Painted Fabric on Furniture Tutorial

ATT Painted Fabric 1

I recently acquired a lovely turn-of-the-century settee.  When Kennadi begged to have it in her room, it was challenging to "Imagine" (stay with me, it'll click) how this... could possibly be made to go in a room that looks like this... We couldn't just "Let it Be," so I told Kennadi "We Can Work it Out!" (see what I did there?  You know, the Beatles...) Anyone who knows me knows that most problems in my … [Read more...]

Guest Room Part 2 : Color Scheming and feel of the room.

bed-and-breakfast-copy.jpg

The guest room is torn to shreds at the moment. Good times. In fact, it’s spilling over into my safe haven office. Dear guests, you can’t come for a few more days or you will not have a place to stay. But sometimes things have to get much worse before they get better, right?!? The color scheme for this room is grounded with several shades of grey and accents will be a grassy green, a small splash of coral, and a few … [Read more...]

Guest Room Series Part 1: The room is reclaimed.

guest-room-makeover-32.jpg

Down came the nursery decor, and the guest room decorating is in full force. I have to admit I couldn’t get rid of the crib yet. What does that mean? I have no idea. Sometimes I wish I could see the future. Plus, my family keeps asking me if we are “done” having kids. I can’t decide if I just want to be done or if we are actually done. So, for the time being, the crib is in our storage unit.  No, this is not an … [Read more...]

Greetings, from the Fancy Farmgirls! We’re  Marg and Liz,  “the twins”. We like to bring old furniture back to life. Each fall, with the start of the new school year, we get the itch to change it all up. Décor wise that is.   Maybe it’s because we have a few moments to catch our breath and take an inventory of the state of our homes. There are some pieces in my home that I still love, but I’m tired of seeing it on … [Read more...]

Cricut VS Silhouette which one is better? {an unsponsored opinion}

SILHOUETTE-VS-CRICUT-WHICH-ONE-IS-BETTER.jpg

  I get a lot of questions about my Silhouette on a daily basis, and long time readers know that I’ve been “pro” Silhouette for a long time. Heck, I have sooo many Silhouette projects, I stopped counting.  BUT, I’m sure you have noticed the hubbabaloo from all over the web about the “new” Cricut machine. I’m a trier and a doer. I have to try things myself. So although I had some great blog friends tell me about … [Read more...]

A big hello to the coolest people I know!  I'm happy to be back with you today.  It's Kenz here from Interiors By Kenz.  Is it just me, or did this summer completely fly by?  I'm still scratching my head about how we ended up here in September.
