Authors: Carrie @ Hazardous DesignIs my treasure.
We happened upon a yard sale over the weekend where I found this pair of chairs.
They'll look rather handsome once they are shed of their dowdy fabric and upholstered in something awesome. I'm currently thinking they need to be covered in a black and white horizontal stripe.

Authors: Carrie @ Hazardous DesignOh dear. I think I broke my house.
Remember my front door with all of it's mismatched hardware?
It dawned on me later that the handle set is unlaquered brass. That's a good thing! Look at how beautiful the doorknob is on the inside against the glossy black door.
It is golden and has a muted shine which is all...

Authors: Carrie @ Hazardous DesignOur house in its current state reminds me of Humpty Dumpty after all the kings horses and all the kings men tried to put him back together again. For the last 3-4 weeks our yard has been swarming with roofers, gutter installers, carpenters, (and Chris!) who are patching it up and making it look good as new.

Authors: Carrie @ Hazardous DesignA friend of mine and I joke how we always defy Stacy and Clinton's rules from What Not To Wear when it comes to buying clothes in multiples. We know we aren't supposed to own 5 of the same cardigan in different colors but we do it anyway.
Does the same rule apply to what you buy for your house?
No, you aren't...

Authors: Carrie @ Hazardous DesignI received this alarming text from my neighbor Saturday morning while we were out:
"It doesn't look like you guys are around but your entire front porch fell and is laying on your bushes."

Authors: Carrie @ Hazardous DesignHow many bloggers does it take to paint a nursery?
Casey and SarahIf you said three, then you were right :)
Sarah, of the blog Pewter and Sage, and I got together last Sunday to help Casey paint her nursery. Never before has painting been so much fun!
Curious to see what the nursery looks like after our day...
Note to Self

Authors: Carrie @ Hazardous DesignDear Carrie,
Someday when the roof is done and the house is painted,
after furniture has been purchased for your nearly empty living room,
after the ancient wallpaper is removed from your dining room,

Authors: Carrie @ Hazardous DesignOur pre-painted gutters are were installed late last week...
Our pre-painted, color matched "montgomery white" gutters.
Allow me start from the beginning.
A couple weeks ago, I went to the Benjamin Moore store to pick out color chips for our trim, accent, and front door colors. It was serendipitous that a...
