Easy DIY Home Decor Projects You Can Complete in a Day

July 29, 2015 4:02 pm

If you want to give your home a quick makeover, you’ll be happy to know that there are a number of ways to make a big impact in just a few hours. Here are just a few simple DIY projects that you can do in one day.

  • Make over your drapes. By simply switching out your window treatments, you can let more light into your home and make a room feel more elegant. Choose bamboo blinds, floor-length sheers, or panels in a light color scheme.
  • Create a foyer. If your home doesn’t have a designated foyer, you can create one yourself by simply adding some sort of seating, a mirror, and a console table to your doorway.
  • Hang mirrors. To create the illusion of more space in a room, add a mirror in a strategic spot. Hang one at the end of a hallway or directly across from a window.
  • Create a coffee table vignette. To make your living room feel more polished, add a stack of books, a bright green plant, and an elegant candle to your coffee table.
  • Build a bar cart. Everyone loves a classic bar cart, so create your own by re-doing a vintage find from your local thrift store. Then top it with pretty glasses and your favorite spirits.

Kitchen Table Cafe: Savor Homestyle Cooking Made From Scratch

July 22, 2015 4:39 pm

You'll know you've arrived at Kitchen Table Cafe when you see the large lettering in the front window: "Scratch Made Comfort Food." That's exactly what you get at this popular Dever eatery!

The menu changes every day depending on what the chef has purchased at the market, though you'll generally find certain favorites appear on the menu with regularity. Barbecue is one of those favorites, and you can typically find both brisket and pork available by the pound. Add a side of coleslaw and a slice of cornbread to make it a meal, and don't forget to include some apple crisp for dessert. Yelp reviewers also praise the restaurant's homestyle meatloaf, which is tender, moist, and served with a slightly tangy sauce on top. For dessert, don't skip the raspberry chocolate pie or the apple crisp!

Kitchen Table Cafe is open 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
