  • The One Week Challenge

    Guest bedroom with tapestry hanging behind the bed

    The last three weeks/weekends have been a whirlwind for us.  First there was Chicago for a work conference, then there was a weekend in Connecticut/New York for a baptism, and this past weekend we hosted our first overnight guests, in town for the annual family reunion.  I like to think it was successful…maybe…okay…maybe we’re a […]

  • Hanging High And Dry

    Alternate title for this post “How $9.32 And Twenty Minutes Saved My Sanity And Prevented Me From Pulling My Hair Out During The Holiday Shopping Craziness That Is Our Etsy Shop”.  But I thought that might be too long of a title.  Consider yourselves spared.  But the nine bucks and twenty minutes was well worth […]

  • Tying Up Loose Trim

    Starting projects…totally my jam…finishing projects…not so much.  Please tell me I’m not the only one who is a stellar project starter but then lets them kind of fizzle?!  Anywho, I needed to take some “workshop” photos for our shop listing on Scout Mob and our Etsy office space was kind of looking like this: I […]

  • DIY Cage Light Fight

    My current obsession these days has been all about the industrial look.  Who would have thunk it?!  Especially since I work full time in industrial distribution.  What I’ve REALLY been jonesing after have been all those gorgeous cage lights.  I love an old school looking, exposed light bulb, and those colorful trouble-light-esque cages surrounding the […]

  • Here’s A Curtain, There’s A Curtain, Everywhere A Curtain Curtain

    I’m about to let you in on the deep, dark, inner workings of my brain, particularly with my thought process.  Women and small children, those who are pregnant or who could become pregnant should use caution before proceeding.  Officially consider yourself warned.  This evening…we’re talking about curtains with and underlying theme of my indecision.  And […]

  • Where No Doorknob Has Been Before

    That’s right, we’re going places we have never been before.  We’re blazing a trail, bushwhacking it if you wish, and taking our Etsy office door from doorknob-less: To officially doorknob-ed: Yes, that’s right.  Tonight, we’re learning how to install a doorknob where no doorknob has been before.  This step is long overdue.  What’s it been, […]

  • Beaming

    Beaming is what my face should have been doing after installing the faux beams in the Etsy office.  But instead, it was doing the anti-beaming frown because it turned out more like this: I like the beams, they’re great, and they do a fantabulous job of covering up those icky seams between the beadboard panels […]

  • He Thinks My Tractor Seat Stool’s Sexy

    When I’m chugging aloooooooong….oh Kenny…Kenny, Kenny, Kenny…you had me at hello.  Okay, I’m done reminiscing about old school Kenny Chesney songs and lyrics, let’s talk about stools!  As many of you Instagram followers of ours may know, the Colb-ster and I took a nice little 8 hour jaunt over to Vermont for an extended weekend […]

  • How To Lighten Stain

    A few days ago we introduced you to the newest member of the family…the beefy desk. As we mentioned before, since the cheaper-than-it-should-have-been-because-it-was-really-wet wood needed some serious dry time, we let the desk air out a bit before staining it.  More like let it air out for about two weeks-ish before staining it.  I probably […]

  • I Wanna Stoop Baby

    Here I go, here I go, here I go again, girls what’s my weakness?!  Stools!  Okay then!  What?!  Can’t a girl start a blog post with a little Salt ‘n Peppa circa 1992 around here?!  Oh well I tried.  Instead, we’re gonna talk about stools.  Just to clarify, the ones that you sit on not […]

  • How To Install An Interior Door

    Let’s put that door in already!  Right?!  To recap our door slab to installed door saga, we first learned a little door lingo and then prepped the raw door slab for hanging, which included routing out the door and jambs for hinges.  Now all that’s left is a little door hanging. So let’s hang, shall […]
