Side Table Makeover



Be sure to follow us on Pinterest and Instagram to never a thing!! 


This little red table has been with me since Christmas 2008.  It has never once had a makeover!! Wow!   I don't think I have ever owned anything that long with out updating it somehow!!  I guess it is time to give this side table a makeover!! 

A couple of months before Christmas that year in 2008.  I was in Pier 1 Imports.  I found an awesome little table.  It is shaped exactly like the one pictured below only it is smaller in diameter and taller. It is more like a mini entry table.  You can see a pic of that table over here.

I like red, and at the time I was sort of on a red and yellow kick. Most of my decor was red and yellow.  For some reason and I can't remember why but I decided that I wanted to paint the entry table..... Can you guess what color???

14 Ideas + Solutions for a Gallery Wall Behind the TV


Be sure to follow us on Pinterest and Instagram to never a thing!!


Currently this is what my TV console area and behind the tv looks right now.....blah....nothing too
 fancy.  Actually, nothing at all!  

Since I already boosted the storage in this space it is now time to make this area more appealing visually!! 

 I thought that I would share some ideas that will help inspire me for a new gallery wall behind my TV...




I first off I love this modern wall.  The pop of color is so fun!! I really really really want to like modern art and design, I think it is just gorgeous.  Except, whenever I look around my house all I see is vintage and classical styles.  Is there a way to mix them both....?

Entry Door Makeover Part 1

Be sure to follow us on Pinterest and Instagram to never miss a thing!! 

If you have been reading along here then you might remember me talking about our old 1950's home that we purchased a couple of year ago.

Today I want to show you another feature about the house.....

The original doors..... from 1953!!! 

I was surprised to see that the house still had hallow core exterior doors.  It was a bit of a challenge keeping the house cool in the summer.  Both winters that we have spent here you could feel the cold air coming through under the doors...

Here are the BEFORE pics.  

High gloss black paint!!










When we moved in we had so many other project that needed to be taken care of (like moving the furnace so it wasn't in the middle of our living room-  no joke) and the kitchen remodel
New doors were not in our budget right away....

In an attempt to keep the temperature more even kill I painted the black front door grey. I used left over paint from when we painted the shop.
