End Table…New Beginning

Gray end table 2

An End Table Gets a New Look Don’t you love giving a piece of furniture a “new beginning?” That’s what happened to this end table…it’s not the end, but the beginning…of something great. I found this table at Restore for $25 and knew that I wanted it as soon as I saw the “bamboo” look […]

I’ve gotta say it…I love IKEA! I do not get to go there often, so when I do…I love it! This past weekend, my son moved into his dorm at college. While I hate to see him go, I couldn’t help but be a little giddy, because there’s an IKEA just a few miles away! […]

Here are few of my favorites from Beth’s blog, Chinoiserie Chic: I LOVE the coffee […]

Weather Forecast On The Wall

barometer-finished

Have you ever come across something that you really didn’t know what it was…didn’t really need it…didn’t really like it…but got it anyway? I tend to do that a lot. On my last trip to Restore, I came across this “weather station” for $5.00. At the time, I thought “barometer,” but have since learned it’s […]

Anchors Away…Best Ever!

I have to share with you an item that has changed the way I look at hanging things on my walls. It is the best wall anchor that I have EVER used! So easy and will hold anything! (at least anything that I’ve hung!)

Window Shopping Wednesday

It’s Window Shopping Wednesday once more and this week I paid a visit to my local Pier1. The one thing I love about Pier1 is the abundance of color that embraces you as you walk through the door! If you do not like color, then you are definitely in the wrong place. One specific trend […]

Do you remember the scene in Legally Blonde when Elle is talking on her pink fur phone? We all know that Elle loved her fur! Elle was always inspirational! I decided to incorporate some furalicious accessories into my daughter’s bedroom.

Gather Around The Table

kitchentable

Nothing exemplifies “home” like the kitchen, and in extension, the kitchen table. It’s the place that we gather and hopefully, communicate and spend time with one another. Therefore, it should be a space that welcomes us and brightens our day. We should decorate our table in a way that we can easily utilize and enjoy […]

~How to Sew a Pillow~   No, it’s not the Sound of Music…we’re going to learn how to sew a pillow! I began sewing about 20 years ago, but I wanted to refresh and refine my skills. I knew that there were probably some “better ways to do things.” So, I signed up for a […]

Window Shopping Wednesday

Window Shopping at Lowe’s   Today’s window shopping took place at another one of my favorite places to shop…Lowe’s. Sometimes I feel like I spend more time there than at home!

Chair Re-Do in Navy Blue

Navy Chair

Navy Chair Makeover   Last Thursday, I found myself at Restore. I got there early enough that I was one of the first through the door. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a whole lot in the way of great furniture, but I did find this chair. I knew immediately it could be a great chair re-d0! Looks […]

It Was Colonel Mustard, In The Library, With The Candlestick

Thursday, I made a visit to our local Restore “store.” I stumbled across some candlesticks that made me say, “Those are so little and cute!” Usually, when that crosses my mind, the next thought is, “Oh yes. Those are going home with me.” Here is what I scored for $3.25! Six adorable candlesticks! Aren’t they […]

Dishes Under Glass

Dishes

In my kitchen, I have a set of cabinets that have glass doors. For years, I wanted glass door cabinets and when we moved into our current house, I got my wish! Be careful what you wish for… Don’t get me wrong…I love them and I’m glad I have them…but they can cause some minor […]
