So..... My old HUGE dollhouse was at my mom's house for about a year and a half. There's a local dollhouse shop that I wanted to consign the dollhouse at. Unfortunately we didn't have a car big enough to move it. I've moved so many things in my family's various cars with a hatchback or … Continue reading My New Dollhouse Project

In the typical Kate way, I decided I wanted to get a closet organizer so I did a little research, went out that day and got … Continue reading Office Closet Storage Organization
I love re-upholstering antique chairs. As much as I love keeping the original essence of each piece, often it is in need of repair or updating. I bought this antique needlepoint cushion chair for $9.99 at Value Village. The seat was falling out in the bottom a little bit. You can see the indent in … Continue reading Upholstering Another Antique Chair! 🙂
So...I found this while browsing OfferUp... It is $250 and I messaged the guy 3 times. He hasn't responded. 😦 So then I looked into other options (all at great prices. I don't like them nearly as much as the HUGE first one. I will have to keep trying. But this is going in my … Continue reading My New Furniture Quest! A Huge Mirror!
