Shop My Living Room

Shop My Living Room

Often I am asked where I shop for our living room.

SO, here I am sharing exact sources for items like the rug, and items I have found that are quite similar to get the look!

Locally, near Greensboro, North Carolina, I love to shop The French Farmer’s Wife and Chartreuse barn shows for those unexpected finds. In the upper left photo, Steve and I made the old window header into a mantel. I discovered the chunky wood coffee table at a used store fixture shop. And the old columns were collected around town from flea markets and antique stores. My fave white leather Moroccan poufs were gifts from the ladies at The French Farmer’s wife.

Stencil And Paint An All-Season Glass Home Sign

Stencil And Paint An All-Season Glass Home Sign

Honestly, unlike my artsy, creative friends and neighbors, I have never been an ambitious seasonal decorator. So, I selected this lovely Home sign by Muddaritaville Studio for this reverse-painted glass project because I can make it work all year round at our little covered porch at the back door. I chose Fusion Mineral Paint colors that can blend with fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas when I add coordinating décor items. It was so fun to use so many fabulous colors all at once. The Fusion fan deck made it so easy.

Paint Artsy Glass Dishes – In Reverse!

There’s nothing easier than painting on the back side of clear glass plates. They can be found at dollar stores and Goodwill, and are surprisingly durable. These are from our daughter Mia’s wedding reception in June and I knew exactly how to re-use them.

I am going to do two different patterns, one on the dinner plate, and another on the salad plate, so that they look amazing layered together. I am painting with Fusion Mineral Paint in my favorite coordinating colors, plus two Muddaritaville Studio stencil designs.

I bought this old church bulletin board ages ago at a favorite antique store. The moment I saw it, I knew it could be for jewelry. Steve added the dowel at the top to hang earrings, and we added cup hooks for my necklaces. I painted a rustic, textured white on the outside, and for this project, I painted Fusion Mineral Paint Homestead Blue on the inside that matches the little cabinet below. This piece is so large I can fit my ever-growing collection no problem. (That may not be a good thing.) When I travel in the US or overseas, a piece of jewelry is my favorite to collect and wear. So many ever-lasting wonderful memories.

Let’s stencil a gorgeous reverse-painted glass serving tray with Fusion Mineral Paint metallic paint that’s perfect for a summer wine and cheese party – or even the holidays! The Muddaritaville stencil featuring white wines is my fave, and there is one for reds too. Think making these with friends, or create several in different colors to give as gifts.
