Succulent Terrarium


Memorial Day is this weekend and people will be gathered with friends and families. Lots of BBQ and decorating happening. All to celebrate our soldiers that fought and died for our country.

 All the more to do something in honor of this celebration. Last year I created buntings with material I found at Old Time Pottery for the porch. This year, I had an idea to create something that can be used way after the weekend is over.

A Patriotic Succulent Terrarium.


I created this with some Old Time Pottery supplies. You can too! It is something you can all year long.

Head over to Old Time Pottery for complete instructions.

Happy Memorial Day!

Staging a Master Bedroom

I have been missing for a while. Life has been crazy. My husband has been in the hospital again. This time it was a hernia surgery turned into an emergency surgery. He is home healing. 
Needless-to-say that has kept me from doing much needed things!

One thing I did manage to do with all the craziness is take a home staging course!
I felt like it would enhance the design and redesign services offered at Dreamingincolor.

At the end of the course we staged a home going on the market for sale. This was one of the bedrooms I staged.

How to make a Birdhouse Lamp

Haven, Flat, House, Home.
Whatever the word you use, it has meaning to you.

When I think of the word home I think of Design and Family.

I love creating in my home. When I do I like to share it here on my blog. Many times I will give you a step by step tutorial that can help you produce it yourself. I have done a few things with birds before like Turning a birdcage into a chandelier.

Today I will teach you How to make a birdhouse lamp.
This is one of my favorite projects to date. It just looks so cute. All it took was a really cool lamp I picked up at Old Time Pottery. It is one of those fill lamps.


Home was the inspiration!

Country Living Fair 2015 Giveaway


I am so excited to be going to the Country Living Fair again this year. I am even more excited that it will be held in Lebanon, Tennessee! I had a chance to go to the Atlanta,GA Country Living Fair right before I opened my store, Dreamingincolor. Talk about inspiration! There was so much to see and what great items to purchase. I wrote about it here.


One of the many highlights was getting to meet Cari from Cash and Cari on HGTV. Such an eye for vintage and design.


She will be featured again at the Country Living Fair next weekend. The infamous American Picker Mike Wolfe will be there too. I hope to meet him. I have to say I watch all the shows sometimes twice. I am weird like that. Ha!

For all that don't know, Mike has a place in downtown Nashville at Marathon Village called Antique Archaeology.



There is so much art and vintage in one place. I will be going with a group of friends and bloggers. I hope to buy some neat things for the store too.


So why am I telling you about this?

French Chest Country Chic Paint

Whether you are new to this site or not you will notice real fast what I do around here!
Color and design is a passion of mine and has been for as long as I can remember.
I love to paint and that lends to the design work. One of the reasons I started carrying Country Chic Paint in my store Dreamingincolor, is because of the wonderful colors and packaging design. The way it can be manipulated, as an artist, is a strong point too, not to mention NO VOC's!

This week Country Chic Paints introduced its new 2015 Limited Edition spring colors. I used one of the new colors on the drawers of this chest. Pink lemonade. Pink Lemonade is a light coral/pink color. It looks great paired with Midnight Sky.


I also kept the original color on the pulls. They really are the jewelry on this piece.

Easter Bunny Centerpiece

Easter is around the corner. Want something different for your table?

Try this Easter Centerpiece I made for Old Time Pottery!

This Easter Centerpiece is a decoration that both the adults and children will enjoy. It is a twist with a little think outside the box action. I like using different objects to create with. 

While shopping at Old Time Pottery, I fell in love with a wire vase. I picked it up, placed it in my cart, and began thinking of a different way to use it. I love the texture and and twist of wire. I decided it would make a great bunny. This led to the Easter Centerpiece creation!



I started with a few supplies from Old Time Pottery
