Loving this amazing printed burlap that I bought today! I've been trying to source out a neutral French fabric for months! This will be absolutely perfect!!! Table runner... Pillows... Market tote bags... Oh my! So excited about it! The vintage bicycle burlap will be perfect for a few pillows for my boys room... Or maybe a roman blind? So many options!

My mom found this little table for me and it's a perfect fit in the corner of my family room! I painted it Destin gulf Greenby CC Caldwell. It's a great match with the damask curtains! The sides drop down when it's not in use. when it is in use, it'll be just the spot for my hubby and I to rest our wine and cheese while we watch movies! Love the legs and the dark wax!

I found a great tutorial on Pinterest for roman blinds! I have detested my plastic mini blinds since we moved into our home 6 months ago. So... I took them down tonight, removed the bottom piece and slide off most of the slats. I only kept on 8 of them... Evenly spaced, and hot glued them to a curtain that I had in my closet... Reattached the bottom plate and hung it back up. So much better! Love the muted tones with just a touch of shimmer. Blends in nicely with the paint color, and lets the damask curtains in our family room, remain the main attraction. I have one more panel that will finish off the 2 sides, and the blind above my kitchen sink. Exactly what I needed to finally finish off the space. What do u think?

I had a canvas waiting for me to do something creative. I needed a piece of art in my piano studio. I ripped apart an old Royal Conservatory book, And glued it onto the canvas. I then transferred a graphic of this beautiful vintage crown, And added this quote from the famous hymn " how great thou art." I love the way it turned out!
