2014 In Review - The Furniture Files



I really pushed the envelope in 2014.  I did more renovations, spent more than I intended to and actually hired a contractor to do one of the major projects because I was so swamped with everything I had taken on!


2014 was an excellent year for me. I found some great deals, actually found some time for myself to do absolutely nothing, got a lot done on the house and yard and began a yoga practice (something I've been planning to do for years...)

I made over so much furniture this year that I'm calling this post the Furniture Files!

The year began with a bang when I found a hutch for $100.  My makeover made me so happy, I made over the entire dining room!

Open House Sundays #9 - Little Brags

Welcome to Open House Sundays where we get a personal invitation to tour through a different blogger's house every week!


This week's tour is courtesy of Christine from Little Brags blog.  She has touches of rustic charm throughout her beautiful home.  I really think rustic decor helps to give a newer built home that old world feeling that you get in vintage homes.  You're going to love this tour!  (and the bunny is so freaking cute...)   Enjoy!
