Distressed Chest

Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share with you this small pine chest that I updated for our store. Someone actually gave us this piece of furniture for free- can't beat that! It was one of the many projects that I worked on this past week. 


Since this piece had such simple lines, I thought it needed to be distressed for added character.


Here's what it looked like before.



I simply updated the hardware from brass to oil rubbed bronze with spray paint.


I'm excited how this freebie chest looks with a fresh coat of paint.

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.
