Awesome DIY Furniture Blog

This is my newest  favoritist blog. I love a great transformation! While looking through Pinterest like I do EVERY night for furniture inspiration I came across this blog and practically pinned every transformation!

It’s called Better After and it’s exactly that. If you have a piece of furniture that you’ve transformed send in a before and after pic. Maybe you’ll be featured next!

No, maybe this one is my favorite. Do you know how many of those ugly ole’ plastic front dressers there are at the GW??? To think I’ve always passed them up. I think I feel a thrift store run coming on….

Anywho go check out this site….Better After

How To Elevator Pitch – Part II

Ready for it? Think I have my Elevator Pitch completed. This came to me just as I was dozing off last night, of course, so I had my husband who was still up on his Ipad write it down for me…thanks babe!

“Hi my name is Lisa Lee. I’m a stay at home mom of 3 beautiful babies and wife to one tall roofing contractor. In order to keep from losing my sanity on a daily basis I try to incorporate creativity into my everyday life. I’m an avid DIY’er who specializes in recycling and upcycling cast off furniture pieces with a little paint and staple gun. I also love interior design  and jewelry design.  I write about all of this on my blog….lisajaynelee.blogspot.com.”
What do you think? I’m not sure I can actually “pitch” this in a elevator. Maybe out to left field? Lol…did Martha Stewart have to write an elevator pitch?….. 

A Church Rummage Sale

Milk Paint – Miss Mustard Seed Yellow PreOrder now

   Tomorrow is the biannual church rummage sale here in Yorba Linda. This is a great opportunity to find some unique pieces to upcycle and redecorate. I am definitely on the lookout for some vintage and antique furniture to paint with Miss Mustard Seed’s new paint line….I can’t wait to try it out. Especially this fabulous butter yellow color. It’s available as a preorder on this Etsy site. I have been following Miss Mustard Seed for a few years now and it’s been great to watch her grow and read her daily furniture and decor posts. She definitely is a gal who I could be great friends with. We have a lot in common…..moms, believers in Christ, furniture DIY crazy, bloggers, and the thrill of the hunt for a good yard sale. 

Good luck Miss Mustard Seed! I hope your paint moves mountains in many homes!
