Helloooo lovelies. I went on the hunt for a few new blogs to love recently and came across Stephanie's blog Under The Table And Dreaming. I found tons of ideas from her and her talented readers who submit projects of their own regularly. I mean I've seen everything from an armoire turned baby changing station to free printables to recreate the beautiful collage she has hanging in her kitchen.

You can find the complete post including free printables HERE. Along with tons of other crafty ideas on her blog.

I've been having quite a difficult time figuring out what to do with our kitchen walls which recently turned into this disaster.

Nevermind the dishes and misc. items, the real problem here are all the holes in the walls that I've patched. So I'm hoping I can make some new ideas I've seen come to life and share a second reveal of the kitchen with you all soon. There are a few new features you may already notice. ;)

As excited as I was to simply find new ideas on Stephanie's blog I also entered myself into a giveaway for a $25 gift certificate to The Pleated Poppy and WON!

The tough fun part is deciding what I want to use that gift certificate toward!


A big THANK YOU to Stephanie and The Pleated Poppy for such a darling surprise!

What would you ladies choose??? And, any ideas for my now bare kitchen walls???


  1. Oh lucky you! Don't you just love winning things?! Thanks for sharing her blog.


  2. Hello Amanda! Did you find Stephanie's website through my post about redoing my kitchen? don't you just love her blog! anyways I was glad to see that you were also inspired by here and I can't wait to see the final picks of your kitchen!


  3. Hey Amanda! It's Ashley from Edge Designs. I too get super excited about finding new great blogs! Anyways, Mason and Maggie are my little loves. Mason is 2.5 and Maggie is 6 weeks. I LOVE those names as well. Funny thing, my favorite doll when I was little was Amanda...odd. Anyways, Im soo excited that you like my blog :-) I do have a LOT of fun things/projects Im going to blog about soon (my husband thinks Im nuts! haha, maybe he is right). To give you an insiders scoop (haha) I just picked up an old door from a home built in the 1920s...it has a skeleton key door knob. Oh do I love those. I am really excited to get started on it...Oh and looking forward to reading your blog too! Hope you have a great day!
