New Location and Styling for the Chippy Cabinet

 Did you know that in just ten minutes you can make a change in your home and create a fresh look? If you are a regular reader then you know that I know this all too well. Welcome to our monthly series, 10 Minute Decorating, where I along with three other fabulous bloggers share some quick ideas to get a new look in your home.

A few weeks ago I shared this chippy cabinet from Decor Steals styled in my sun room.

I wanted to place my fiddle leaf fig back in this spot so I found a new home for the cabinet.

Wow Us Wednesdays #214

It's party time again. Hope your week is going well. I know some of you are still experiencing winter, but I wish you could see all the blooming trees here. I drove to my favorite antique mall yesterday and it was such a pretty drive with the pear and cherry trees in full bloom. So hold on spring will be in your area soon.

Since our last party I shared:

Here are some features from last week.

Kammy's husband said he didn't know how to build a mantel. Well, I say he does and you must see what they started with. Check it out at Kammy's Korner.

My Mind Never Stops

Yesterday I shared the brass lamp base sporting its new look and how I had it placed on the buffet in the dining room. All I had was the marble lamp, a vegetable dish and the lamp base on there. Well, I wish I could turn my mind off sometimes. After looking at those three on the buffet it just looked sort of blah to me so after changing up what was on the dining room table I decided to use some of those things on the buffet instead of putting them away and this is what I ended up with.

Guest Bath Progress Update

It's hard to believe this bathroom isn't finished yet, but it's not. Almost though....almost.

The bath and shower kit was supposed to be in last Monday, but it still isn't in. Hopefully soon.

Transforming Old Brass

Several weeks ago I discovered a blogger, who along with her husband, is transforming a ranch house into a French beauty. I love every room that she decorates and she also has a shop full of great items like she displays in her home. This blogger is Cindy at Edith and Evelyn Vintage Interiors

Well, I had to check out her shop and I just happened to order something.

On My Dresser

A couple weeks ago I took y'all shopping with me on St. Simons Island and told y'all I bought something from a cute shop we found.

I specifically bought something you can see in this room. Well, actually a pair of them.

Wow Us Wednesdays #213

Happy St. Paddy's Day! Hope y'all are having a great week. We are temporarily enjoying summer like temps, but they will end soon and we will get back to normal.

This morning when I shared green I have had in my home I forgot all about one of my favorite projects.....my kitchen island cabinets. This was so much easier than painting with latex paint and they still look great.

It's All About the Green

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Since today is all about the green I thought I would share some green that I used to have in my home before lightening things up over the years. Since I have a lot of new readers you may not know that green was a favorite color of mine in home decor.

You may need your sunglasses on for this one. Guest Bedroom 2010.

Gallery Wall in the Breakfast Room

Have y'all ever been working on a pretty major project in your home and then all of a sudden you are changing things up in other parts of the house? I tend to do this a lot and this past week, since I really couldn't do much in the guest bathroom, I decided to change up the breakfast room wall......again.

This is the way the wall looked for awhile.

Segreto Style

Have you ever been star struck? Well, I was when I received an email the other day from someone whose work I have admired for a few years. I have been following Leslie Sinclair of Segreto Finishes ever since I found her first book and blog. I was thrilled that she found me and asked little ole me to review her second book "Segreto Style".

This is one huge coffee table book with 301 pages of beautiful homes that Leslie and her team of artisans have created stunning finishes in. This book is full of gorgeous rooms that you will want to look at over and over.

Brown No More

On Thursday a couple of young men showed up at my house to transform my ugly duckling brown tub into a beautiful white swan. Yes, I had been waiting for this to take place for YEARS.

When we built our house, almost twenty years ago, we were on a very tight budget. When choosing the tubs and toilets the place we shopped was cleaning out the showroom floor for the new models to come in and we chose to get this brown tub and the matching brown toilet because they were practically free.
