Musical Decor

I wonder how long I could go without moving things around in my house. Not long, for sure. :) It's totally like playing musical chairs, except with decorative items. 

I've been moving things around in my kitchen again. (Surprise!) I originally had this cutting board in another spot to cover up an outlet, but moved it over here because I liked how it looked next to the stand mixer and jar of cupcake liners.

So, how am I covering up that other outlet now? Well, I discovered these canisters do a pretty good job. Isn't it kind of fun to play around with your decor? It's like playing house or something. :)

 I know a lot of you probably have this same rug from Target...

Judging from the amount of pics I see of this very rug on IG, Target has sold thousands of them. Anyway, I really do love this rug and it's held up great! I've noticed it is pretty stain resistant too. I've spilled a plethora of things on it including all kinds of makeup, blush, powder, mascara, etc. and it's all come out with just a white wash cloth and a little water. Just thought I'd share in case you're looking for a rug. It comes in lots of colors too. It's the "Threshold Fretwork rug." 

One more quick thing...I was so thrilled to have Home Depot share our DIY SUBWAY TILE BACKSPLASH on their Instagram account!

So neat to be featured by them! :) 

Well, I just finished cleaning my house and now you can find me right here with my coffee and kindle for the next little while...

I had such a busy week last week, and it's nice to have a slow, relaxing day.

That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I love that mug and how cool was that to be featured by HD??? Have a blessed day my friend!

  2. I love playing musical decor!!! Love that name by the way ;)
    It's so much fun finding new uses for things or placing a decor item somewhere else!

    I'm glad to hear that rug is easy to clean since we have it in the nursery. I love the color and pattern of it and it's great for any room, too!

    I was so excited for you when you shared that Home Depot shared your backslash on their IG!! Super cool, friend!

    Enjoy your relaxing day!

  3. I believe I have that same rug in my master bathroom too. You're right. It has held up well. Congrats on getting on Home Depot's instagram! That's so neat.

  4. Lisa, If you are done cleaning there- feel free to come over here and do a bit of cleaning for me! Love your changes- that is always a fun, and easy, way to freshen things up. I don't have that rug but I might need one! xo Diana

  5. I always love seeing your changes. Love, love that rug. Congratulations on getting a shout out from Home Depot. What an honor!

    1. Thank you, Maria Elena! It was exciting to see Home Depot feature our backsplash! :)

  6. Lisa, can you believe there are people out there that could care less about cords and outlets? I know. Hard to believe, right? I'm looking for a console table and I want to put a lamp on it. It has to be the type that I cannot see the cord hanging down behind it. One day I'll find it LOL. Congratulations on being noticed by Home Depot! That's big!

    1. Thank you, Debbie! I hope you find a console table that will hide the cords! If not, you can always just tape the cords down. :)

  7. You are so cute! When I saw the title of your post I thought you had a project with sheet music!!

    I love that you try to cover up those outlets. You do that with electrical cords, too, don't you? I guess I overlook a lot of things! Ha! But I'll remember. And you have me thinking that I have done NOTHING with my mantel for about two months. Just a few changes would be enough.

    Congrats on HD finding your fantastic back splash...that's a lot of "likes". Yay!!!

  8. I wish I was as good at moving stuff around as you are, Lisa! And how exciting to be featured on Home Depot... Wow! But I am not surprised!

  9. Love that rug in your bathroom and anything that is easy to keep clean is a big plus! Congrats on having your back splash featured on Home Depot's Instagram too!

  10. Congratulations on the HD feature!! It turned out beautifully and yes, the recognition is warranted! I cannot even tell you how many rugs I've looked at ~ not only at Target but other places too. I've even put a few in my basket and then end up removing them. Decisions, decisions! :)

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Weather has been absolutely perfect here this week and I think continuing through the weekend before the storms return. Ugh!


  11. That is so exciting to be featured by Home Depot. Congratulations! Your rug is so pretty and it is nice to know it is easy to clean any spills. Thanks so much for sharing with us!

    1. Thank you, Kim! I'm all for things that are easy to clean! :) With a house full of boys, that's always a plus! Lol!
