New Dining Room Chairs

As I've mentioned here on the blog, Mark and I have been going some some auctions this summer.  It's such a fun experience and exciting too when you are in a bidding war over a piece of furniture!  I always set a limit in my head and really try not to go over it.

Grace Ceramic Cutting Board - $15

I don't often share Mary & Martha items, but I thought this special sale for TODAY ONLY was one you would like to see!  Why, because I love it and the price is right - $15!   I've already ordered some for gifts - and of course, one for myself too!  Wouldn't this be a great Thanksgiving hostess gift?  

The cutting board is small - 12 3/4 x  8", but would be great on your stovetop, to hang on the wall, for cheese & crackers, etc. 

The sale is today only and the quantities are limited!  Here's the link where you can order!

I'm not sure why the link above isn't clickable, but just copy and paste it in your browser and it will take you directly to the item.  

The item will be shipped directly to you from Mary & Martha and their shipping time is amazing!

I'll be back later today to show you my new dining chairs!  I know - two posts in one day, but I really wanted you to have a chance to get one of these cutting boards!

Transforming a Retro TV Stand into a Bar Cart

This is another one of those projects that I really wish I had taken a before photo. The TV stand was broken and laying in pieces on the ground.  And, the top shelf was missing!  I found it at a salvage place and when I asked about it, the owner asked how much would "He" need to pay "Me" to take it away!!  I ended up paying the owner $10 and he generously made a top shelf and put the whole thing back together for me.

DIY Farmhouse Tabletop

When I complete a project, I always have a sense of satisfaction.  Sometimes I'm happier with the outcome than others.  And, I've had my share of DIY disasters over the years - most of which you won't find here!  Today was one of those days that I was giddy with happiness when I put the final brush stroke of paint on this DIY farmhouse tabletop that Mark built and I finished.

Easy and Inexpensive Hardwood Floor

I'm here today to bring you the final post on Seth's bedroom.  This probably should have been the first post since it was one of the first things we did in the room - besides painting.  It's the wood floor treatment we gave to this small space.
