We all know I love a good table decoration so with company on the way for Easter I wanted to throw together a new centerpiece. While I was running around buying all sorts of tulips, eggs and quiche making goods for brunch, I snagged some wheat grass at Whole Foods. It took about 10 minutes to throw a little centerpiece together and total cost was $5 so you know I had to share…..
What To Do :
1. Grab any bowl or basket.
2. Line with wax paper.
3. Pull wheat grass apart as you push it down on the wax paper.
For the holiday, we laid a couple of our decorated eggs in the grass. Since we don’t need those smelling up the place, they’ve already bit the dust and Cuties have taken their place. Gotta’ love how easy that is!
I have been working on updating some of the prints in our house and it’s been so much harder then I thought it would be. Not for a lack of art but because there are so many amazing artists out there. As I keep searching, I thought I would share a few of my top contenders.
1. Compass – There’s something about a good arrow print. This would be so strong in my living room.
2. Seattle Space Needle Flare – Gotta’ rep the home town!
3. Family Canvas – I love that this is totally customizable.
4.You’re The Best And The Mostest – Just too good for a kids room.
5.For Like Ever – I know this print is everywhere but for good reason. This would kill in our bedroom.
6. Stay Humble St – Once we have a desk area, this is the first thing going up.
7.Tapestry 5 – Something about this just calls to me. If only that rug were real.
There are just so many good options! My first priority is a fairly large print in my living room but I haven’t committed to a color scheme. Here’s to a lazy weekend with time to make decisions!
In our last house, we used an ottoman where a coffee table would have been and an eight foot kitchen island instead of a proper dining table. So when the prospect of moving came up, I got a little giddy thinking about styling tables. Maybe that’s weird. I don’t know. But every time I would go to a friends house and their table had just the right feel, I was a tiny bit jealous.
We needed an odd sized table for our space so Kyle built our coffee table using Thimble & Cloth’s DIY with few of our own personal touches. We used 14″ hairpin legs and distressed the wood to help it fit in with our modern farmhouse angle. Then it was my turn to decorate it.
With a two year old running around, you can’t go too crazy but I think we got the job done. I found the basket at a local antique shop and threw the rest together with a few things I had around the house plus one or two new items.
Now the fun part! I want to see your coffee table action. Follow the #showmeyourtable on Instagram and add your photos in. I’ll be posting my table styling and want to see what you have going on as well.
So, c’mon …#showmeyourtable.

This past week has been dedicated to making my living room a more livable space. When we first moved in, furniture was on the back burner and structure was at the forefront. Five months later, structure is pretty well laid out and it’s time to focus on what the place looks like. From the beginning, I have kept a Pinterest board for inspiration. It ended up very white (bye bye old brown house), open and with lots of natural accents. Not every detail of my board has come to life (because hellooo it’s Pinterest) but some things are starting to take shape. More on the house later but I wanted to share some of what I’m thinking about as I have been working on the living space this week.
Thoughts on these?
