Bethenny Frankel Turquoise Bead Necklace

Currently coveting Bethenny Frankel's turquoise necklace. Pic below from Bethenny Getting Married? I must have one. Oh, I must have one in my budget to be exact. So, I am picking up some turquoise beads at the Bead Maven, and 6 silver ones too, and stringing it all on a silver chain with 3 silver beads at each end. I can't wait. I think I might wear it with everything.

Farmhouse Table to Stylish Desk

My white pleather wrapped desk, after. And, yes I love the view outside my window.

The Farmhouse top before. Still useable if I change my mind.

So, I have an old farmhouse table, circa 1980's. Yes, I have been carting it around that long, move after move. Now, here in the southwest, ie. New Mexico, many put these on their back portal (porch, lani), you name it. However, I have wicked spiders, and the Hubs likes to hose the portal (ours is huge) off and leave standing water, so not very effective for us. However, I do have 3 tables and 2 loungers, and a cooking area, (I said it was huge). So I have been using this farm table as a desk for many years. I like the large work surface 48"x30", but I hate the look for a desk, great table not a desk. So I decided to cover it with pleather. You know that stuff that looks and feels like leather, but easily washable. Well, I went white. I love it. I should have taken better before pics, I just have one of the underside of the wood. But, anyway, I digress, I just stretched the pleather over the table, and stapled. Loves it, as they say. Any projects you are working on?

Boudoir Chairs

I have 2 old Boudoir Chairs, in need of reupholstering. I will spare you the before pics at this time, as I haven't even picked the fabric. I am just now looking for ideas. This great chair is amazing. It gives me tons of ideas. I love the extra back pillow, as well as the overstuffed seat pillow. Ideas, Ideas, Ideas. What are you redecorating?
