Thanks Lindsay for inviting me to guest post at Southern Lovely! Your blog is one of the first blogs that captured my attention because your design is super cute and every thing you post is so fun and stylish! I'm glad to call you friend and along with all your other readers, I'm dying to see your new house!!!
I’m Aimee Lane and I blog at It’s Overflowing, simply inspired ideas shared daily! I wanted to share with you one of the first projects I shared on my blog. On our way to church, wearing our 'Sunday Best', I was doing my monthly ritual of scouting the bulk trash that had been placed on the curb the night before. I saw a piece of furniture worth stopping to check out...
An obvious keeper…don’t you think!
Church...errands...laundry...a few weeks passed before I remembered to get this beauty out of the trunk. When I brought it in, it was a chippy wood nightmare. I tried adding wax and tried spraying it with polyurethane, but my new hardwood floors continued to be layered in old flaky paint....until I got a little vision...don't you love it when that happens!
I cut slats into the legs and my hubby made a shelf from plywood — the little table needed more storage and stability! Some wheels, a towel bar, primer and paint....
Looking a little more like a kitchen cart, right!!?
And here it is...the perfect pop of color in my kitchen remodel!
Want to see what I found recently....definite potential...are you feeling it?!
I'd love to have you come by It's Overflowing for a visit! Here's the link to see what I did with this darling piece of reclaimed wood...feel free to explore my blog's header icons for decor, diy projects, crafts, recipes, green ideas, photo tutorials, household tips, and more!
Lindsay, you're the best...thanks again for letting me visit with you and your bloggy friends today! I hope you're beginning to feel settled...you are so wise in taking a little time to care for your family during this transition!
