Dressed Windows Finally!

Did ya miss me? I am back today to share some happy windows with you! We have been in our new place about 7 months now with curtains only in the living room. And that is only because that room had giant windows with NO blinds. Seven months later we now have prettily dressed windows…

The.Toys.Have.A.Place.

Ahhhh. Can you hear my sigh of contentment? The toys in our house have.a.PLACE. One of the things we love about our new house is the bonus room, aka… playroom! Previously in our cozy 2 bedroom house, all the toys had to find a place inside the one bedroom that all three kids shared, which…

Six months later. Yes, we live here.

I cannot believe it, but we have finally, finally gotten pictures up on the wall. And not just any pictures. A whole gallery wall, people. I laid everything out in the dining room that is not a dining room and measured and took pictures and did my best to not royally screw everything up and…

Thrifted Storage Chest Before & After

I promised you more details on the great find I snagged at my Goodwill that ended up serving us so well at the foot of our bed. This is one of those pieces that I’m really enjoying showing to people who visit. Probably because it was SO cheap and it’s something that went from not…

The Master Bedroom… our Haven, finally.

You know how the smart people say that you should make your master bedroom your haven and sanctuary? Minus all the clutter and perfunctory? Well, that was very hard to do in our tiny 1950’s era “master” bedroom with our huge furniture squeezed in. There was barely room to walk between the foot of the…

Our Kitchen… Before & After Cabinets

This was NOT our dream kitchen moving in. Don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t horrendous by any means, but it wasn’t exactly our style. It never ceases to amaze me the difference some paint can make. We got a really great price on the paint job since we got a combo deal with all the…

Adding Storage to the Kitchen

I have an issue with our kitchen. I knew it going in, but I am seriously not sure what this builder was thinking when our cabinets were designed. We have three drawers. Three. itty. bitty. drawers. To make matters worse, the widest of the three was even too narrow to fit our wooden silverware tray….

Adding Special Touches to the Kitchen

I’m still in that honeymoon phase with my house. I have had these moments where the feeling of unbelief washes over me that THIS is OUR house. Our kitchen has come quite a long way already with transformed cabinets and new/updated hardware. It’s night and day in there, peeps. I’ve had a couple projects in…
