Fiddle Leaf Fig - Not So Big? Try These Ideas


I was at a client's home the other day and she mentioned she hated her
fiddle leaf fig - what? She found it at IKEA and was excited about the $13 price tag,
but it was smaller than she was hoping for.
 She had it sitting on the floor and to be honest it did look like a mini. :)

Here are some great ideas to give one a boost until it grows up.

Style it on a table in a great pot...

I think I need a trip to IKEA or Home Depot for a new little guy.
Lots of style for only $13!

Another crazy Craigslist score!


Do you guys remember just 2 weeks ago I mentioned I was envious of
this fabulous Lutyen's garden bench we ordered for my client?

I've NEVER seen one on Craigslist, and on Sunday evening I happened to be
 looking for a bench for another client's dining room and look what I come across!!!

Seriously, C-R-A-Z-Y!!!

And, it turned out to be the most fun Craigslist pick up ever!


A darling lady was selling it, and her property was SO charming I couldn't help
 but ask if she'd give me a tour (outside) and if I could feature her on my blog.
She was so gracious and said, "Yes" to both! :)
The impeccable grounds oozed of creativity and inspiration at every turn.
 It was a delight hearing how it evolved over the years, and of the special family
celebrations she'd hosted,
I asked why she was selling the bench, and she replied,
"I'm a big Craigslister and found a new one. I sell things so I'm not a hoarder."

(Ha! I should take note!)

My bench is going to get a new paint job - I think the pretty silhouette will
show up best against our white house in glossy black.
I can't wait to get started!

So excited about this DIY!!


Hey everyone, hope you had a nice weekend!
We had a wonderful time celebrating all the awesome fathers in our family with
 brunch at my parent's. It was a 99 degree scorcher in Denver, lounging and switching
 between golf and a car auction were the activities of choice (by the men)!

Do you remember this inspiration photo for the One Room Challenge Great Room
I just completed? I mentioned how much I LOVED the $$$ Saville cabinet from
 Ebanista. I hadn't thought about it, but a few of you encouraged me to DIY one. 
Well...the perfect cabinet popped up on Craigslist!          
  

If you use your imagination you can see how I could come up with something
similar, right?   



Here are some closeups of the painted detail.
  I'm hoping I can replicate the hand painted appearance of the 22K gold they use! 




Keep your fingers crossed for me, and I'll keep you updated.
