Vanity & Dresser Makeover

This weekend I finished the last project on The Porch of Projects, the Craigslist Vanity & Dresser. Both the dresser and vanity had a circle and diamond shaped groove in the top drawer that gave them the distinct look of nursery furniture. So my first order of business was to fill those with wood fill. […]

The China Cabinet has been Collected

  Some of you may remember when I bought the antique china cabinet on ebay about a month or so ago.  The seller is about 120 miles away in Pennsylvania, so it took us a while to schedule a time to meet half way. Having looked at a google map of the route between the […]

Meet my new linen closet and the porch of projects

So yesterday I posted about tearing down the upstairs hall built in and how that necessitated buying an armoire to keep our linens and extra bath products in. Never one to pass up an excuse to shop, I have been obsessively scouring craigslist and ebay for weeks! Finally, a few days ago we hit gold […]

Day 3 and I’m Only Slightly Less Panicked..

So actually LIVING in the house is really quite different than working on it while having another place to stay… all of the sudden it changes from fun side project into your LIFE. Every can of paint you open and leave on the counter eventually gets in the way of crucial activities such as making […]

I had to Buy it, Really!

Vanity (and chest) that I found on Craigslist for $150 from an actor who goes by “Bones“ No really, I did because our upstairs bathroom is SO small that I have no where to put my rather, um, “extensive” makeup and product collection. It has NOTHING to do with the fact that its totally shabby […]

Weekend Plans

The weekend is upon us and we’re in the unfamiliar territory called “the home stretch” in which we actually get to start “cleaning up” and “finishing things” in preparation for (gasp!) actually MOVING IN! Whoohooo! Ok, as usual I’m getting a bit ahead of myself because we can’t move in until we have the floors […]

Ball and claw end table – Chic & Cheap

It was love at first sight when I first spotted this Louis side table from Anthropologie:  But at $598 plus $75 shipping, it’s a little um, pricey.  My “cheap” version? This lovely circa 1930 shabby chic white end table I got at my favorite antique dealer in NYC for $125: At first glance, not so similar.  But they […]

I hearth Craigslist and our faux fireplace

One of my greatest dissapointments about our 1929 house is that it has no fireplace.  I’m a big fan of the fireplace.. well of the mantel anyway.  Even the house we rented in Fort Lauderdale had one, even if it was just an antique mantel nailed to a flat wall. But the point is that […]
