Tutorial on Painting Kitchen Countertops

Just before Christmas, I had decided that our not-so-lovely kitchen needed a little makeover.  We are selling our house so the option to gut out just didn’t make sense for us.  So I had decided to put my ideas and painting skills to work! Here are the before pictures… Horrific!  Not something a potential buyer might […]

Bookshelf Decorating

In my previous post http://countrystyleaccents.com/2013/01/23/fireplace-mantel/, I had mentioned that I am in the process of staging parts of our house that need some attention to get ready to be put up for sale.  We have a massive entertainment center with bookshelves on each side.  I love it and won’t part with it.  It has so […]

Aluminum Lunch Boxes

If you haven’t seen in other posts of mine in the past, my dad passed away almost 5 years ago.  I learned A LOT from him.  I looked up to him without ever letting him know how much I really did.  He taught me so much about being a good person and how important a […]

We are planning on selling our home within the next few months.  So with that being said, be prepared for posts about staging, decorating, home improvement etc.  I really don’t consider myself a “professional stager” so chime in (PLEASE) with any comments or advice. We have already cleared out about half the furniture and stuff […]

The wood veneer really was pretty, however, it had some major flaws that really couldn’t be fixed.  So paint I must do.  If you look at the […]

How to Clean Your Painted Furniture

So you went to one of those shops and found that PERFECT painted piece of furniture.  You buy it, take it home, and set it up where you want it to go, then decorate!  Doesn’t it look GREAT!  One of the questions I get a lot when selling my painted furniture is ‘how do I […]

Thrift Store Challenge

I don’t buy vehicles, I don’t buy shoes, I don’t buy clothes.  What do I love spending money on…..furniture and decor!!  I call it my addiction with rules.  ( I do set rules for myself so I don’t buy EVERYTHING.)  Being that it’s cold and winter is here in Minnesota, the place to be is the […]

A Painted Kitchen Before and After Pictures

Between the Holidays and family and friends gatherings, the kitchen gets things done here and there.  (I’m sure you know how that goes sometimes)  Even though I have yet to find the perfect handles for all the doors and drawers, I couldn’t help but share the change of our kitchen.  If you remember, our house […]
