A Waterfront Home on the Thames? Yes, Please!

I was recently browsing the real estate listings of Savills, the well known real estate agency in England.  I found myself dreaming of owning a home right on the Thames. Take a look at my three favorites and tell me what you think!


The first property I want to show you is called Hampton House, in London, available from Savills in Chiswick:


















The second property is called Hampton Court East in Molesey, Surrey.  This one reminds me of Mr. Darcy's estate - I would feel just like Elizabeth Bennett living here:














Lastly, I'm drooling over Goring-on-Thames, in  Oxforshire, with its indoor pool and tennis courts:

$19 Table Makeovers with Spray Paint and Rub 'n Buff

I used to have a long console table behind my sofa, but when we put a big tv over the fireplace, we needed to move the sofa back. It worked out well in a lot of ways, including making the room feel larger.  But I needed tables for the existing lamps. So, I went to Home Goods and scored these lovelies for $19 each. Of course I never took a before photo - here is the best I have:




The problem - they were bright red.  Not my thing.

So, I sprayed them black and they lived happily for a while.  But then I remembered what a little tube of Rub 'n Buff can do.


I spent 5 minutes and $3 today, and here are my "new" end tables:








I can see I missed a little at the bottom:


But I love how they go with the table in the background:

50 Favorites for Friday (#37)

As always, I had a ton of favorites this week, and here are my top 50.  But the first one, by Matthew Leverone, especially captivated me- I love this room:

Here are some of my favorite products today, some from One King's Lane, some from my store (click any product to go to it).  I have the lanterns hanging over the island in my kitchen - so many people have asked about them - I originally got them at Home Goods but that was a long time ago. Here's your chance if you are looking for them. I'm so happy to be able to tell you where to get them finally  :)














This one makes me the most excited, because I can talk about price guarantees in my store all day, but seeing it in action is what really matters.  Here, for example, is a light a client wanted me to buy her from Ballard Designs for $250.  The same exact light is in my store for $178!!!  (In case you want to look it up, the Ballard one is called the "Olivia" and mine is the Rondo):
