Easy Wooden Painted Sign + Silhouette Promo

I’ve had this wooden painted sign for years that I found at Michael’s but it had some painted mural on it that I didn’t care for.  It was in the clearance section and even thought it was ugly, it was wood and came with a rusty ornate metal design on the bottom.

When we first moved in, I painted it blue and hand painted Est. 2009 on it for when we bought our house.

I always wanted to redo it when I got my Silhouette CAMEO so I finally got around to doing it the way I envisioned.

And at the end of this post be sure to check out the amazing promotions going on now at Silhouette!

Ballard Designs, We Go Together Like Peanut Butter and Jam

Dear Ballard Designs, this post is for you.

You don’t know me, but we really go together.  We go together like peanut butter & jam, like burgers & fries, like couches & coffee tables!

I’m so Industrial Beachy French, or French Vintage, whatever you want to call me, and every page of your catalogue is the same.  Are you copying me, Ballard?  Of course you’re not.

I just never realized how much we are made for each other.  Okay, that was a lie, I knew this deep down all along but I didn’t want to fully admit it as love can be fickle sometimes.  But I really need to tell you that I LOVE you, Ballard, I really do.

Haven + On The Back Porch with Cedarhill Farmhouse

Well, I just came back from the Haven Conference last night.  Wow, what a whirlwind!  I spent 4 glorious days in Atlanta and roomed with my BBFF again this year.

I thought that since this was my second year attending I’d be an old pro but man, I was wrong.  I was still exhausted and still over the moon to meet bloggers I only knew over blog world.

It’s really an amazing way to gain knowledge, connect, collaborate and learn a new skill.

I learned how to make a coffee table in an hour.  Wow.  You might be seeing how I make some tables on my blog real soon.

Okay,  so while I was away, my interview with Anita from Cedarhill Farmhouse went live and the wifi in the hotel was sketchy at the best of times.

Well, we’re officially having a beachy week here at So Much Better With Age!

On Monday I shared with you some beachy home decor items I recently added and today I’m sharing with you my son’s room.  I’ve never given you a tour of his room before.  I’ve been wanting to repaint his bedroom for awhile but let’s be honest, that may take forever so why not show it now?

Welcome to my Beachy Boy’s Bedroom

Getting Beachy with Kirkland’s + Giveaway

Getting Beachy with Kirkland’s

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile now, you know that I love the three design styles:  Industrial Beachy French

I did a previous post on how I like to incorporate those three elements into each room.

There’s something about each element that I just go gaga over.

Since it’s now July, I thought it was time to kick it up a notch in the beachy area.

And I found beautiful beachy products at Kirkland’s for a steal.

AND enter for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Kirland’s!
