New Living Room Look

Happy Friday everyone!  We have had kids visiting form Oregon here all week.  It has been a lot of fun with grandkiddos here.  The giggles and snuggles are the best.

But today I wanted to show you my new living room furniture.  It gives our home a New Living Room Look.

This is what it used to look like.

Here is a sneak peek of something new to change our New Living Room Look.

Love Seat Feet

Shopping for Antiques in Boulder City NV

Welcome! I don’t know about you, but I love to look through antique stores and thrift shops!  One of my blogging friends LOVES to do that as well. Donna from Funky Junk Interiors was visiting Las Vegas for the first time, so we had some fun.  We spent the morning at the Neon Museum and then headed out to Hoover dam and then for a little shopping in Boulder City, NV.  I was excited to show Donna some of my favorite shops. So we went Shopping for Antiques in Boulder City NV.

Small Side Table Makeover Using Fusion Mineral Paint

Happy Thursday! And welcome to Themed Furniture Makeover Day.  It is one of my favorite posts each month.  Several bloggers have a theme, choose a piece of furniture and do their interpretation of the theme.  This month’s theme is small tables.

Themed Furniture Makeover Day Buttton

I chose to work on a Small Side Table Makeover Using Fusion Mineral Paint. I got the paint as a sample at SNAP! Conference and also used a portion on my “new” vintage sign.

Small Table Before Makeover

This is the small table is about to make a transformation from light pink to a beachy color called Laurentine. This color will be ideal for a new look on our front porch.

The table was a sample from when my husband was a furniture sales rep.  He carried this metal and glass table around in his car, show it to furniture store owners and then I ended up keeping it.  When it was a sample, it was a gray, steel color.  It was nice for the time, but I wanted a little color to it.

I painted it with craft paint mixing white with a few drops of red to make it light pink.  It has been like that for a few years, and I have never really liked it. Weird how that happens, isn’t it?Continue Reading

Neon Museum in Las Vegas

I had the good fortune of meeting up with two of my favorite bloggers a few weeks ago. Leanne from Organize Your Stuff Now and Donna from Funky Junk Interiors. We hiked in Red Rock Canyon, (Donna posted about our day on her blog) laughed, took pictures, got lost a little, and talked a little bit about blogging.  It was fun to get to know them and their personalities.

Donna was here in Vegas for a conference.  And she had never been to Las Vegas.  That was fun!  We were able to show her things here that most tourists don’t get to see.

We had planned on going to the Neon Museum in Las Vegas. BUT the tours were booked and all three of us couldn’t go at the same time.  So Donna booked a tour for the both of us for the next day. I was really excited, as I had never even heard of the Neon Museum before. (I know, what kind of resident am I, right?)

I picked Donna up from her hotel and we were on our way…

Neon Museum

Can you tell what this pattern is??? It is interlocking Hs for the Las Vegas Hilton.  Obviously it is on it’s side, but isn’t is gorgeous?

How To Make Your Own Vintage Sign

I have been infatuated with the whole idea of How To Make Your Own Vintage Sign for awhile now. I even shared a post 2 years ago about 12 Homemade Signs. I had found each one of them on Pinterest.

After a few years I decided it was time for me to make my own vintage sign.  It is a knock off of the ones I found on Pinterest.  Of course, I added my own twist, but it looks amazing for our home.

Not only that…But, several of my blogging friends have knocks offs of their own.  I can’t wait to see what they have come up with. Their knock off creations will be listed in the bottom of this post.

Rock Your Knock Off

Here is a quick peek at my sign.  Can you say love???

Now let me show you my version of How To Make Your Own Vintage Sign…
