5 Years, a Pineapple, & a Giveaway!

September 15, 2015 | blogging, Decor, DIY

5 years ago today I wrote this little blog post about how I was going to push myself out of my comfort zone and put myself out there even if I was just talking to myself.  Somehow, along the way, something pretty magical happened and I’m not just talking to myself or my family.  I can’t thank you guys enough for coming back week after week, checking out my flips, my projects, and my random tangents!

To commemorate 5 Years of Serendipity (pun intended), one of you guys is getting a present!

Everyone needs a pineapple.  Have you noticed they’re kind of a thing these days?  Pineapples are the new foxes.

So when I saw this little gem at the thrift store, I couldn’t pass it up!  This petite pineapple bowl is the perfect size for your keys in your entryway, your jewelry on your nightstand, or just a pretty little catch-all.

Naturally it needed a bit of pizzazz, though.  It was cute to start, but everything could use a pop of color and a bit of shimmer, no?

With a little bit of frog tape, spray paint, and liquid gold leaf, now one of you will have a very fancy pineapple.

  1. I’m so glad you broke out of your comfort zone. I’ve been following along since you made the kitchen island from the chest of drawers for Frankie. You have been a wonderful source of information and inspiration as we’ve worked on our home in that time. Congratulations to you on five years! Here’s to many more.

    PS: Did I mention that pineapple is my favourite fruit?
