Touring Through Blogland

Hello, friends!!

Today I am participating in this fun blog tour that's been going around in blog land! The lovely Lisa from Texas Decor was kind enough to ask me to join and of course I said YES! You just can't say no to this lovely Texan woman who's decorating style makes me feel right at home! She's more of a friend than a fellow blogger and we've even done some gift exchanges by mail!  She's so sweet! There has been many fun updates to her home decor so I invite you to go check her out!

So now I welcome you to come on in and get to know me and my blog a little more and maybe let me get to know you a little more, too!

Black & Gold Table Makeover

Hello friends!

Have you ever looked at a piece of furniture and realized how boring that piece had become? 

That's how I felt about my black entry table when I really looked at it as I shared my Living Room Spring/Summer Tour with you.

It just didn't fascinate me like it once did.

And I had to change that....ASAP.

Since I am currently drooling over anything gold, it was a no brainer to incorporate some gold to this black boring table.    

There's nothing that gold won't make dazzle. Nothing.

And this BLACK AND GOLD TABLE definitely dazzles now!

Alright my peeps, how many of you have an obsession with burlap like I do?

I've been incorporating more and more burlap in our home and I'm always finding new inspiration to pin and add to my project to do list.

By the way, I have a board on Pinterest devoted to all things Burlap, so if you don't follow me there, you should! 

Since I'm stalking burlap projects so much these days, it made sense to share some of my absolute favorite DIY BURLAP PROJECTS with you!

Aren't I nice?

Framed Keys On Burlap {Fun DIY Art}

Three things this gal is currently loving: keys, burlap and gray weathered stain.

And I have proof.... over a year ago I blogged about these Framed Antique Keys

And here I am (again, over a year later) still trying to incorporate more keys into our home decor.

This time I brought my new love of weathered gray stain to make this super easy, super fun and super stylish FRAMED KEYS ART.
