Copper Leaf Lamp Makeover just in time for Fall

DIY Copper Lamp Table for Fall decor living room

Hello everyone,
hope you are doing well, the weather is changing around here, it’s officially Fall; the days are shorter and cooler just the way I like them at this time of the year. I wore my Fall boots this weekend but I was probably the only one wearing them, I can’t believe some people were still wearing flip-flops when it was chilly out there. I also wanted to thank all of you for taking time to ask about Nate and me; he is doing great, unfortunately I cannot say the same for myself. I’m not ready to share just yet but your kind words mean so much to me and have helped me stay positive. It still amazes me how bloggers can be so supportive. Please know that I also appreciate you voting for my …

Living Room ready for Fall

Fall Living Room Final Reveal

Hello everyone,
How are you doing? Hope you are having a great week!
I’m glad to have finally taken the pictures of our living room and get to share them with you today. You might have noticed from my previous post that I choose to decorate it with the colors white, black, blue, gray and because Fall will soon be here I added gold and orange to the mix.
Before you start looking at the pictures I want to let you know that there …

Hello everyone,
I hope you are having a great day! I’ve been a bit busy over here trying to keep Nate occupied while taking new pictures of our living room. Yes, I will finally be sharing them with you very soon but first let me show you my new fiddle leaf fig tree that we got from IKEA back in July.
If you are a ‘Pinterest’ addict like me, you have seen her everywhere. Not only is …

Good weekend everyone,
I hope you are doing great and enjoying these sunny summer days. The weather was not great at the beginning of the week over here but Friday was beautiful, got a chance to pay a small visit to IKEA, got new lamp shades for my living room, I will share more on that later. You might remember that back in June I had a chance to guest post over at The DIY …

Fabric Covered Plywood

Good day everyone,
I’ve been wanting to share this post with you for a long time but kept hesitating. You know how much I love sharing with you big and small projects I do around the house but I didn’t think I was going to keep this big piece of plywood in my dining area. Once I decided to keep it and post about it, I kept putting it off. I’ve had this project ready since last March and because of the DITTO DIY Framed Fabric challenge, I decided to bite the bullet and share it with you. You probably even saw a glimpse of it in my Gold Leaf Elephant post pictures. Please don’t be shy, I want to know what you …

Happy Monday and Canada day too everyone!
I hope you enjoyed your weekend, we were busy Saturday and Sunday, so today we are relaxing by preparing healthy goodies in the kitchen. Because, I’ve had time to relax, I’ve had time to let my mind wonder and forgot about today’s post, so I am posting a little bit later than I usual.
Do you remember that last month I participated to a DITTO’s DIY party and I linked my gold home office accessories to the Go for the Gold challenge, it was a fun party to link up to and had the chance to see what other bloggers were …

Hello everyone,
I’m glad the weekend is here, except that once again the weather in Montreal isn’t all that great! It seems every time I want to start working on a new DIY project, mother nature throws me a curve ball to keep me inside. This weekend, I wanted to work on my son’s craft table from IKEA, I had plans to make it fun and practical for him but I guess it will have to wait until …
