  • Blue and Orange Thanksgiving Tablescape

    I honestly can’t believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving! It has really come so fast. I know everyone always says that but still! I sort of got “last minute” thrown into hosting a few family members for Thanksgiving and I’m a little nervous! Cooking for other people gives me some mad anxiety. Luckily, my hubby is a great cook and he’s totally taking charge of the turkey. I think I can handle the rest… ish… Our dining room isn’t quite “done” but I got it ll painted and my favorite light hung up. You can find the Linear Cage Chandelier here. I still need to get my window seats reupholstered, find some pillows for them and maybe do something fun/creative on the walls. Since I’m not a big “hostess” I wasn’t sure if/how I should decorate the table but then I saw this gorgeous tablescape from Pizzazzerie and since I had all of the blue and white glassware, I figured I could pull something similar together! I basically assembled some of my glassware and added a ton of fall foliage stems to…

  • DIY Christmas Wreath and Front Porch

    This post is sponsored by JOANN. All opinions and ideas are our own. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I am SO excited!! This year Christmastime will bring so many gifts to my family and I! During the Christmas season we’ll be welcoming our fifth baby boy into our family and I will finally get my boot off of my broken foot and be able to walk again! YAY! How’s that for an eventful Christmas!? To get into the spirit, I headed to JOANN and grabbed some festive items to give my front porch a makeover! I wanted to make a new wreath to compliment our newly painted, red, front door! We painted our house navy blue over the summer and I have been itching to paint the door red and it was perfect timing for the holidays! For the wreath, I was leaning toward something traditional but we wanted to put a unique, modern twist to it so Savannah and I decided to make a wreath out of a picture frame! I absolutely LOVE the rectangular shape…

  • DIY Fall Entry Way

    This post is sponsored by Krylon® Brand.. All ideas and opinions are our own. Fall is by far one of our favorite times of the year.  It seems like we wait all year for the temperatures to drop down to an enjoyable level. This year, I decided to give my entryway area a fall refresh to bring that feeling I love into my home with Krylon®) Brand. My old entry table was starting to look tired and worn but I absolutely love this piece so I knew it was time for a makeover. I used 3 cans of Krylon® ColorMaster™ Paint + Primer in Hunter Green It took 2-3 coats to cover the previous paint color. I absolutely love the vibrant green that is so on trend right now in home decor and interior design. I finished off the piece by painting the knobs with 3 coats of Krylon Premium Metallic in Copper Foil. I used less than a can for all of the knobs. I always like to do an extra coat of paint on things that will be handled…
