It’s no big secret that I am a lover of gold spray paint. I wanted to share yet another tryst in our long, laborious affair.
My parents bought this table in 1977, the year they bought our beach condo. It was in rough shape (totally rusted and scratched) and didn’t make the cut after the redesign. So I loaded it into the truck and hauled it home hoping to use it somewhere on our back porch that was being built at the time.
Well, 20 minutes and a few coats of gsp and she has a whole new life- currently being used as a bar cart on the porch.
Because it’s outside 24/7 there is some minor patina that occurs, but I love it. It add character.
For those of you that have been following #theneverendingporchproject on Instagram, this post is a long time coming. Almost a year ago, I started working with Jeff at Great Falls Landscapes on the concept.
We worked for weeks on the plan.. And finally came up with perfection.
There were a lot of changes along the way. And while it took what seems like forever to build, I couldn’t be happier with the end results. It’s funny, before finding GFL, I had initially hired someone else, and ultimately fired him two weeks in due to his lack of creativity. So glad that I found them! Jeff and Lance were amazing to work with and really “went” with my crazy ideas..
(This was right before E’s Party.. pics to come on that later..)
It’s no secret that I am a HomeGoods addict. Friends who shop with me know entering a HomeGoods is like me getting ready for “the big game.” I am focused. I am competitive. Let’s review the fruits of my labor, shall we?
Both nightstands in our guest bedroom? HomeGoods.. Oh yeah and those pink Ralph Lauren pillows too!
These Cynthia Rowley cups were $2.99 each. Make great vases, eh?
Basically everything on this dresser… HomeGoods.
Our living room table too. Not to mention those two green ottomans.
This chest, lamp (+ some leftover green spray paint) and coral? You guessed it.
And my little Louie’s room. Probably the single most popular topic that I receive emails about. Her coverlet and shams are from HomeGoods, not to mention nearly every decorative item on her bookshelves.
Pictures of our porch are coming soon, but you probably saw the post on this table. The coral and lotus candle holder are great styling accessories- both under $10!
So there you have it- that’s just a few of the bazillion HomeGoods gems that I have scored. That being said, I was tickled pink when HomeGoods Corporate reached out to me and asked me to host a shopping party. They were gracious enough to let me pick my favorite store, which happens to be right in my neighborhood. They’ll be a gift card in it for every guest as well as a chance to win some major HomeGoods cash. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite items as well as a few tips and tricks that I save for my clients. Think of it as some free personal shopping. So…. for you readers in the DC Area, if you would like to attend, please send me an email at email@example.com so I can add you to the list. Spaces are limited!
