Mod Mix Monday #65

More Vintage than Mod
I fell in love with this room when I found it on Pinterest quite sometime ago.
I love all the white with touches of turquoise and green.
That sofa looks like you could sleep all day on it.
Love the mirror over the fireplace too.
OR maybe it's just that gorgeous cat I like.
He goes with the sofa and fireplace so perfectly.

Today I did something new in my dining room that I love.
I'll show on Tuesday.
I love it when you take something that's been around the house forever and use
it in a new way. Don't you?

I know it's called "Shopping the House" and I do it all the time but this is a big thing
combined with my new shutters...it's really added to the dining room.

Last week was a great week on Mod Mix Monday....here we go...
Look at Judy's of In His Grip lush green backyard! She created a special place for herself 
on her tiny patio by painting furniture she already had pink. 
The pink looks so pretty with the green in the cushions and the green of the grass.
Melissa of Shabby Love was inspired by a pin she saw on Pinterest. 
She already had the doors and got her hubby to work on it.
He had this built in less than hour!
Now she has a pretty little shabby space right off her patio for shade and decoration.
Isn't this a great idea?
I couldn't resist to share Lynda's pretty little bottle brush trees.
Lynda of Something Created Everyday found these when out thrifting.
Who can resist bottle brush trees...even in August?
Diane of Design Till It Shines has two of these chairs! Can you believe it?
The other one is turquoise. Such retro fun. I wonder how one of these would look in my living room?
Something like this really gets you thinking outside the box.
Pamela of From My Front Porch to Yours painted this french hutch.
First, I would have never left those doors unpainted and that really is what makes it so great!
I love the way she has styled this too.
The before was so ordinary and the after is such a knock out!

Let's do it again this week.

Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...

I would have never thought to paint the patio furniture pink and yet I love it.
If Diane has TWO chairs, she should give me one! I love them!
Great picks as always!

Totally disagreeing with you on the "artist" theory over at MFAMB whereas she "claims" to be an artist. The little girl she highlighted can paint whereas MFAMB just scribbles. If I wrote this on her website she just changes my wording saying how great she is instead of the truth of how badly she paints.

Shannon Fox said...

Hi Nita! I think the room is divine, but that cat takes it over the top. LOL! Pam's china cabinet came out super dreamy.

Love the shutter and think they would look fabulous done up like my counters. Would love to see that color on them :)
