I'm a little more country than that

Initiation, per say........

I suppose to really be able to start posting creative ideas and DIY projects I had better start by revealing disclaiming my style of unique decor.  Here are a few pictures from past or recent projects that have each played a part in turning our (my husband, 2 dogs, and I) house into a home.

Our Robin's Egg Blue kitchen table. This table marks the purchasing of my very first obital sander!  The unfinished top was found in our alley, score! Thanks to the help of my husband and in-laws, it turned out pretty nice with a bit of work and optimism!

 A close up of one of the legs.  I love the wood grain and chose to just seal the wood rather than paint or stain and just let its natural beauty contrast with the robbin's egg blue top.

Next, a small step ladder from the local flea market.

A little sanding but that's it so far. 

This doily table runner is an external inspiration from the beautiful and talented Ashley Ann from Under the Sycamore.  This was fun to hunt for the doilies at local second hand stores and flea markets and then put it all together and create a fantastic outcome in no time at all!
