New Custom Sofa Table!
- Published on Monday, 09 April 2012
I ordered this custom 86 inch long sofa table made from barn wood from an Etsy shop owner, Jacqueline. She was amazing to work with – awesome communication. She had it made and shipped within 5 days and then it arrived just a couple of days later from Minnesota!
Here it is, though please ignore the crazyness of the room. ...

Since we sold our master bed last month, I’ve been on the hunt for a new one. We’d love to have an upholstered headboard (or bed) with tufting and nailhead. But, something large with some drama, and preferably height. I haven’t spotted just the right thing. But here are some interesting headboards I’ve seen lately.
From a local sh...

Help me figure out what to get for the kitchen lighting. Here are the choices.
1) Mercury Glass. Most all of these are from Arcadian Lighting, but this one is from Layla Grace. It’s large at 12 inches across. Has a barn look, but is glass.
2) Shiny chrome and large at 13 inches across. Our existing fixtures are 8 inches...

Where Have I Been?
- Published on Sunday, 01 April 2012
I’ve taken a week or two off of blogging for the first time ever. Why? Well, we moved into our new house that we just purchased on Austin and I’ve been busy! Busy unpacking, busy selling things I can’t use on Craigslist, busy with installments of different kinds such as the water softener, and so on!
Tour of the New House
- Published on Tuesday, 20 March 2012
We are now closed on the new house in Austin, after relocating from Phoenix! Yay. Bear with me as these are just taken with my phone. I snapped them just quickly for family. I doubt I’ll take any new ones with proper lighting and such before move-in day.
Despite the quality, I wanted to show you all because I hate when a...
Planning for the New House

We close today! Here is a sneak peek of some of the items we’ve been gathering for the new family room/ kitchen/ breakfast room areas.
We’ve eliminated some of the darker colors and tried to replace them with lighter colors for an overall lighter feel. These photos were taken in our rental.
Of course, the real test is always seeing...
Thelma And Louize – Antique Store
- Published on Friday, 16 March 2012
I discovered her shop when I bought a dresser from her off of Craigslist. As soon as I went into her home, I knew she must have more elsewhere – this was clearly a passion. Her home was filled with eye candy. I had a hard time focusing on what I went for… So, of course, I had to find out more about the shop she m...
Two More Craigslist Finds
- Published on Thursday, 15 March 2012
We sold our entertainment center and have our TV stand up for sale. Instead, we are switching to dressers. One day, in the family room, we’ll have built-ins and the dresser will retire to another room. But, for now, here is what we found.
Both are french provincial style.
The first is a Thomasville piece that is repainted with...
