#MeetTheAgentMonday: Annie’s DIY Project

What happens on a cold Sunday on Martha’s Vineyard…. (Other then football) DIY projects!

This weekend, I was looking to give a few pieces of furniture a facelift. One of which was a great piece I got at the local Boys and Girls Club Second Hand store in Edgartown. An amazing organization dedicated to children that I love to support.  I found a great low table with drop leave sides. It looked like someone started to paint, but left the legs with streaks of black paint, maybe covering up green paint. SO I wanted to try a metallic!

I love Rustoleum paint. It’s easy to use, had a flawless finish and requires NO prep.

I used the hammered silver metallic. Check it out.

A Sense of Fall on Martha’s Vineyard

As the leaves turn, the weather cools and the island hustle and bustle transforms into the slow pace way of life “island life”……The shops are offering sales, the restaurants are serving comfort food, and the fact that you can skip the bathing suit and walk around in leggings, boots and a cozy sweater is in my mind a bonus.

My weekends look a little like this…

Dinner with the Fam:

At The Newes from America– Onion rings, and the simple salad with tenderloin is my favorite. While my husband prefers the buttermilk chicken and my 2 year old son eats the fish and chips and of course the pickles and ice cream that our favorite waitresses Ashley brings.

Or date night out: Alchemy is wonderful. The second floor offers a cozy fireplace and a great bar. The risotto balls are amazing and I love the Jonas crab salad.

Sunday morning breakfast: Black Dog for sure, finally no wait! The French toast is my best friend.

A stroll in Vineyard haven, (to walk off the French toast) into Rainy Day to look at the amazing Christmas ornaments and stocking-stuffers they start to set up.

Top it off with leave cleanup and a visit to Morning Glory Farm for a hot apple cider and donuts to go.
