Vintage Coke Crate Wagon

We found this little wagon at a thrift store and just had to get it. The wheels were a little more orange looking and just didn't match the rest of the crate. so we took some white paint and pretty much did a white wash over the wheels and the pull for the wagon and then sanded it to give it a distressed look now it looks older and not so new.

Nautical Night Stand

We got this night stand from a yard sale it was a ugly green color with rope handles that were dirty. I kept the nautical theme in mind when I re painted it. Here how it started out.

I decided id paint it in a light gray color and paint the drawers in blue then I used wood knobs the same gray color and distressed them all a little and finished it all in clear wax. 

would be great in a boys room or beach house!

Up-cycled Benches

The other day I was asked if I would curate a clipboard for Hometalk that had up-cycled benches in it. Of course I said YES! So along with my coffee table I turned into a bench I picked 16 more Stunning up-cycled benches. To see all of them just click on the picture and head on over to the clipboard and take a look!

Please share and pin it! You can also follow me on Hometalk.

Mint end table

We were browsing around the antique mall that we have a booth at and came across this little roundish end table and thought it would be much cuter with just a little coat of paint, so we ended up buying it. It was in pretty good shape but was just that orangey outdated look. Here is how it started

I was orginally going to paint it gray but I didn't have any gray paint on hand so what i didnt instead was mix a minty bluish color. i cant tell you the ratios cause all I did was dump in paint and mix it til I like it, After that We decided that it needed something else so we used white on the panels of the end table and left all the hardware the same. 

We also distressed it a little on the edges and now it kinda looks a little frenchy, so much better now!
What do yall think?

The Green Cabinet

We found this cabinet at yard sale, the knobs just didn't seem to go with it and took away from the decorative parts on the doors and it was super dirty. so here is what it looked liked before

Cabinet was in good shape and very sturdy, needed a really good cleaning and a good paint job.
So I used Waverly inspirations paint by plaid that I found at wal mart in colors moss and mineral and little white knobs from hobby lobby. I painted the inside in white. Here is what it looks like all finished

It would be a great little island and its also on wheels!

What do y'all think?
