Perfect Linens Review and Coupon Code

“Life is too short for bad sheets! Do not just change your sheets… Change the way you buy your sheets.” — Perfect Linens
I have to admit that sheets are something I give very little thought to. I don't really pay attention to quality or thread count. I just buy what I need primarily based on cost alone and call it good. But then, those sheets eventually lose their shape, they pill, they scratch and are really not that comfortable so out I go to purchase another set. That way of thinking changed when I was contacted by Perfect Linens in November to review a set of their sheets. Specifically their TOASTMASTER set, which I received in January. Now I can't believe the difference a great quality set of sheets can make on a good night's sleep! Just like the company says, life is way too short for bad sheets and that is so very true!

The sheets are amazing!! They are cozy and warm and have held up so well to regular washings. No pilling, no stretched elastic. I actually look forward to climbing into bed each night. And with the weather getting warmer now, I'm considering purchasing a set of their cool sheets!
Their mission is to provide quality sheets that stand the test of time and I think they more than accomplish that!  

Here are some of the other reasons that Perfect Linens offers the best sheets on the market:
* They specialize. Other websites sell hundreds of different products. With 30 years experience supplying sheets to the biggest retailers; no one knows sheets like them. They test for the most comfortable sheets. Using instruments and analysis like Nike and NASA, they are unique with their novel emphasis on objective research.

* Sheets change with usage so they retest after multiple launderings. They evaluate how each sheet feels over it's lifetime, saving money and eliminating shopper frustration.

* They curate. Shoppers select from a curated selection of the most comfortable sheets. No more searching through hundreds of sheets on multiple websites.

* Their 45-night LOVE IT (use or abuse, they'lll accept the return) free-shipping-both-ways satisfaction guarantee.

Live Edge Spalted Maple Coffee Table

Hey friends! How does so much time slip by between my blog posts!?! I have every intention to get back to my normal once-a-week blogging routine, but it never seems to happen!
But, I'm back with something super exciting to share!!! My husband and I built a little coffee table today! It's one I have been dreaming about for a couple of years now!! I have been slowly plugging away at trying to finally get my living room finished up, and this was one of the projects on the list.
I've had a huge crush on live edge wood for awhile now and incorporated it into my house as a coffee table. I also love all things mid century modern, so we had to throw some hairpin legs in there for good measure!

I found both the live edge spalted maple wood and the hairpin legs on ebay. The wood came planed and sanded. My husband helped me attach the legs on with screws. I gave the top a couple coats of hemp oil to bring out the grain and I will be sealing it with some polycrylic to give it a little shine.  

The black lines running through the wood is the beautiful spalting!

Next on the list are a couple of new chairs for extra seating and I can call the room done!!

I am so happy to finally have this perfect table in place!

More Plant Stands

Hey guys! I'm back again with a couple more plant stands/tables/shelves. I painted them both in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint, so I thought I would just share them together. 

On this shelf, I used my new favorite paint method - dry brushing. It's so easy. One coat, no distressing, done! Love it.

I've never owned plants before so I'm pretty excited at how well I've managed to keep my little succulents alive!

And, I had to show a close up of this cute little Swedish gnome/Santa I found recently at a thrift store!! I love that he's white and wood. My favorite combo!

I love productive weekends and checking things off the list! What did you do during your long holiday weekend?

Plant Stand Makeover

Hey guys!! I'm back with another painted table! This one could also be a plant stand. I'm not entirely sure. But whatever it is, it's super cute.

I used one of my most favorite General Finishes colors on the table - Seagull gray!! It seriously is the perfect gray!

Lately, I've been liking the look of really simple distressing. Simple has been my motto these last several months, so the look is extremely appealing to me right now.  

See what I mean?!?

What kind of distressing appeals to you? Simple? Extreme? None at all? Leave me a note in the comments and let me know!

Small Painted End Table

Hey there!! I'm back after a bit of a blog break! It was nice taking a step back, but I think I'm ready to get back into the swing of blogging. After the holidays I'm hoping to be a bit more consistent!
Today, I thought I would share a little end table I painted yesterday using General Finishes Milk Paint in Linen. It's a very pretty creamy white and one of my favorite General Finishes milk paint colors.
Here's the table before:

And after:

The white is such a nice update I think.

I couldn't resist throwing a little Christmas décor in here too!

I just love the pretty curve of the legs.

I also had to share this spalted maple vase! It's my first piece of anything spalted, and I think it's so beautiful!!!

I'll be getting the rest of my Christmas décor down from the attic after Thanksgiving, so I'll be back to share more soon!

Arrows, Feathers and Living Room Sneak Peek

Hi there! I'm not doing very well getting back into the swing of blogging. There has just not been a lot going on around here. However, I did paint my living room white over my long New Year's weekend and finally got around to hanging things back up on the walls. One of those I'm sharing today!
I found this wood arrow recently at a thrift store and I thought it would look perfect paired with feathers. I whipped this little project up in less than 20 minutes! So easy!

I used a combination of feathers purchased from craft stores and ones my son finds for me outside.

I thought I would also share a little view that shows a sneak peek of our new tufted leather sofa that we purchased from and triangle shelves my husband just built for me!!!

If you want to see what my living looked like before click HERE!

Come back soon to see more of our living room, including our new rug!!

Persian Blue Chalkboard

Hey friends!!! Did you miss me?!? Do you even remember me!?! I've returned after an unintentional blog break. I don't have much to share since I haven't been painting furniture much, but over my break I did repaint my living room and buy a new tufted leather sofa! I'm hoping to post a living room update soon. 

Over the weekend I painted a swinging frame I turned into a chalkboard. I used a new (to me) color by General Finishes called Persian Blue and it's absolutely gorgeous! 

The frame was just simple and plain wood. 

After two coats of Persian Blue and some distressing, it's now stunning! 

It's good to be back! You'll be seeing more fun projects soon!!
