DIY Drop Cloth Curtain

Picture this: You are relaxing outside in a comfy, padded chair, your favorite cold drink in hand.  Your hair dancing around your face in the warm summer breeze.  Gently, the beautiful, tall curtains flow in the wind.  The warm rope light casts an ethereal glow all around.  The sound of water trickles near by… Are [...]

You guys…I’m smitten!  I cannot express how flattered I am at all the love I have received on my Kitchen Table!  Since posting about the table I bought on Craigslist and totally revamped, by staining the top to match my espresso cabinets and painting the base with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Wax, I have [...]

Let’s Wallpaper It!

Entry stairwell with Compass and Gold wallpaper from Target on SprinkledNest

Wait…what…Wallpaper???  Yep…I know what you are thinking.  But wallpaper is making a comeback!  Now, we don’t need to go overboard with it and hang it in every room, bathroom, border everything 1980′s style.  But, a little bit, used sparingly and as a nice accent or focal point is a good thing.

Actually…nothing for privacy.  I have been wanting to plant [...]

Update a vintage lamp with Annie Sloan chalk paint and wax via Sprinkled Nest

A few weeks ago, I went to my friend Sharon’s house.  She rescued two antique lamps from her in-law’s attic!  Her dilemma:  what to do with them!  She loved the shape of the lamps, and the fact that they have been in her husband’s family for a looong time.  But, they are looking tired, dirty, [...]
