I don't know what it is about vintage door knobs, but we love them here at Robb Restyle. We like to think of them as an architectural fingerprint - sometimes just as unique as the home they were used in - but also sometimes an element long forgotten or taken for granted. We find them in all shapes and sizes and colors - and so much unlike the knobs of doors used in more recent homes. Our workshop has bins of them, collected over many, many years. When we are missing a match for a doorknob … [Read more...] about DIY Painted Faux Pumpkins with Vintage Door Knobs

I love old my old house. I love my old house. I love my old house...just keep telling yourself...Okay, so I don't love EVERYTHING about my old house, but I have learned to make do with some of those little annoyances that come with century old homes. I've accepted things like tiny kitchens, leaky bathrooms, too few outlets, and multiple doorways in every room. And, I've fallen in love with things like tall ceilings, glass door knobs, original solid wood trim and pocket doors, built-in window … [Read more...] about Multi-Purpose Dining Room Tour
This Christmas will go down in Robb history as one of our more memorable ones and not for what Santa brought... but for the little guy we adopted just before the holiday. Meet Master Chief.To say we aren't "dog people" would be the understatement of the year. We lost our cat suddenly and the overwhelming guilt that follows once you've told your kids their pet died can initiate some hasty, even irrational decisions. But hey, our boys are only young once and the endless requests for a … [Read more...] about DIY Puppy Couch Cover
Okay, so you could say I'm a bit obsessed with numbers right now. I'm seeing all kinds of numbered items on Pinterest, of course. It's a really easy way to update something that's already painted. I think it adds a bit of vintage spirit to your home - and in my case, both indoors and out! My mom recently purchased a Silhouette Cameo machine for me which makes it super easy to design a cool number stencil in any font I choose. I absolutely love everything about typography design and this sort … [Read more...] about Numbers, numbers, painted numbers.
Here are a few more benches and a foot stool that we painted, waxed and recovered with burlap sacks. We made our own chalk paint for the white and blue benches. Then we rubbed on a dark wax for a smooth finish. Our personal favorite is the blue "kitchen queen" potato sack! These are perfect accessories for your living room or a mudroom for putting on shoes... or perhaps in a bedroom or by your front door. There are countless possibilities. Would be great in a room with some burlap pillows … [Read more...] about More burlap foot stools and benches.
Have I told you how talented my husband is? We found this little gem in a cute shop while on vacation near French Lick, Indiana.Corey has been collecting random license plates for years. We've put plenty of the coolest or oldest ones on our walls in our basement (channeling Applebee's or a more hip bar scene?)... Anyway, he's basically taken the rest of our piles of license plates and turned them into these cute flowers! While I'm usually the one with the vision, he initiated this … [Read more...] about Repurpose: License Plate Flower
