Fun Easter ideas
- Published on Friday, 18 April 2014
Hello and Good Friday to you! I hope you have a lovely weekend planned, whether it be activities with your family or just relaxing. :)
I had a cute Easter-themed project planned for this week but I just couldn’t get it done. Wah waaah. I know it’s down to the wire here but I thought these other Easter-themed projects and ideas were too cut...
Looking back: A bright office

It’s time for a trip down memory lane! I mentioned earlier this week that I’ll be sharing some of the rooms in our home over the years over the next few weeks. I LOVE before and after pics and I love looking back at this space because I think it’s one of the biggest transformations I’ve ever completed in this house.
This room was...
DIY craftsman window trim
- Published on Tuesday, 15 April 2014
WHOOT! I finally tackled a DIY project that I’ve been wanting to do FOREVER. But I was afraid…so afraid. I am excited to share it with you – there are a lot of pics so grab some coffee or a Coke and enjoy. :)
In addition to beefy baseboards and door trim, my dream has always been to add chunky trim around our windows. It just adds SO much...
Home, to me

I’m feeling a bit nostalgic lately, so bear with me today. :) I’m coming up on two big anniversaries of sorts – by next month I will be blogging for SIX years. Crazy. And next week it will be ten years that we’ve owned our home. I can’t even believe it. Ten years and six months ago this is what it looked like:
Having my child, marrying my...
Master closet reveal!
- Published on Friday, 11 April 2014
Authors:Well I’m SO excited to share this with you, finally! As you know, I’ve been working on our master closet for a couple months now. The first step was purging – and while I was working on that I was contacted by the folks at Sherwin-Williams about their National Painting Week campaign. I was totally up for it, but then they told me my color...

So, this is a project I wasn’t planning to share with you all, but when it became a pain in my butt I decided I would. Sometimes even I read blogs and think everyone’s got it together, but posts like this are nice. Because nobody has it all together, especially not me. :)
Have you seen that Lowe’s commercial, the one with the ceiling fan a...
Updated 80’s light fixture
- Published on Tuesday, 08 April 2014
Hey hey! I’m back with a project that I let sit around for nearly two years. It’s been moved around the house – the garage for a while, then it’s future home (the dining room/library) for the past year or so. Just sitting there. For a year.
It was time. I found this light fixture at the Habitat Restore almost two years ago, even before I f...
April Before and After

Hello everybody! How was your weekend? Lots of basketball here – have I mentioned my son is obsessed? He will literally play all day long and I love it. We’re just glad he can finally play without a coat, hat and gloves for the first time in weeks. :)
It’s the first Monday of the month (April! Finally!) and that means another before and a...

Hello all! First of all, thanks so much for all of the lovely comments on our new moody wall in the bedroom! I really appreciate you taking the time to comment, it means a lot!
Our spring break is coming to a close and we were able to get away to NYC for a couple days with the whole family -- it was wonderful. It’s been more than two y...

Hello everybody! It is beautiful outside and I’m SO excited about the project I finished up this weekend! I’ve been planning it for some time now and I finally bit the bullet and got it done over Saturday and Sunday.
This one was all about the long wall behind our bed in the master. It’s looked like this for some time now, about nine m...
