a vintage inspired wedding

Despite the destruction of the tornadoes last week, we headed to Huntsville for my cousin Jason’s wedding. We all felt so very blessed to be celebrating such a joyful occasion in the midst of the turmoil in our state. And because it was a blessing (and it was beautiful), I had [...]

french furniture and a request

  I told you I’d been painting like mad.  Getting the vault ready in a little over a week’s time was CRAZY and I. am. tired.  But…the plus is I’m also thrilled to be painting again.  The ebook was so much fun to create, but it’s kinda nice to have [...]

the vault is open!

  This has been fun. This, I mean.  My little vault space in Troy Antiques is officially open.  It’s got a long way to go, but it’s coming together.  Some of this you’ve seen before, and some you haven’t.   The vault entrance is so [...]

Sending out prayers

Well, friends, I’m on the way home. And I still have one…Troy and lower Alabama weren’t damaged, but we made a trip to Huntsville this weekend…for my cousin’s wedding. So while our homes weren’t damaged, we saw firsthand this weekend some of the [...]

repurposed finds for the vault

I’ve been painting like mad.  Mad, I tell you. I have worked on a piece or two of furniture everyday, and over the last week, began pulling together some smaller repurposed finds for the vault space. I never knew my paintbrush would last so long.  Or that I could fall in love [...]

me vs. the brick wall

I’m loving the character of the vault I’m moving my furniture into…and remember how I showed you the small patch of brick wall? I asked the owners, the Anne’s, if they would mind if I could remove some of the concrete to expose the original brick. Here it is [...]

reinventing a ladder, a scale, and a brick wall

A little repurposing never hurt anybody or anything. Especially not this pretty old ladder. While I’m sure it misses the days where many a foot rested on it to complete greatness, I’m confident that it will enjoy its lazy days as a magazine/book/vintage linen or [...]

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 [...]

Remember when I told you to come back to see how you could be featured on the blog? Well, it will soon be time for me to be gone on our mission trip to Honduras.  I hope to be able to pop in from time to time to show you some of the houses we’re building (we’re shooting [...]

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 [...]
