Rocking Horse Restoration

Check out this DIY on a rocking horse restoration. I rescued this rocking horse from going to the curb. I had some different ideas on how to make the mane and tail. Watch the video on how I brought this horse back to life. #farmhousepaint #curbrescue #happycreationsbyjessiemae #thejessiemaeway #happycreationsbyjm #rockinghorse #littlegirlsroom #nurserydecor #uniquegift #babyshower #photoprop #upcycling #DIY #fortheprincess #shabbychic

Give Me Some Bling

Give me some Bling (on fabric)

Can you say bling??? This is a cool video on how to stiffen fabric and add some bling. It is as easy as it looks, you just need to know the best products and tricks to do it right. Watch the video and stiffen your own fabric for a cool project! I have several projects coming up that needed some stiffened fabric, so I thought, why not do a DIY video.
 
I found the cool product Stiffy at Joann’s Fabric & Craft store. I needed some of the fabric to sparkle, so instead of trying to find pink sparkly fabric, I decided to make it myself. The key to the sparkle to stay on the fabric, is to use FINE glitter. I used Martha Stewart, brand, but any fine glitter will do.. The key to the glitter adhering, is to sprinkle on the glitter, while the fabric is still wet, after all the air bubbles are out. Do not try to remove air bubbles after you have sprinkled the glitter, it will ruin the process.
 
Have fun with your fabric, I sure did! Stay tuned to to see what’s coming up with my cool stiffened fabric!
Garage Sale Find Makeover

Garage Sale Find Makeover

Check out this DIY video of an outdated coffee table/side table set!
 
This living room set from the 1980s needed a makeover. The glass inserts are difficult to clean, and the wood was screaming for painting. After removing the glass and painting the set with Farmhouse Paint, it needed something else in the empty holes.
 
Why not use reclaimed wood?? I painted the wood using chalk paint and Unicorn Spit and glued them right in!
 
Instead of purchasing new living room sets, consider revamping what you already have! Flipping furniture is something I’ve been having fun with, especially seeing these older pieces get a new life! #happycreationsbyjessiemae #thejessiemaeway
Dresser Makeover

Dresser Makeover

Once upon a time there was this beautiful dresser with a mirror. The dresser was so beautiful that I couldn’t bear to put any paint on it.
 
So, I decided not to paint it. I put it in my space at the Indian River Antique Mall and it sat there for two months. Many admired it but it did not find a new home. So… with the help of my amazing hubby, I hauled it back home.
 
I didn’t quite know what to do with this gorgeous dresser, because the wood is so amazing! And then…the light bulb came on. I didn’t want to lose the beauty of the wood and the flow of the drawers, so I took a chance and partially painted the dresser.
 
I never really loved that mirror so I decided to lose it. The outcome paid off. I never thought I could love this dresser with paint on it…but Omgoodness, I AM IN LOVE!
