New coffee table for the shop.

I just finished a high gloss white faux bamboo coffee table for the shop and will be for sale at The Modern Cottage this Saturday. Unfortunately I won't be able to get on the Internet for a few days because the charger cord for my computer split. So please excuse the radio silence! For more pictures click here.

DIY with my David Hicks knock off fabric.


Some instagram love. This is a peek at a project I'm finishing up using that knock off David Hicks fabric I got from Spoon Flower, I tooooold you the size of the print was perfection. I give this fabric two thumbs up, in fact I can't wait to order more. These pair of chairs are in a high gloss white paint.


And a DIY: My mom gave me white old rusty white umbrella stand. I sprayed it using a texturized black/charcoal paint. The durability of this stuff is awesome too!



Now it looks brand new!!

Grant K. Gibson.


You may recognize these photo's. The dining room of Grant K. Gibson. This is by far my absolutely most favorite dining room creation. The color palate is fairly daring but, over all the finish product is remarkably easy on the eye. This here is a great article on the home.




Oh, and just a few photo's from his blog to reel you in! ;)

Pacific galleries aka decor heaven.

Last week I stopped in to Pacific Galleries in Seattle. It's basically decor heaven.

EVVVERYONE told me to go for the longest time and I finally did. It's truly the most incredible place, I've found so far to shop for vintage finds. Here are some photo's for your viewing pleasure.
