This Week at My 100 Year Old Home


September is almost here. I cannot wait to share with you all of my projects and Fall Decorating ideas at my 100 year old home.


It feels like September is right around the corner. And I think that means it’s time to start thinking about my fall decorating ideas.

We finally came home from the beach (we were escaping the heat) and I have been spending all of my time working on our third-floor bedroom remodel. I am participating in a Makeover in a  Month challenge and it’s been really fun!

Well, except for the slipcover. More on that later.

First, let’s take a look at what happened this past week at My 100 Year Old Home.

It's been such a fun week and I loved sharing so many exciting and creative ideas with you.

A lot of you have been asking about the furniture and lighting I found for our bedroom makeover. You might remember when I remodeled this bedroom at the Waco Airbnb.


Everything in this room is from Bed, Bath and Beyond.

I loved this room so much, and I am thrilled to be working with Bed, Bath and Beyond again.  They are helping me with the third floor bedroom remodel.

You can see most of the items I picked out with the links to the furniture below. I am so excited about all of these items!

Setting the Table

These are the wood table tops shared on my blog this week the DIY to Make my Wood Table Tops that you see here in this photo above. So many of you have thought this is a huge square dining room table. Well, it’s not. It is two wood table tops that I made to fit snugly on top of plastic tables. (You know the cheap kind!) You have asked for this DIY for a long time and I finally shared it this week. I do want to say that your response absolutely blew me away! Thank you.

What’s Coming on My Blog Next Week?

I look forward to sharing all of this and more with you this coming week.

  1. I don’t know about you Lesley but I am so glad fall is around the corner. I’ve had enough of this hot weather. Everything is so much better when the temp. drops a little. Can’t wait to see what you have to share on fall decorations your ideas are all so wonderful. Right now I’m making the hot glue gun stenciled napkins that you’ve made. I only hope they come out as good as yours. Will share on pintrest when I’m done. Have a great day and try to stay cool. XOXO from Corfu Greece.
