Thirsty Thursday: Salted Caramel Apple Steamer


Thirsty Thursday: Salted Caramel Apple Steamer

Welcome to Thirsty Thursday!!!  I love steamers... it is an easy, delicious, milk based in this case Soy based drink that can be very relaxing after a busy day and a great Fall drink.  As we all know,  I probably drink way to much coffee,  so this is a way I like to enjoy a hot drink without the amount of caffeine in coffee and hot chocolate.

Steam milk:
I steam my milk using my Rivo System made by Keurig but if you don't have one here is a way to steam milk in the microwave.
Measure the milk and put it in a microwave safe measuring cup or mug.
Microwave the milk for approximately 1 minute 30 seconds, depending on your microwave. You want the milk to be hot, not just warm
In a glass or mug add a small amount of caramel sauce to the bottom, add syrups to your steamed milk pour into glass or cup over caramel sauce. Enjoy!

Arranging Furniture in Family Room


Arranging Furniture in Family Room

While we have been staying busy and making many changes in our home, our  family room was one of them that needed some changing.    By rearranging the furniture, adding new curtains and incorporating the color grey to the already neutral color.

Family room makeover and  rearranging at One More Time Events.com



What really started all of this rearranging was this oak desk

How to rearrange furniture at One More Time Events.com


My husband (Mr. OMT) loves this oak roll top desk (eye roll) and it was out of the question to ask him to get rid of it, paint it or place it in another room (my vote garage...) This has been an eye sore (for me anyway) and really the TV on top??? How ackward is that???    I finally begged,  pleaded and had a hissy fit...no not really, but it did take some convincing, it would look  better on the opposite wall.  He  finally agreed. Whew!!!    Adding a rusted mercury mirror over the desk and creating a vignette of what he likes was fun, antlers, decor gear you know... guy stuff.  Adding our initials and giving them a  faux rusted  finished helped to tie in with the rusted mirror.

Family Room and Office area arrangement at One More Time Events.com

Using the sofa table in the place of where the desk use to be now allows the natural light to come in and gives it a more open feeling and the TV doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.

Taking out the large area rug also helped the area seems bigger and brighter.  So now you are probably wondering  how in the world  we watch the TV with the love seat  like this????  We have  two reclining chairs that  are still in the same place as the picture below.  Sorry,  I didn't get an up to date picture of the chairs in it. That is where we spend most of our time when watching TV




Changes that took place since this picture above:

Area rug removed and smaller rug added
Sofa table top painted and moved to the corner
New repurposed coffee table, suit case luggage rack with Vintage window
Love seat moved to other side of room
New curtains
Lamp repainted grey
Vintage Milking Stool painted and placed under Vintage Window coffee table
Replaced Faux Painted Leather Desk Chair



I really like how the room flows now and doesn't feel so out of place. It now feels like a family room with a working office.  Not an office in the middle of the family room.

How to Make A Faux Rust Finish


How to Make A Faux Rust Finish  

I gave you a little sneak peek at this weeks party on what we have been up to and I am back and excited to share with you a technique that is really quick and easy when you want to add a faux rust finish to any project.


While I like the elegant side of things my husband likes a rustic feel.  So mixing the two elegance and rustic  has become a must when it comes to decorating in the family room.  
Today I am sharing over at Fine Craft Guild a couple ways on how to add  faux rust to Paper Mache' letters and a repurposed mail box that was once stenciled used as a herb garden planter.


How to create a masculine desk vignette with rusted letters at One More Time Events.com

I'll  share a little secret about this desk... I have always struggled with it in the family room,   My husband loves it!  Me...not so much.  I always felt it didn't go well with what we have in the family room and when taking pictures,  I always avoided it and cropped it out,  until now!!

By rearranging and giving it a place of it's own with a new mercury rusted mirror that hangs  above the desk, along with  adding the faux rusted letter pulled it all together nicely.

Next a mailbox was painted and rusted.   I was going to use it as a trash can by the desk, but decided to use it to place some faux natural grass in instead.

 Can you guess what was used to give both projects the look of faux rust?   Be sure to stop by Fine Craft Guild for full tutorials on both projects.

Lampshades: Quick and Easy Fix Harp vs Slip-Uno Fitters


Lampshades:  Quick and Easy Fix  Harp vs Slip-Uno Fitters


Recently we have been making some color changes in the family room by adding grey's 
to our neutral color pallet setting. I am just loving how they are mixing these two colors 
of tan's and grey's together in home decor.

One way  to add color or texture to any room is with lamps and lampshades, so with 
that in mind the lamp in the family room was painted grey and a new lamp shade was
purchased...


              Grey Lampshade fix and fall vignette at One More Time Events.com

I found the perfect lamp shade replacement and in  grey, however when I got home it as 
discovered that it had the wrong fitter for the lamp (heavy sigh) knowing they didn't have 
one the same shade of color with the  correct fitter.  I was prepared to return it until...

Mr. OMT said wait..."I think I can fix it".     Thinking to myself  "how in the world is he going
 to fix it???? But, when he says he can fix something he always comes through!! 

           Harp fitter at One More Time Events.com

Another problem I ran into was the brass colored socket showing...to correct that the 
socket was painted with the same color used on the base of the lamp.

Now back to the fix.   With a few washers

Here are a few tips  I learned about fitters ....and thought I would  pass it along to all of  you.

Harp/Spider Fitters
If your lamp has a harp you will need a shade with a spider fitter. The spider fitter sits on top of the harp and is secured by a finial. If your new shade is not exactly the same size as your old shade, a new harp may be all you need for a perfect fit. Harps typically vary from 7” to 12” and they affect the vertical position of your lampshade. lamp harps. If you do not have a harp but wish to use a shade with a spider fitter you must also purchase a harp. Harps are made in different sizes, which affects the vertical position of the lampshade.

UNO Fitters
If your lamp requires an uno fitter you will need a lamp shade that has an UNO fitter.  The UNO fitter is built-in to the lampshade. 

There are two types of UNO fitters:


Slip-UNO fitters  that sit on the socket and are held in place by the bulb.
Threaded-UNO fitters
 For down-bridge lamps and feature a screw thread for installation above the downward-facing bulb.

 I am pretty lucky to have Mr. OMT, he is pretty handy and can do and fix almost anything
 as far as home improvement,  other than electrical... 

His favorite saying... I don't know,  or do electrical, no wait " I do... I know how to plug  
a plug in the light socket"  his idea of being able to electrical...lol.

Recently, I shared with you about how I received a Keurig Black R500 Rivo Cappuccino and Latte Brewing System for my birthday,  I finally had a chance to use it and I absolutely LOVE it!!!

I really think I found a new love, not only do I love this  Cappuccino and Latte Brewing System, but the Espresso ...oh my goodness!!! 

 I know another person who would love it  as much as I do....Do you have any idea who I am talking about?  Hint everyone loves her and she also has a huge love for coffee, just as I do!!! Ok.. one more hint: Sweet Cheeks.   If you guess Diana from Nana Diana Takes a Break...you are exactly right!!!

Can you just smell the rich pleasant aroma?  Oh just look at all that richness... Yum! 

The Keurig came with a sample pack of three different blends of espresso.   I decided to try the   Delicato espresso.   

This was my very first time trying this coffee,  it is slightly sweet with hints of chocolate along with a long lasting citrus. 


Easy Frothing Keurig Rivo at One More Time Events.com

Another thing I love about this machine is the frothing system, that quickly froths the milk, in this case fat free half and half was frothed.

3 Simple Fall Settings Using Softer Colors


3 Simple Fall Settings Using Softer Colors

This year I decided to stay simple and towards the softer colors of Fall.  Previously I shared the buffet that was refinished and decorated for Fall using softer shades to bring in the Fall season.   I fell in love with the soft creamy shade of  yellow against the driftwood stain which lean towards a beautiful  shade of grey.  We all know how one thing leads to another and my motto being "if it don't match paint it"!   Which is exactly what has been going on around here at One More Time Events.  

Yellow and Grey Fall Vignettes at One More Time Events.com

While shopping the other day, I found these little pumpkins and gourds in the perfect shades of yellow's and white's.   

White and Yellow Pumpkin and Gourd Vignette at One More Time Events.com

and you probably know what's coming next... right?  Yes I did!  I painted some books to match and  create this small Fall vignette on one corner of coffee table.

How to paint a faux wood finish on canvas books.com
Creating a Faux Wood Finish on Canvas covered Books
in 3 easy steps.

To create a wood like finish to the covers of the books, I used some supplies I had on hand.
Books with canvas covers
Folk-Art Sunflower acrylic paint
Behr Cotton Grey
Gesso
sponge brush 

First give the covers of the books  a coat of whatever color you wish for the base color.  Let dry.

Dip the tip of your foam brush  in one of the coordinating colors of paint  and drag the tip of it across the book cover in random lines, go back and blend it in a back and forth motion until your lines are not so prominent,  clean brush, using the next color do the same technique until you reach the look of faux wood you desire and all colors are blended in.  That quick and that easy!

Refinished Finials Using homemade Chalk Paint

On the other side of the coffee table are some more of the small pumpkins on a white platter and three finials that were refinished.   Two of them using the  same colors sunflower yellow and cotton grey  the third a new color of grey sky was used.

By adding  some plaster of paris to the paint in a small container along with a small amount of water giving each finial a base coat and highlighting and blending with the gesso.

For my birthday I was given a Hobby Lobby gift card  and with  part of it I picked up this cute yellow  pedestal bowl and added a grapevine twig orb I also painted white  and highlighted ....as you can see it has pretty much fallen apart and because I have a hard time getting rid of things I decided to use it by nesting  a small white pumpkin in the center of it and placing it in the metal pedestal bowl.

I am loving the grey and yellows....do you have any idea what is about to happen next???  I will be sharing later where this new love of colors is going next in another post.
