I have someone you have to meet!
Well…actually, most of you probably know her. :)
It’s my friend, Beth, from The Stories from A to Z!
If you have spent anytime in blogland at all, you have had to see some of her amazing home projects. I love her style and her heart as well!
She and I are “blog swapping” today, and I am so honored she is sharing some of her best projects with my readers.
After reading her post, head on over to her blog and subscribe or follow her (if you don’t already!). You will not be disappointed! :)
Traci and I met for lunch a few months ago when she attended the Relevant Conference.
In case you’re wondering, she is just as bubbly, cute, and real in person as she is on her blog!
(And her Southern accent is beyond adorable.)
I drilled holes, stained and stamped them until they looked beautifully authentic.
I love how they turned out and they are definitely one of my favorite crafts from this year. If you want the full tutorial on how I did it, click here.
Favorite Furniture Redo: Coffee Table to Desk
My husband needed to be gently escorted out of my craft room. He already “owns” our library/guest room, so I really didn’t want to have to share my new space with him! I thought I would entice him back into his own room by making him a new desk out of a roadside coffee table I had stashed in the basement.
Yes, it’s girly as all get out, but he seems to have taken the bait! If you want to see how I pulled off this feat, click here.
Favorite Room Redo: Master Bedroom
Like many other bloggers, I adore Heather Chadduck. And even though she did this bedroom like 8yrs ago or so, I still adore it! I wanted it, so of course I copied it!
Here’s Heather’s version:
And here is mine:
And here is one of the many befores of this room. (I kept trying to make my old room work which was silly.)
And again the after:
So that’s a taste of A2Z! Now that you know me a bit better fellow passionate ones, I hope you’ll stop by sometime and say hello! Thanks to Traci for letting me hijack your blog for a day. This was fun!
Great stuff as always, Beth!
Thanks for hanging out with me and my readers today!
Glad to know your ploy to get your husband out of your craft room worked! Fun stuff as always, Beth.
What a fantastic coffee table –> desk transformation! I can’t wait to see the details on that one.
Hi, Traci! I already know Beth, of course, but I’m happy to see the two of you blog-swapping for the day. Hope it’s beneficial for both of you!
LOVE that coffee table turned desk!!
I love both you girls! You are both fantastically creative & I’m glad you are my friends. :)
Blog swapping is a great dea! You two are so smart and cute too!
Love the site!!! I’ve got that exact same table. I picked it up at Good will for $7. It’s on my list to turn it into a bench w/cushion. Keep an eye on my blog, it’ll make it on there even sooner now! Thanks for sharing.
Sweet Beth, I just came over to give you a cyber hug! Thanks for introducing us to such a darling as Traci!!!
I think your spool project was the first thing I remember seeing on your lovely blog and you had me at hello! I think you need to come help me with my bland bedroom… I made it “over” before we put our home on the market, but it’s gotten more and more boring as time has passed!! I want to do an all white thing, with little pops of color here and there. No clue… just in the pondering stage.
Great post! I have been following A to Z for sometime. Love it! Great inspiration!
I love love love the desk/coffee table!!! I have a table I could use for that too!! Thanks!
I have stopped by your blog before from linking parties and I have to say you have some pretty creative stuff going on over there. Love your bedroom redo…and those spools!!! OMG, i didn’t realize you made them. Very cool!
off to go become a follower.
I LOVE your burlap bed skirt! Your master bedroom is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing!
You could entice ME into the office with that desk. :-) Love the spools, too and can’t believe they were made. Honestly, how do you know how to do this stuff. And you’re so kind to show the rest of us how to do it.
Love the enticement!
Now if I could just find a way to entice my husband to let me move his entire office!
I absolutely love the coffee table, really, it’s amazing!
And those vintage spools: “woooooow”, beautiful! What a great antique feel!! Loooove everything! : D
