How One Piece of Furniture Can Anchor a Room {Sunroom}

There is always a story behind a room,

whether it is how the room came together over time

or came together as a result of a visit to a furniture showroom.

This room was about the showroom and a hubby that loves symmetry and “matchy matchy”

When my magazine feature was recently published in French Country Style magazine,

we both noticed something. Well at least he agreed about “that something”

Ever So Clever, Ever So Pretty Friday, #12 {Chalkboard Paint Trophy}

Last Sunday, I went to Lucketts…to attend the Spring Market and go the the Hometalk Meetup.

I had such a wonderful time.

Next door to the Hometalk booth, was the booth of Marian, a.k.a., Miss Mustard Seed.

I purchased a couple of great items from Marian and also got this week’s “blogger inspiration”


Can you guess the inspiration piece?


It is this!…

When I saw this piece, I knew I should try and paint a ceramic trophy cup I purchased from Target.


Using my Valspar Chalkboard paint…I brushed on two coats…


And here is my version…


I did a little vignette change to this table..bringing in a couple of toleware pieces.



Added a cloche atop a silver compote with a bird’s nest to the vignette…



Hope you enjoyed my inspiration piece that I received from Marian (Miss Mustard Seed) today…

May you all have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!
