Happy October all you ATT people! This month, Sam and I have been slammed.  Wedding season is in full force!  However, we never let cooking and designing parties for 300 slow us down from getting our hands dirty in the craft room or garage.  Today's post shares a special place in our hearts, because we got back to our roots with a little dumpster diving. If you have visited us over at zestitup.com, you probably know … [Continue reading…]

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 … [Continue reading…]

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 … [Continue reading…]

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 … [Continue reading…]

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 … [Continue reading…]
