Peacock and Espresso Dining Table & Dealing with A Staining Disaster

OK guys. I'm going to share with you a super, super tough custom order I recently finished and why it is always important to have a back up plan because sometimes painting furniture can seriously throw you a curveball. (P.S. This is also applicable for everyday life...always have a Plan B. Always.)

Chalkboard Painted Books & Autumn Coffee Table

Morning everyone!  All I have to say is thank goodness it is starting to feel like fall around here in New England. It makes the whole, "let's decorate with pumpkins and gourds" so much more festive.
 
I'm getting my home already for an upcoming fall tour and I thought I would give you all a little glimpse at what I have been up to.
 
I started this weekend with my coffee table. And yes, this is totally a different coffee table than I had a month ago. What can I say? I paint and sell furniture. I keep my favorites.

How to Display Collections in Your Home

Hey there, friends!
 
It's no secret that I have several collections in my home.  It's sort of a love/hate kind of thing. While I love the items, I hate clutter. And there is a definite fine line between displaying the things you love and all out complete chaos and mess.
 
I thought today I would share some of my favorite collections with you all and show you how I have managed to add them to my home without being overwhelmed.

Book Page Leaf Branch & Contributor Post

Happy Friday! Since it is September and we are officially back to school I thought I would put together a quick and easy fall craft. Although, I have to say, 90 degrees and humid does not make me feel super autumny.
 

This project is fast, easy and inexpensive.  All you need is an old book, a leaf template (just Google "oak leaf" search images, and print on cardstock) pencil, scissors, hot glue, twine and a wispy branch (mine is a forsythia).

Late Summer Arrangement & Vintage Maya Table Cloth

*I was compensated for this post with supplies, however all content, thoughts and opinions are my own.

Can you all believe that summer is practically over? It seriously flew by for us. We took some great trips to the beach (our favorite place ever) and I made some major decisions that will completely change our lives in the months to come. Also, we'll be starting back homeschooling later on this week, which is always exciting and challenging.
 
Today I thought I would share with you all a wonderful no cost floral arrangement I created from past-their-prime blooms from my yard and also share the most gorgeous table cloth that was gifted to me by Vintage Maya.
 
(And, yes, I know. Cat on the table. On the table cloth. I only let him get away with it because he is so cute and likes to be in pictures...)

Blogger Stylin' Home Tour: Favorite Room

Welcome everyone! I am so thrilled to be taking part in Blogger Stylin' Home Tours again and I especially love the idea of seeing so many favorite rooms.
 



If you're coming over from Jen Rizzo then you have definitely seen a fantastic space. I always find so much inspiration in Jen's home.

The room that I finally decided on for this tour is our entry. It is more than just the welcoming center of our home it is also where some of my very favorite pieces of furniture and accessories are. Since it is a wide, open space it also serves as my office.
