Island Oasis Foyer Continued

Hello beautiful people! I hope you had a super fantastic weekend. I sure did! I had "Georgia on my mind" but I will talk about that in a later post. Today I am back with the follow up to my Island Oasis Foyer reveal. To read/see part one of the transformation click here.

After
 The foyer has gone through several changes since March, but I still have a few more projects before the foyer will be completely finished. I need to reupholster the chair, repaint the mirror, and purchase a few accessories. However, with that being said I am still pleased with the outcome thus far.


Before
When we first bought the house this is how our foyer looked.(sigh)  My budget was super slim so I had to come up with creative solutions to make this space sizzle.


 first time around/before
This hand painted rug was a carper remnant from a previous project. You can read more about it here.


Before
Even though the budget was tight I created a lotta bang for the buck!


After 
June of last year the foyer rug was revamped by my beautiful daughter. You can read about it here. Are those colors amazing or what? You like?

After
I love the new color(island oasis by Behr) it really brightens up the space. Staycation here I come!

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...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
