$50 Marketplace Furniture Flip!!

Check out this beautiful dresser!! We went with a chippy purple/pink color called Plumberry by Sweet Pickins. We also used our JRV Decoupage paper, and DIY paint and salt wash. Oh and lots of white wax. I wanted a super old chippy wall paper look. Lots of steps, but super easy. The full DIY just got uploaded to our channel. I wanted to do something unique and different, but something that also fit my French country vibe I love! Also it’s not antique and it’s not solid wood(it’s MDF). So the don’t paint wood police need not apply . Much love to my wood loving friends .  Dresser is sold!Plumberry Paint: https://jamirayvintage.com/products/p...​White Swan: https://jamirayvintage.com/products/w...Brushes: https://jamirayvintage.com/search?q=b...​Purple Vintage Decoupage Paper: https://jamirayvintage.com/products/p...​Liquid Patina: https://jamirayvintage.com/products/d...​White Wax:...

Decoupage on Scraps and Broken Decor

Two old cutting boards from the thrift shop turned into decorative trays. DIY paint, JRV Decoupage paper, cast iron handles from JRVhome.com and what was headed for the garbage is now ready to show off. When I’m searching for items at the thrift store, many times I’m just looking at what it’s made of and what the shape is. Then I design it in my mind.

Teen Dream Room Makeover

We are gonna swap out the rug, and I have a few more little things to do, but this cute girls room is almost done. I love creating functional and beautiful spaces for my kids. And Odelia is just about the best big sister. She and Eliza both have been so helpful while we finished the farmhouse. All of our kids sacrificed so we could complete this project. I’m happy to be able to do these spaces just for them.  Watch the makeover part 1 here: https://youtu.be/32Roy1CIklIPart 2 here: https://youtu.be/iRAoUTo9AcY Buy the wallpaper from Rocky Mountain Decal: https://rockymountaindecals.ca/produc..
