Freshen Up Outdoor Spaces for Late Summer

Window boxes- The 2 Seasons

Although it is tempting to get a head start on fall, we are holding on to summer as long as we can.  That being said, it’s that time of year when our outdoor flowers are drooping, our outdoor fabrics are fading, and much of our outdoor decor isn’t as crisp and clean as we want […]


New Living Room Rug

New living room rug - The 2 Seasons

Well, folks I have officially gotten out of my comfort zone with our newest home purchase.  I mentioned before that I really wanted to work on our living room, and the first step, in my opinion, was getting a new rug.  I bought our current rug years ago at Home Goods.  Since then it has […]


Converting a China Cabinet into a Linen Cabinet

Convert a china cabinet to a linen cabinet - The 2 Seasons

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MegaPrepped #CollectiveBias Y’all, I am sooooo excited about today’s reveal.  This project has been in the back of my mind for a long time.

Personalize a Lamp with a Monogrammed Finial

Monogrammed finial on lamp - The 2 Seasons

Lamps and pillows……Those are the things that personalize a home.  In fact, I have heard that pillows are “stuffed animals” for adults, and I believe that!  I love lamps that are somewhat different from the main stream, and that’s why I don’t mind making my own, buying second-hand lamps and upgrading them, or having custom […]


Updating Estate Sale Art

Updated estate sale art - The 2 Seasons

Hello, everyone.  We mentioned in this post a few weeks ago that we spent some time in DC with our son and daughter-in-law, Josie.  She has great taste and is making their home a cozy and inviting spot.  She loves a good estate sale, and we happened to find one on the Saturday afternoon when […]

We love it when we hear from you through comments and emails.  After all, it would be pointless to write this blog if we didn’t have loyal readers who visit us every day and enjoy what they see.  Recently, we received an email from Mary who enjoyed this blog post so much that she decided […]


How to Change the Look of a Tray

Tray updated with scrapbook paper - The 2 Seasons

I sort of have a thing for trays.  I am especially fond of the butler tray style.  It seems as if the boxy style lends itself to many uses.  One of the things I like most about a tray is that it is easy to change the look without a lot of effort.  It is […]


Converting a Hutch to a Buffet – A Revisit

Custom lamp shades - The 2 Seasons

Mom and I had a wonderful week-end together, and we are easing back into our blog.  I have to admit that turning off the computers and phones was so liberating and relaxing.  We did manage to add a photo to our instagram account now and then (you can sign up to follow us here,) but […]


A Tour of Our Guest Room

Jordan's guest room - The 2 Seasons

I had time to get this post together during nap time thanks to Mom taking the photos last week.  I realized after typing the headline that the word tour might make our guest room sound grander than it is.  The guest room is the smallest bedroom in the house, and we put it together with […]


An Update to the Basement Steps

Basement steps - after - The 2 Seasons

As of this week, we have lived in our townhouse for five years.  And what a fast five years they have been.  Can life slow down, please?  Just a little?  We have thoroughly enjoyed our down-sized life and haven’t looked back with regret even once.  Of all the rooms in our place, though, the basement […]
