REINCARNATION: Metal Shelving

Of course the more time I spend in Cincinnati the more I day dream about projects for our house in Plano. Right now my focus is on our kitchen because we need more storage and space! I love the idea of adding metal shelving to display our dishes, wine glasses, and maybe even have a bar shelf. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for metal shelving and a few amazing shelves I have my eye on!

ENTERTAINING: Setting a Place

There is nothing I love more than celebrating the ordinary… making what would be an ordinary night and turning it in to something special. Pulling out the special occasion candles or the nice china on a Wednesday night while eating pizza with your boyfriend. It just makes life more fun! I guess this is why I love any excuse to entertain company! Having a beautifully decorated table is one of the best ways to turn a dinner with friends in to a special dinner party. And besides entertaining company, simple and cost effective are two more of my favorite things! The most simple way to up the ante of your dinner is to have beautiful place settings! Here are a few great (and VERY SIMPLE) ideas for your next dinner party…

These beautiful things are just single tiles from a home improvement store! How simple and chic!
