A made over make over....

This was a first..ok
not really.
I have been known to change my look
Often.
Too often some would say.
So up above you will see my newly made over make over!
You may remember my trip to Round Top when I purchased these huge screens on top my car.
You can visit that post here.
I made quite a few and sold some here.
I saved this one for myself and liked it ok.
But...
You know me and my longing to lighten things up.
I wanted to give it a bit of a "Frenchie Flair"
I get so much inspiration from this girl
Her name is Kasey and you may have seen her awesome blog
I want to move right into her farmhouse
stay awhile.
visit her friends..
and take a trip with her to Ikea.
           where was I.....oh yes!
So I took a drop cloth
and painted some "Frenchie" on it..
Then I had fun adding all of my junk treasures to it once again.
Have you ever just started falling in love with your house all over again?
I think I have found my look.
What's your "look" ?

  2. Don't you just love drop cloths from Lowes? For 9 bucks you'll be amazed as what one could do. I've go some pillows in mind here for the Veranda.

    Thanks for sharing S-q!

    with love,

  3. Oh my sweet friend you have such vision. I feel about your site the way you feel about Lola B, and to think you are just as sweet as you are talented. I can't believe you made that from dropcloth. Your birdie tags are so cute on it. Hope you have a wonderful day.

  7. That is one spectacular mini makeover! Stealing....
    My look? I wished I had a look. My look used to be your look (bright and airy) now I'm in this house and it's all dark (and new...it's hard to change new stuff).
    Still, I love your look!!

  8. I liked it a lot before but I LOVE the makeover! I bet you won't be able to keep these around for long if you sold them.

  12. Oh, I like it so much better in the white. The chalkboard is framed so nicely, now. Great work!

  13. I love the new creamy color. And the bird tag is too cute! I bought some drop cloth from my local hardware store, washed it about 3 times and have made some cute table runners. I still have enough left to make about 1000 pillows!! I love the stuff!

  14. I love your look! The message board/chalkboard is so lovely and fun, too! I love how you added the French style to it. My look? I've been trying to figure that out for so many years! I like too many styles!

  15. it is hard to put a finger on what my style is exactly...eclectic, colorful, vintage, flea market find, and lots of colorful quiltyness. see i was not even sure how to explain it. i love the message board and what you did to that drop cloth. i have 5 stashed away in my closet waiting to be turned into something amazing.

  18. J'adore it, Susie!!! ;) My current look says "cluttered, messy family with small children lives here." It is fab. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love the new frenchy look! It totally "makes" that project perfect!! My look I'm working towards...Fresh Classic Style. Now you can sit at your kitchen table with a cup of coffee and a fav magazine and look up and sigh in loving contentment at your new message board makeover! :)
    Blessings,
    Stacey

  20. You have such beautiful ideas, Susie! Absolutely perfect makeover!

    My look is cozy and comfortable, with a bit of country mixed in.

    Blessings~

  21. I love it! Much better lightened up. I really like the striple you also added to the fabric side.

  22. I am not sure what my look is at this time. Somewhere between cottage, traditional. I am revamping a little bit over here. Hoping to get some painting done soon, and lightening things up a bit. Jackie

  23. I love it! I really love what you did to the fabric and in fact my wheels are now spinning. I may be trying something similar soon--thanks for the inspiration!

  24. Love it Susie...still trying to figure my look out. I am one who needs lots of help and looking at blogs does help me in that area...I just wish I had the eye to put it all together.

    Tell me where you got your pot rack? I have been wnating to get one but being in this small town not much luck...I am going to have to hit the road for one.

  25. The french look is really in right now-I've love what you have done. I wish I had half your energy-I mean that! My mom is a tweaker just like you, her house is always changing and always for the better-When I think it can't get any better it does! Just like yours!

  30. Oh, Susie! You just have that magic touch, girl. It's so adorable! I love every style - I believe that is called eclectic - ha!

    ReplyDelete
  31. fabulous! what color is that paint, gorgeous, light & airy...it made me feel like i was on vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOVE the french flare! Looks awesome. I hate my kitchen...it needs your touch. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. My look is in total transition and I am currently not at all in love with my house. I love your house though :). And I like the lightened-up look of your screen/board/thingy. (Also LOVE Kasey!)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well, I really liked the black one, but I love, love the white one! And I think I'm copying your style as I also love it! (just kidding..) My old style was that crafty country look & I'm trying to update my home. I'm going with more gold/mellow colors, some tealish-blue (is that a word?). I'm also using a bird theme with a lot of floral/nature accents. Time for this ole lady to update! I really do enjoy your blog posts.

  35. Oh Susie, I don't know what my look is right now...and us getting ready to move.....talk about overwhelming!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Too cute! Love the painted drop cloth!

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOVE, love, love! OMG, Susie, it turned out incredible!!!!!!!!! Where ever did you find the cool stencil...it just totally finishes the piece!

    You're so dang talented ~

    :) T

  38. I love the transformation! And I love those tags so much that I bought a set from your store. :) I can't wait to get them! You have a great blog. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I really love this! Seriously you rocked it!!
    I love lots bright color myself, but something about the simple white...yup it tugs on me too! I move too much so I'd say my look is created around displaying my children's arts (crafts, pictures, books, etc). I don't want to buy things to fit this home, when a new one will be coming along way too soon. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Looks great! What stencil or font did you use?!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great transformation. I love the new look!

  45. Oooo lala!! I love it! It looks gorgeous:) You're so creative. I wish I had your style. I just asked my husband what style he would consider our apartment and he said that it was a lot of different things. I'm always wavering between vintage, country, ecclectic and retro. One day I'll get it together;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hey Susie. It's just amazing how you turned those screens into such treasures. I just love your kitchen. Please come spend a week working on my house. Ha-ha.

    Big hugs...Tracy :)

  50. As always, I love it. This version is so light and whimsical. Do you do a craft everyday? How do you prioritize which ones you will tackle?

    ReplyDelete

  53. Round Top? Population 70? My husband attended a music festival there for a few summers a couple of years ago. I didn't think any one outside of the classical music world had ever heard of such a place. :-)

  56. I love it. I love your kitchen. I love that your kitchen looks so shiny and clean. I love the bunny in the cage that you can see in the 4th picture down. I love you :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. So love this look. Your home is beautiful. I am trying to figure out what my look is. I love light, whites, frenchy, metal baskets and a few doodads to dress it up. Does that sound like a look.

    LOVE the "new" chalk / treasure board! I think we all have white on the brain as I too find myself gravitating towards the white and creams (and silver accessories)

Thanks for stopping by. It's always so nice to hear from you.
