Door Experiment...

Dug some of our doors from the garage the other day and just started playing around with them. Thought this could be a cool photo shoot background or part of a lounge area. Feel free to lay some other ideas on us if they come to mind.

Barn Wood Picking...

Hey Everyone, My names Jason, Maggpie's other half in a handful of ways.... just wanted to make my first post on here and share with you the awesome barn wood pick our friend Joe hooked us up with. Can't wait to cut this up into some furniture! Here's a shot of the heap and our two boys enjoying the weather. Thanks

Expect the Unexpected

We decided to go to an auction last night due to a chalkboard Jason really wanted  (which we won!) but there was a couch & chair there that we obviously couldn't pass up.

Fabric Chandeliers. . a little DIY project

My Inspiration: During the winter I wanted to make "snowflakes" for my front window so I strung individual pieces of fabric on thread (by bunching them) and just attached them across the window_simple. I finally took them down this past weekend (oops) and I just bunched them together and hung them up quick to get them out of the way and I thought they looked kinda cool bunched together. . like a chandelier. . .

So then I decided to make some more by using old curtains, pillow cases and some crocheted lace. The colors work really nicely with an upcoming wedding I have and I'd love to decorate the lounge area with these hanging above. . or maybe Anthropologie will want to borrow them for their store??? hah

Deal of the Weekend !

During our ventures this weekend we acquired these two beautiful chairs ! I couldn't believe when I saw the price tag on them & I'm still trying to figure out why they were SO cheap because they're in PRISTINE condition ! 
. . .they currently reside in our living room (we're maxed out and our house has no furniture anymore . . so it's a win win)

Floral Patterns, Lace Trims & Ruffles !

Wow ! It's been awhile huh? We haven't gone anywhere... just hard at work (the website.. I promise it's coming ! & well worth the wait)

One of my personal favorites ? Turning old sheets & curtains into table linens ! I love the floral patterns, lace trims & ruffles . . I can't possibly pass these beauties up _ EVER ! During an estate sale I can normally be found sifting through piles upon piles of linens. . attempting to stuff all I can into my bag (sounds a bit like a problem doesn't it?) but I love bringing them home and creating something fantastic !
Here are a few of my new additions.

Old valances turned into a simple table linen

Bed sheets make a great base for a table linen. . Valance with ruffles ( well need I say more) . .Pillow Cases can be used for adorning a chair back or a seat cushion ! So many possibilities ! I better get back to work ;)
