Updating An Ugly Thrifted Hexagon Mirror

Updating An Ugly Thrifted Hexagon Mirror

Right around the time that I was hunting down a piece of vintage furniture for this painting project, I happened upon a beat up old mirror at the thrift store. It was listed for $8.95, which, frankly, I thought seemed a little high, but I loved the shape and the gold frame was intriguing to me, too, so I grabbed it on a whim as I headed toward the register. As soon as I lifted the mirror and started my trek to the front of the store, though, I could tell that the frame wasn’t solid. I was kind of rushing to the cash register to beat an onslaught of other thrift-hardy women laden down with treasures, so, in the end, I decided to push on with the mirror in hand.

After getting the piece home later that afternoon, I happened to post a sneak peek of the piece on Instagram Stories, asking for suggestions on what to do. I briefly explained the situation, remarking about the cheap frame, and my fellow blogger pal Jenni, of I Spy DIY, DMed me a fabulous idea—get rid of the frame altogether! I think I had been so fixated on the idea that I needed to make the frame work somehow (probably with paint), that it hadn’t even occurred to me to just ditch it.

I gave the frame a few experimental tugs, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was nothing but hollow plastic. It came off in my hands with little to no effort, and I was soon able to lift the hexagon mirror out of the grooves in the splintered particle board and plastic.

After that, I used a sharp razor blade to scrape off the bits of glue around the edges, as well as a couple of other caked-on areas of dirt and grime. Then, finally, I hung it up on the wall in our family room using a handful of plastic screw-in clips. A quick once-over with glass cleaner left the mirror glistening, and it was ready for close-ups once more.

The outer corners of my new-to-me hexagon mirror aren’t perfect, but I really don’t mind those slightly antiqued black edges. It just goes a little further to accentuate the fact that the piece is vintage rather than brand new. I hope you guys like how it turned out, and a BIG thanks to Jenni for the inspiration! I consider this one a good team effort.

See My Interview In The Financial Diet Book!

I’ve been champing at the bit to share a really, really big piece of business news with everyone, and today is officially the day to spill the beans. If you’re a newsletter subscriber (sign up here if you’re not!), than you already know the news, but I wanted to pop on and shout it from the rooftops right here on the blog, too, just in case it’s something you missed.

Without further ado…I’m featured as an expert in the brand new book from The Financial Diet! I still remember the day back in June of 2016 when I received the invitation from Chelsea Fagan and Lauren Ver Hage to be part of their book. I couldn’t respond “Yes!” fast enough, and, nearly two years later, the book has finally arrived.

See My Interview In The Financial Diet Book!

Just as you’d expect from the TFD brand, their book is full of easy to follow financial advice. You’ll hear Chelsea’s personal story all about where she started on her money journey (spoiler alert: it’s a humble beginning!), plus find out what has helped her turn things around.

Of course, you’ll also find tons of expert interviews in the book from leading names in all sorts of areas—from fashion and traditional financial planning, to home décor (from yours truly!). Here’s just a little taste of what you’ll get out of your read:

  1. How to get good with money in the span of just one year.
  2. How to talk with your friends about money.
  3. The best way to make a budget and stick with it
  4. Budget-friendly home maintenance and décor tips.
  5. What it means to invest and how to do it.

See My Interview In The Financial Diet Book!

Grab your copy of The Financial Diet: A Total Beginner’s Guide To Getting Good With Money here, and be sure to share the news with your fellow financially illiterate pals. Trust me—I wouldn’t recommend this book unless it was really as good as it sounds. Personal feature aside, the book is filled with great tips that you can start implementing right away. It’s never too late to get better at managing your money, and this book will definitely show you how in language you’ll understand.

Speaking of, consider this your warning that the book is a little PG-13 in terms of language. The tone is totally casual and like you’re talking to a friend, but that includes curse words and all. Word to the wise in case colorful language puts you off!

See My Interview In The Financial Diet Book!

As always, thanks for following along, and for celebrating this exciting news with me. I couldn’t be more grateful to Chelsea and Lauren for valuing my words and perspective enough to put them in print. Money is something that I’ve always felt pretty comfortable talking about, and I hope that the book helps get you to that place this year, too. Happy reading!

DIY Look-A-Like Designer Striped Felt Tote

I’ve tried to make it a point to get out and about more often this year, so most weekdays you’ll find me spending time at the clay studio, enjoying a coffee at The Farmhaus here in town, or wandering thrift stores (mostly) just for fun. With all this extra time spent out in public, I’ve had to ditch my daily outfit of yoga pants and a graphic tee. Instead, I put a little more thought and effort into my outfits, which almost always includes jeans and a tucked-in button-up collared shirt.

Where I like to get a little bold, though, is with my accessories. I have a half dozen chain necklaces that I like to reach for depending on my mood, and I find myself changing out my tote bag or purse quite often, too. Just the other day I added a newbie to my collection, and it’s actually a DIY project that you can do at home with just a few key Oriental Trading craft supplies. Click the link to see my tutorial for this DIY Look-A-Like Designer Striped Felt Tote, and scroll on to find out from where I got my inspiration.

It all started with that ultra pretty (but ultra pricey!) bag from Kate Spade. I happened to spot it on a fashion blog that I used to follow, and remember thinking, “I could totally make something like that!” Turns out that I could, and you can learn how to make your own for right around $16 here. Now, tell me: what color stripes would you do?

How To Mount A Floating Wall Shelf

How To Mount A Floating Wall Shelf

Happy President’s Day! This holiday isn’t typically one I celebrate in a big way (and one I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned here on the blog), but it seemed fitting to point out the date since today’s project centers on a particular past president of ours: Thomas Jefferson.

You see, my dad actually works at Jefferson’s Poplar Forest estate here in Virginia as a woodworker and also as a restorer. He’s currently helping the team replace the entire ceiling, and it’s so incredible to hear how he and the other workers are bringing the house back to life. If I’m not mistaken, they’ve hired an English professional plasterer who flies back and forth to oversee the finish work. I love asking Dad for updates because he always has cool stories to tell and beautiful photos to share of the process.

Anyway, another part of his role at Poplar Forest is supplying the gift shop with handmade boxes made from historic wood taken right from the property. We’re talking really old stuff, but apparently there’s quite a bit of it to be had.

Last year I was wandering through Dad’s shop when I happened to spot a gorgeous piece of reclaimed wood leaning against his table saw. I asked him about it, and he said it was actually destined for the firewood pile because it wasn’t suitable for his boxes. You better believe I scooped that thing up lightening fast and had it tucked away in the trunk of my car before he could protest.

My dream since first laying eyes on the piece of wood was to turn it into a floating wall shelf, but months and months passed before I actually got down to work on it. That moment ended up finding its way into my schedule over the holidays when I had a little extra downtime on my hands.

How To Mount A Floating Wall Shelf

In the end, I decided to order a custom wall bracket so that I could get an ultra seamless look. Since the reclaimed wood is admittedly a little rustic for my taste, I decided that a floating silhouette would make it feel a little more modern. Happily, it came together just like I pictured, as you can see in today’s post.

To prep the piece of wood to slip over the wall bracket I ordered from Shelfolgy (this post isn’t sponsored, by the way), I brought the wood back over to my dad’s shop. First, we used his table saw to cut the back side down to a smooth finish. After that we traced the shape of the bracket onto the back of the wood, and used a router to make room for the bracket to sit a little inside the wood for an extra seamless look.

How To Mount A Floating Wall Shelf

We measured the placement of the metal rods, marked, and drilled them out of the backside of the wood shelf, and then it was finally time to test our (or really, my dad’s) handiwork. I found the studs on the wall, drilled my holes, and then used screws to install the bracket. All I had left to do was slip the wood shelf over the bracket and step back to survey the results.

And what mighty fine “results” they were! As you may have picked up, I rarely keep art in the same spots on our walls, so I’m really into the idea of leaning pieces on this new-to-me shelf instead of hammering more nails into the drywall. For now I have a favorite vintage portrait leaning in place on the shelf, but who knows what’ll end up there in the next few months.

How To Mount A Floating Wall Shelf

My favorite thing, of course, is the history behind the piece. I love that you can see the ancient nail holes, and where the piece of wood was roughly hand-planed. It has so much character that other types of wood just don’t have. The shelf is practically a piece of art all on its own, and I’m always leaning in close to see what new details I can find.

I’m also really into the fact that this rustic shelf is a little unexpected when it comes to our mostly-modern aesthetic at home. I think it’s good to step out of the décor box every now and then, and try a look that’s a little beyond our comfort zone. What do you think? Is this type of farmhouse style too far-fetched in our mid-century home? Leave your thoughts and reactions below, and, in the meantime, I hope you have a wonderful President’s Day holiday. Do something historic today!

What We’re Watching On Netflix

What We're Watching On Netflix

Maybe it shouldn’t be, but our nightly Netflix viewing is something I tend to look forward to all day long. I’ve unofficially decided that 2018 is the year I stop apologizing or feeling embarrassed about the way I am, so I thought I’d fully embrace our homebody natural today with a chat all about what we’re watching on TV these days!

Truth be told, we’ve actually taken a tiny break from Netflix in order to focus on the Olympics. We temporarily upgraded our Hulu account to their “Live” version, which allows us to tune into a full lineup of network channels, including NBC’s coverage of the games. So, right around 7:30pm, you’ll find John and I (and the pets) cuddled up in the family room cheering on Team USA. The winter Olympics might just be our favorite of the two types, and it has been so much fun to pretend like we’re expert commentators while watching figure skating, snowboarding, skiing—you name it, we love it.

In case you’re wondering what we’re watching whenever we find ourselves needing a little break from the competition, or if you want to add something new to your own queue, scroll on for the full list.

What We're Watching On Netflix

What We’re Watching On Netflix

  • Cheers and Frasier: These two are on the same playing field in terms of 1980s/90s nostalgia. We press “play” on an episode whenever we need a little happy escape from reality alongside this great cast of semi-combined characters.
  • The West Wing: This is my favorite show of all time. I’m currently wrapping up my most recent binge watch, and won’t be surprised one bit to find myself starting it right over again when I’m done.
  • Apollo 13: Such a classic. John’s not a fan of this movie (I can’t imagine why—truly), so I love watching it after he goes to bed.
  • Zootopia: I went into this movie with low expectations, but it’s actually hilarious! We’ve watched it two or three times and always end up laughing uncontrollably.
  • Moana: The animation is beautiful, the storyline is super empowering, and I end up bawling at the ending—every.single.time.
  • Planet Earth: John motored through this series while he was down for the count with the flu, and loved it.
  • The Crown: If you haven’t jumped on The Crown’s bandwagon, consider today’s post your challenge to hop to it! It’s beautifully shot and the casting is impeccable. I’m desperate for more.
  • Barefoot in the Park: It doesn’t get much better than Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. Watch for tons of retro home design inspiration, and to “ohh” and “ahh” over Jane’s gorgeous, gorgeous wardrobe.
  • Trolls: Both the movie and their new series! We can’t help bobbing our heads to the music, and the bright, bold colors are dazzling—no matter how many times we rewatch it.
  • Lord of the Rings: I could watch this epic movie over and over and over again. I wish Netflix had the full collection of movies available to watch, but maybe they’ll add to the mix come spring.

What We're Watching On Netflix

What We're Watching On Netflix

What are you watching on TV right now? We have a subscription to Netflix, Amazon Video, and Hulu, but I’m always curious to know if we’re missing out on something with our current go-to lineup. Our “thing” is definitely tuning in to a good movie or TV show in the evenings, so I’d love for you to share what you’re loving in case we feel the urge to break out of our box!

Meet The Only Houseplant I Can Keep Alive

Meet The Only Houseplant I Can Keep Alive

All I can say right now is this: thank goodness for believable fake plants! Despite my best laid plans for a home filled to the brim with flowing, trailing greenery, I completely missed out on the green thumb gene. In fact, over the weekend I spent a full hour dumping and bagging up all of the dead houseplants that had started to rot in our sunroom. It’s only by a solid miracle that our fiddle leaf fig tree is still going strong in the living room, although I think our big floor-to-ceiling windows deserve all the real credit.

So, what’s the only houseplant I actually can keep alive? Turns out that potted philodendron plants are the one secret weapon I can successfully keep up my sleeve. I’ve got two downstairs in our family room and one in our bedroom, and both seem to be thriving, even in the ultra low light these two particular rooms see day after day.

Meet The Only Houseplant I Can Keep Alive

Meet The Only Houseplant I Can Keep Alive

You can see in the photos here today just how long that one has grown over the years. It now trails all the way to the floor and makes such a cool statement in our family room.

I think the main trick when caring for a philodendron is to water it just a little once per week—about a quarter cup for each plant. Another thing to keep in mind is patience. Whenever I bring home a philodendron from the garden center and pot it somewhere in our house, I tend to see yellowed leaves after a few days. I think this just has to do with the acclimation process, though, because the leaves always tend to grow back after a month or two of regular waterings.

While I plan to keep caring regularly for our fiddle leaf fig and small collection of philodendrons, I’ve officially given up on buying new plants. Instead, I’m investing in believable faux versions so that I can stop wasting my money but still enjoy a “green” home. Now, tell me: what’s the one houseplant that you can successfully keep alive?

12 Statement Vases For Your Entry Table

12 Statement Vases For Your Entry Table

I can’t remember if I mentioned it here on the blog yet, but I signed up for a wheel-throwing pottery class at the beginning of the new year. The class is taught by a professional potter from the area, and has been such a fun way for me to test the limits of my creativity. Once I get my finished pieces back from the studio in the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sure to share a whole lot more about the class, including what I learned and what I plan to do with my new skills. In the meantime, though, I wanted to chat about vases in general.

These statement vases that I’ve rounded up here today all have the power to add so much character and interest to your entry table or shelving. Whether you leave them to make a statement all on their own, or you fill them with flowers or pretty branches clipped from your yard, these pieces feel almost like works of art. Try anchoring either end of your own buffet or console table with a statement vase or two and a table lamp, then place a pretty tray in the center of the table to corral things like keys, coupons, and mail.

  1. Navy Ceramic Vase
  2. Smoke Glass Jug Vase
  3. Ikebana Vase
  4. Ceramic Milk Jug
  5. Ceramic Fluted Vase
  6. Ceramic bowl in white with black matte glaze
  7. Alura Vases
  8. Bloomfield Floor Vase
  9. Bud Vase Set
  10. Mid Century White Op Art Vase
  11. Botanica Patterned Vases
  12. Mercana Burton Grey Ceramic Vase

Which one is your favorite from the list above? I’m pretty partial to that tubular speckled vase, but also love the collection of bud vases from Heath Ceramics.

Oh, and while I have you, don’t forget to sign up for the Dream Green DIY newsletter! The next issue hits everyone’s inboxes tomorrow, and, like I mentioned yesterday, includes a BIG EXCITING business announcement. You can sign up to get on the newsletter email list here.

How To Hide Your TV In A Gallery Wall

How To Hide Your TV In A Gallery Wall

By now it’s probably pretty safe to assume that you’ve heard of the Samsung Frame TV. This revolutionary piece of equipment has taken the design world by storm, and for good reason. I talked about adding our own Frame TV to the house last year here in case you missed it and want more technical details, but this TV is the first of its kind to blend in completely with its surroundings thanks to the built-in art mode. With the touch of a button you can transform that tell-tale black box into a softly lit piece of digital art.

I should mention that this blog post isn’t sponsored in any way. I just wanted to share a quick updated review of the TV now that we’ve had the chance to enjoy it for seven months. If you remember, we had yet to hang the television up on the wall, so you can consider this “Phase 2” of the integration into our family room from a design standpoint, too.

How To Hide Your TV In A Gallery Wall

How To Hide Your TV In A Gallery Wall

When we first received the TV, John and I had a little trouble finding the perfect spot for it up on the wall. Until that point, we had never actually hung a television in any of our homes, so we were a little anxious about installing it somewhere in a much more permanent way. So, we started by resting the Frame on our television console in the family room using the included stand.

Fast forward six months and we were still every bit as in love with the TV as we were when we first unpacked it. The art mode is super realistic (guests love seeing it in person when they visit!), and the picture quality is so nice that we actually stopped using the projector we used to watch TVs and movies on. Every night we found ourselves gravitating toward the sectional in our family room to watch the Frame, so we ultimately decided it was time to really commit and hang the thing up on the wall once and for all.

The main issue, though, was arrangement. We couldn’t hang the TV up on the paneled wall where it sat on the console because the paneling actually sports a bank of dated mirrors that we had to cover with a vintage rug. This meant we needed to flip the entire space around, putting the sectional couch against the paneled wall, and the cabinet and TV on the blank white wall opposite.

We were unsure about how the 10-foot sectional would look against the 10-foot paneled wall, but it turns out that the end-to-end look suits the space (you can get a pretty good sense of what I mean in the second photo from the top of this post). While this meant we couldn’t use end tables, the extra large tufted ottoman does the trick of supporting our feet, water glasses, and remotes, and an inexpensive hanging pendant solved the issue of lighting.

As for the TV? It took us a few days to gather all of the correct tools (and energy) to get the thing up on the wall, but up it went and we couldn’t be more in love. The no-gap wall mount that came with the Frame allows it to sit flush against the wall, and the one thin cable is pretty discreet coming down from the TV to the power box and outlet. I situated a leafy potted plant in front of the wire to hide it a little more, and now you can barely see it.

You more observant folks might have noticed a new addition to the television itself. After about four months or so, I decided to spring for the walnut wood finish frame to customize the look of our TV, making it look even more like a real piece of art. The frame comes in four pieces and snaps magnetically right to the existing frame of the TV for a seamless finish.

How To Hide Your TV In A Gallery Wall

Now to address today’s main blog post topic: how to hide your TV in a gallery wall. This is another one of those themes that interior designers love to talk about right now, but since I’ve had the chance to try it out for myself, I’m hooked. I think the main thing to really consider here is placement, though, and it’s not something I hear often in other “How To Hide Your TV…” type posts out there.

Rather than hanging your wall-mounted TV right front and center in your gallery wall, test out a more inconspicuous spot on the wall. A giant flatscreen TV smack dab in the middle of a grouping of smaller framed pieces is going to look like, well…a giant flatscreen TV smack dab in the middle of smaller framed pieces. Instead, shift the TV off to the side and maybe a little lower than your other frames. This makes the gallery collection feel more organic without impeding your ability to watch TV.

If you’ll notice in the pictures in today’s post, we intentionally hung our TV off center on the wall so that, whether it’s in art mode or streaming live TV, it doesn’t feel like a big box next to a couple of tiny pieces of art. I think the off-kilter arrangement camouflages the real purpose of the gallery wall better. This arrangement also gave us a little more room for art off to the left since the wall space isn’t gigantic between the sliding door and window.

My suggestion (and what we did ourselves) is break out some painters tape, get acquainted with the measurements of both your art and TV, then play around with temporary squares and rectangles up on the wall. This allows you to test out different arrangements without having to rehang anything in case you don’t like the look. Place your tape, step back to consider how things look, and make sure that the grouping feels balanced. Try sitting on your couch to confirm comfortable TV-viewing, too.

Have you ever hung a TV up on the wall before? I’m dying to know how it went. And I’m also curious to know if you’ve given in to the draw of this crazy-cool TV. I couldn’t possibly recommend it enough (again, no one’s twisting my arm to say that), and I’m so excited that Samsung finally came out with a slightly smaller and more affordable option. Feel free to leave any technical questions, design thoughts, and final opinions in the comments below!

Sometimes I really resent how obsessive compulsive I am when it comes to neatness at home, and practically nowhere is that more painfully obvious than our refrigerator. I rarely (if ever) put anything on our fridge since matching our notes and photos to magnets is next to impossible. In the past, I’ve taken my obsession for an orderly fridge to a whole new level with handmade magnets to match my go-to color palette, and now I’m experimenting with a new shape and new patterns over on Oriental Trading.
