Foyer Table

So our house should be done in about 2 weeks or so and I still haven't found the perfect table for our foyer.  
The foyer looks like this:
I am thinking of doing something like this:

Why is this table so hard to find for under $100?  I am wicked jealous of people who can go to thrift stores and garage sales and find treasures, because around here, I never find ANYTHING!

So that's my rant for the day.  Have a great week.  And let me know if you find this table!

Hanging Name Above Crib

I almost forgot...  I have been up to a few projects too!
Here is one I made for Teddy's Jungle Room!

They were originally white letters that I purchased from Pat Catans.   I spray painted them black, since his furniture is espresso and then took scrapbook paper, traced out the letters, cut them out (which I did twice for the T because I did it backwards) and Mod Podged it onto the wooden letter and over it a few times for a nice shiny glazed look.

I am still debating on what color ribbon to attach to it.  Any thoughts?
Oh, and did I mention his room is painted BRIGHT green??

This picture doesn't do the color justice.  It is Topiary by Glidden.  
It is actually a little bit darker now that the second and third coats are up.

It really looks nice with the Zanzibar bedding and accessories we already have from Babies R Us. We are also debating painting some animal murals on the wall. I can't wait to move in and set it all up!

Linking to this party!

New Home!

Sorry I have been totally MIA.  But our new home consumed my life for the last few weeks.  
Here are some progression photos.
The framing has begun
The roof is on!

Siding is complete in the back of the house

I love the arches!  They are my fav!!
