Trash to Treasure Side Tables

If you’ve been following me at all, then you know my husband has found some pretty good things at the curb waiting for the garbage trucks.  Like this Trash to Treasure End Table, This Bench, and these Wicker Chairs!  I, however, never have much luck in this department.  That is until a few weeks ago when I spotted THESE! The day I found these was trash day, and consequently as I was leaving my neighborhood,…

Before and After Home Tour

Today, I am joining a group of bloggers for a fun Before & After Home Tour. If you have been following me for a while then you may know that we completely gutted and redid our house! When we bought this home back in 2015 we knew we were in for a LOT of work. It was very outdated and hadn’t been touched since it was built in the 80’s. We decided to gut the…
