Trendy Grey Entertainment Console

 I bought this console awhile back. It's been sitting in my garage halfway painted for months, that's how I roll. I love it! Of course I want to keep it, but there's no space. :( Anyway, I was originally going to paint it black, (surprising, right?) but after priming it grey I decided it had to stay grey. (notice how my grass is green again? yay!)

 I love the hardware! It's so unique. I decided to lightly distress it.
I love that this piece only has a little bit of detail. Sometimes I love a lot, but on this piece I really like that it's minimal. I'm also working on a dresser for a little girls room that I'm excited to post when it's done. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Btw this console is for sale! If you're interested in it, let me know.

Thanksgiving Buffet Decorations!

 I think this is the first year I've actually decorated for Thanksgiving! Don't ask me why. I'm glad I did though! I just made a quick burlap runner, printed out some letters to put in cute frames, put a glass pumpkin in a hurricane and found a cute little owl. After some blog-spiration (I made that up! With my luck someone's already made that word up though. ;) I decided I wanted a neutral colored Thanksgiving and I'm loving it!
 Why didn't I take more pictures?? I love this little owl. Found it on clearance at Kohl's. I wish I'd taken pics of our Halloween decor too. It actually looked really cute this year. Next year..
 I've also been working hard on improving my photography skills. Here are a few pics of my beautiful kiddos. I might not leave them up for long, but I'm super proud of myself for how they turned out. I love this first one of E in this amazing Oregon apple tree.
 Here's my L, isn't he sooooo handsome??? I love this face.
Another fave, love this little princess. Hope everyone's doing well! Happy Thanksgiving!!!
