My Thanksgiving Tablescape

I had so much fun decorating for Fall and Thanksgiving this  year. It’s like playing for me! Before you see my pictures you should know that my least favorite color EVER is orange. It’s just not my favorite. But, I do think an orange tree in the fall is amazing and orange pumpkins are organically beautiful. I could have done white pumpkins, but I thought that was getting a bit overplayed so I went old school.

What is such a blessing this year is that on Thanksgiving I will have my best friend, Rachel, here from Colorado. We have known each other since pre-school and have walked through every broken road and every happy event together. I am feeling so blessed to be sharing my Thanksgiving with her.

Back to my decor…

My table is a variety of orange hues and texture, including brass, copper, gold mercury, wood twigs, orangey everything, yellow wheat and off white candles and old books. I pulled pieces from all over my house and my decor closet where I keep a stash of fun stuff. The cute fabric pumpkins came from Target. Yeah, Target! They are doing good things over there.

Here’s my table scape.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So much fun. And I actually like the orange. Here is a little picture of my Holly Golightly Halloween costume complete with Cat. I’m pretty sure I’ll be the same thing next year 🙂

White-Washing Tutorial on a FLAT surface now on YouTube

Hey!

Some of you mentioned that you could not see the video I posted last week of my personal update. Others were able to see it. I post all these on YouTube so you can just go to my channel or plug in Blue Egg Brown Nest on YouTube to see!

My White-Washing Tutorial is now up and what makes it a big different than my Weathered Wood Tutorial is that I did this technique on a flat, wood surface and it does work if you play with the paint. Originally, I thought you could only do the white-washed look w/ a textured wood like oak so that the paint would seep into the crevices and sit on the higher parts. I wanted to try the look on a smooth surface as I’ve shown here.

PS, the video is not edited and I showed most of my process so it’s a bit long FYI.

Here are some stills of the same transformation…

 

 

Hi Y’all!

Ohhhhhhhhhh, Dear Friends! It’s been forever and I miss our connection! Here’s a lil or long video update on me. I’ve been thinking of you all for some time and where I fit in with the entire modern farmhouse craze we have going on. I am never one to love the mainstream. I want to be off-stream; alternative stream. Always have. I get inspired by looking at things in a new light and then sharing what I’ve learned. In the meantime, I am praying, meditating, therapy-ing, friending, parenting, truth-telling and listening to a ton of podcasts to fill my soul and add perspective and a sense of openness to my world.

Love to you all! PS – I will be posting a new video of my round table that I white-washed this weekend. I still love a good transformation!
