Small Space transformation... The Landing

Hello, and happy Monday to you.
I hope my last posts on Fall Table Settings have been instrumental in helping you create a table that reflects your personal style.
This week I will be making the most of an unused space by transforming it from barren to booyah! Read on.... 
This is the landing and boy did it need something. As you can see the space is very tiny, but I wanted it to be more than just a walk way to get upstairs. Hmmmmm!
At first, I was unsure as to how I would use the space, so I decided to use it as....


A Sitting Area.

No need to go shopping, I just pulled together some items from around the house that weren't being used. The artwork was found at a thrift store, and believe it or not the figures are made of plaster.


The leopard bench, pillows and throw were all gifts.

The basket serves as storage for books and stationary and the candlesticks were bought at a yard sale several years ago. The animal print ornaments were purchased at Dillard's. (after Christmas sale)
So, what do you think? I LOVE IT!!!!!!!  A place to read, write, and daydream. Who knew?
Enjoy the pics!

    It's amazing how a few simple additions can turn a space you wouldn't look twice at into an area you can't pass without wanting to hang out for a minute or two!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.

My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Chat soon...
