It’s a Chippy Old White Armoire…and It’s Freaking Fabulous.

My neighborhood has a Facebook page and this little beauty popped up with a “For Sale” listing on the post. I had to have it. Another neighbor clearly thought the same thing and after a little persuasion, I got my hands on it. (I couldn’t give this one up.) I wasn’t crazy about the color, […]

A Bridal Luncheon for a Southern Belle

A Bridal Luncheon for a Southern Belle

I was lucky enough to be asked by the North Mecklenburg Women’s Club to decorate a table for the ‘Over the Tabletop’ event at the Peninsula Country Club. I was so excited to be able to participate.  I deliberated over my theme for quite a while, finally choosing to design ‘A Bridal Luncheon for a […]

A beautiful old piece…I just couldn’t give this one up.

A beautiful old piece…I just couldn’t give this one up.

I know I always say every piece of furniture is my favorite. But a recent piece I found…oh, it is just fabulous. I went to my local ReStore on a Tuesday (I try to pop in as much as I can on Tuesdays, as that’s when they put all of the new stuff out. I […]

My Dining Room Design…All of the Painting and Gluing Craziness

The ReStore ReStyle 2014 event is done and I had so much fun.  I am still so worn out from the chaos of the past two weeks.  I have done so many projects my head is spinning.  And now I want to break it all down for ya.  First off, here is the final product.  […]

A Bigger Reason

A Bigger Reason

For two weeks now, my hands have been covered in paint and glue.  I have small cuts all over my hands from yanking frames apart.  Yesterday my mother-in-law asked me where the huge bruise on my arm came from and I hadn’t even noticed it.  And frankly, if someone even brings one white plate within 50 […]

DIY Vintage Dress Form

For years I have been salivating over the idea of purchasing a vintage dress form.  At the going rate of $500, I simply couldn’t bring myself to do it.  Seriously though…look at these pictures!  Aren’t they gorgeous?  A vintage dress form has the ability to add an air of chic sophistication to a room.  I.

Adorable Candle Accents for Under $10

For any party, it’s important to give attention to the small things. I truly believe the little details make a party go from good to great. The best part is that it’s so easy to do without spending a ton of money. Candles bring a certain amount of “sparkle” to a party…they are a necessity. I […]

The Wooden Silhouette

The Wooden Silhouette

Southern Nest Silhouettes The silhouette.  It’s classic, elegant, and has an air of vintage sophistication.  Suddenly, I am obsessed.  After browsing different options for having a silhouette made of little B (for myself and as Christmas presents for the grandparents) I knew I wanted an updated spin on the traditional silhouette portrait. It all started […]

Painted Bathroom Cabinets: A Fresh Update with Paint and Beadboard Wallpaper

Painted Bathroom Cabinets: A Fresh Update with Paint and Beadboard Wallpaper

Remember my kitchen cabinet redo and my awful “Before” cabinets? Well, just like my kitchen, all of the cabinets in my bathrooms also suffered from a case of “boring.”  I decided I procrastinated the makeover long enough and I broke out the paint supplies…plus a new weapon.  Beadboard wallpaper.  I first read about using the wallpaper on cabinet […]

Vintage Table Makeover-Feminine Shape and A Little Paint

Vintage Table Makeover-Feminine Shape and A Little Paint

In my office, I have quite literally found that I have no spot to package my monograms.  I have been forced to spread them throughout my home, furiously running around in the evenings, preparing them to be shipped.  I decided, it was time to find a table that was defined for the purpose of tagging and shipping monograms.  […]
