New Door inserts & paint make all the difference

I feel bad even posting right now with everything else going on in the world. So i'm going to keep this post light and simple. I have always disliked our front doors.. for 4 years I have been dreaming of new doors.. Which is a long time in 'Lisa land' ;).. of course that was before I got a estimate for them.. oh my gosh it was $7000 !! I really had no idea.. I anticipated approx. a third of that. so needless to say even I can rationalize that if its not broke don't change them mentality lol.. See how we achieved a new look for under $250!!

Family Room Summer Decor

First let me say I know this post is a little late coming.. But I finally had the time to switch up some of our decor the other day so I thought I'd share it anyway..hopefully it can still provide some kind of summer decor inspiration.. Summer for me is all about the nautical coastal look with fresh tones of blues and whites and lots of natural materials.

Antique Bench makeover

I'm back! I'm so sorry, I've been M.I.A on the blog for a little over 2 months now.. I've been posting here and there on Instagram.. but honestly I have just been crazy busy with my family and kids but I'm going to try to find a better balance.. between the blog and the fam!! So today i wanted to share one of our more recent makeovers.. Our daughter is 4 now and shows a lot of interest in decorating so I got her involved in this project .. after all it is her bench! The once pastel yellow farmhouse bench sits under her bedroom window.. It was very worn yellow, painted in most likely in lead paint due to age ..so I did a little research and read as long as you don't sand it and you just cover over the lead paint, its fine.. so off to painting we went :)  ..

Florida Beach House

So remember a few weeks ago I shared our freshly painted front doors..well here is the beach house we stayed at that inspired the door paint color ;).. The beach house is located on the water in Anna Maria Island, Florida. I'm going to keep the wording to a minimum and really let the house speak for it self.. If anyone is interested in staying here message me and I will pass along contact info...
I fell in love with this door!!! SO many great antique items incorporated throughout the home.
It even came with a great little drink bar on the 3rd level ;)
But hello the best part of this home.. the VIEW!! it was insane to wake up too.. 
The floors and shiplap walls were heaven.. totally inspired me to do light flooring next time round ;)
Here is some photos of the outdoors.. just gorgeous!!
And the bonus was this fab. outdoor entertainment area.. huge hit for my hubby!
You can see another beach rental we stayed at last year HERE.

Round Kitchen Table Makeover

We recently had our antique kitchen table refinished. It is a solid walnut so I knew with some work it could be beautiful again.. the table had tons of wear and blemishes with a orangey-reddish, glossy finish.. so it was definetely time for a much needed update.. Because spare time has been hard to come by these days I hired a company to finish the table for me. Great prices, quality work. And I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! Now it flows perfect with our RH burnt oak chairs and our wooden island pendant lights.. yay!! see all the details below..

Our new Hall Tree & entry

so we finally upgraded our entry :) we have a very open designed foyer with very small amount of wall space :(.. making it quite difficult to style .. I always knew I wanted a practical spot to put the kids shoes on.. and of course a spot to place the keys and mail .. and well I finally found it!!!

Deciding on a sectional sofa for our small space

For me deciding on a NEW sofa / sectional was a very hard decision.. I obviously love the idea of sectionals as I have just realized that is all I own!!! one in our rec room, family room and now living room.. omg whats wrong with me?? lol!!  But really its because I love how many people can fit on a sectional, and the comfort.. aside from a recliner they can be the best way to put your feet up after a long day.. See how it all turns out below..
