Just for Fun… Some Easy Project Ideas

I am loving these looks right now... apparently I am ALL about the COLOR this week! ūüôā Not sure where the photos came from, I've just shimmied them into the "inspiration" folder on my desktop over the past week. Notice a common theme (other than color) going on here? All of these items would make... Continue Reading →

Maybe I'm a little dramatic, but this blue pine table from One Kings Lane is the stuff I dream about at night! The vintage-y goodness of the shape, the colors, the chippy paint... okay, I'm drooling. Even better? It's on clearance!!! I love it so so much, but unfortunately am not on the market for... Continue Reading →

When to (Not) Quit: Tricolor Table

Remember my post about ¬†knowing when to quit? Apparently I don't. And that's not always a bad thing. Here's a picture of the dining set¬†finally¬†finished (and I'm so, so happy with it!!!)

Loving Lilly for Spring!

Being from the South, I love Lilly-- Lilly Pulitzer, that is! There's just something about getting back to your roots and remembering where you came from that makes home design that much more special. I grew up in a community with lots of golf and horse races, so that means lots of bright colored dresses.... Continue Reading →

All about the brights is right. These babies came from the "Free" section on Craigslist (you may also recognize them stuffed into the car on the "Prius Problems" post.) This picture gives you a good idea of how much difference some color can make. I'm still debating putting a coat of lacquer on the chairs.... Continue Reading →

Getting Inspired

If you're anything like me, you can scroll through sites for hours and hours to find inspiration. Wait, is that only me?Mayyybe I'm a bit obsessed. I love going to new stores, looking at catalogs, and, yes, I do sometimes pay more attention to the props than the models in magazines. I've been known to... Continue Reading →
