A Peek at My Booth…

Hi everyone!  I hope you all took the time to get out and VOTE yesterday!  Here in ATL, our schools were closed for the day so I got a bonus day at home to get some things done after voting... and if you follow me on Instagram, you saw I ended up shoe shopping, too.  Oops. ;-) #sorrynotsorry I ended up with some to. die. for. smokey taupe wedges.  Thank goodness for a BFF that was available by text to seal the deal. :) And how did we ever shop … [Read more...]

Before & After: ASCP Duck Egg Desk (and Haven-bound!)

Hi friends!  This post-holiday week has gotten away from me -- I hope you all enjoyed a lovely 4th of July weekend!  We spent it with friends in Huntsville, AL, lounging beside their mountain-top pool, eating way too much good food, and loving on their three lively pooches.  I sped home late Saturday so I could send my teen missionary on his way to Marvell, Arkansas.  They're having a fantastic week of doing God's work in that small community and … [Read more...]

Before & After: Vintage Bed Makeover

Monday, monday -- and AGAIN with the rain on the way!  Ugh... at least it will knock the pollen down a bit #thinkingpositive. The hubs and I traveled to Mississippi over the weekend to lay a cousin to rest.  Though it was a sad occasion, I always love seeing my extended family and was treated to time with my dad, too.  So it was a quick weekend, with not a lot getting done on the home front, but so it goes, right? I have not-so-great photos … [Read more...]

I <3 You...

T.G.I.F.   What. a. week.  Parent conferences are not for the faint of heart, I have to say.   Maybe someday I can document all the interesting challenges I run across with parents, but for now -- God gives me the weekends to regroup. :) We are in the deep freeze here in the Deep South... and while I know you hardy folks from Northern parts think we are big wimps. when you're used to January temps in the 50's and not the teens it's quite a … [Read more...]

Drop Leaf Side Table Makeover

Woo hoo!  My first furniture project in a WHILE... so happy to have this cutie pie finished up and ready to share.  And I tried something new this time... a two tone look. Ok, this was my first go-round with the Minwax Polyshades so you'll have to let me know what you think... First, let's take a look at this lady before... I scored this lady some time ago and loved her lines and versatility with the drop leaves!  And I … [Read more...]

Sponsor Spot Light: Shop Small Saturday!

It's no secret I'm a fan of small businesses... after all, I AM one!  And I'm so pleased that all of my sponsors here on Decor & More are small businesses, too. Did you know small businesses provide 55% of all jobs and 66% of NEW jobs since 1970 (sba.gov)??   They have a direct impact on the economic health of our communities and I feel we all have a responsibility to support them. Now, don't get me wrong... I love a good sale, and it's … [Read more...]

Annie Sloan Provence Chairs

Hello, friends!  I'm knee-deep in back to school for my crew this week, so it's been lame here and I apologize.  My daughter is moving into an apartment this year, so every spare minute has been painting furniture for her space and shopping for deals for her.  Last minute much?? Anyhoo, I'm sharing a project I completed before we left for the beach.  I scored these four chairs at a big garage sale last fall. I knew I wanted to freshen … [Read more...]

Emperor’s Silk Accent Table Makeover

Good Monday, everyone!  I hope you had a super weekend -- we had almost no break from the rain, so I still have projects waiting in the wings.  But I did enjoy some time watching Wimbeldon (Yay, Andy Murray!!) and had a fun movies and pizza night with my Peeps.  And this little lovely has appeared on my new knock out rose bushes I planted in our retaining wall bed!  #allthatrainwasgoodforsomething If you follow me on Instagram, you got a … [Read more...]

Paris Gray Console

Happy Flag Day, friends!!  I hope you're showing your patriotism today by displaying our flag! Even my back deck has gotten in on the action... We've got another busy weekend planned, but I sure am enjoying my summertime! This week I finished up that sad little console table with the great legs...  remember her? She was a freebie with a corner missing on her drawer...  but I figured with a simple makeover and the right price, … [Read more...]
