We celebrated a 6th birthday for the second time this week. The Mr. Peabody and Sherman movie is a BIG HIT around here and so it was a fun theme to put together.
We even had an appearance by Mr. Peabody! So thankful my two year old loves dressing up!

Did I miss anything?
Finished up the first of three costumes yesterday. It’s a HOOT! haha!
Here’s my DIY Hedwig the Owl from Harry Potter costume. He <3 ‘s it!
FALL ORDERS for Charming-Ollie accepted this FRIDAY – August 1st….
Wow…. Yes – it IS that time again… I can almost smell the pumpkin pie <3
I have added a TON of fabric combos for you to choose from this time.
Yes, I am (still) obsessed with this painted, distressed, glazed furniture stuff…
A while back I got an antique chest and loved how it turned out after working my magic. There was a tall chest in my little man’s room that hubs built for the first little man nursery. I wanted to paint it to match the antique one and wouldn’t you know – I had 4 casters left over from a project we didn’t get to… A little painted and industrial <3!
Here are a few instagram pics for you:
Our little guy is thrilled with the update and Momma is thrilled with the matching furniture!
Don’t you just love seeded glass? I do too!
I loved the China Cabinet my hubby built so much that I begged for an entertainment center to match!
We used seeded glass everywhere except for the top two doors. We wanted those to be clear so that I could display some pretties.
As you can see, I am still obsessed with this painted, distressed & glazed furniture. I’m sure the hubs like help with the “finishing the piece” work I can help with too. It was kind of hard to see how much distressing was happening with the yellow color and the color of the wood but I wanted this piece to be more distressed than the china cabinet. I wanted the darker wood spots to show through and match the dark wood of our kitchen cabinets since our kitchen is open/connected with our breakfast area and living room.
The TV is still hanging on the wall and I can turn it towards the kitchen sink if I want but I love that the wires are hidden now.
It’s hard to capture the color perfectly but this is very similar to the Annie Sloan Arles color that we used on the chairs in the dining room and also at the breakfast table. Yellow furniture is so pretty paired with a gray wall!
We have this Yellow, Gray and Robin’s Egg/minty blue thing going on in there. The bottom of the breakfast table and the not so antique door pantry surround are the same Robin’s Egg Blue. The yellow of the entertainment center matches with the breakfast table chairs. The comfy pillows and other details tie all the colors in together. Most importantly – it feels like home!
