Curvy and Petite Simple Entry Table Makeover

A good cleaning, fresh paint and gorgeous hardware make all the difference in this simple entry table makeover. 

Recently, I was given a curvy little entry table that had quite the colorful paint job.  Sometimes a furniture makeover requires a lot of work and sometimes it just needs a little cleaning and a fresh coat of paint.   This was one of those times when a good scrubbing and a little make-under made all the difference in bringing a piece of furniture back to life.

A Vintage Inspired Classic Christmas Home Tour

A classic Christmas home tour featuring silver and green, pops of red, vintage decor and affordable ways to create a beautiful holiday home on a budget. 

It's officially Christmas time and I couldn't be more excited!  I'm not a fan of the shorter days and cold nights, but I sure do love decking our home out for the holidays.  This year, I decided to switch things up a bit and opted to leave out my popular entryway Christmas gallery wall in lieu of something a bit more simple.  I went with a green, white and silver color scheme that I carried throughout our home.  I accented with a few pops of red,  classic vintage decor and budget-friendly DIY projects.

A Simple and Classic Vintage Hot Chocolate Bar

What's better than a classic hot chocolate bar?  A VINTAGE hot chocolate bar complete with vintage Santa mugs, thermoses and peppermint sticks! 

I'm a total sucker for vintage Santa's.  Whether that be blow molds, figurines, ornaments or mugs!  I'm also a sucker for vintage plaid thermoses.  I hunt for them all year long and never pass up a good deal.  Lucky for me they pair together nicely to create the perfect simple and classic vintage hot chocolate bar.

Free Window Wall Decor For The Mudroom

Are you in need of large scale wall art, but don't want to spend a lot of money?  Hanging free vintage windows was the perfect solution for our mudroom and just might be the right solution for you! 

I've been stumped on how to decorate the long wall in our mudroom ever since construction ended a few years ago.   Currently, the addition is temporarily divided between our mudroom and my office (until we knock down walls to expand our kitchen).  It's a long narrow space that can be tricky to decorate, especially since it's split between two rooms.

A few months ago, I was lucky enough to find a set of 5 vintage theatre chairs that perfectly filled the awkward floor space, but I was still stumped on what to do on the wall.   I didn't want to spend a lot of money or hang anything dark and heavy.  That's when I realized I had a bunch of old windows that would make for perfect wall decor.
