Here is what I have been up to here at One More Time Events... although, it isn't quite officially Fall,  I did share one of my Fall projects that was kind of forced upon me when I refinished my buffet. Rather than redecorating it with the same decorations and because it was close enough to Fall, I went ahead and put some of my Fall decorations out.



and whipped up another Ice Coffee for you at "Thirsty Thursday"




Here is what Cathy's been up to at Vintage Paint and More...  Even though Cathy has been holding off doing any Fall projects, she did share a great Fall Wreath tutorial  Burlap Wreath Tutorial  and is promising to bring you more great Fall ideas soon!

Fall Preview with Buffet Makeover


Fall Preview with Buffet Makeover

After refinishing the buffet this gave me a clean slate so to speak... rather than redecorating the buffet back the way it was before,  I decided to go ahead and decorate it with some Fall pieces I recently  picked up... I tried to wait for Fall to  get a little closer, but I thought... oh heck why not...close enough... just do it!!  

Although most people, myself included stay within the traditional colors of fall, this year   I decided to go for softer tones of butternut, soft yellows, tans, green and adding pops of purple. 


Fall colors butternut, yellows, greens, Tans with a Pop of purple at One More Time Events.com
I just love these colors together!

Fall Preview with softer colors at One More Time Events.com


Recently,  I fell in love with this new stain called Driftwood made by Rust-olium.  When I discovered it I had no idea what I was going to use it on, but had to have it.  Have you ever  seen a stain or paint color and just had to have it? 

  I couldn't wait to use it!!! I actually used it on another piece (which I will share later).   After I saw what it looked like on the other piece, I couldn't wait to get busy and refinish the buffet.  

Rustic look on Buffet at One More Time Events.com

Here is what it looked like before stain was applied.

I have been wanting to lighten up the buffet for a long time now and redo the dark top along with  blending out  the chunky highlights 


Refinished Buffet at One More Time Events.com

To refinish the buffet, I used a technique called pickling.   Pickling  is very similar to white washing,  the only difference is instead of using paint, I used a light colored stain.  

Since  I had no plans of sanding or painting the top of the buffet and wanting some of the darker color to come through,  I simply just applied the stain with a sponge brush.  I didn't use a regular brush which you could do, but I didn't want the brush lines,  so by using the sponge brush it allowed me to blend,  smooth and work it down into the pores of the wood.  Normally I would use a clean rag to wipe away the excess, but by using the sponge brush there was  no need to wipe it at all.

Fall Centerpiece at One More Time Events.com

The buffet was chalk painted a while back,  but like I mentioned I really didn't care for the chunky highlights, to me it gave more of a rustic look which I like, but on the right pieces. I did the same technique on the buffet itself as I did on the top.

Pickling with stain at One More Time Events.com

I love the new look of the buffet and how it gives  off a brighter, softer look with a touch of elegance to go along with the mirror above it 


Decorating Fall on Buffet at One More Time Events.com

I love the new look of the the buffet.  I don't know why I didn't do it sooner.    What I really love most  is how these softer colors of Fall look on it.    

What colors do you use when decorating for Fall?   Do you stay with the traditional colors?  Or do you go with the natural colors of Fall?

Centerpiece using Natural Elements


Centerpiece using Natural Elements 


Hi Everyone, I'm  back to share another centerpieces using recycled glass 

Using natural elements and glass vases to create a centerpiece is one of my favorite things to do.  It's free,  its fast and it's  easy.  In my opinion there is nothing like a beautiful green bouquet of naturals arranged in clear glass vases.  Something about it just gives off a crisp, clean, and adds natural beauty to any space.










To see how easy this is  done pop over to Fine Craft Guild for a full tutorial on how you can bring the outside in.

Sometimes just a few pieces from the yard can lend you more than you think.  You love them in your yard, why not enjoy some of it  inside!

If you enjoyed this post and would like to see more like it… I would love it if you followed along!

Ideas on Organizing and Decorating a Small Bathroom


Master Bathroom Finally get's Decorated


It only took me 4 years to do it and here is why...  the design of the master bathroom.   It  left me feeling a bit challenged in how I wanted to decorate this very small area and wondering  whether  or not to stay consistent with the decorations, colors and style of the bedroom,  that  got a complete makeover.


 After deciding to go ahead and leave the wall color the same, which is light in color and in such a small area going darker would only make it seem even smaller.   So I decided to stay consistent with the color of the bedroom and vanity area.  I decided to stay with the same color  and just decorate it and use it to organize  some bathroom essentials.


Here was my challenge and  found it odd!  Why would someone put a towel rack in this area?  and gold at that!  Yuck!  It really had  no purpose other than maybe hanging some decorative towels for decoration (boring).  

 Rather than taking the towel rack down  I decided to give this towel rack a makeover and use it to organize some bathroom essentials and combine some bathroom essentials in a decorative way.  


First I gave the towel rack a coat of chalk paint.   But because I wanted the rack fixture to have more of a decorative and texture look,  I made some chalk paint with plaster of paris leaving it very lumpy and thick.






I took some old shower curtain hooks I had  and gave them a coat as well.  Leaving the hook parts untouched ... you will see why in a minute.





I found these cute wire baskets on clearance at Hobby Lobby a few months ago.  The hooks fit perfect right in between the spaces of the wire baskets,  still allowing the decorative tops of the hooks to show.    Much to my surprise all three baskets fit perfect along the rod! I love it when that happens!
Here you can see the color of the wire baskets match the shower curtain hooks that I didn't paint. Making it look like it was meant to be...


I filled the baskets with some seltzer balls, body brush, soaps and bath salts that was only taking up space in the bathroom drawers and cabinets.  

By doing this they now have their own areas and it frees up some much needed space, plus they now help decorate this area.


By using these type of baskets it allows more of an open feeling and not leaving it too cluttered and claustrophobic.    I am still working on this area and will be sharing more ideas on it as I get them

Coffee, Tea and Hydrangeas


Coffee, Teas and Hydrangeas 

 I recently shared a Fall idea with pumpkins and succulents, but after I was looking at it, I wasn't so sure I was ready for the pumpkin scene ... a least not just yet.   

While easing into it, I decided to use  the colors of Fall for now.   I  have been having so much fun decorating my new coffee station and decided to go  with some green apples. (Apples always makes me think of Fall)  among with  soft tones of coral and off whites.



Easing into Fall

while taking apart my Summer centerpiece and putting away my white  hydrangeas,  I was thinking "how could  I re-use these for Fall?"    

Today  I am sharing how I changed the color of  my  white hydrangeas over at Fine Craft Guild. 

This is a fun and inexpensive way to take what you have and a few other items around the house to get some beautiful Fall colors.  So hop on over to Fine Craft Guild and let me know what you think... 



Now you all are probably wondering by the title of this post...where does the Coffee and Tea come in... OK here is where it comes in...

Over the Summer I have been enjoying a couple of yummy tea drinks (I know you all are probably wondering What? No Coffee?  OK... Yes I do have a coffee drink to share with you too... Once a coffee lover always a coffee lover!!! 

Milk Tea is one of the tea drinks that I have really grown to love... Have you heard or tried Milk Tea?



Milk Tea is so easy to make...so rich and creamy while still enjoying the taste of  tea. 
 With only  a few ingredients and so quick to make I usually end up having more than one of these.

I like to brew my tea bags in a sauce pan, other recipes say to seep your tea bags. 
I really feel like this method really brings out more of the richness of tea.

Here is what you will need:

Ingredients:
1 cup of water (bring to a boil)
2 tea bags
1/4 cup of sugar in the raw
1/4 non dairy coffee creamer
ice
Place your tea bags and a cup of water in a sauce pan, bring to a full boil.  Once it has reached a full boil turn your heat off and let it sit for about 5 min.
In a large glass add your creamer, sugar and tea.  
mix well or I like to use my hand held Braun mixer
Once it is all blended, Pour into a glass of ice.  

When I am not drinking milk tea and want something a little different my next best "go to" is Thai Tea and as close to the original as I can get.

 Not all stores carry Thai Tea.  I have found it at World Market and on Amazon.  Don't you just love Amazon!!! 

Amazon has theThai Tea bags and Thai Tea mix  which both are really good.  

Non Fat Thai Tea



Ingredients:

2 Thai Tea Bags
1/4 fat free half and half
1 can of Fat Free La Lechera sweetened Condensed Milk

Following the same method of brewing the tea bags as the Milk Tea 
let cool 
pour Thai tea over Ice 
add your half and half 
add your fat free sweetened condensed Milk to taste

Because I don't like to open a whole can of the condensed milk and only use a small portion of it. I usually make a pitcher of it.  
To make a pitcher full use 4 to 5 tea bags to 2 cups of water
1 can of fat free sweetened condensed  
1  quart fat free half and half 
2 cups of ice

Now for the coffee!!!  Are you still with me?  Here is a little something to keep you awake!  

S'more Ice Coffee Late


Coffee
Non Dairy Creamer
Sugar in the Raw 
Ingredients:
To make a pitcher you will need 2 cups of strong coffee
1/4 cup non dairy creamer 
Whipped topping 
crushed graham crackers 
Chocolate syrup

Directions:
Brew your favorite coffee making it stronger that usual
add sugar in the raw, non dairy creamer 
Pour over ice

First layer: add whipped topping add some crushed graham cracker, chocolate  syrup 
and then add another layer with whipped topping, crushed graham cracker, mini marshmallows and more chocolate syrup. Now that's what I call a S'more on Coffee!! Yum!!!   

What is your favorite?  Tea? or Coffee?
