Dorm Decor

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...It is almost time for back to school and it is time to start thinking of dorm decor. Something that shows your personality. Let's face it, there are so many things to purchase. Anytime you can find a bargain, you need to snatch it up! That's were Old Time Pottery comes in. I shopped their Bargain Blast Sale and came up with a few ideas to help you decorate your dorm room. I added a little chevron, color, and pizzazz to a otherwise dull look.

Head on over to Old Time Pottery Blog and get details of the savings and learn how to do this yourself!

Dreamingincolor Summer Mantel {Beach Dreamin}

Summer is upon us and we have decorated a few times here at the store.
One of the things I most enjoy is rearranging the store. 
Dreamingincolor has made a name for itself by having fun vignettes set up around each room.
The problem is the don't stay long before we are rearranging again!!
I am not complaining. It is a good problem to have.

We are excited to be celebrating summer. Decorating for summer is something I do all year long at my home. I use vintage suitcases and some beachy things all around. I dream of the beach all the time. I miss the salty air and even the sand that can be annoying most of the time.

Owning a store has put a little cramp in my travel plans. It is hard to leave. So not sure I will be getting to the beach this year.
That is how I came up Dreamingincolor's summer mantel.

What is so neat about this sign is what it is made of.

Painted Furniture in NYC

I recently went to NYC again. One of my favorite places to go.
This was really an impromptu trip. My daughter was accepted to an acting school there and I was there to show her how to get around the big city. Funny, she was the one showing me though!
We had a blast and got to to lots of things. Wish I could have shopped more but I did get to visit a shop in Greenwich Village.
Unfortunately, I don't remember the name. The tag said Reclaim, Recycle.
How bad could that be?
That is what I do so I was curious to see.
Painted furniture in NYC is a lot more expensive than here but I enjoyed all the eye candy.

I loved the patina on the furniture. Most had tons of distressing.
