Pinterest Party Friday #79


Happy Halloween everyone!!! I'm actually writing this on Thursday night. I just finished with a pretty little end table today, and Topher and I just found a cute little spot to shoot it. We also had a quick little dinner out while the kid was at work, and of course we had to hear about how it's so unfair that we go out to eat without her. She thinks this whole job thing is going to be the death of her. She was cute the other night when she came bursting in the door so excited, telling us … [Read more...]

Halloween Tour


Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I am big on going all out on the inside and the outside of my home. I usually try to keep with a theme., and this Halloween I kind of went with the Spooky, but Glamorous theme. I'm a girly girl, and I am all about sparkle, so of course I have to incorporate that into my decor. Let's start with my mantel. I have some sparkly black candelabras loaded with black hanging crystals, and I topped them with silver glitter candles.  Draping across the … [Read more...]

Super Spooky Skull Wreath


I set up all of my Halloween decor, but the only thing missing was a wreath for my front door. I still had my fall wreath hanging on the door alongside all of my ghosts and goblins, and that was so not working. I wanted something fast and easy, and this Super Spooky Skull Wreath was just the ticket! … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #78


Happy Friday everyone!!! This week seemed to fly by!  I finished some projects, put my Halloween decorations up, and I did a little babysitting for my niece. The weather here has been a little warm for fall, but I'm good with that. Not for the unnamed child though. She's not happy unless you can see your breath and can pull out her thickest sweaters. I've got some new projects up my sleeve for this weekend, and I need to do a little work on my furniture booth.  If you have some extra … [Read more...]

Grain Sack Striped Numbered Stacking Tables

Numbered- Stacking-Tables

It's Themed Furniture Thursday!! I always look forward to our monthly furniture group tour. It keeps me on my toes and helps me to remember to step out of my box.  This month's theme is Letters or Numbers. Now I have done a lot of projects that have had letters on them like my  Two Toned Coffee Table, French Stenciled TV Console, and my Parisian Painted Side Table . One thing I have never done is a project with numbers. My mom found these cute little stacking tables at an estate sale … [Read more...]

Plaster Painted China Hutch


Don't you just love Fall? The cool crisp air, the way the leaves turn beautiful colors, and warm yummy drinks you can enjoy in front of a fire? The only problem here is that even though it's the middle of October, it is still almost 90 degrees! So here we are still wearing flip flops, although the pool is closed people are still laying out, and the poor kids playing football and in the band are about to keel over from heat exhaustion. Here in Kansas, we don't usually get much of a Fall. We … [Read more...]

How to Stain Your Deck the Easy Way (and a HomeRight Giveaway)

Photo Oct 04, 4 03 26 PM

We have lived in our house for over 9 years. Since we bought new, we're approaching that time where things around the home start showing some age. The carpet starts looking ratty, the outside of the house needs a fresh coat, you have nicks on your walls, and appliances start going downhill. For the last year, we knew we needed to stain our deck, but we kept putting it off since it's not the most fun thing in the world to do, and it is totally time consuming. We were feeling like we were … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #78


Happy Friday guys!!! Originally, we were supposed to be in Houston right now getting ready to see Oprah. Unfortunately, my mom had to have surgery and wasn't able to go with me, so we Topher, the kiddo, and I left for a little getaway to Kansas City for the last few days. Today (Thursday) we ate way too much at Macaroni Grill, and then we decided to enjoy the gorgeous Fall weather and walk off some of our calories at the Plaza. We again ate way too much at Cracker Barrel, and then did a … [Read more...]

Pink Plaster Painted Vintage Chair


In the past, I would go to yard sales and see amazing upholstered vintage chairs, and I would pass them by. The fabric usually looked worn,  and I didn't want to dish out the money to have it reupholstered. Then a few months ago, I tried my hand at painting the actual fabric. It turned out great! So when my mom saw that a neighbor had left this outdated, peach number out on the curb, she scooped it up and brought it home for me to work a little magic on. … [Read more...]
