Si Dios Lo Permite

We've been a baseball family since my son Brayden was 4 years old.

We couldn't wait for him to start playing ball and when he was old enough we signed him up for our towns recreational baseball program.

He became a grasshopper!

The level of play at 4 years old is soooo slow and Brayden looked and acted so bored.  We wondered if maybe it wouldn't be enough to hold his attention.

He played with his glove... 
He yawned lol

He learned the basics and in the next few years a foundation was laid.

Friday Favorites ~ Floral Transfers on Furniture

Okay so I'm a little obsessed with all of the furniture pieces I'm seeing with floral transfers.

I have to admit I've jumped on the band wagon!!  It's so easy and so rewarding!  :)

In today's post I'm highlighting some of my favorite floral transfer makeovers.

Be sure to click on the links provided to see each post in its entirety.

I love that you can use these transfers on practically anything.

This buffet sold for $1256 on Etsy!!!  Wow!!

Talk about drama!!  I'm loving this piece!

I'm loving the transformation these transfers can give an old tired armoire.

This dresser above sold on Etsy so I don't have a link to give you.  I'm loving the pop of color the transfer gives this white piece.

I'm salivating over this piece!!!  How beautiful is this?  I'm going to try and recreate this soon!  Stay tuned....

You should see the before on some of these!  Talk about a transformation.
I'm inspired!!

And finally...
Here are a couple of pieces I've used transfers on....

This is a really neat cabinet that was given to me.  I love how this turned out.  It would make a nice bar, can be used in a bathroom for towels, in a craft room for all of your supplies, in a library for some books.... the possibilities are endless!
It's available at G Street Mercantile in Antioch, CA.

This is another fun dresser I used transfers on.
This dresser sold pretty quickly and is no longer available.

I hope you are leaving inspired!!!
I know I am.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.

Transformation Tuesday ~ Lonestar Floral Dresser

Since I've been on this journey of transforming furniture I've loved to hunt for unique pieces.  However, what is becoming more common is people approaching me about pieces they'd like to give or sell me.  Such is the case with this dresser.

Friday Favorites ~ Black and White

It feels like we recently went through a neutral fad and I loved it.
Now I'm seeing pops of color everywhere and I'm loving that too.

Something that remains a classic is black and white decor.  Don't you agree?

Why has it been so long you ask?

 Well, ladies and gents!!!  A lot has gone on in this past year.....

Transformation Tuesday ~ Beachwood White Dresser

My son is really into skateboarding.  One of our favorite things to do together is he'll scout out a nearby skate park, ask me to take him and a friend to it and then I'll shop the nearby antique and thrift stores.  After a couple of hours of him skating and me shopping we'll meet up for lunch and spend some QT!  It's just a pretty spectacular win-win for the both of us!  :)

On one of these recent adventures I found this dresser.
