I got 2 pretty new rugs for cheap!

At Lowes!   Thanks to Emily @ Decorchick for the tip on rugs and Melissa @ 320 Sycamore I now have 2 new gorgeous rugs!  They are $17 on clearance and I had 10% coupon.  I called my 2 local Lowes and had them look to see if they had any in stock and sure enough they had 2, but couldn't find them in the store.  So I went myself and looked for them and found them.  So sometimes you just have to go and look for yourself.   They are indoor/outdoor, but will probably use them both in the house.  I moved my dining room table in my breakfast nook and put the rug underneath....LOVE THEM!  The item # 147081  The picture on the other blogs look kind of tan, but mine are greenish color.  Still works for me! 

Hope you all find some!!!

Keep Calm and Carry on

I love this quote!  I have been wanting to do a couple of these for a while now.  I needed something in the space between the two windows in my bedroom.  I love the gold/yellowish color too!  The mat in frame was for a collage, so I covered it with tan striped fabric and now it looks like a mat at fraction of the cost.  Plus you can do any design it!

I hung one upstairs in the landing.  I love it in blue too!  Hopefully since I hung it there my kids will be nice to each other.  Ha!

We have to got to get some paint on those white walls!

I'm Back!

Well I finally came off my crutches 2 weeks ago.  I go back in 2 more weeks and will come out of this boot and will have air cast for a little while.  I have been trying to get the house back in some sort of order.  The majority has been unpacked so I have got to rearrange and decorate the house.  We are really loving our new house...of course we really miss being close to family.   Everything is blooming so beautifully outside.  We have tons of rose bushes and they are gorgeous!   The people that lived here before us did a incredible job at landscaping.  I am not too good at that so that was definitely a plus!  We have wonderful neighbors that have made us feel so welcome.  I have tons of projects to do, so I will keep you updated on those.  I will give you a tour of our house in the upcoming posts.  My husband painted our living room and kitchen grey.  We are painting the foyer, the hall upstairs soon.  We are probably going to get scaffolding to foyer because the ceiling is so tall. 

We got new couch and love seat because our sectional would not fit in the living room.  I am really loving my fireplace!  I just don't love the gold on the insert.  That is a upcoming project.  I would really love something new to go under the TV.  My buffet got moved to the foyer and I really like it there.  This room still needs tweaking. 

The curtains definitely need to be hung higher, but for right now it will do. 

The living room and kitchen is open, so that works really well for us.  
 I will post more pictures of my kitchen because the batteries in my camera died.  I have tons to do and I can't wait show it all to you!  Thanks for hanging in there with me!

I really have a good reason!

Sorry I have been missing for awhile!  We have moved and the day after we got here to our new house I fell and broke my ankle in 2 places.  I had surgery 4 days later and now I am in boot for 6 weeks.  So not hardly much going on her besides laying around for awhile.  I can't wait to get going again and get my new house decorated.  My mom has done alot of the decorating for me with me directing where everything goes.  Hopefully I can get pictures up soon!  We still have alot of painting to do!  I love our new house!  My backyard is awesome and my kids and the dog love it!!

Here is a picture of the outside

I will see you all soon!!

Loving these fabric banners!

I made these fabric banners for both of my girls rooms.  I really love them!  I will definitely do more of these especially for birthday parties and they were super easy to make!

I like to mix up the fabrics especially with different textures.  Both of my girls loved them!  No sewing just hot glue.  Easy peasy!

My hubby got me the floor lamp to the left of my couch for Christmas and it is exactly what I wanted.  It looks alot the one from Pottery Barn and a whole lot cheaper.  It came from Home Depot and they have a pretty good selection of floor lamps.   I couldn't find one anywhere else that I liked.

I moved my black drop leaf table out of my dining room and put it in my kitchen for a island.  I love islands and this is the closest thing to one right now. I moved my round table out to give it more space in there.

Bo says "Happy Monday"!!

Happy Late New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  We sure did!!  I have been a bad blogger, but I promise to be better!  It has been so fun redoing things around the house since I took down all of my Christmas decorations.  You know the saying "shop the house"  Well I definitely done that!  I finally got around to redoing my new dining table and I LOVE IT!  I painted the bottom white and I am probably going to glaze or something to it later on, but for right now I like it white.  I stripped the old stain off the top and used Danish Oil in Dark Walnut and I really like the color alot.  I paid $50 for this table, what a bargain!  I used my chairs that I had in there before and recovered the seats in linen.  I really like my bench there too!  I think it looks like a farmhouse table now.  I would like another bench later on but this one will do for now.

This is what it looked like before

and now the after

I moved my black table that was under my mirror in my dining to the kitchen (will show you later).  I moved this white little table in.  For this table I painted it white and distressed it a ton!  I love that basket underneath that I got while thrifting and I put my chenille throw in it.  My  little cutie owl on top was brown and I painted him white.

This chair came with my dining room table and I was really sad that there was only one because I love it.  I painted her a pretty turquoise and she is beautiful now!  I gave her a new seat too.  Here she is at her new home.

I will be back to show you some fun things I have  done over the past few weeks. 

I am linking to a few parties today
