It was a big weekend around here. Starting with...Patrick Shovlin finished the Big Reveal video of a project I finished recently. Check it out here. If you haven't seen the other videos about this project in progress, check out my YouTube channel . Stay tuned for weekly "how to" videos and design tips.
Speaking of tips... we had a scary Halloween weekend when I decided late last week to rip out the kids bathroom. Read was out of town.
Tip #1. Tell your husband before you do any major renovations. In fact, get his approval.
Tip #2. Staying downstairs and avoiding kids rooms/bathrooms (at all costs) does not solve anything. Ignorance is not bliss.
Tip #3. Cleaning out bathroom/kids' rooms can be scary and dangerous.
As I was sorting (aka throwing out everything I could get my hands on). I hear Hutson exclaim:
Mom! Here's that sandwich I have been looking for.
Tip #4. Call an exterminator.Here is the bathroom today. Some progress... not enough for Read or the twins who wander around aimlessly in middle of night looking for toilet. And, I finally decided on a tile. I'm going with the gray "hardwood" tile for the floor and a marble hex for the wall (spatter proof).
In other weekend news... we attended a Halloween party. No, that is not me. I did NOT dress us as Groot for the party. Thank you to all readers that assumed that was me. Had I dressed up as Groot, it would not have taken this much work. I practically look like this when I wake up. Nope, I dressed up as myself. Showered with make-up. No one recognized me.

We just picked up a lot of freshly lacquered pieces for The Coop (and some other cool stuff based on the size of the truck). Email us at email@example.com for pricing or an appointment to see these killer items! We are planning another BIG Sale in early December so STAY TUNED!
Yes, we could have fit an entire dinosaur in this truck...
Gorgeous faux bamboo side tables perfect for a living space or bedroom.... new lacquer in "Alabaster" and $650 for the pair.Stunning pale gray lacquered hex tables with brass Greek key inlay. These are beautiful and $800 for the pair. One of a kind!
These 40's lucite and brass dining chairs are too great not to post. They sold to a client, but I couldn't resist. They are amazing! I can't wait to show you the dining room they will be living in!
I love this new teal lacquer on this chest. It SOLD and will go into a living room as a TV console. Want more pieces like these? Let us know so we can be on the look out!
This white lacquered faux bamboo etagere would be the perfect addition to any space and great storage or display. We love the gold accents! $650
Vintage Mart Stam set of 4 leather and chrome chairs -- mid-century mod and perfect for a game table. Way cool.

Thibaut never disappoints...
Yes!Thibaut was so inviting I had to try out the sofa ... (aka rest)
Hooper nearly fainted when she walked into this one!
This showroom spoke to both of us... the mid century vibe is still on trend and so pretty...
Being inspired is the best part of market and I love the ribbon running through these chairs...
All in all it was a great trip and we scored lots of goodies. These might show up at the COOP!
Bye, bye birdie,

She probably thinks I'm going to post a market recap but I just couldn't resist.Her mom sent me some pictures and I love this one of Ann and her siblings... I'm sure her sister, Beth will read this (Beth- don't be mad).
