Home Tour – Part One

I’ve been wanting to share an actual home tour with you all, so I asked my friend Melody of Carpenter Photo for her assistance.  The world just looks prettier through her lens. I first have to preface this tour with how peaceful the home tour looks.  But I have to […]

My Family Room

My Christmas decorations were put away, and the sun came out (unfortunately a rarity here in January).  My family room was clean, so I ran for the camera!  I’ve shared this room before, but I thought I’d share it in a little more detail. I’ve done little accessory changes, but the […]

Tutorial for Using Chalk Paint on Fabric

Although I would not always recommend using chalk paint on fabric, it does work!  I’m sharing a tutorial on how I painted a velvet headboard… {If you’re new here, you may want to follow me on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest.} I’m still painting things… I found this amazing headboard at a flea market last […]

Spray Paint Thrift Store Dishes

I LOVE white dishes.  I love their simplicity and how they brighten up any space. I am obsessed with this Martha Stewart photo: Decor dishes can be expensive, but there is an inexpensive and easy DIY solution which includes (glossy) white spray paint and some thrift store (or garage sales) finds. I found my dishes […]
