School-Inspired Side Table

You know how a lot of my pieces are white or very muted?  And a lot are layered and dry-brushed?  All I mean is, as a painter, I get into a look and I settle comfortably under the covers.  Hug a pillow and snuggle in for a while. But every now and then, it’s nice to surprise [...]

Spring Happenings and a side table

I’ve been taking a mini-vacation. You may have noticed; you may not.  For the last few weeks I’ve posted less, hung out with my kiddos more. After releasing the ebook, some down time was much needed.  It’s important to me to remember why I started blogging in the [...]

troy antiques sneak peek

I never knew I would open a space in an antiques shop, but it always seemed like a good idea…and a fun one.  That’s sort of been the theme for me the last year.  Never would have imagined…but here goes. I wanted you to see the before of my little vault [...]

hall table revamp

There is more than one nook in my home that is screaming for attention.  For some style.  For my style.  But life…peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, dirty diapers, and rooms needing more help get more my notice. But yesterday, this little nook in my hallway seemed to be [...]

chalk paint winner & spring decorating

After working on my spring mantel, it was time to lighten up the entire living room. For me, that meant cleaning off LOTS of surfaces, and letting go of some of the heavy accessories.   I added some pops of blue and green into by pulling throw pillows from other rooms.   [...]

becoming, chapter two

To say that I was overwhelmed by the response you guys left after I wrote Becoming’s Chapter One last week is an understatement.  I tried to sit down that day and reply to each of your 150+ comments, and I just honestly couldn’t.  I felt so raw, so exposed.  Wonderful. [...]

chalk paint and a giveaway!

Remember the coffee table preview?  And my new profession of love for a certain paint? Here it is.  Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint.  The lovely and talented Miss Mustard Seed revealed it on her blog and we had spoken that week…I was sold to try it.   And after painting [...]

Becoming, Chapter One

Well, I’m doing it. I’m going to share something very private and very real with you here.  I was very convicted a while back to tell my story.  Not because it’s great, or I am.  But because it needs to be told…I learned that last week. For the first time, I [...]

mom’s breakfast room table-before and a preview

My sweet mom has been waiting on me for a while to get started on her breakfast room table, and it finally came time to start working on it.  Her kitchen was remodeled a couple of years ago, and she was ready for the breakfast room to tie in a little more.   She loves red, loves [...]

repurpose a flea market frame

Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments yesterday on my spring mantel. As I mentioned yesterday, my favorite part was the repurposed flea market frame.  It’s certainly not a hard project, but one that appears tricky.  Not at all, though. First, you’ll want to blow [...]

Spring Mantel

It seems like just yesterday I was decorating the mantel for spring last year.  Three seasons, one new camera, and no more lost-Ava-pounds later, it was time to do it again. It all started with my flea market finds with the mantel mania queen.  It was fun bouncing ideas around and [...]

Dining Room Inspiration

After sharing with you that it was time to make some changes in the dining room, I began pulling together some inspiration for myself. The things I love about the space and want to celebrate….the high and coffered ceilings, the back focal wall, the natural light and windows. [...]

Darby Drake’s Owl

There’s something in this picture that I’m crazy about. And it’s not the vintage seltzer bottle.  (although I’m crazy about that too.) It’s my new favorite accessory…I’ve been getting questions from you guys and people all over town, people I [...]

Kids X-Table

After we finished the playroom last year, we knew we would continue adding accessories and functional pieces over time.  We desperately needed a table for school work, and for Ava’s serious addiction to coloring. Instead of buying one, we decided we would build our own.   [...]

Coffee Table Preview & Dining Room in the Works

  It’s like I’ve got a fire under my pa-tooty.  Or toes.  Or, well, anyway, the fire’s lit and I’m a woman on a mission.  There were some updates behind the scenes this weekend on the blog, and not being able to think about posting was good for the [...]

two shady ladies

  Well, it was time for this shady lady and I to head to some local flea markets.   We had major scoping out to do. I needed some mantel stuff. She needed a rug.   We didn’t get her rug, which I now realize was quite selfish of me.  Because we spent all the day [...]

little people, big world

  Now that the dust from the ebook has settled, it’s time for spring cleaning, stolen kisses between a mama and her babies, lots of chocolate chip cookie evenings. And chores.  Yes, it’s time for chores. The little people are learning to love unloading the [...]
