Box Planter For Above the TV

Happy New Year Everyone!

Today I am sharing some changes to our family room since taking down all the Christmas decor. You can see this room decorated for Christmas HERE.

You know that I am not a huge fan of wall mounted TV's, especially above the fireplace. However, some rooms are set up best that way, which is the case for our room.
I had garland up above the TV over the holidays and loved it. That sparked an idea.

If you were here last summer you might remember the Tool Box Table Runner that I made for the dining room.
Well, I spray painted it in Dark Walnut Spray Paint by Rustoleum. Then, to let a little green through, I took a razor blade to it. I thought the green color would be too bright against the dark wood. I didn't want it to be that noticeable.
I attached D Rings to the top back of the box. Drilled screws into the wood wall and hung the box up.
The box had real greens in it before but the plants needed to be re potted because their roots were crowded. I cleaned the dirt out and put Spanish moss and faux greenery inside. The greens are two garlands intertwined.
If you don't follow us on Instagram then let me tell you about the other things that are new here.

Notice the two lamps to your left? Yay! I found some that were not too bulky and they give off a soft, direct light. They are from Homegoods and only $60 each.
This might be over kill on the faux greens but I bought these hanging plants for another space in the house but hung them here for now. (pretend you don't see the cords in the background)
Since the planters are light weight they can just hang from our stocking hooks, which are not actually hooks but furniture nails.
There it is! No more Christmas but still a lot of greens.

Snow is a special treat here in southern Virginia. We got 12 inches in one day.

An Office for Her

I have struggled with an idea of what to make of this front room. We had french doors put here because it's just off the foyer. The model home of our builder had one similar to this and I thought it was super pretty.

A Little Love Story

Since today is my wedding anniversary I thought I'd write a quick story about the man behind this blog & me. He makes it possible for me to do the things I love.

The Family Room with a Question for You

Today I got my camera out to take a few pictures of Mazi. She got a fresh new hair cut yesterday and she looks like she lost 50% of her weight.

Black and White Dining

Happy Monday!
I hope you are all enjoying summer. Here in Virginia we are having the best weather. We deserve it after such high humidity for three weeks. We needed a relief.

Foyer Gallery Wall

The entire time while building this house I was imagining this wall with a console table along it with  a simple mirror or horse picture above it.

Let Your House Shine & a Glimpse at the 2nd Floor

As I drove through the neighborhood tonight I noticed some exterior lights that seem to come on automatically at dusk. Some people turned on their porch lights which I think makes a home look like friendly place.

Lightly Staging a Charming Ranch House


Thanksgiving is tomorrow...I can't even believe it. 

I am sad not to be spending the holiday with our families. But I have to admit that I am so excited to do all the cooking. I love making the whole traditional Thanksgiving dinner with Marc and the boys. It's back to the four of us and our own family traditions now that we are here in Virginia.
