"let it be spring" table setting

Ahh...the sunny days of spring. We got a glimpse of it on the weekend, and it inspired me to set my table with a light, natural look, and just a hint of the green and sparkle that lies ahead. 

The linens are from Crate & Barrel, placemats from IKEA. 

I even recovered my vintage rosewood chairs for a  quick little update. 

Happy weekend everyone.

Feels like Spring needs a little push...

quick refresh: fabric art

Here's a quick and cheap project for getting something up on your walls when you don't want to purchase art. Cover old frames or canvases with fabric.  

You can see that for my bedroom I've covered canvasses and then also reupholstered a bench in the matching fabric. 

All you need is a staple gun. For the bench I also used a glue gun to adhere a strip around the edge where the staples showed. 

Have a great week everyone, and happy stapling.
