This is a sponsored post.

Hey everyone!

So, as you all know, we've been working on updating the dining room in our 100 year old farmhouse ever since we moved in two months ago.

Modern Farmhouse Coffee Table

We've lived in our farmhouse for almost two months and I have been looking for this... (what I imagined in my head coffee table) for about three. Furniture pickings seem so slim lately!

Primitive Autumn Decorating

The damp, chilly, gloomy days of November in New England have definitely arrived this week. It leaves you with a cold, raw feeling, but I secretly kind of enjoy it. It just makes you want to wrap up in a blanket, get cozy and enjoy your home.

Last week, I went up to visit my Mom and she does primitive in such a spectacular way.

Decorating with Bittersweet & Dining Room Rug Inspirations

The weather in New England has been seriously beautiful and warm lately.  So, earlier this week, I took a little walk to investigate our property and I was excited to see some bittersweet growing here and there. It's an invasive vine, but I'm kind of always drawn to its beauty and color.

Farmhouse Dining Room Updates & Plans

We've lived in our Connecticut farmhouse for four weeks now and, honestly, I feel like I have gotten very little accomplished.

I spent the month before we moved planning and planning and then when we got to the actual house, the color choices just seemed all wrong. Has that happened to you?

How to Create a Rustic Autumn Display

Hey everyone! The unpacking and cleaning is going well here at the new house. My patience is a little lacking because, as typical, I want things done like yesterday.

Actually, I'm kind of having like a I'm dying to paint because then the rooms will really start to come together coupled with a damn I really don't want to paint because it's such a chore and I need to do all the trim. I'm sure you've all felt that way.

My goal for earlier this week was to at least clear a path in the dining room so every four steps we didn't need to move a box to create a path. I mostly succeeded. There are still a couple of random boxes in a corner, but it no longer is the command station of moving that is was a week ago.

Since I got the room looking halfway civilized, I decided to decorate the table for fall.

Weathered Gray Coffee Table

Hey friends.
Thanks to my love, I'm becoming more and more comfortable with sanding and staining furniture. It's really taking Number Fifty-Three in a new direction, furniture wise, as I am now able to take on way more diversified projects.
