Welcome to my new space!

I am so excited to finally have a place other than Facebook to share my projects with you! I am not a professional photographer or writer but I am hoping that this can be a space to inspire DIY projects, budget furniture makeovers, and ways to spruce up your home using what you already have or using minimal funds (seriously… who has an excess of those?! It’s a fun challenge to be resourceful!).

I am a stay at home wife and momma to 3 little ones. I’ve been reviving and restyling since high school when rearranging my room or turning old jeans into a new crossover bag were my favorite weekend activities. To date, many pieces of furniture have come to me as dated or neglected pieces and left my doors made new as a functional statement piece or simply fitting in with my clients’ taste. Helping people update their home or making color choices is quickly becoming a passion. With the prodding encouragement of family and friends I’m excited to share with you, in more detail, my projects along with my processes and tips.

I came up with the name “Made New” three years ago while thinking about how I receive continued renewal through Christ. I am made new through HIM! †

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation:

old things are passed away; behold, all things are made new.”

2 Corinthians 5:17

Here is my first piece I ever worked on for a client in 2012! After seeing the transformation I was addicted. This piece was purchased in Germany and relocated to the states with its family. The top received a coat of Restor-a-Finish (more on this product in the future) and was painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint’s Old White.

This is the same color I’ve painted many pieces including my daughters’ provincial bedroom set. I hope to share those pieces with you too when the floor is not covered in princess dresses and Little People!

First posts are always awkward but for now I simply say welcome! I hope you will stick with me and I’ll try to do the same!
