Tuesday's Treasury List ~ Kitchen Tables

This week's Tuesday Treasury List is all about kitchen tables ~ the most important piece of furniture in a home.

My kitchen table is my favorite piece in our house. Ever since our children were small, we've always shared our evening meal together around this table. I found some great tables here on Etsy, hopefully they will become someone's favorite piece.

Bunk Bed Ladder Turned Outdoor Planter


One of the greatest things about having adult children is that they tend to use your garage as a storage facility.  Well, my husband wouldn't consider that one of the greatest things, he loves his children dearly but grimaces every time they move out of an apartment or dorm room.  He knows our garage will be filled again with extra bed frames, tables and boxes of unknown goodies.  I, on the other hand, welcome all the new (or should I say old and second hand) treasures.  Now, just to be fair, I always ask the kiddos if I can saw, sand or rip apart their belongings before I start my transformations.  They usually say yes, after all their father and I purchased most of what returns to the garage.  So, when I asked my almost college grad daughter if I could have the ladder to her former loft bed, after looking at me like I was crazy, she said yes!

I love shopping all the wonderful shops on Etsy. I love this time of year and all the memories of traditions and family gatherings it brings back. Many of those memories involve cast iron accessories in some shape or form. I hope you like browsing these great Etsy shops....

Just a Spoonful of Black Paint Makes the Bar Stool Stand Out....

I've had the tune to  "Just A Spoonful of Sugar Makes the Medicine Go Down" in my head for a couple of days.  Now it's even affecting the titles of my DIY projects and blog posts!  However, it does help to introduce the fact that just a tiny bit of paint can transform almost anything, especially bar stools.
