I'm Julie, a feisty, but rather shy redhead from New York, who moved to the Midwest to follow my dreams (and the love of my life). I'm passionate about decorating our home with my own unique affordable DIY style which is a mix of eclectic, contemporary, traditional, with a splash of country. I don't follow the crowd, but trust my gut instead. I hope to inspire you to try some of my ideas. I also love to cook and share my easy recipes. My family begs me to make my homemade meatballs and pizza. I hope you will try them and hang out with me for a while or subscribe to my e-mail letter here:

Not Just Any Old Placemat!

It seems lately I have been doing so many personal posts followed with a few recipes…enough already Jules…time for someDECORATING!!

Woot Woot!!So…I was at Pier One Imports a couple weeks ago and I usually tend to navigate towards the clearance section at every store.Well…this wasn’t in clearance, but the price was right and I knew exactly where I could use this cool tin placemat! (note: the placemat is not fabric and is solid-click on it for details)


Pier One Imports/Hammered Metal Placemat
I have had these 4 votives that attach to the wall for years.
I bought them to put around our tub, but when we moved I decided to arrange them in a group in our bedroom.
I never felt right about them.
There was just something missing!
Do you already know where I am going with this???I knew instantly that the placemat would look perfect behind them.  I also knew my hubby would help me if I asked nicely :)
This was so darn easy.  I didn’t have to measure much because the lines on the placemat were great guides.Isn’t that a cool placemat!?
I have to tell you a quick story…I often tell my husband how sexy his hands are!I am not joking…there is something about his hands that drives me…well, to a good place!I once dated a guy and he was really cute but had awful hands.  It ruined it for me.  Isn’t that awful!

I joke about it to Rick all of the time.  If he had ugly hands we wouldn’t be married.

I can’t change who I am guys…I feel what I feel!

Okay…enough of that nonsense!

Here’s the final product!

Now you know what I mean when I say…Not just any old placemat!!The reflection it creates when lit is so much prettier!You could do this with a tray, an old board, a sign,etc. and you could also use any wall sconce (candle).

P.S. Nice hands Pop!
