Fan-tastic! Hutch Makeover

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

When Jesyka sent over this buffet and hutch transformation I was totally and completely wowed.  Refurbishing these old treasures is all the rage, and they are easy to prime and paint, but Jesyka created something really special with this one-of-a-kind makeover.

I love everything about this piece!  Not only did Jesyka paint it the perfect robin’s egg blue (that she mixed herself), but her choice of three different knobs complement each other so nicely.  And that pop of gold paint?  Swoon.   How about that incredible wallpaper!  Love that wallpaper!  Psych.  Not wallpaper.  Shelf liner.  Brilliant!

Jesyka also added lighting and changed that fixed middle window into an operating door.   Jesyka, Jesyka, you’re just a girl after my own heart. 

LOVE this.

Don’t miss her birdcage chandelier hanging from the ceiling that’s a wee stroke of genius.   Go on, hop over to visit Jesyka and give her big props for this inspiring piece.  Bravo!

Easy Tile Removal

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

I’m working my way down my Home Goals of 2011 list, and removing the backsplash tile in my kitchen has been Priority Numero Uno. If you follow me on Twitter, you know I spent yesterday morning removing tile!  

A few months ago, I received a cordless Dremel MultiMax and I’ve been waiting to break it in ~ yesterday was the perfect opportunity.  I realized it didn’t come with the grout removal attachment so while it charged, I grabbed the attachment at my local home improvement store. 

I always do the happy dance when I get to break in a new tool. 

You too?
