Sep 25th, 2014
Guest-Room-Wall-Mural-23.jpg

A few days ago, I asked you to weigh in on your opinion about these cute art pieces for the guest room! My fave is “Put your feet up and stay awhile.” I think it defines the feeling of the room perfectly. I want my guests to come and have a place to relax. And since my motto is always go BIG or go home, I decided to paint it on the wall! So, I guess I’m screaming RELAX to them as they walk in the door!?! Is that an … [Read more...]

  I’m a fan of RUGSUSA {this is NOT a sponsored post btw}. I’m just a sucker for a good deal, and they have come through for me again. This beauty was 80% off and FREE shipping. It goes perfect with our Guest Room color scheme. The sale is still going on if you need a rug. I always wait until there is a 80% off sale with free shipping because that is one heck of a deal, right!?!? When it came, I was a little … [Read more...]

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...]

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.

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}

Sep 8th, 2014
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. My project today is inspired by 'back to school' season.  The smell of school supplies always makes my heart flutter.  (Nerd alert!)  This memo board would be great to refresh … [Read more...]
