The Random Tea Room

One day I hope to stroll into "The Random Tea Room" and have my coffee or tea served to me in a vintage baby carriage... how exciting!

It's all about the details

Details seem to be the most overlooked design of a home and this happens to be the most important part! Make your home your own by adding one of a kind touches... maybe you have a old family book, or notes written to grandma from grandpa while he was in the war.. whatever it is, its unique and your own. You will soon find these small details will become the heart of your home and the conversations will begin!

One Man's Trash Becomes My Treasure's

While on one of my many picks something in the back corner behind many piles of junk caught my eye.... this beautiful vintage door with all of its original hardware and organic (very old) paint job. I had to have it, but what to do with such an old thing? I decided on making a dressing station where you can put your clothes out for the next morning and have a nice place to sit and admire your newly repurposed piece of history!

You can also peek in the mirror and see the vintage ladder now repurposed as a towel hanger!

Drab Door to Fab Door

 This is a fun way to spice up your kitchen, laundry room, or play room, you can do this on just about any style door and it also looks great on kitchen cabinet's. Chalkboard paint runs about $10 and will go along way. The painting process is very simple, just like any other paint job you want to buy some painters tape and tape off around the area you want to paint and apply several coats and now you can leave your husband or kids a sweet little note or maybe a chore :).  
This is a great way to address any glass pantry or hall closet to give it that extra wow factor, remember it is all in the details! Chicken wire is sold in roles at hardware stores like Home Depot, I like to use YARDGARD 1 IN. X 2FT. X 50FT. 20-GAUGE GALVANIZED POULTRY NETTING, this will cost about $22.00. Apply to the inside of the door with small nails to hold the netting or a staple gun, and there you have it, a great conversation piece!
