Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Greetings! And a happy hot summer weekend to ya! We are really heating up on the West Coast of BC and with that comes many happy hot summer night evening bike rides which is my happy place!

And this week I actually have some news and a new project to share!

stenciled wooden bar stools retro star style

Coordinating wooden bar stools makeover with stencils


Wooden bar stool makeover, retro star style!

Two curbside found stools that had been in storage for a LONG time finally got a quick makeover, thanks to landing a couple of fabulous resin wicker chairs, turning into the cutest coordinating side tables, retro star style!

This project even created the need for a new retro star tile stencil with a lighter touch, which works so well with the other bolder versions!

Check out all the funky new stencils HERE with many more projects to come using them!

So off my son and I go to a new weekly neighbourhood farmer’s market that’s finally opening up this weekend. Can you spell food trucks?! 

While I indulge, here’s a treat for your eyes with the following fabulous repurposed project features from last week’s party…
