Loving this home outlet!

If you are local to the Cincinnati area, we have a new outlet in town.  Bargains & Buyouts  also has an Ebay store.  I recently found a new living room medallion rug!  This place is a hit or miss. You never know what they will have in stock. That's the fun of it!

I also found this black & white chevron rug there a while ago!

If local, give it a try.  Have a nice weekend!

Updated Sun room

This sun room is off the back of our house and we love it. But, It was time for an update. Here are some before pics:

This was a project we started a few weeks back. The metal tables have been sold and so have the curtains. Yah for Craigslist!!    We installed tile on the carpeted step that the dog messed up by pulling up the fibers. Nice!   I have since finished painting the rest of the doors white too:

I painted over the yellow with some gray paint from the great room project and painted the molding that had yet to get the white treatment:

The old faded cushions were recovered with this indoor/outdoor fabric:

Robert Allen Baja Awning Marine

And the dining chairs were also recovered with more indoor/outdoor fabric:

New white leather couch.....

White Leather Casino sofa

And a few 'after' shots.
   I found this table (along with 2 end tables that I am going to use elsewhere) at the Ashley Outlet center here in town:

The other 2 end tables were found at a resale store here in town.  
Loving the new dining chairs. 

And the finished room:

Glad to have this project complete.
Happy Thursday!

Gold Fireplace Screens

I love the things available at Horchow. Usually out of my price range, but still pretty none the less.  For example, their gold fireplace screens are so unique: looking around my house, I really like our fireplace screen but decided it might need a quick update:

I've been saving this link so when a gold spray paint project came up, I would remember the 'right' gold to buy which I could only find at Home Depot:

The 'before' shot:

And, what do you think of the after?! 

I might be busy this holiday updating the mirrors too?!

Happy Wednesday & Happy 4th of July!
