    Wow, you've got some hairy arms! I kid, I kid! I love the tables. I find myself wondering where to implement all of the diy projects you do–they are always fabulous and unique!

    Don't you love all of my projects are always we, we, we, but when it comes down to it I always dream up what I want and Jon makes it happen. Hence the hairy arms!

    What a great way to revive some old tables! My only concern is whether or not the grasscloth would stain over time…but then again, that's what coasters are for, right? Great job (as always) Camila!

    I have had my eye on one table, an Oomph for 4,000 but seriously, 2 kids need to go to college, so this one will be a DIY!

    Uugh! I almost picked up a set of nesting tables at auction last week, but no immediate inspiration came to mind so I let them pass! I like the results of your work – next time I will get the tables! 🙂

    GENIUS. i have been mulling for months over what to do with some side tables i got at a thrift store. they have similar corners to the quatrefoil 'tini table by oomph, and i bet they'd look fabulous covered with some leftover grasscloth i snagged from my parents' attic!

get inspired with our own home tour


My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

ready to finally love your space?

yes! I'm ready!
