• The BEFORE of an antique piano makeover | Gypsy Magpie

    Antique Piano Project {Before}

    I spent this past Saturday working on an Kingsbury Cabinet Grand antique piano. A sweet friend of mine, who is battling cancer, called a while back and asked if I would be willing to make a dream come true for her. She wants to get her hand-me-down piano out of the garage and into her […]

  • 1980s Pure White Hutch. From hellish to heavenly with a whole lot of work! | Gypsy Magpie

    Pure White 1980s Hutch

    You know those moments when your gut says NO but you just don’t listen? Yep, that’s what happened when I first saw this tired 1980s hutch.

    I found this fun wood headboard on my local selling site and fell for the large round finials. I have a thing for a bright happy headboard so I pulled out my fresh shipment of Sweet Pickins paint and tried to decide between Pantry Door and Completely Coral. Two great colors but only one headboard, […]

    Zinc High Chair

    A few days before the Midway Market I realized I needed a few more filler items so I hit up some yard sales. Right before I headed for home after a long morning of pickin’, my 11 year old navigator pointed out the cutest little wood high chair. I hit the brakes and pulled over. […]

  • I needed a way to gather my inspiration for my dining room project together in one place, so I created this little inspiration board to keep me focused! I love inpiration boards! | Gypsy Magpie

    Dining Room Inspiration Board

    When I was taking interior design classes in school, we were taught to create inspiration boards for the projects we were working on. Because I am such a visual person, I always loved that part of the planning process. There is just something about having everything placed together in front of my eyes that helps […]
