Remember This? Reupholstering Update
- Published on Monday, 09 April 2012
Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseI started this project ages ago. Remember this montage of funny faces and a headband slipping further and further back on my head?
After telling you all about the chair and sharing the journey of ripping it apart, I wanted to appear awesome and come back with a full reveal of a finished chair, say, a month...
Housiversary Celebration Four: What's Next
- Published on Friday, 06 April 2012
Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseToday is Good Friday. I'll be spending the day at church and with family to acknowledge the sacrifice of Christ. That means this post was written yesterday! I know, crazy. I am sending happy Easter thoughts your way this weekend! I hope it is a long weekend full of blessings and rest for you, whether you celebrate...

Housiversary Celebration Two: How Far We've Come
- Published on Wednesday, 04 April 2012
Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseEarly followers of This Dusty House will know I talked quite a bit about the floor plan changes we've done. I know it's hard to visualize these through pictures and before and afters become deceptive when the kitchen we have is not even in the same place as the kitchen that once existed. So, before I present our...

Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseIn keeping with my general inability to properly commemorate blog anniversaries and special dates, I allowed our first anniversary of owning this house to drift past unnoticed.
Well, perhaps not completely unnoticed. I may have mentioned it to the husband when I got home from the OOAK show. But we didn't do...
One Of A Kind Toronto
- Published on Monday, 02 April 2012
Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseOn Saturday, three lovely friends and I took to the aisles of the One Of A Kind Show at the Ex. I was absolutely blown away by the show, yet went home with nothing. Why? I'm often an impulse shopper, but over the years, those impulses have not generally worked out so well for me. I am familiar with the concept of...

Thanks to two amazing bloggers, April from Money Pit Love and Christine from Bijou and Boheme (Go read their stuff! You'll love it.) myself and two friends are headed to the One Of A Kind show tomorrow afternoon. (I know... it seems greedy winning two giveaways at once, but my friends are grateful!) I...
The Process: Kitchen Tile Part III
- Published on Wednesday, 28 March 2012
Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseHave you ever noticed that, when a homeowner is taking part in a renovation with the HGTV crew, they always get put on the task of tiling? You know why?
Because it's super easy. A little messy, perhaps, but easy none-the-less. Also, depending on how much you're tile, it doesn't even take that long. Our small...
Tile on the Wall: Part II!

It's a backsplash!
I have no idea how we managed to find such a perfect tile for our kitchen. If you'll remember from my post yesterday, we picked it on a whim on a trip to Rona for paint. We weren't expecting to even look at tile. We saw it; we bought...
Part I: Kitchen Backsplash!
- Published on Monday, 26 March 2012
Authors: Nette @ This Dusty HouseHappy Monday!
As planned, the Husband and I took one big step back from our mudroom project. It's not finished yet... we still need to source doors for the pantry cupboard, sand and paint the closet, add trim, tile the entry floors, carpet the stairs, and build our bench, shelf and coat racks. Lots to do. But...
