Skulls And Spiders Table

Skulls And Spiders Table

Happy Monday everyone!  Today on the blog is my Skulls And Spiders Table which was so fun to put together.  In previous years, I wanted happy and pumpkins.  This year I wanted dramatic and dark so off I went in search of skulls, skeletons, graves, and spiders.  Where did I find it all, you ask?  I was able to find almost everything at Big Lots (they are running a 20% off on all their fall stuff until 9/23).  I made pit stops at Home Goods, Walmart, Dollar General, and Hobby Lobby to complete...

Summer To Fall Table 2022

Summer To Fall Table 2022

Happy Monday everyone!  I’m starting to see fall decor out in the stores which is giving me all the fall feels!  Fall is my favorite time of the year.  I start spring and summer with a bang wanting to be outdoors working on my yard but then I start to crave fall weather abut this time.  I love transition pieces that can transition you from summer to fall without breaking the bank and what better way to do that is to create a Summer To Fall Table!  The table adds color, is already set for...

July 4th Tablescape 2022

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today on the blog is my July 4th Tablescape with these Stars and Stripes dishes from Walmart.com as my jumping off point.  These are so fun because the red, white, and blue is so rich in color and the best part is that they are melamine which makes for a lightweight dish and easy cleaning.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  Read more to find out where I purchased all my table decor, facts and trivia about the American flag.

Revive And Refresh Package

Revive And Refresh Package

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  We have been working so much on both the inside and outside of the house that I haven’t had time to put out my Revive and Refresh Package and the mood board I recently helped a friend with.  I’m currently watching Selling The Hamptons and loving it.  I really get into all of these design shows and always find inspiration from them.  I love scouring magazines, Pinterest, personal blogs, and HOUZZ just to name a few to get ideas.  I...

My 1920s Buffet Table Makeover

My 1920s Buffet Table Makeover

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’ve been planning on showing you My 1920’s Buffet Table Makeover for a while now.  Mr. TAL and I found this piece on Facebook Marketplace about a year ago for $150.  We were new to the marketplace but excited to try it out.  I have refinished 6 pieces so far along with a full kitchen cabinet makeover but all pieces were either something I already had or were given to me.  Based on what others were charging for the same thing and it being in fairly good shape I said...

How I Updated My $5 Accent Table

How I Updated My $5 Accent Table

Happy Monday everyone!!!  I’m so excited to show you how I updated a $5.00 accent table that I bought last year at an estate sale in Pittsburgh, PA.  One corner of my living room had a lonely lamp sitting all by itself for what seemed like….forever!  I kept saying we needed more seating in our living room and wanted a chair to go in the spot next to our entertainment center and lamp.  Mr. TAL and I found this Queen Anne chair on Facebook Marketplace for $150 and knew I had to give my little...

Spring Floral Table

Spring Floral Table

Happy Wednesday everyone!  This spring floral table is a perfect post for today.  The rain has stopped and the sun is out (thank goodness)! This table just makes you happy.  With so many shades of colors who wouldn’t find something they didn’t like.  This tablescape can be dressed up or down but I chose to keep it a bit more casual.  I also considered the types of foods I was serving and used different ramekins and sized plates.  Our meal of fingers foods, chips, dips, and desserts was a...

Easter Table 2022

Easter Table 2022

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.  This holiday snuck up on me so fast.  I had created this Easter Table a week ago and thinking I had another week to post, I left it sitting to work on.  Then all of a sudden Easter was here and we were on our way to the Grand Concourse for their Easter buffet in Pittsburgh.  It’s Sunday night and I figured why not post it any way.  If you like it, save it for next year for your 2023 Easter tablescape ideas!     If you live in the...

How Color Can Transform A Room

How Color Can Transform A Room

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Today I’m talking about how color can transform a room.  When we moved into our house, I had the dining room painted the same color as the baseboards which is an off white.  After a while, I couldn’t stand it but wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to go.  Did I want bold, bright?  Did I want sage green, pale yellow, or did I want shades of salmon?  Our dining room sat for almost a year a plain off white while I worked on other projects but I admit I would stand at...

Basement Bathroom Revive And Refresh

Happy Monday everyone!  I’m so excited to reveal my Basement Bathroom Revive And Refresh project on the blog today.  Mr. TAL and I have worked together over the last several months to update our basement making it a space that we can enjoy together.  This bathroom was a plain Jane, standard builder grade bathroom that needed to blend better with the rest of the basement.  I was a bit nervous picking such a dark color in a room this small but wanted to pick up the red in our area rug in the...
