The BEST & Easy Homemade Bread and Roasted Garlic

Hi there!

I know that Number Fifty-Three has traditionally been a place to share inexpensive DIY crafts, furniture makeovers and decorating, but over the past year, I've started sharing recipes, too. I hope you all like this addition! The truth is, I love food and cooking and I love to share recipes that have been handed down to me or that I've tried and think are the best.

Today, I'm sharing the best homemade bread recipe that I discovered years ago on Pinterest.  This is something that my family asks for often and I don't mind making it because it's only a few ingredients and you don't need any special equipment.  You can find the recipe here.

Budget Friendly Vintage Modern Mudroom

I've shared images of my mudroom on social media over the last few months and just wanted to document it here too, before these last couple of days of summer disappear.

I actually purchased a new, more subdued rug this past weekend and have a few styling ideas for autumn that I'm almost ready to work on, Fall is usually my favorite time of year, but I'm feeling a bit down this year and a bit sad that school is beginning again tomorrow.

Anyway, I did a mini makeover on this space in the spring to simplify it all. I gave the floors a fresh coat of white paint (and I think despite weekly scrubbing and a large rug that it will be a yearly chore). I also repainted the walls black added back the closet door (with trim), removed the shelf and replaced it with the chair and new accessories, and lastly, replaced the ceiling light. You can see the previous incarnation here.

Hi everyone!

I'm so excited to share this antique inspired secretary desk with you. It's been such a long time coming as I tried to figure out how I wanted to refinish it and where it could fit in my home.

Decorating with Wildflowers and Living Room Tweaks

The last time I blogged, a couple of months ago (eek!), I had just rearranged and purged my living room. I'm happy to say, that it's still the same, with just a few minor d├ęcor tweaks and changes...which is a complete miracle for me!
