The Master Bedroom

Hi there friends...
Can you believe I gave you guys a little peek at some of the changes being made in our master bedroom way back in March and I'm just finally getting around to show you the room now!!
That's what happens when you have to many projects going on at once!
~~~
Let's have a look...
I replaced our old bed with a new linen 
upholstered headboard that I ordered from 
Home Decorators I LOVE the soft look it gave the room.
The next photo is a reminder of what our old bed looked like. 
I still love the look of this bed but I was ready for a little change. 


See much softer...
The bench I made over way back when...was placed at the foot of the bed.
 
I added white ironstone plates above the pictures. The white coverlet I had for years...the buffalo check duvet and shams I ordered from Ikea when I ordered the blue ticking set for my son's room... and the burlap bedskirt came from Ballards.
That pretty pillow was made for me by Linda...she's Kristen from the blog Sophia's mom.
 Linda made the pillows in my family room here too...she does beautiful work!
 She also made me a pretty topper for my skirted bedside table.


 I added the other glass lamp to my dresser...I love the way the two look on there.
 A shot with the lights off...

 The antique basket I found at the Country Living Fair was added to the top of my husbands highboy along with the other pillow Linda made for me.
Look at that pretty detail...

and our wedding photo from 17 years ago:-)
 So happy with the changes that were made in here!
Thanks so much for visiting!!

DIY demijohn lamp...

 Hi there friends...
Hope you all had a great weekend!
~~~
My collection of 
demijohns has grown rapidly and I just picked up two more for a steal! This was another $10 find that I found at a flea market last week and decided to turn it into a lamp.
Yes that's a new sofa table it's sitting on but your only getting a peek today...that's a whole other post ;-)
I simply bought one of those lamps kits at Home Depot and had the hubby put it together for me.
 The cord hanging behind the lamp drove him CRAZY!! So he went out and bought a drill bit that goes through glass and sent the cord up the inside of the bottle. 
Gotta love him! 
I love it so much better this way too and for a change I didn't have to ask him to do it lol!
I had the burlap shade on hand and just added the striped trim to it...I think I still might order a new burlap shade from PB. 
 Light on...  
One last look from the other side.

 ~~~
  Here's a little peek at what I just worked on for our youngest's room. She was ready for some changes in her room so stay tuned! 
She thinks she's a decorating DIVA now lol!!
Have a great week!!

A new rug for the kitchen

Hi there friends...
I know I've only been posting once a week but summer calls and I'm enjoying time with my family:-)


~~~
I wanted to show you guys the new jute runner I bought for my kitchen after the wood floors were installed. 
I love using a long runner in front of my sink and dishwasher...it keeps the floor clean and it prevents those dreaded water spots!



I even used one when we had the tile floor...here's a shot of the old one...

This time I ordered one with a black trim...I like the way it ties in with the black island.

The black hides spots too :-)

At 8ft. long it covers the whole area. 
It also has a rubber backing which I thought would be great for keeping it in place...but that wasn't the case! 
 So when I was contacted by the nice people at Rug Pad USA asking if I would like to try out one of there rug pads I said sure!

I chose the Superior Lock rug pad for hardwood floors...it has both a felt side and rubber side.
Let me tell you friends after adding this rug pad my rug does not move at all...love that!!
I also love that their pads are eco-friendly and made in the USA!
 They ship immediately so it arrives quickly too.

I loved this pad so much I just ordered another one just like it for the 8x10 area rug in my family room.
 If you're in the market for a rug pad I highly recommend checking out Rug Pad USA

Thanks so much for stopping by have a super week!

*Thank you Rug Pad USA for sponsoring this post...opinions are completely my own*

Our New Water Feature

 Hi there friends...
Today I'd like to show you the water feature we had added to our pool deck. 
We had this added the end of last summer I just never got around to showing you guys.
~~~
My husband loves waterfalls and fountains so we had the mason who built our stone walls and front pillars build this for us.
It was the perfect thing to fill in this empty corner. We love sitting around the pool and hearing the sound of the flowing water...it's so peaceful! 
 
 I added three large Portulaca plants to the ledge on the top. 
They thrive in the full sun.
 Our crane stands watch in between the fountain grass.
Love this ornamental grass! 
I planted three of them around here.










  We're so happy we added this water feature to our pool deck. 
~~~
Do you like water features or fountains mixed in with your landscaping?
Have a great week!
