How to Make Realistic DIY Berry Branches


Learn how to transform faux flowers, leaves, and berries into realistic looking branches 
to use for decorating your home.


Learn how to transform faux flowers, leaves, and berries into realistic looking branches  to use for decorating your home.  Tutorial at www.andersonandgrant.com



Last fall, I did a post on creating realistic looking stems for your faux pumpkins.  In my opinion, the stems are what can instantly give it away that you're looking at something fake.  Some people aren't bothered by this, but I am the type that likes the real thing whenever possible.  And if I can't have that, then what I'm using better be as close as possible!


Well, today I'm sharing my way of transforming some faux berry branches into something that will also look a little more real.  And this technique can be applied to fake flowers and leaves in the fall in the same way.

Finding My Style in a Simple Chair + A Giveaway


Champlain White Fusion Paint Vintage Chair {www.andersonandgrant.com}


I am seriously so excited to share this project with you today!  Over the past few months I've really tried to hone in on what my style actually is and follow my own heart and mind when designing.  In the blogging world I live in, it is some days a struggle to not be lead into doing what everyone else is doing.  This chair, as simple as it is, really is a representation of my style.

A Diamond in the Rough that Will Have to Wait



One of my blogging besties (Jamie from So Must Better with Age) and I have been talking for months about doing a collaboration together.  Since we have similar styles we thought it would be fun to each do a furniture project.  The idea eventually grew to include other bloggers and the date kept getting pushed back.  It was one of those far off in the future projects that you don't have to start working on right away because you've totally got time.

Your Turn to Shine Link Party #46





Good morning, friends!  Welcome to Your Turn to Shine.

I hope that your week has been going well.  It is so hard to believe that our next party will be in the month of September.  Schools have started (or will be starting) and the "official" summer season is coming to an end.  As much as I hate to see it go, fall brings with it all sorts of exciting activities (and great cozy layers of clothing!).  I have a long list of projects to try and tackle over the next few months and can't wait to share them with you.

Reloved Magazine



Hi guys!  I feel like it has been forever since my last post.  The past few weeks have been the type where you work and work, and then whatever your plan was doesn't turn out right.  When that happens, I've found that it is best to step back, take a deep breath, and slow down long enough to think things through.  And honestly, I'm fine with my original plans not working out on multiple fronts.  There must be a reason, right?  

I'll be taking the rest of the week to continue sketching out some new ideas and getting caught up.  The busy season of fall is just around the corner and I'd like to enter it fully prepared.  Is anyone else feeling the pull of autumn?  I'm suddenly in the mood to buy some pumpkins and start cleaning up the flower garden!

Tutorial for creating a tray using a broken wood crate and hardware cloth.


There are times when I believe fate plays perfectly into my DIY world.

When cleaning out my grandma's basement last month, my mom found an old wood crate that was missing its bottom and had a broken board.  Garbage, right?  For most people, yes.  But because she knows me so well, she asked if I wanted it. Perfectly aged wood?  Yeah!  I can use it for something!

Distressed Farmhouse Shelf




Today's post has been months in the making.  I'm sure you know what it's like to do the type of project that just seems to drag on for no real reason. It just hangs over your head being bold enough to remind you that it is still there, yet not pushing you hard enough to actually get over whatever is blocking you from completion.

Favorite Posts from July


In June, I started posting a review of the previous month's projects.  Last night I was reading this post from my friend Manda and realized that, um.....July was over.  It was time for another one of those reviews already.  I almost missed the second post in my series!  Where is this summer going?  There is still so much to do and really just one more month to get things done.  But most of me just wants to relax and enjoy the remaining warm days.  Who is with me on that plan?

I hope that the week ahead is filled with sunshine and fun for you.  Tomorrow I've got a DIY that I have been working on since before last month's review....oh my!

But for today, here is a look back through the month of July.
