My favorite place to unplug and unwind

Hello, friends! Today I'm sharing a few pics from our visit to my folks' lake house over spring break. It's truly a mix of styles, but it's very comfortable and relaxed.


Welcome to the lake. It's the favorite warm weather hangout for my family.

Hello, friends! How are ya? I've been busy with lots of projects lately, including giving a makeover to a chest of drawers we've had for a few years. This piece was previously painted white and needed some refreshing after being used in my daughter's room for several years. Things didn't go exactly as I had planned for this project, but after a bit of frustration and then some creative thinking, it turned out pretty much how I had envisioned it.


I was going for an old world look...something that looked like it had been painted by an artisan years ago.

Benjamin Moore Gray Wisp ~ Favorite Paint Color

Hello, friends! I've got another favorite color to share with you. Today's favorite is Benjamin Moore Gray Wisp. It's one of those colors that looks gray sometimes, blue sometimes, and green sometimes. The lighting and items against it really make a difference in how it appears.

Hello, friends! Can you believe it's already March? I'm so glad spring is almost here for good.

I've been busy with several small projects lately and wanted to reveal one of my favorite ones today. And I have to say that I feel like a kid with a new toy after finishing this project.


Our old kitchen faucet had been leaky for a while, and it also had a lower profile than we liked. It was difficult to get large pots or pitchers underneath. We wanted and needed to change out the old one and had been looking at the gooseneck or high arc type with the pull down sprayer. Thanks to National Builder Supply and Moen, we were able to upgrade to a gorgeous new faucet that was exactly what we had been wanting.

Union Jack Dresser with Handmade Rope Drawer Pulls

Hello, friends! I hope you're getting a taste of Spring-like weather in your neck of the woods. It's been a little warmer here and we're so glad.

I've been finishing some projects and today I'm revealing what might be my favorite painted piece of furniture to date. Although I nearly sent it to the burn pile before I finished it.



Meet Queen "B", named such because of her English style and her uncooperative attitude. If you've ever painted a Union Jack flag on a piece of furniture that wasn't flat, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

Benjamin Moore Shaker Beige ~ Favorite Paint Color

Hello, friends! It's been a few weeks since I posted a favorite color, but today I'm sharing our all-time most popular neutral at the paint shop, Benjamin Moore Shaker Beige HC-45.



It's a mid-tone neutral that goes with just about any color. It's not too gray, not too yellow, not too pink, but more like coffee with cream. At least that's what my coffee looks like each morning, but I probably have as much cream as coffee in my cup!
