Hello friends! It’s been so long since my last post and I have to tell ya, I’m missing ya! I’ve been babysitting, working on a few home projects, and enjoying my summer…I hope you all are enjoying yours as well!
Today I wanted to share my entry table styling and lamp mini makeover. I’ve never talked about how I put together this area so I thought I’d show you.
This is the table I have in our entry way and there is a large rectangular mirror hanging above. I painted and weathered the mirror myself from an old dresser we no longer wanted.
I love thrifting and found this cute little sign and wreath holder one day at a Goodwill store. About a year ago, I found this gorgeous cracked glass vase at Hobby Lobby that catches the sun light just right! It’s always been in my living room under a table collecting dust so I decided to move it here. I used tree branches I found bundled up on the side of the road that someone was throwing away for a filler. The Acai wood bowl was a gift basket from a previous employer that i saved over the years and just added some pretty wood chip decorative balls to fill it up and give it some height.
My lamp “before” and “after”. This turquoise lamp was about as bright as the vase and I felt like they were competing with each other. For me, it was too much turquoise. I was about to throw it out and I thought I’d try painting it first. I gave it a grey wash and then went back over it with a bit of white to give it more of a stone look. I just love how it turned out and I’m glad I didn’t get rid of it! It’s much more neutral now.
One thing I like to incorporate into my decor are things that have a story behind them or some sort of sentimental value to them.
This basket here is filled with a few of my spouses treasures…the first 2 bucks he ever shot as a teen and a rattlesnake he crossed paths with last year!
It’s fun having family & friends over and sharing stories about how we came about these things.
Here atop this vintage suitcase sits a pair of horseshoes I saved from a cousins quincenera that my baby girl got to be a part of.
Here’s the full view of the table and decor.
Hope you enjoyed checking out this little space in our home. As always, thanks for stopping by!

get the look:
*the lamp I have is a Ross store find. I wasn’t able to find anything like it. I did find this lamp here that you could paint grey to get the same mood. It’s one of those things that if you happen to see something similar at a discount store, grab it!
I’m in the process of decorating my home with Valentine’s Day decor and wanted to share my Valentine tree I have in my kitchen.
After the new year, I take all my ornaments off of my gingerbread themed tree and decorate it with Valentine ornaments. It’s a great little transition and an excuse to keep my little tree up just a bit longer!
I found my tree a few years back at Dollar General for $12.00. They still carry them so be on the look out next Christmas season. Here’s the one I bought.
Once it’s set up you can start to decorate! I made some felt hearts and re decorated some old Christmas ornaments I had.
The felt hearts are really simple to create. All you need is some felt sheets, fiber fill (stuffing), embellishments, needle and thread, or a glue gun.
1st, make a template of a heart any size you want, then trace it onto your felt sheet. You will cut two of these out (front & back pieces).
2nd, glue the edges together leaving an opening big enough for you to be able to add stuffing. If you are handy with a needle, you can sew the edges together and leave an opening.
3rd, add your stuffing and be careful to not overfill. Glue or sew your opening shut.
4th, now you can embellish them. I added an assortment of glitter, bows, and buttons to mine. Add a loop of twine or ribbon to the back for hanging or you can hang them with hooks like so.
1st, take some old ornaments (I used plastic) and paper mache small pieces of newspaper to the ornament until it is completely covered and let dry.
2nd, once dry add glitter or paint to the exterior. I brushed mine on with a light coat so the paper would show thru. Be sure to let these dry after painting.
3rd, you can start embellishing. I made some gift tags with cardstock and Valentine’s Day themed stamps. Add these to your ornaments with pretty ribbon or twine and your ornaments are ready to be hung.
These were picks I found at Dollar Tree and I just removed the stick and hot glued some hooks to the top.
Add a bow or embellishment to the top of your tree and your tree will be complete!
I’ve linked some fun options below If you’re not into DIY and you can have your tree up in no time!
I hope you have fun creating your own tree decor. Let me know if you put one up. I’d love to see it.
