What I’m Loving Now | Breakfast Nook

L.O.V.E

 

I discovered this adorable breakfast nook at a color consult with a new customer… obsessed! She wasn’t sure about what color was on the wall, but she knew it was by Benjamin Moore.  My guess is Stonington Gray. Her bathroom was Moonshine (my new favorite color!!!) We had a lot of fun going through each room finding a way to pull it all together. Can’t wait to post pictures when it’s done!

Table Runners | Hearth & Hand

Hearth & Hand is here and I just couldn’t be more excited! Created exclusively for Target with Magnolia a home & lifestyle brand by Chip & Joanna Gaines, there is so much to love! From whimsical dinnerware, pillows, and the newest design trend, artificial flowers to decorative storage, lighting, and rugs. Most of the accent pieces are under $25. See my favorites below!

Someday I’ll actually refinish my dining room table and master bedroom dresser. Scratches, water stains and a nasty burn from a curling iron have added to the abuse this furniture has taken. I tried my hand at all of the online DIY methods. Some of them were pretty crazy like mayonnaise or toothpaste for the water stains. We even used steel wool and fancy store-bought products, but even Bob Vila couldn’t penetrate the surface. I decided that until the sander comes out, the most effective way to fix the table is to hide it!

I’m so in love with simple patterns and price of these embroidered runners! They totally do the trick!  $17.99 each!

Recommendations for Small Projects that will add HUGE Value;

Tips for Choosing the Right Paint Colors

Paint is a fun way to update a room and freshen up your interior, but the right color can create a mood, add height or bring warmth to your space. Benjamin Moore 2018 color of the year… Caliente Red (color is back and I’m putting in on every front door that I can get my hands on!!)

 Answers to Popular Questions, like; Are we Overspending or Upgrading?

Did you know that nine out of ten buyers would prefer a new kitchen to a new roof? I’m not suggesting that you renovate your kitchen if the roof is leaking. I’ve just never heard the words “honey, this is the one… it has a new roof”.

“Welcome to our Home” Chalkboard

Have to share because, seriously… this is so adorable and won the hearts of so many buyers at my open house. Creating a welcoming living space like this doesn’t have to be expensive, just some chalk paint and chalk. Choose a wall that’s not a focal point; but rather a hidden gem like under a staircase or, in this case, a wall in a room that can’t be seen from it’s entrance. While the idea of a charming, hand-drawn chalkboard sounds nice, let’s be honest, the kids are going to scribble all over your beautifully written words before you get your first offer! Now who’s ready to buy this home?!
