I hope the momentum lasts! Painting the dining room is my first official project of 2018!

It's amazing how a fresh coat of white paint can make a space feel more open, bright, and alive! The room was green before. Honestly, I didn't mind the shade; however it definitely didn't match my vision for this place. Not to mention the entire house...this room especially really needs a new coat of paint. The walls were super scuffed and dirty. Plus, the trim was PAINTED BROWN. *vomit*

White and Copper Dresser with DIY Handles!

Hey. Hi. Hello!

I shared this photo on my instagram yesterday as a little teaser! You won't believe the before on this dresser! But first, a little back story...

Painted white dresser with DIY copper drawer pulls!

I bought this dresser a long time ago. Literally years. I picked it up from Goodwill for $10. It. was. hideous! But it was also solid wood with dovetailed drawers that opened nice and smooth. S O L D. And just like me, I hoarded it. Shoved away in the garage under piles of other in the middle and one day projects.
