Table It Link Party 12


Hiya! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. 

We have been busy around here still! I have been ignoring pisser (neighborhood squirrel) so I am afraid to go out on my front porch to see how mad he is. But if he did get mad about the feeder not being filled, I'm sure he let me know.

I have been finishing up my two DIY projects for the living room. I am on the last bamboo/rattan blind....one last stencil color to apply and I will be able to hang it up. You can view that post here...

Wingback Chair Makeover


What's a girl to do when she is budget conscious and wants 2 wingback chairs to match her love of purple

and doesn't want (or can't) spend hundreds of dollars on one chair?
She scours thrift stores...

It took me quite a while to find two matching chairs, that had such an incredible price, I literally was waiting 20 minutes outside the store for them to open up, so no one got these chairs before me!
(One of my favorite stores posts pictures of new stuff on FB; so I saw these and hauled butt to the store)

Hi...

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We sure are getting some terrific weather here in my area around Chicago...It has been sunny every day for almost 2 weeks now and in the low 80's...

I'm loving it!
Have you been getting the same? I hope so....

Rattan Blind DIY Update


Rattan Blind DIY Update.....

Yeah; that might be kind of misleading. What it should read is 

Rattan Blind Update............Maybe.

You see, this all started because I have sent away for so many blind samples (over 30) and shopped for a blind (15 stores in town) to replace the one in the LR that broke...and the closest I have come still doesn't match.
And due to a stupid Pfffhtt return policy....
well I ended up with a huge 57" wide blind that doesn't fit anywhere else in my house.

So I decided to try some paint and my hand at stenciling...
