Planking our Farmhouse Table Top

 More changes to our kitchen.. I've been craving a planked harvest table so I just simply added pine planks to the top of our original oak kitchen table and then stained them the best I could to match our weathered kitchen island pendant lights and RH chair legs... I will post more on the stain tomorrow.. Check out how it all turned out here!

Medicine Cabinet Makeover

Today I am sharing a small project I have been up to.. I found this medicine cabinet a while back at a ReStore shop by my house for under $10. At the time I 'loved' how it was lavender in colour...It's actually what attracted me to it and made me buy it! I originally got it for my daughters playroom. Now having a son... I am in the midst of trying to make the playroom a little"less feminine".. It's currently bubble gum pink in colour with a baby pink kitchen.. ahh my poor lil' guy lol! Anyways I added some vintage more masculine wall art and decided to move the medicine cabinet up to our master ensuite so I could have even more storage.. Yes I need more storage!! Read below for more details on our easy medicine cabinet makeover.

Antique Wash Basin Stand into Vanity Makeover

First let me say.. Sorry. I know I have been MIA for a while.. This summer has just been super busy with the kids... So today I am here to share a bit of what we have been up to over here.. One of our recent DIY's is this Antique wash basin stand.. I got it on an online auction for $50! So with a budget of approx. $300 and by mixing up some old with the new I was able to create our new modern farmhouse Vanity.
