A Little More Fall

I'm adding Fall around the house as I get time, and there isn't enough time to go around it seems.

I purchased the fabric pumpkin at TJ Maxx a couple of weeks ago.

"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under Heaven"
I created this picture in Microsoft Publisher.

A colorful Fall vignette.

Plastic pumpkins, I painted the two white ones.

I used the mesh and ribbon left over from my wreath, shown here.

Just 1 lonely pumpkin!

I did manager to get some paint time in one day this week.  Here is a sneak peek of the China Cabinet re-do. 

Almost time for the FUN part:  Distressing & glazing.

Follow me on Pinterest to see where I get some of my inspiration!

TV Armoire Inspiration

So, I got this great buy on a TV Armoire over at Goodwill.  It is now home and I'm looking for some inspiration.
Will it house our TV in the  Living Room?
Maybe our TV in the Bedroom?
What about a linen closet?

Here is what it looked like in the store (with my phone camera)
 I turned to my Pinterest board for some ideas and here is what I came up with.
I love the "Shabby Chicness" of this piece.

 I love everything about this one!

I really like the use of tin tiles for the background.
Which one do you like?
To see these and other Armoire inspirational pieces, visit my "To Make Our House a Home" board on Pinterest.
I didn't get the chance to work on the China Cabinet this weekend.  It is getting close to completion, but I couldn't find time in between this...

High School Football
and this....
Helping with the PeeWee Cheerleaders
And this...
PeeWee Football.  My son is the center (the player with his hand on the ball). 
Every weekend is a Football Weekend in our house and I love every minute of it!  Although I would love to have some time to spend in the garage with a paint brush in my hand.
Have a great day!

Current Project and My INCREDIBLE Goodwill Find

One good find after another.  I am very lucky to have such a great venue for finding great deals.

My current project wasn't an AWESOME deal, but I like this piece of furniture and feel I got a good buy.

It has been primed and painted and a few extra touches are being added.  Pictures coming soon of it all finished.

NOW, on to my incredible buy
(sorry for the poor quality photo, this was taken with my phone)

This massive TV armoire will be picked up on Saturday.  This has to be my best buy yet.

How much do you think I paid?




I paid $12.50

It was marked $25 but when I got to the register to pay, I was told all furniture was 1/2 off.  I am super excited and can not wait to get this home and figure out a plan.

Stay tuned for updates on both!

A Little Touch of Fall

After taking some off to adjust my time management skills due to a new part time job, I am back and ready to get the projects started!

I am anxious to spread a little “Fallness” around the house. I found some inspiration from Liz over at Savvy Seasons by Liz. She has made some awesome mesh wreathes.

Here is my attempt

I love the use of these colors for fall.  It seems this year I am longing to use things that are a little more Non-traditional.  Who know what I will come up with.  Stay tune to find out!

Check out my Facebook page to see what I found at Goodwill yesterday!! You won't believe what I paid for it.  While your there, Like my page!
