Spray paint blues
- Published on Thursday, 24 April 2014
Hey hey! I have a little taste test for you today! OK, not taste – don’t eat the spray paint. But a comparison of sorts. I told you about the blue desk for my office earlier this week. The one that I didn’t like in it’s blue state, at least in that room. I actually did love it in a more saturated tone than it’s before color – sometimes I f...
Building a house
- Published on Tuesday, 22 April 2014
Hey all! It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood – hope your weather is finally coming around too!
Lately I’ve been talking a bit about a big anniversary that’s coming up next week – ten years this house! I’m pretty nostalgic about it. It means so much to me that we’ve been here for so long. I swear I’m getting the house a cupcake next Mo...
Desk do over
- Published on Monday, 21 April 2014
Hello all! Hope your weekend and holiday was wonderful! Our Easter ended up being a lot more low key than we planned and it was great! My boy played outside pretty much all day long yesterday and it was fabulous – this is the weather we’ve been waiting for!
So the project I’m sharing today was frustrating – sometimes you put a lot of time...
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
- Published on Thursday, 17 April 2014
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
- Published on Monday, 14 April 2014
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...
