Staining the wood top, blue paint and a little glaze completely changed the orange wood look of this console table. Love the results! It's part of today's Themed Furniture Day and the themes is words on furniture. #furnituremakeover   #paintedfurniture

Love the paper on your tray. I still have my mothers old trays that need a face lift! I didn't think of trying something like this, you're inspiring me to pull them out:) Pinned your project for future use!

You fixed that little table right up! I'll need to remember the spray overcoat you used. I have several projects that would be great for.

A Lifestyle With Style...One DIY Project At A Time
Introduction
A move out of state gave my family the perfect opportunity for a total lifestyle change. We now live on a Florida barrier island in a small 1950's waterside bungalow. Follow along as we turn our little eyesore into a home we love, learn to simplify and happily live in a small space without sacrificing style or charm. I've got lots of vision and a big list of ideas! For us, living on the water is a lifestyle with style...one DIY project at a time.
