We're so glad you're here! We've been transforming spaces together for the past five years and slowly renovating our own 1950's home. Join us as we create a home we love!

Hi, we're Jake and Sarah

Today is definitely a 5% Saturday! We are working on the side panels of our island (which is about 5% of it). Then, we’ll be doing a stain removal on some beautiful, thrifted chairs! Now that we have a game plan, we can start doing little projects like this!

There were a couple nail heads sticking out, so we used a nail setter to fix that.

Normally, I despise liquid nails but we already tried nails for this project and it was a royal disaster. They did the trick here! I applied the liquid nails to the back of the panel and let it set with clamps. We don’t have corner clamps so we just put a piece of plywood up against it with random weighted objects. 😂

After I let it set over night, I primed and painted. I used Kilz 2 Gray Interior/Exterior primer and let that set for about 30 minutes. Then, I used 2 coats of “Railings” by Farrow & Ball. All our cabinets will be this color when we’re finished!

It felt good to get these sides up today!

Next – stain removal!

You know when you try to remove a stain and the stain remover leaves a bigger stain?! That happened to me. So it’s time to get it out!

These chairs are my favorite thrift store find ever. Just $20 each!

I used my Hart Spot Cleaner. It’s amazing. My favorite thing about this this the self-cleaning feature. You can put a little cap on it an it cleans out the hose.
