Shabby Antique Bench

Lately, I've been finishing pieces of furniture that have been sitting around in the back of my garage forever.

January Mantel & Contributor Post

Hey there!
 
I'm in the process of purging my furniture and accessories in preparation of selling my home, but still can't help myself from prettying things up around here.

Vintage Campaign Nightstand & New Partnership

 This is a sponsored post.

Happy 2015 friends!

Thank you all for sticking with Number Fifty-Three over the past year (even during my moments of slow posting)! There are going to be some significant changes over the next several months, including putting my house on the market and moving, and  I am so excited to share this journey with you all.

Despite all these changes I plan to continue to blog about all my latest furniture updates and crafts.

One piece that I recently finished was this awesome vintage campaign nightstand. I've had it for months and am thrilled that it finally received its makeover.

Inspired by Macy's: Gifts for the Baker

 This is a sponsored post.
 
Hey everyone! This is the last in a series of posts sharing some of my fave gift ideas from Macy's! (You can read the other two posts here and here.)
 
When I was approached to share these gift ideas it was a natural to pick gifts for the baker. Baking just totally screams the holidays. From cookies to Christmas morning breakfasts baking is just a part of the tradition.
 
Gifts for the baker


 
 
I am completely loving the copper egg white beating bowl (copper is so popular right now)!!!

Inspired by Macy's: Kitchen Essentials

This is a sponsored post.
 
Hello friends! I'm sharing another fab style guide from Macy's with you all today and I am extra excited about this one!
 
As much as I love DIY and decorating, my first passion as always been cooking. It's something I got from my Dad and spent tons of time in the kitchen with him and watching cooking shows when I was growing up.
 
It carried over into adulthood, and, here's a little secret for you all....my boys, who will be 13 and 11 in a couple of weeks, have never called me any form of mom. Nope. They call me Coka. It's something my firstborn came up with right around the time he turned two. He was trying to say Cooker because apparently I cooked a lot!



 
    Wouldn't any of the above gifts be perfect to bring to a holiday party this year?
     
    I'm particularly loving the wood grain on that cutting board. And also the skillet grill. The bold color is so super fun!
