Chair+Table2This seven post series was inspired by a table and chairs that I drooled over at Slumberland Furniture for nearly seven months. The new set would have cost me nearly $1000 and I just couldn’t take the leap. Instead, I decided to go for an table and chairs upcycle. Working with this table and chairs was a labor of love, but the total cost was less than $100. Plus, I love the finished product. This was only my second upcycle project! Anyone can do this. I’m a beginner, too. The finished table now resides in my sewing and writing studio. One chair sits by my sewing machine, another at my computer and the other two are nestled around our kitchen table.

Blue to Match {5 of 7}

Adding color to a project with a base coat of white (or any other color) is easy! (I don’t know why I thought it would be hard, I just did!)

I had one quart of blue semi-gloss paint & I simply dipped my 1 inch wide brush lightly into the can. I didn’t coat the whole brush with paint, but just got a little. Then, I quickly/chaotically/messily/methodically brushed blue on all of my chairs and the legs of the table! So easy!

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
