Fabric Backed Console


I found this bookshelf/cabinet-ish piece at a yard sale for $10. It had a veneer top and cheap paneling on the back. I painted the entire piece with Plaster Paint in Sweet Cream and distressed it. I then removed the back piece of paneling, sprayed it with spray adhesive, and laid a piece of fabric over it. I then laid a heavy piece of wood on top to hold it in place until the adhesive, and then I cut off any extra fabric. I then nailed the panel back in place. … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #75


Happy Friday everyone!! Is it just me, or has this week been very chaotic? I have felt under the weather all week, but as a typical mom and wife ... the show must go on. It just makes everything feel that much harder though -- like you're going in slow motion. I am going to two different doctors today, so lets hope one of them can get it figured out. I just finished one project which I will be posting tomorrow. I know you're probably thinking "Tomorrow? you never post on Saturdays", but … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #74


Happy Pinterest Party Friday!!! Topher had to go to Vail, CO for a business conference this week, so the unnamed child and I decided to tag along. We stayed at the Marriott Resort Vail Mountain -- which is absolutely beautiful! It has this cozy lodge feel, but is totally luxurious. Glad Topher's company was paying for it because this place ain't cheap. The kiddo and I walked around each day at these beautiful outdoor malls right behind the hotel. It was 60 degrees, and while we were … [Read more...]

Easy Fall Wreath (and How My Parents Might Kill My Pets)


Remember how I said it was so cool last weekend that it got me motivated to do my Fall Home Tour? Well, that was short lived because it has been stinkin' hot here the last couple of days. Good news is we are heading to Vail today where the high is a whopping 68 degrees!  The unnamed child is so excited to get to wear her beloved leggings once again. Don't worry, my parents are going to be staying at the house to take care of the fur babies — God help them (my parents ... I think). So, … [Read more...]

How I Shopped My Home to Decorate for Fall

PicMonkey Collage

Happy Monday everyone!! Hope you had a great weekend! Sadly, I turned one year closer to the big 4-0, but I did have a great day. I started off the morning by going to a great vintage sale where I scored some great goodies. If you want to see them, head over to my Instagram account. My mom then made me a big lunch, and she made it all fancy ... even bringing out her china. It was nice having the whole family there, and I'm pretty sure I watched my one year old niece eat her body weight … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #73


Happy Friday everybody!! This week went by in a hurry! I think every week should be a 4 day week! I felt pretty cruddy this week, having a migraine for 4 days solid ... and just to spice things up, there was some vomiting, chills, and a fever.  I had a table due, so fever or no fever I had to get it done. I was sweating buckets the whole day while I worked on it, but by God, I got it done! My birthday is on Saturday, so my cousin took me out to dinner last night, and I should be at the … [Read more...]
