What a difference Paint makes!

All the golden oak furniture & cabinets are almost all history from my home! WooHoo!
Sure hope it never comes back in style! LOL!

If you remember last fall I redid my golden oak dining table. Gave it a black base with a mahogany gel stained top. It turned out gorgeous! You can see it here. I mean anything was better than that orangy oak! Well, I still had a curio cabinet in golden oak which needed a makeover. So I started the project, but soon discovered hubby would be better at doing this. I just hate sanding wood!
So thankfully hubby agreed to do the job and he finished it yesterday. What a difference paint makes! So happy it is no longer looking dated but current and hip in a lovely black satin!!



Even got some new knobs!

I went ahead and started decorating for fall yesterday. I know I'm a bit early, but the weather felt liked fall and I'm looking forward to fall this year. Guess I had my fill of summer & lake time this year. Have you all started decorating your homes for fall yet?? I'l post pics of my fall decor in a few days. Until then...Take Care & God Bless You!

What's New & HOT??

Sorry I've been MIA lately. I have a good excuse! In fact it's a FABULOUS excuse, I mean reason. Our custom baby & kid's rug business - Creative Carpet Design is TAKING OFF!! Yippee!!! Horray!!! WooHoo!!!

So since it is taking off...I am BUSY,BUSY,BUSY!!! So the blog has had to go on the back burner, as well as other things. I still have not started redecorating our master bedroom but hope to this fall/winter. Hubby has taken over painting my golden oak curio cabinet black, so as soon as it is done I'll be sure to show you all!!

Meanwhile, thought I would show you a couple photos from a photo shoot we had done of our custom initial rugs.

Oh and I heard from one of our retailers that the HOT new color for baby nurseries is Gray. Have you noticed this in stores yet? What colors do you see as the accent color with gray??
Oh and one more question for you.......is it Grey or Gray??
Take Care!
