I have been collecting vintage cake stands for years. I honestly thought I was the only person that collected these. Then last year I opened my Magnolia Magazine and sure enough, I found another wise person who collects cake stands … Joanna Gaines.
The key piece of furniture in my office makeover is the “project table”. As much as I wanted to find a table exactly like the ones Joanna Gaines has in her “flower room” (which I used as my inspiration photo), I knew reality would set in and I would need to compromise.
There is a very interesting room in our house that is located off of our family room and living room. It has been known as my office for the last 17 years and it was in great need of a makeover. Why? Because it’s really dark and kind of claustrophobic. (And to be totally honest, it is NEVER this clean.)
There was a time when all of my recipes came from my recipe box or my huge collection of cookbooks. Nowadays, I seem to find my inspiration online from Pinterest and the very enticing Tasty videos. When it comes time to cooking one of these recipes, I usually print the recipe and then leave it on my island … only to find it ruined with remnants of my cooking exploration! (This can’t just be me…)
I think one of the biggest challenges every homeowner and designer faces is “how to hide the TV”. I am sorry but even a flat screen doesn’t look good with my farmhouse decor. Seventeen years ago when we remodeled our downstairs we had a linen press built in our family room to “hide the TV”. If you don’t know what a linen press is, I looked up the definition.
