I remember the days when I would hop from thrift store to the next looking for furniture pieces to repaint for my apartment.  Well those days are long gone and it is more of a hassle for me to buy thrift store furniture, rent a truck, haul it up 16 stairs and paint it in my living room. So I buy retail and get exactly what I want.

One of my Facebook friends bought a house very recently and he started doing a lot of pinning to get inspiration on how he would decorate his new place. From his pins, I knew exactly what his style was and had a good feeling of the vibe his house was going to exude. The other day he uploaded a dresser redo that was just my style. With more than 400 likes and 50 comments I knew many of my male readers (and some females) would appreciate his makeover. Okay. Even if he didn't get that many likes I would have still shared it, because its awesome.

I have finally found the perfect dining chairs. I just have to travel about 6 hours one way to get them. So that will cause me to wait until I can get everything in place.
