Farmhouse Dining Room

We’ve been in our house 4 months now and I haven’t painted a single wall, until now.   So while the husband was away hunting for the week, I had asked my mom to come stay for a week so I could start a few projects.  I wanted to start with our dining room.  It will […]

Barrels for a Wedding

Over my weekend of shopping, I had FINALLY found a barrel.  I have had a lot of requests for these and never realized how hard it would be to find them!  But I found my first one and the hunt continues on!  The barrel is up for rent now.   Here it is..   I found […]

Antique Country Style Buffet

Back in late December, I had posted this picture of this antique buffet on my facebook page (www.facebook.com/countrystyleaccents ).  I wanted opinions of what color to paint it.
