Vintage Egg Prints


Since it's Easter week, I thought it would be fitting to share with you my recent art purchases from a flea market. They are vintage egg prints that I had framed for our living room. 



The speckled eggs are so subtle in color, yet they have a beautiful sage green background that makes them stand out. 


Lately the simplicity and beauty of nature has inspired me in decorating our home. The framed prints make a great addition hanging on either side of the cased opening leading into the kitchen.  




I also bought these vintage fern prints from the same vendor. I had them framed in a chunky gold frame for our kitchen dining area. You can see more details about that space here.   




If your interested I found these (1, 2, 3) free vintage inspired bird's egg printables for instant art. 

Wishing you and your family a blessed and happy Easter!

Queen Anne Bench Makeover


I was visiting my sister in Atlanta several months ago and found this beautiful bench for $20 at a thrift store! It had such great bones and it only needed to be reupholstered, so I snatched it up.



Here's what it looked like when I bought it. It was dated and in desperate need of a makeover.


I already had the drop cloth fabric from previous projects, including this Drop Cloth Bench in our master bedroom. So it ended up only costing me $20 to have it reupholstered. Now I have a new bench for $40.


I really love how it turned out and how well it fits on this small wall in our kitchen nook area. You can read more about this space here.


Have a great weekend!

Spring Kitchen Nook

Hey there. I hope you've had a wonderful week! I don't know about you, but I'm really enjoying the warmer weather. It's been super busy for us around the store lately, which is always a good thing! Now I'm ready to kick off the weekend.


First I want to share with you a little more spring decor from around our home. I freshened up the kitchen nook table with crisp white dishes and napkins along with birds nest. I added some color with the green vase and floral stems.   


When we built our house I knew I would need a narrow kitchen nook table to accommodate the space. That was no problem since we already had the perfect size table in our store. It was originally made to be island height, so we just shortened the legs. I love that the table was custom made from a customers late father. It was bare wood when we bought it, so I just painted and distressed it to go with our decor.


The wood dining chairs were a great find years ago and the cream head chairs were recently bought new. I love to mix old and new pieces throughout our home.


Another thing I love about this space is the natural sunlight. I'm still debating about hanging linen drapes on these windows.

New House: Laundry Room

Today I'm sharing a room around our house that's used quite often. Whether it's a daily or weekly chore, the laundry room needs to be organized and efficient. Recently I've been purging, sorting, and straightening up this space to work better for our needs. 


Our laundry room has three sets of double cabinets that are wonderful for storing cleaning supplies, mops and brooms, along with dirty clothes baskets. For a multifunction space they also store extra kitchen platters, tupperware, small appliances, and items that aren't used as much.


I found this vintage rolling laundry cart at a flea market. It's so convenient for folding laundry right out of the dryer.


This hanging outdoor lantern is from Lowe's. It adds a little vintage touch to this space along with the old galvanized locker baskets.


I organized everything in the cabinets above the washer and dryer using metal containers, baskets, and glass jars that I already had on hand.  


They store all of our small tools, cleaning rags, light bulbs, and clothes pins. I keep my dryer sheets in a wooden bowl. It's all about pretty storage and decluttering for me.


I've had this chalkboard since our first house. It finally found a permanent spot in the laundry room with a bright green boxwood wreath for some added color. 

This view from the laundry room is looking into the garage hallway and the half bathroom right off the kitchen.


The best part about reorganizing is having less stuff and more extra space. Now that the room is so simple and clean it certainly makes it much easier to do laundry!


Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Mantel

To celebrate the start of a new season that's upon us, I thought I would share the Spring Mantel at our store. It's nature inspired and all freshened up for Spring. 


The gray painted and distressed wooden pallet became the perfect backdrop for the mantel display. I used branches, logs, birds, green moss, and a succulent for a natural theme.


The folded book was so simple to make. All you need is a cover-less paperback book and five minutes to fold sections of pages... and that's it!


Sweet little birdies perched on branches.


I bought the wooden nest letters and simply painted them to coordinate with the backdrop. 


I love the aged look of this mantel in our store. It's salvaged from New Orleans and has tons of character, years of chippy paint and the curved detailed top is just gorgeous. 



Have a wonderful week!

Spring Dining Room


Last month I showed you a sneak peek of our spring dining room when I shared the Spring Vignettes from around our home. 


Since then I have added more color to the dining room tablescape using bright green napkins and moss, along with nature inspired birds nest, grapevine, antlers, and speckled eggs.


I also shared the sweet story and inspiration behind these birds nest paintings, found here.


This is a great view looking into the kitchen and the breakfast nook area.


I decided to use grapevine wreaths for a more affordable option instead of chargers or place mats. I love the way they add texture to the table setting. 



This bright spring wreath was created by adding floral stems to a large grapevine wreath. So simple for such a big impact!


I used white china to help contrast against the brown branches and nests. 


Here's one last look of the dining room.

Mirrored Doors


We found these rare, antique doors from Australia on a recent buying trip. They have such amazing, chippy original mustard and light gray paint that can't be duplicated. 


We took the glass panels out and replaced them with mirrors cut to size for the doors.


They casually lean against the wall in our master bedroom behind our antique dresser. I love the way they reflect light so beautifully. They make such a grand statement since they are so tall.



I'm a sucker for salvaged architectural pieces and I have decorated with several of these mirrored doors in our new house. We even used antique doors with mirrors in one of our bedrooms downstairs as closet doors.


I hope you have a great day!
