✥ Guest Post: Ruffled Burlap Union Jack Pillow ✥

Good morning lovelies!

 Terry has a darling little blog where she shares her goodwill shopping adventures and her love of spray paint! Not to mention she's head over heel for scrapbooking. While you're over there make sure you check out her pantry makeover- using gift wrap!!
Terry is a real sweetheart and I know you'll think she's great.
Make sure you add her weekly Linky party, Sunday Blog Love, to your list. I make it a point to be there each and every week!
See you there!!

✥ My Style Defined ✥

In case you missed this post I did for Jennifer at a Place 2 Call Home- here it is. She invited me to talk about my design style, so pull up the computer, get cozy!
 Here's a pic of our home- ok, let me be more clear, it's the dining room part of the living/dining room/kitchen which I call "livitchen". For the past three years, the condo life has been, livitchen.
This pic is perfect for showing my love for both styles! I love the vintage globes and suitcases above a brand new Ikea mirror and very modern moose head! 
Truly, my style falls into four categories: "NEW-NEW", "OLD-NEW," "NEW-OLD," and "OLD-OLD."
The New-New- Our sectional is what you would call "new-new". It's a custom made sectional from Basset Furniture and I designed it to have clean lines and a modern feel. Pretty much all the pillow cases on the couch are also "new-new." Surprisingly, "new-new" is kinda fun to say!

The New-Old- This is when you buy something with the intent to change it into something that looks "aged". Take a look at the curtain panels behind my couch. They are new Ikea curtain panels that I stenciled with a damask stencil. I wanted to create an aged looking fabric to balance the newness of the couch.

The Old-New-These are the things we already have that get a makeover to resurrect an old item and make it into a new one. The lamp on my front table in the livitchin was a brass monster, but had these gorgeous lines. I used a 20 cent clearance can of spray paint to makeover the lamp and also the mantel clock beside my couch. It was this ugly old thing the hubs received as a gift ages ago. I gave both a fancy little face lift and transformed the look. 

The Old-Old- We should all be familiar with this category. These are all our vintage finds- the stuff we scour thrift stores and maybe even Ebay for.  I have several vintage finds scattered around the home. I heart the old blue mason jars and their zinc lids and old fans like this turquoise beaut on the table.
My apiary sign on my gallery wall is old-old- but it was a makeover too. It was an old wood sign that looked a mess and I painted it to look like a different old wood sign. My husband says it's the wild west in me... even though I'm from the east coast.

Thanks for touring my crib!

✥ Feature: Knock Off Decor ✥

Guess what!? 
{maybe you can tell from the title of the post, or the banner above this sentence, but...}
Today Beckie from Knock Off Decor {and from Infarrantly Creative} is featuring the new table I made! 

Her site is fantastic! You guys know how much love a good knock off, well her site is an awesome source of inspiration.
It's kinda like shopping.  You can basically browse the blog by store, gathering ideas to hack as you go. It's great and there are so many ideas to chose from.
 {I know a ton of you gals are DIY-ers yourselves. Did you know you can submit your own knock offs!}
Beckie has been kind enough to feature a few of my others projects as well, so head over and show her some love.
You'll be glad you did. ☺
