Decor Trends 2017: Navy

TGIF, friends!  This week has kicked my hiney, with the time change and my work load!  I'm ready to SLEEP IN a bit this weekend if I can.  We're trekking through the repainting process of my home and still looking at some exterior refreshes, but we're slowly making progress.  #goals Today I wanted to share another decor trend in 2017 and this one is a favorite.  Yes, it's also a holdover from 2016, but I think it will continue to have legs for … [Read more...]

Before and After: End Table Makeover

Greetings, friends!  It's been a busy several days with work and our Legacy Benefit Dinner and some fun time with friends, so I am dragging this week!  It's been a while since I shared a furniture project, so I thought today was a good day to show you this end table makeover. A friend of mine {practically} gifted this pine end table to me several months ago.  It took me a while to decide how I wanted to refresh it so it sat in my garage until … [Read more...]

What’s In for 2017: Acrylic Furniture

Hey there!  My heat has been restored and of course it's been 70 degrees the last couple of days... but we're due for another cold blast, so at least I'll be in comfort this time around. :)  I thought it would be fun over the next few weeks to share some of the trends in decor I'm seeing online and in print... some of these might be holdovers from 2016, but they're still going strong in interiors, so it's not too late to jump on the … [Read more...]

Front Porch Update

Hi gang - as promised, I've made some more progress on the front porch, so I wanted to bring y'all  into the loop!  It's not 100 percent finished, but it's darn close!  Here's our inspiration photo... And here's where we started... The biggest change we made was adding these beauties... They were on sale at Hayneedle right before our anniversary, so we decided to bite the bullet and go for it!  The hubs was able to assemble … [Read more...]

School Desk Makeover

Hello, friends... before I dive into a new furniture project here, I wanted to pause and send my heartfelt condolences to the Orlando community.  We're living in a scary and crazy time where it seems evil lurks at every turn.  I'm saddened by the way our leaders and presidential candidates have lurched into finger-pointing and political discussions in the wake of this.  Praying diligently for clear heads to prevail and for unity in our approach … [Read more...]

The Booth for Spring!

Hi there, friends!  I hope you enjoyed a great weekend - we had wonderful weather here, so I was on a spring cleaning binge.   I was hoping to tackle my front porch but we're still getting lots of pollen here so it's not quite time.  However, it's never too soon to plan so I'll be sharing some inspiration for my spring porch makeover later this week along with some upcoming furniture projects. But today I wanted to share my booth refresh that I … [Read more...]

Before and After: Dressing Table Makeover

Hello, friends ~ I didn't mean to be gone so long!  The last couple of weeks have been doozies around here, so I've fallen behind on the old blog.  But I've missed you and so I'm back. :) Today I'm sharing a recent paint project I completed and popped into my booth.  Remember this little desk/dressing table I was working on a while ago? She was painted just a creamy white, but I decided to up her fun factor with some Farmhouse Paint in … [Read more...]

Help Me Decide! Furniture Stenciling Project

Hi friends!  I hope you're enjoying a great week... we've got spring creeping in here and I spent most of last weekend knocking out my painting projects.  Confession:  that bed was a beast!!  My back is still stiff from endless crouching and contorting my body to get those posts properly painted.  It's amazing how much better it looks, though!  Here's the before... I used Farmhouse Paint in Cotton White... it's a nice crisp white.  Not too … [Read more...]

Project Sneak Peeks and a Note About Legacy

Good Thursday to you, friends!  Popping back in today with a couple of painting projects I've been working on this week.  The weather has been perfect to get a few things done so that's been my focus.  But first, I wanted to share a note about Legacy with you.
