Foyer & Staircase Redo

Hello everyone!

I hope that you had a good weekend.  It was nice to finally get some much needed rain and cooler temps here.  Our grass is smiling big now!

  Since it rained most of the day on Saturday, I decided to do some painting inside.  I have been wanting to get rid of the orange/brown color stain on my stair treads for a long time.  I finally got up the nerve to get my white paint out and just tackle it!  My knees are feeling it now too!  But, I'm very happy with the outcome.  Here is what my stair case looked like before.

Industrial Style Faucet

Happy Friday!

I wanted to share my newest love with you today.  Can you really "love" a faucet?  Well, I'm here to say you can!  I loved my old faucet (which was an oil rubbed bronze bridge style) but the sprayer that came with it stopped working properly.  I use the sprayer a lot so that was an important feature to have.  So, as I was contemplating just replacing the sprayer, I started looking at new faucets altogether.  That's normal isn't it?  Anyway, I have always thought about what I would have in a new house (in the future) so I thought about this faucet!  It must've been meant to be  since my consignment store check covered the cost of it too.  So, it was practically free!

This is the faucet that I got.

Share Your Style Party #19

Hello everyone!

I hope you're having a nice week so far.  It has been very hot here, but I believe things will finally start cooling down in the next few days.  Thank goodness!  I'm so happy that you're here and I look forward to seeing what you're sharing this week.  Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane is your host this week.

Cool Summer Sheets

Hello everyone!

Recently, I was contacted by Perfect Linens to review some sheets.  These aren't just your standard sheets that are sold in stores either.  Nope!  These are extremely well made, well designed sheets that have a lot of science put into them that make them  amazing to sleep on!  

So, the first sign that they were going to be special was how they arrived.  They believe in a good presentation.  Fed ex delivered them promptly and lots of soft tissue paper greeted me when I opened the box!

Friday Ramblings

Hello everyone!

Are you glad it's Friday?  I'll be honest.  Since I'm on a summer schedule (of no school for my son) I find myself losing track of what day it is from time to time.  But, I do like Friday's since everyone seems to be more in "weekend mode" thinking. 

Today, I wanted to just share a few different things so I titled this post as "ramblings" since that is mostly what it is.  

Our garden is doing very well!  We've already used our first tomato from it and cooked some squash last night from it.

Share Your Style Party #18

Hello everyone!
Welcome to the party tonight.  I'm hoping to see many "cool and refreshing" ideas shared here this week since it has been so hot here in Georgia.  We have been in a heat wave all week and it doesn't look like it's going to end any time soon.  So, share something that will put some "wind in my sails"!  This week, Debra from Common Ground is your host.

A New Use for a Closet

Hello everyone!

I mentioned in an earlier blog post that I was going to be using my spare bedroom closet for something that I've needed for a long time.  But, before I share that with you, I thought about all of the other cool ideas I could've done with it.  In fact, it would've been much more photo worthy than what I ended up doing with it!

I could've turned it into a compact office.
