teal bench makeover

Gorgeous teal bench makeover!  See how easy it is to refinish old furniture to make it new again.| lollyjane.com

Earlier this month we shared the perfect teal color, Teal Zeal by Glidden paint.  It's part of their new simplified color palette and we just adore it.  Check out our many color inspiration ideas, so much eye candy for the home!  This bench has been in our marriage as long as our oldest daughter has been.  My in-laws gave me a gift card to Pier 1 back in the day, nearly 13 years ago, and I was so excited to have a real wood piece of furniture in the house.  It was $250 and the gc was for $200.  I was so thrilled with the black beauty and red distressed undertones.  Fast forward, I don't wear black.  Ever.  I don't decorate with cool … continue reading

DIY | glitter succulent planters

DIY glitter succulents | Easy Christmas decor idea, painted pots with glitter tops.

We are loving all the fall decor goin' on but the frugal gals we are, we like to mix n' match fall/Christmas.  We originally shared these adorable glitter succulent planters at Yellow Bliss Road for her fun holiday series.  It's an easy project to whip up since you just need $0.69 pots, a little glitter & paint.  If you're a longtime reader, you know our major obsession with with succulents. And mason jars.  Which is why we decided to switch things up and paint some pots instead of jars.    And we added glitter...because a crafter can never overuse the sparkly stuff, are we right!? Supplies: 3 mini terra cotta pots patio paint (we … continue reading

S’more roll recipe

S'Mores Roll Dessert |rhondasteed.com

Please welcome sweet Rhonda from Just Rhonda back! We can hardly wait to share this yummy recipe with you... and make it this weekend! Today I’m sharing a chocolate roll of goodness... a S’More Roll. It starts out with a sponge cake jelly roll and ends with some sprinkled graham cracker crumbs, chocolate ganache and jars of marshmallow. Yum. First you make a runny sponge cake. As it cooks you get a dishtowel ready with cocoa on it (it keeps it from sticking to the towel.) Then when the cake comes out you flip it onto the dishtowel.    Peel off the parchment.  And roll it up!  Wrap it with saran wrap and stick it in the … continue reading

The best color teal ever!

Love this color "Teal Zeal" by Glidden. Gorg!

We love paint. Like, love it to the point where we inevitably end up in the paint department at Walmart or Home Depot on any given trip just looking at swatches with a little bubble emoji above our heads, thinking about what we can paint or REpaint next. True story.  Every time I walk past the foyer in my entryway I think of this cute black bench that was gifted to me as a wedding gift almost 13 years ago. As you can see, it's black and has a nice retail store lacquer finish on it. With 4 kids, it has actually held up well.... but, it's black. I don't think I even own a black piece of clothing, to be honest because black is just not me. So, I decided to take on my next … continue reading

Sullivan Mayflower company’s big heart

Be Someone who makes someone else look forward to tomorrow | free print

We've been surrounded by some tragic losses these past few months here in Arizona, our childhood friend Nicole's sweet 7-year old daughter, London, and 2 local law enforcement officers. Amid the grief we have seen our communities wrap their arms around those who are left to mourn and take care of them, both emotionally and financially... and with our best friend, Nicole, even physically. London's short life was taken while the family was preparing for an out-of-state move, days before they were set to leave. Consequently, the move was postponed until her tender services were completed.  This is where Sullivan Mayflower Moving Company stepped in.  Their kind … continue reading
