Crushing On: Facets and Polyhedrons (wait, what?)
- Published on Monday, 28 January 2013
Remember the DIY dodecahedron light Andy made me for our laundry room?
And how we all pretended like we knew what a dodecahedron was before Andy put a name to it? (Or was that just me?)
We’ll show you details on how we made that light – and share a fun announcement! – in the next post, but first I thought it’d...
Covering my nakedness
- Published on Friday, 25 January 2013
When people come to my house for the first time, if I catch them trying to glance toward the breakfast nook, I start waving my hands wildly and loudly talk-yelling to redirect their attention.
Sometimes gymnastics are involved.
Because my breakfast nook is naked.
What’s Your Take: Faux Flowers
- Published on Wednesday, 23 January 2013
Alright kids. It’s that time again: when we come together and debate controversial home-related questions. (See the last “What’s Your Take” posts where we debate juju hats, jacobean fabrics, Turkish kilim rugs and brass/bronze.)
I’m looking for your opinions once again today. No holds barred....
How to Paint Vinyl or Laminate Flooring
- Published on Monday, 21 January 2013
There are times when you should listen to the experts…
…And there are times when you should just gleefully jump in with both feet to a project with no idea of the end results.
Deciding what to do about our laundry room floor was definitely the latter. I showed you guys the before and after photos of our $157 laundry...
Mila Jane is 9 months old! +
- Published on Saturday, 19 January 2013
GAH. It’s like every day she gets older or something.
My tiny girl is already nine months old and she’s the sweetest thing that’s ever walked pooped the earth. She specializes in the most delicious cuddles, an adorable nose-crinkle laugh…
And the coolest eye color which has no name, but flecks of gray, brown,...
Adventures in Wall Stenciling
- Published on Thursday, 17 January 2013
AH. You GUYS. Thank you so much for all the sweet words about our laundry room makeover. I’m basically melting into a puddle of warm fuzzies and gratefulness.
Let’s talk stencil wall!
When it comes to projects that require precision and accuracy, I have the patience and attention span of a gnat. A gnat who has an attention...
LAUNDRY ROOM REVEAL (!!)
- Published on Monday, 14 January 2013
I’m trying to act cool and chill about the fact that I’m FINALLY posting my six-months-in-the-making over-promised laundry room reveal, but inside, whole parts of my brain are in various stages of explosion.
Because look what happened to my laundry room! Here’s how it looked when we moved in:
That clothesline border...
DIY Herringbone Art
- Published on Friday, 11 January 2013
Long have I admired this art piece I found on pinterest. Long have I wanted it in my home. But small is my budget, and large is the size of the canvas I would want.
So, of course, I just had to make it my own little self.
Here’s what you’d need to make your own:
- Canvas in whatever size you like. Mine are ginormous.
- Lots of ...
Our Home Goals for 2013
- Published on Wednesday, 09 January 2013
In my recent post about how we fared on last year’s home goals, I proved that I am not the “goal ninja” I had once hoped, completing all my 2012 house goals quickly and effortlessly, then stabbing them in the kneecaps until they begged for mercy!
In fact, I may be the opposite of a goal ninja, whatever that...
