Welcome to Saved by Suzy

I'm so glad you stopped by to check out my new endeavor. As if I wasn't busy enough as mom to three crazy girls (ages 2, 6, and 8) and 2 lovely Golden Retrievers, home decor store employee, attorney, and volunteer, I have decided to dive into a career as a blogger and furniture refinisher.

This blog will follow my sometimes inspired and other times not-so-inspired forays into DIY home decorating, focusing on furnishing your home on the cheap. My favorite thing is to pick up vintage pieces of furnture and "save" them by giving them a "makeover" as my 6-year old likes to say. I will feature things I have done in my own home, things I have found in blogland, and also items I have for sale.

There's nothing I LOVE more than a good before and after. Here's the before:



Here's the after:









More to come on these chairs. Here's some other upcoming stuff: how to make and hang your own curtains, awesome vintage chalkboard school desk for sale, how to find the best thrifty stuff, lots of before and afters, and maybe even some cute pics of the kids.




Be sure to follow me so you don't miss anything exciting! What would you like to see on this blog??

Thanks Cassie! Would you believe that piece in between used to be one of those rustic, old Mexico-type, pine things? Finally got up the courage to give it a makeover several months ago!

Fantastic use of something old. I love when someone can see new use for something.
