A Tale of Two Tables

Faux zinc table

Today I got to do a little bit of painting. I had two tables that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. The first was a Duncan and Fyfe occasional table. I had to deconstruct the top because the bottom of the cabinet was badly warped, but it still looks great! I finished the […]

Custom paint for a gorgeous nursery!


Recently I had the opportunity to help put a nursery together for a little girl. I love little girl rooms, and this one is just gorgeous!

An {Almost} Fall Table & Vintage China


I’m stuck on my Dining Room It’s past due for a makeover. Last year, I hired an interior designer to help me get out of my super traditional golds-greens-reds color scheme.

I was working  around the grandaddy oak in the front yard  and came across this humongous conk. It’s about 10 inches across! Sometimes this can mean the tree is sick, but […]

The Home Tour: a 1940s Bungalow Entry and Living Room

Home Tour Feature

Our 1940′s Bungalow Home Tour It’s with some trepidation that I’ve decided to post a home tour. I don’t think my house is really ready to be “toured,” it’s not done yet. But then my dear hubby pointed out that never, in the history of ever, has any house we’ve ever lived in been “done.” Point […]

A Fall Porch Display

Fall Porch Feature

Fall is falling! The cooler weather we’ve been having recently inspired me to finish up the front yard project, and clean up my front porch. The old fencing shelves by my front door, however, were still pretty pitiful. The only thing on them was two clay pots full of dirt from last year’s plants. Sad […]
