    Oh fun- I’m heading over right now! I’m a book worm too, and I’ll never convert to a kindle/nook. I just love the feel of a book in my hand way too much!

  5. I’m in love with the chair. I have a similar chair and have debated on painting in black. I think I might go for it!

    I have a similar chair (bamboo right?) and I just tried to stain mine with a fairly dark stain, but found that the bamboo didnt take the stain evenly…. which is unfortunate! Just wondering if you have any suggestions, or what color did you paint those ones?

      The chairs are bamboo and where originally wood with staining on them. In order to get your stain to come on perfectly you would have had to have stained off the old stain completely. It’s hard to do and a lot of work.

      We didn’t want natural wood in this space so painting was our best solution. I roughed up the wood with some sand paper, used high-gloss spray paint in black, let that dry and then used gloss wipe on poly.

      It was really simple and made a world of difference.

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.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
