Wow Us Wednesdays #165

Well, this week sure started off with a bang! If you follow me on instagram and facebook then you saw what happened to me yesterday. Thanks so much for your healing wishes. I was just minding my own business and emptying the dishwasher and I had a coffee mug in one hand and a glass in the other and then I started to drop one of them, I don't even know which it happened so quickly, and my reflexes set in and said catch them and don't let them fall. WRONG, the two clashed together along with my hand and the glass won and I lost. As soon as it happened I knew it wasn't good. Blood was already flowing and I grabbed a paper towel and a clean dishcloth and applied pressure. Hunted for my phone and called Mr. Savvy. Come take me to get stitches! Bam! he is on his way and within the hour I had five stitches. The bad thing is they have to stay in a minimum of ten days because the cut is below my thumb on my left hand in a muscle that is used quite a bit. Bummer! Thank goodness I'm right handed and I was thrilled to hear I can get my hand wet as long as it is in clean water .Sure can't go with dirty hair for that long or even a day. Bad thing is the more I type the more it hurts so no features this week. I normally get the post done on Mondays. Sorry. Glad I had this morning's post already done along with a few others. If it feels better soon I may share some features later this week. Besides me and my boo boo, I had already taken Miss Bailey back to the vet yesterday morning for an abscess on her back from her vaccines three weeks ago. She had a hole oozing blood all weekend. Geesh! She is on antibiotics for that. Poor baby was fine until her check up three weeks ago. Then we found out she had a broken molar that needed to be pulled. So she had surgery last week and she has stitches, too and can only have food in the form of pudding for two weeks. So I have been mixing her food with water and making mush and then mixing baby food in. When it rains it pours...

So with all the drama aside let's get this party started. I can't wait to see what you share this week!

What's One More Layer?


When I shared the guest room did you notice the little table? Actually I didn't share this photo, but one that showed just the corner of it. Welcome to my latest paint project. Well, no that is wrong. I painted something else to that hasn't been shared yet.

I dug through my old posts and found this photo to show you how this table looked before I ever got a hold of it with a paint brush. It was yellow and distressed when I bought it.

The first time I painted it I used Annie Sloan chalk paint in Aubusson.

Second time I painted it I added a layer of black with Miss Mustard Seed Milk paint in Typewriter.

I wasn't using the table, yes it had retired to the hoarding room, but I decided to use it in the guest room. I grabbed my sample jar of Versailles. It is a soft green.

I painted a couple of coats and then sanded some places to show the other layers.

A coat of clear wax all over and some buffing and she's done.





This will be a good place to set the guests' towels out and maybe some snacks and water.


The more layers of paint the older it looks. You just never know when it might be painted again.

What's one more layer?
Have you painted a piece more than once? I know I'm not alone.

I can't wait to see what you have to share at Wow tonight.
Did y'all like the 7 o'clock start time or do you prefer 8?

See you there!

Farmhouse Style Guest Room Spring 2014

Did y'all have a good weekend? We sure did and got a lot of yard work completed. Feels good to have some of our list done.

 A few weeks ago I shared some peeks of pillows in this guest room. With a couple changes made since I shared those here is how the farmhouse style guest room looks now.

Brighter colors and lighter fabrics for the warmer seasons. 

This is one of the peeks I shared and in the next photo you can see the change I made. I used the white linen pillow in this photo in the green guest room that I shared last week.

I ended up using my very bold floral pillows instead and I love how all the fabrics work together.

Last year I used the floral pillows in the sun room.

The madras plaid Euro shams started the whole domino effect in here. I found them advertised in the House Beautiful magazine with the link to where to purchase them from. Madras just says summer... or spring.



The blue ticking duvet and shams are from Ikea and only $39 for the whole set. Move over Pottery Barn.







I found this vintage grain sack pillow on etsy.



Remember the grain sack basket liner I had put over a foot stool in the sun room? Well, now I placed it in this wire basket.



I found this fabulous berries crate on etsy. It was supposed to come with 12 berry cartons in it, but it came without them. I contacted the seller and got a small refund.

I'm using the crate to corral things together on top of this trunk in place of the basket.

This is how it looks for now.
