Everyday I’m Demoing

Neutral Unaccessorized Laundry Room Base

For those of you who follow us on Instagram (and if you’re not you should…you’re totally missing out…hashtag shameless plug) you may have caught this little gem of a laundry room makeover: And I know what you’re thinking, it’s something along the lines of….”Oh em gee…what happened to your laundry room?!”  “Where did the metal […]

Let’s Talk About The Elephant In The Room…Literally

Wicker Elephant Find

We have a new addition in the dining room…an elephant…a wicker elephant…we literally have an elephant in the room that we’re gonna talk about today. I picked him up at a local antiques store for $20 and immediately dubbed him “Mr. Harry Elephante” (pronounced ella-font-tay).  Do you guys remember Mr. Harry Elephante from Friends?  You […]

The Great Coffee Table Rotation

Living Room Post Coffee Table Switch

Earlier this week, I was talking about how my style has been shifting.  Shifting from a beachy, cottage, country farmhouse type vibe to a more sophisticated yet quirky Emily Henderson meets Nate Berkus style, and it feels soooooo right!  In the middle of this style shift I was hating on our living room.  Like, HATING […]

Ooops I Did It Again

Shifting Styles

I’m pretty certain I’ve used my favorite Britney song (Ooops…I Did It Again) as a blog post title once before but alas, a Google search failed to unearth such musings.  How appropriate for the first post title after a nearly two month hiatus…after a previous two month hiatus earlier this year.  Let’s just say, steady […]

Closet Shelf Building & Rod Recycling

Master Closet Shelf Building

The eagle has landed…and departed.  And by eagle I mean our house guest, Colby’s mom.  We had a blast this weekend laying low and hanging out with her.  She’s a great lady…seriously…no sarcasm included.  I mean, c’mon.  She wanted to go to the flea market!  Now that’s my kind of a Saturday afternoon.  Although she […]

Master Closet Building And Painting

Master Closet Building

And the award for most boring blog post title goes to….points thumbs towards self…moi.  I honestly couldn’t think of anything witty for tonight’s post.  Maybe I’m tired.  Although I do have about 5 post titles all picked out, some of which we have projects for.  But back to today’s post.  As the title alludes, we’re […]

Cloudy With A Chance Of Guests

Rustic & Masculine Guest Room Mood Board

According to recent forecasts, the outlook for this coming weekend is cloudy with a chance of guests.  Sarcastically fortunate for us, our guest room looks like this: Oh wait…it gets better…here’s the view from another angle: In our defense, the guest room is looking gnarly because our master bedroom closet is under construction.  Technically, it’s […]

You’re Sill The One

Built Up Porch Window Sill

I started writing this post going into a rousing round of Shania Twain “you’re still the one” lyrics circa 1998 but replacing “still” with “sill” along with a few other choice words, but I didn’t.  You’re welcome.  So now that you have THAT song permanently stuck in your head, let’s talk about our porch reno […]

The State Of The Porch Address

Porch Repair Progress

Let’s talk porches.  In particular our front porch which we decided to “remodel” last fall.  And by remodel I mean rip the whole thing apart, expose it to the elements, and put it all back together again Humpty Dumpty style.  Mind you, this was fall…in Maine…and a MAJOR undertaking of a project.  Needless to say, […]

Lime Up My Life

Lime Dining Room Chairs

When we last left off on this little dining room refresh saga, I left you with a “to be continued”…and had intended to “continue” last week…my bad!  But here we are today with the aforementioned TBC.  Without further ado, I bring you our freshly painted dining room chairs. Hello lover lime!  I went bold.  Just […]

For My First Trick

Testing Three Inch Pom Poms

We’ve been out of the DIY game for what seems like forever.  And by forever I really mean about two months, which feels like an eternity by the way.  So I figured a nice and easy, dining room curtain switcheroo would be just the ticket.  Our dining room has been sporting a pair of plaid […]

We’re Back…Bueller…Bueller

Triumphant Return From Blogging Hiatus

After a 2+ month blogging hiatus, we’re back with a vengeance John McClain style…okay…John McClain style without some form of public transportation destruction.  Anybody still with us?  Bueller?  Bueller?  The break was definitely not intentional (remember…intentional…my word of the year?!) but turned out just what we needed.  Why the break?  Well, pull up a chair […]

What Comes First…The Basket Or The Shelves

Master Closet Planning

Let’s talk closets today.  Our master bedroom closet in particular.  And how much of a hot mess it is.  Actually, it’s more like the mullet of the closet world.  In the front it’s all business as usual.  It doesn’t look too bad with the galvanized curtain rod and makeshift drop cloth curtains. But then you […]

A Man Pink Door

Coral Door Hardware

I believe in two kinds of vows when it comes to marriage…the wedding vows that you get up and recite in front of all your friends and family…aka…the pretty vows.  Then there are the real vows.  Colby and I have them.  For instance, Colby vows that if we ever split up, he HAS to take […]
