The Magnolia Foyer and a Winner

Hello Dear Readers!

I hope you all had a most Merry weekend. Our weekend was a special one

as we had our very first snow of the season. It was a Winter Wonderland of Snow.

About  6 to 8 inches of snow fell pretty much overnight,

and by the late afternoon it started melting due to the freezing rain.

Just hope it doesn’t turn to ice!

I have a couple of “snow photos” for you to see and 

today, it is all about the Magnolia Foyer and a winner.

The foyer in the Berry Patch house is not large,

so simple Christmas decor is all it needs.

Ever So Clever, Ever So Pretty Friday, #13 {A Nailhead Trimmed Table}

Hope everyone has had a wonderful week!..

Today’s project is “ever so clever AND ever so pretty”.

My inspiration for this week came from the talented and creative Laura, of Finding Home.

Laura’s blog is truly one of my favorites…I have been following her as long as I have been blogging.

I am sure that most of you are familiar with Laura’s beautiful home…her projects are always amazing.

So, here is my project today!

I started out with this $5.00 yard sale find and painted it with ASCP Old White…

I added blue vinyl and nailhead trim that came in a roll..yes, a roll.

…..you place a tack in a designated hole about every 5th tack…cool beans!!

You can probably tell by my photos that I did this project at night…

When I was purchasing tacks for this project, the girl at the fabric store showed me this “roll of tacks”….

…..and of course the individual tacks went back to the bin and this roll of tacks was perfect.

The trim went on beautifully.

This table landed in my guest room bath…

…..I love it here.

Taking pics in this room is a challenge as there is no natural light in this room.
