Two Upcycled Rooms & Meet Me at the Mom Cave!


Upcycled Dining Room at the Philadelphia Home Show - love the pommel horse bench!

How amazing is this dining room?

Only Denise from The Painted Home would come up with the idea to use a pommel horse as a bench!


Not only does she know how to turn castoffs into cool furniture and room designs but she’s also hysterical.

Guess what – we’re going to be presenting together at the Philadelphia Home Show this Sunday (1/19/14)!

The topic – how to create your very own mom cave.

This is Denise’s third year as a designer at the Philly Home Show.

Last year – she brought it with an upcycled dining room.

She turned this blank space …

Two years ago, Denise whipped up a flea market chic guest room/office.

  2. Kelly,
    I know you’ll be amazing as always. Have a great time and I can’t wait to see the pictures when you return.

  3. Well I’m somewhat nearby and would certainly enjoy some tickets if they’re still available. What fun! Can’t beat flea marketing decorating (I do it all the time) – and w/ a vintage camper – should be a hit for sure!

  4. how i enjoy reading your blog and all the inspiring pictures and ideas! would love to go to the show and investigate all the wonderful decorating and upcycling that can be seen 🙂

  5. It would be so fun to meet you and see all your ideas up close and personal! Looking forward to this event…Oh, it is just a couple days away!!!!!

  6. Love the pommel horse. At least it would be comfortable and you could vault off the horse and do a perfect two twist and landing when you are finished with your meal. How fun to be a part of this, good luck!

  7. So excited for you ladies! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!!!!!!! Wish I could go, will just wait for your post on it Kelly!
