Antique Dresser


Recently we have added several traditional antique pieces of furniture in our house. This mahogany flamed dresser found a new home in a spare room downstairs. This room will one day be our nursery, but until then it's being used as a sitting room.



This vignette is decorated with an eclectic mix of new and old pieces. The lamps, mirror, and pillows are new while the chairs, shutter, and other accessories are vintage.



Another feature that I love about this room is the detailed mirrored closet doors that date back to the 1800's.  


They are a main focal point of the room that add so much character to the space. I was so excited we were able to incorporate them into the new house!


This antique secretary is a family piece past down from my husbands family. It will eventually be moved upstairs to the guest bedroom.


I really love the look of the dark dresser with the light colored walls and accessories.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Spring Porch


Good afternoon! Today I thought I would share the progress of our spring porch. We are coming up on a year since we moved into our new house and we finally have the back porch projects finished. This past weekend we were busy hanging drapes and putting the new black sofa together.


 It's so nice to have the back porch all cleaned up and decorated for the warmer weather. We enjoy sitting outside at night watching TV, just lounging and relaxing.


There is a variety of vintage and newer pieces mixed together with DIY projects to create a comfortable, extended living space outside. 


For example, the wooden bench and chippy shutters were flea market finds, the iron tables, rug, pillows, and sofa is new, and the rustic coffee table was revamped by us. 


I can't get enough of bright potted flowers and ferns this time of year! They really help freshen up the back porch.





This decorative mirror and boxwood wreath are perfect for this black iron table.


We bought canvas Sunbrella fabric and cut to length for instant outdoor drapes. We tried drop-cloth fabric drapes at our old house and loved the look, but they mildewed and were a mess. So we decided to go with real outdoor fabric and just make our own this go around. 


Not only do I love the look of the drapes, but they are perfect for sun control and allow privacy too.



I'm sure we will be spending a lot of time out here this spring and summer.


I hope you have a blessed Wednesday!
