A Painted Coffee Table

Remember what my $15 second hand table looked like before?  You can’t tell here but the top was really beat up.  And I wanted some color. My friend Angela {remember, my yard sale shopping partner in crime?} painted it for me.  Updated:: Angela has a blog now! There is hardly anything this woman cannot do.  […]

Pillow Talk

The other day I showed some photos of our family room and talked about all my little junk.  One of comments mentioned that my sofa looked like a big white hole without pillows and a throw. My first thought was “whaaa? I have a million pillows on my sofa, what is she talking about?” Then […]

Our home has changed a lot over the past year and a half. It feels much more peaceful and calm and pulled together and meaningful and useful to our family now.  You might have liked it better before and that’s ok because you don’t live here.  I’ve been going through a stage where I want […]

Dining Chairs

We got chairs for our table.  Finally. Back in February we had this.  Nothing wrong with it but, it was beginning to not work for us.  I wanted to use the big end chairs upstairs and all the side chairs were driving me crazy. They were really heavy and a little larger scale than I […]

The Gifted Library Table

I’ve had this table for over a year and somehow, I’ve never told you about it. A year and a half ago my mom and I pulled up to a yard sale and saw the gloriousness that was this aged table sitting on the sidewalk, we were both giddy with excitement but contained ourselves because […]

How Our New TV is Paying For Itself

TV

Remember how I hated our TV wall?  I like it much better now.  My husband got all mathy on me and showed me how if we canceled our cable we could still watch our favorite shows and in about 9 months, the new TV will pay for itself with the money we save on our […]

Decorating With Dough Bowls

I blame the cottage. Oh, I had seen these rustic dough bowls used before but always in an über crafty/country/dried flowers with roosters and other things that are pretty but weren’t quite my style.  But, once I saw one at the cottage, I decided that I could incorporate one or 20 into our home. I […]

Nesting Place Paint Colors & A Linky For Your Paint Colors

One of the most common questions I get asked are about my paint colors.  And while I am very open with giving out any and all colors~I’ve mentioned them all multiple times, I’m not very organized about it.  So, I thought I’d list them all here in one spot.  I know how obsessed I get […]

Browsing for a Coffee Table

DSC_0016

For months I’ve been on the prowl for a round coffee table.  It wasn’t a desperate prowl, we had a big chunky rectangular coffee table that I still love but, it was taking up a lot of precious room that could be freed up with a circle. There are times when we need something and […]
