October Month in Review

Happy November 1st! Was it just me, or did October fly by?

I’m doing something new today. I’m wrapping up October… in one post. Welcome to our first Month in Review.

I kicked off October by Decorating the front porch with corn stalks:

Then I revealed my Painted Secretary:

The Secretary Reveal launched us into a ton of Entryway Updates:

With that, I showed you several new tutorials. Like the DIY Skeleton Key Art:

And the DIY Stick & Twig Star:

After the star I showed you my Upholstered Thrift Store Chair:

And then moved into the kitchen with my White Kitchen Tray:

Then it was onto more fall decorating- Happy Fall: Stick Style:

With that, I started a new series and showed you my Fall Welcome Banner:

Next, it was all about the office with my Office Desk Organizer Makeover: (say that three times fast!)

And then off to the Free Mudroom Bench:

Followed by the Living Room Curtains:

After that I told you all about our Breakfast Nook Plans:

After sharing my plans & inspiration, it was back to the mudroom with our updated Burlap Frame:

And finally, I wrapped up the month revealing my Painted Sewing Machine Table:

Whew! What a month! That was a lot! I feel so accomplished. 😉

What was your favorite project? Do tell!

Tomorrow I’ll be back with more!

Big Smiles!

Kitchen Tray

I’m a big believer in trays. I like how they instantly “group” something, or how they make an item look special. Anytime I find a tray, or something that even resembles one, I snatch it up and find a home for it. There’s always a place, trust me.

My latest find at the thrift store was this little beauty:

When I brought it home it didn’t looks so good. It was a really hideous red… Not that I have anything against red, but this had an orange-y tint to it. Blah.

I was in such a rush to get rid of the color, that I painted it before I took a “before” picture. Doh! Call me smart.

It’s playing a pretty big role by holding the olive oil, salt and pepper, plus a few pretties.

Our kitchen is still a room that needs a little personality, but projects like these sure help!

Ah, the simple pleasures…

Big Smiles!
