Old Rake

I was at a friend's house and we were wandering around her yard when I spied some old rakes!!! So naturally, I asked her if I could have one to hang my keys (I'm too cheap to buy one).

This is the rake.
I hung the rake in the kitchen to put our keys on in hopes that they don't get misplaced anymore. I have seen rakes used for several different purposes, but for now this is what I'm doing with mine.

What can you use a rake for?

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!

Chevron Print On Walls

Jenny recently decided to tackle her tiny hallway with a big print. As we all know Chevron
print is huge right now, from purses, to bedding, to blogs...its big. We love small spaces that have a huge impact. I was at work, so sadly I did not get to participate in this painting adventure!

Here is how Jenny Painted the Chevron print on her walls:

We love the chevron print and I decided to give it a try. I do recommend the print on a wall, but it was highly difficult to do a little hallway with lots of tight spots to tape. Taping and measuring was by far the most time consuming.
This is a picture of the hallway before....

Products used...
I made a template out of cardboard. I wanted a 6 inch stripe, and a 3 inch stripe(If I could do it over I would have bought the 3 inch wide tape), and measuring tape.
Let the taping begin...
and paint finally!
The end result is perfect.

We will post some more pics of this adorable hallway!  This is definitely a must if you want to make a statement in any small area!

Love Always,

The Naked Lampshade and the Goodwill Lamp Marry...Perfect Harmony

So I know it's been a while since our last blog post, but we have been busy-bodies!

I found this vintage "naked" lampshade at an antique store in Nashville for $15. On a separate shopping trip to 8th avenue south, we stepped into a chic store, of course everything was out of my price point. I did notice a naked lampshade with old pictures attached by tiny clothes pins. *LIGHTBULB* I knew exactly what I was going to do with my recently purchased lampshade.

The base of the lampshade I purchased at the Goodwill for $6, I spray painted the base a pewter color that matched the lampshade better.

The before: I loved the base of this lamp. the texture and size attracted me for some reason.

Old family photographs are attached to naked lampshade with mini clothes pins (can find at Hobby Lobby).

This lamp is definitely at conversation piece. 

P.S. How fantastic was the royal wedding? We had a sleepover and woke up at 4 a.m. to watch it. We loved every second of it!
