One of the things that makes a house feel like a home is carefully placed accessories. Beautiful bookshelves, don’t look as pretty without carefully curated objets d’art. Do you love the latest blue and white ginger jar trend? Me too and I was so bummed looking at other people’s homes and feeling like it would look so nice but I couldn’t afford to buy them.
This is probably one of my favorite projects to date. The before and after couldn’t be more dramatic. And hey, any project with leftover (free) leopard fabric is perfect in my book! It was a really easy project, and only took some spray paint and fabric to make a huge difference. I cannot say no to chinoiserie furniture so when I was gifted this bench, I
First, I want to thank you for all the love on Bowie’s new buffalo check headboard! She is loving the new additions to her room! Do you remember the vintage bench that used to be at the foot of her bed? Well, we reupholstered it and spraypainted it and it couldn’t look better! Here is a complete step-by-step tutorial on how to redo a vintage
As you may have noticed, especially after my impromptu Facebook post last weekend (more like an SOS call!) the site has been undergoing a mini face-lift. I am still working on the front page and updating my archives, photographs, and SEO tags. But overall, the transition from Blogger to WordPress went incredibly smoothly and the new site redesign is pretty close to what I envisioned.
As you may have seen from yesterday’s post, there have been some recent updates to B’s room. I have always wanted to make a headboard and I have had the itch to make a pink buffalo check ever seeing Nick Olsen’s pink buffalo check room in Domino back in the day? Remember it? I covered it in a post about a year ago here, Get the
We are still working on the finishing touches in Jack’s nursery. We really wanted to make it a room that is gender neutral and would work for more kids down the road, so we tried to stay as neutral as possible. See here where we left off (curtains and rocking chair re-dos.) *Update the top photo is how the room currently looks because Jack has
Have I kept you all waiting long enough for the nursery paint and curtains reveal? I know, it has been probably keeping you up late at night along with anticipation 😉 So a little background. This is the nursery when we moved in. It is a totally decent sized room but is the smallest bedroom upstairs. It has one window which is totally off-center all
We were generously given this hand-me-down rocker from some good friends, and while it is a great rocker (and has rocked some amazing babies), it just wasn’t my style. But it has wonderful bones so I knew with a little paint and some upholstery it could be great! It was a complete DIY job; although, it wasn’t always meant to be. Originally, I had bought
And here it was before…lots of brown trim Progress (we still need to paint the actual sliding doors) And I realize now that the only before was at B’s birthday party. Again, lots of brown! The details… As far as color for the kitchen and eating room, I wanted to continue the colors in the family room which is right off the kitchen, but wanted
Hello there! Sorry for the radio silence. We have been busy painting and alternately, spending time outside. It is finally warming up here in Wisconsin, and we are trying to make up for the hibernation of the last three months. The good news is that I have some great new projects to show you. We repainted the kitchen and eating area, so you will see
