Moorish style? and also sharing my simple Fall mantel. So the story goes something like this.
When I brought my new coffee table home,
Mike exclaimed the style to be Moorish.
Me, the decorator, creative one, said
"What is that"?
duh, we have splashes of it here and there, so I should know.
I just always refer to everything as eclectic.
Let me show you Moorish style first.
Ok, so before you fall over when I am about to tell you how much I paid for this, please keep in mind, we did NOT need a new coffee table.
Ok, you get the drift of Moorish style now.
No doubt we have some of these elements in our home.
I just loved my new coffee table and for $35.00, it was coming home with me.
There was one slight problem though. The top was shiny, although distressed and a tad chippy, it was still shiny. Shiny and boys do not mix. So what was I to do?
I will take a heavy grip sandpaper and rough it up.
Rough it up real good, and then throw three coats of satin poly on it.
So, that is what I did......
Now, no worries.
I may as well show you the mantel while I am at it...
Notice the cute burlap pumpkin bag? That was sent to the boys from my dear blogging friend Pat,
so very thoughtful. They can certainly filler up with all the candy they got this year! I have been raiding their reese cups!
YUM, my favorite.
Just a touch of Fall, pumpkins, acorns, and my wood pallet sign.
Note, I moved the clock over, NOTE, Mike not happy!
Thanks for stopping by for your sweet visits.
Have a great day!
