A Little of This & A Little of That

Hope you all had a great weekend! I have been MIA for a few days because I had a list of to-do's.  But I'm back and wanted to share a bit of random happenings in the Matias household from this past weekend.

1. I wanted to share with you a great GoodWill find.

I only paid 2 bucks for this cafe chair! Over at Crate&Barrel, it's twin is going for a whole lot more. I love the caining seat and the high gloss black paint.  Its new home is in our guest bathroom with white towels stacked on top.

2.  Our English Bulldog, Nixon desperately needed a bath! This is not an easy task. She is 70 lbs of dead weight!

This is her after her bath. Just look how excited she looks, haaahha.

3. Last but not least, my most exciting part of the weekend was....drum roll please! We got a new dining table! Of course I found it on Craigslist for a steal.  The lady didn't know she was getting rid of an antique. Oh well for her, it's mine now (can you hear my deviant laugh?)
I have been revamping our kitchen for awhile now, starting with painting it a few months back. I am also adding a gallery wall that isn't quite done yet.  Here are two sneak peak pics on the kitchen transformation.

Gallery in Progress

Have a great week everyone!


  1. I almost bought a table with the same legs on Craig's List this weekend! I have absolutely no place for a dining room table, so I passed it up. But I was tempted!

  2. Oh, can't wait to see!!! Take care, Caroline

  3. Love the look on Nixon and that peek of legs too on your great find!

  4. I'm so glad you showed off off the legs and feet of your new table. And my goodness, that gallery wall is looking good, good, good. Patiently waiting for the reveal!

  5. I forgot to say that I can just picture how fabulous your chair looks with towels stacked on top. Black and white is the perfect combo -- especially when combined with a natural element like the caning.

  6. I cant believe how cute Nixon looks! ohh the chair looks fabulous too :)

  7. I'm just catching up on a backlog of must-read posts, and I'm SO jealous of your finds, Heather. You've done it again!

    The people at Goodwill must know you by name by now, right?

  8. Love that cafe chair! Great score for $2!
