In Case You Missed It {August}

Well, the weekend flew by, didn't it?!  I enjoyed some furniture painting and a little bit of crafting, but mostly got a few things ticked off my to-do list.  And added some more to it!  I realize it's already 8 days into September, but I thought I'd go ahead and recap August here  before I got too much further behind.  :) It seemed August was a month of updates, like my back deck... and my guest room. I also shared a couple of … [Read more...]

Smile! It’s a Guest Room Update

Hello, friends and TGIF!  I'm soooo ready to end this week... it's been a challenging one in every way.  So to give you(and me!) a little Friday "happy" I'm sharing a teensy little guest room update... one that brings a smile to my face every time I walk by this space! I was in HomeGoods a few weeks ago and spotted not one, but TWO of these adorable "smile" pillows!  I knew right away I had to have them for my guest room beds... and the … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It {June}

I'm having a hard time believing we're in July now!  My summer is flying by... and I really want it to just sllllooooowwww down a bit!  We were on the go in a major way last month, but I still squeezed in quite a few projects.  Hopefully I can get to even more in July -- and there are some fun things in store here on the blog in the next few weeks! In the meantime, here's a recap of June here at Decor & More... 1. Guest Room Details: … [Read more...]

6 Ways to “Go Vintage” (A Guest Room Makeover)

Happy Friday!  We're off and running toward another busy weekend -- we don't let grass grow under our feet during the summer!  I was working in my booth yesterday and had a customer ask how to incorporate a vintage piece into their decorating and it got me thinking someone else might need similar suggestions.  So today I'm sharing 6 ways to "go vintage"  in your home decor, courtesy of my recent guest room redo! When I embarked on the guest … [Read more...]

In Case You Missed It {May}

I had to chuckle when I remembered writing about how crazy my month of May would be and that you might not see much of me on the blog during that month... ha!  I'm so thrilled to be into June when I can breathe a little, take stock of what projects I'd like to accomplish this summer, and catch up on blogging and reading. In case you missed some of these May moments, here's a look back! We squeezed in a lake getaway to recharge before … [Read more...]

Guest Room Details: Artwork

Happy Monday!  We're back from a fun-filled weekend in Eufaula and gearing up for our next adventure later this week: deep-sea fishing in the Gulf.  Did I mention my husband likes to be on the GO when I'm off for the summer???? Anyway, I've got a few days to get some things done around here, including sharing more of my guest room makeover with you. :) Here's a little secret about the artwork in my guest room:  I hardly spent a … [Read more...]

Guest Room Detail: Houndstooth Lampshade DIY

It all started with this... Fabulous blue houndstooth gift wrap.   I knew it would turn up in my guest room makeover, but I wasn't sure how at first. Then I found the perfect way to inject some modern into my vintage-y guest room when I spotted some plain little 'ole lamp shades at Target. The price was right at $8 each, but this look just wasn't cutting the mustard. Gift wrap to the rescue! Simplest DIY ever. Step … [Read more...]

Guest Room Reveal (Everything but the drapes…)

Anyone got a fire extinguisher handy??  I could swear my hair is on fire, the way I've been running like a crazy person! Today will be a short post -- and probably the only post of the week due to work and my son's graduation with an onslaught of grandparents, aunts, and boomerang kiddos. I promise I'll share more photos with you soon, along with sources, DIYs, and the whole nine yards, but for today, here's a peek at my guest room that is … [Read more...]

More Guest Room Progress :)

This week will probably kill me.  Just letting you know... and before it totally gets away from me, I wanted to show you MORE progress in the guest room (plus do a little thinking-out-loud to you!). I finished up that thrifted lamp makeover and got her situated on the dresser. Now that I'm pulling the room together slowly, I'm thinking of leaving the dresser as is for now -- maybe just switching out the hardware?  I like the color in … [Read more...]

Guest Room Lighting

Happy Monday, y'all.  After a rainy weekend of getting things done, I feel a little better about my To Do List, but there's still much to do in the coming weeks.  We finally got graduation announcements for my son in the mail, brought my daughter (and all her STUFF!) home from UGA, and ticked off several things I needed to do for school.  I was hoping to get more done on the guest room, but ran out of time.  Boo. Even though the weather didn't … [Read more...]
