Once upon a time I blogged nearly every single day, was on top of my custom order pieces, had major decorating plans and commented on all my fave blogs. Remember that girl? Well. She totally lost her way this summer and got distracted by life, which has been a bit sad and seriously awesome all rolled into one.
If you've read Number Fifty-Three for any length of time then you know I'm not big on sharing personal info. I have really nothing against it and love blogs that do. The thing that nobody really knew was that for, like years, I have been pretty miserable and sad. And that made it hard to share.
Seriously, how long has it been since I've done a Things I'm Loving This Week post? Like months way too long. That's how long. And I promise an explanation for my weird and sporadic blogging over the last few months. I promise. Like maybe even next week. Because even though I don't share tons of personal stuff here...for real, my life has completely been flipped upside down and is just in a crazy new place that you all should know a little bit more about.
Hey everyone! Forgive my lateness in getting this out this morning. My lovely guys have given me whatever makes-you-want-to-curl-up-in-ball-with-a-box-of-tissues illness they had last week. Love how even though my boys are homeschooled we still go through the usual fall sicknesses every year.
But, I have something super exciting to share with you all today. My good buddy, Cassie from Primitive & Proper has organized this awesome series where we will be updating a room in our home over the next six weeks. How's that for motivation to get something accomplished!
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.)
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.
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).

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...)
Hi, I'm Angela and I am the creator of the blog Number Fifty-Three. I am super passionate about things like decorating on a budget and repurposing found items. In addition to blogging, I, along with my boyfriend, also paint, refinish and bring vintage and antique pieces back to life for a wide base of clients in the New England and New York state areas. We absolutely love taking an old, discarded piece of furniture and making it new again and it’s such an amazing feeling to know that many of these end up as focal points in our client’s homes. Welcome!
Thank you so much for visiting Number Fifty-Three! Unless otherwise noted, I have taken all the pictures on this blog and have come up with all the decorating ideas and tutorials myself. One of the fantastic things about blogging is that you can reach so many people! I welcome you to share what you love from this blog, but please remember to link back and/or give me credit.
