Fall Porch made cozy

September 27, 2018

It all started with re painting the house.

(SW mindful gray)

The beige old furniture against the new crisp gray suddenly looked very dingy and sad.  I pulled it off the deck and shoved it in the bushes to get it out of the way and the porch has sat naked.  Two months worth of naked.

It was time.

Let’s cozy up this little porch and create an inviting welcome.


It was the perfect opportunity to add some seasonal color.

And pumpkins!  Always pumpkins.

Come see the sources and full before and afters

Bold Desk Makeover

September 20, 2018

 Sale prep is in full swing over here and we’re having a little fun with color on this one.

Loved the shape, the legs, the casters, the hardware.

She was a bit beat up and ragged.

We went for something very out of the norm for us and went bold with color!

And we were pretty sure we’d made a mistake.  This was looking a little TOO bold!

But persevere we did and we’re kinda liking this out of the norm piece!

A lot.

The hardware was aged perfection so we left it alone.

The gold accessories with pops of greenery provide the perfect compliment to the piece.


Depending how you accessorize this piece, it can go from vintage feel to fun and modern feeling.

Yes.  I’m pretty sure we like it!

Paint is  Rust-Oleum milk paint in Venetian Yellow.

Fall Tablescape

September 17, 2018


It’s sweatshirts in the morning and t-shirts in the afternoon.

 It’s Fall y’all!

Definitely a favorite.

We recently had a deck added onto our home this summer.  Now that the weather is cooling off it’s time to start enjoying the space!

So I ventured out and played a little….

I snagged quite a few glass bottles from the thrift store recently.  Someone had tired of their collection and I swooped in.

I added in a few mis matched brass candlesticks, also from the thrift store and added staggered candles to both the candlesticks and jars.

This is a second story deck, so railing was required.  When we were choosing railing we wanted to keep it from obstructing the view as much as possible.  We hired Boise handyman Matt’s Handyman  

and he came up with a great solution and  brought it all together.  He has my full recommendation!

Berries give it the seasonal feel.


And Chinet to the rescue for disposable dishes with some class.

Because half the joy of eating outdoors is keeping the mess outdoors!  Life simplified.

Here’s to cool nights on the deck and meals enjoyed with family.


Deck construction: Matt’s handyman service

Table and chairs: World Market

Disposable Dinnerware: Chinet
