Fern Stand Table

I found a rather yucky fern stand with great lines and a cheap price...



 so I knew that I couldn't pass it up.


Hutch Decor 101-107

Before I show you how I have my hutch displayed currently, let's go down memory lane...shall we?

First came the hutch, found at a thrift store. Then I painted it to lighten and freshen it up. I fell in love!

 I used Annie Sloan Old White and Old Ochre Chalk Paint.
Now let's look at the transformations in decor on the hutch...


SkyView Back Yard!

This post is sort of crazy in that my young and cute, handy dandy handyman was up on my roof fixing some shingles and he said, "Go get me your camera, and I will take pictures of your backyard from up here for your blog"! Isn't he just wonderful thinking of you guys? To take these pictures, he was standing at the top of the roof right where the arrow is...crazy guy! Since he had my camera, I don't have a picture of him on the roof! However, I did have his camera and took one of him standing at this location. I should get it from him. It's wild to see him standing at this point, up so high!


No more Dirty Little Secret!

Remember my post on our Dirty Little Secret where I shared with you the rot that our wood siding and trim had after only 15 years? If not, you can see it HERE.


Can You Stand ANOTHER One?

If you follow my blog, you will remember that recently, I did two posts on columns that we have and you can see more on that HERE & HERE.


Watermelon Slice Anyone?

I found a great piece to go with my famously painted Watermelon Propane Tank...


Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Do people not have vision? Or do they just not like to do the work?

I don't know which, but I had picked up an antique oval mirror at a garage sale and basically did nothing to it, but put it in my antique mall booth. 

No one wanted it after months of being displayed and a priced decline.


New Mud Room!

I am so excited to show you my  

        New Mud Room.

It came about quite by accident. You see, the builder added a walled in room off the original two car garage that has access via a doorway from the garage, a doorway into the house (laundry room) and a doorway to the outside. This room is about 14 feet long by 7 feet wide with very high ceilings.

Initially, we used this room as a "Tool Room" to house our tools and do projects in. But that was before the additional new two car hobby garage was built.
