  • Cloudy With A Chance Of Guests

    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 […]

  • How-To
  • Bead Board Bonanza

    When there’s a will beadboard, there’s a way.  I’ve pretty much figured out how to work beadboard into just about every room in our house.  Seriously…there’s the bathroom ceiling slant, the ceiling slant in our bedroom, the original (and solid wood) beadboard on our porch ceiling, backing our kitchen coat closet, and on the staircase […]

  • How To Re-Upholster A Chair

    Tonight we’ve got the third and final installment of the $5 thrift chair refinishing saga.  I know, exciting stuff.  We revealed the chair refinish, then posted about how we fixed the broken spring, and tonight it’s all about how we got the upholstery done.   The supplies we used for upholstering the chair included a […]

  • Heroes In A Half Shell – Berkus Power

    Consider me a bandwagoner.  I hopped on and hopped on big time with the Nate Berkus for Target line.  I have definitely visited the Nate Berkus line for Target on at least five occasions.  Jury is still out whether or not the first visit counted since there was no Nate Berkus gear on display.  I […]

  • Fern Immersion

    It’s memory test time.  Ready?!  Do you remember how way back when we decided to use ferns as centerpieces for our wedding?  And made birch bark covered pots with our initials carved into the sides of them?  Here’s a refresher: Well, post wedding we had to figure out what to do with all the ferns. […]

  • Office/Craft Room
  • Craft Room Re-Reorganization

    And we’re back in the craft room for a re-reorganization and a little painting fun.  A few weeks back I setup and organized the craft space but it was nowhere near perfect (read about it back here).  Over the last few weeks, I’ve been tweaking it, re-tweaking it, until I’m finally pseudo, almost okay, can […]

  • Office/Craft Room
  • We’ve Been Setup

    I was really hoping to be able to give you all a big hallway floor refinishing reveal tonight, but alas, I have none such reveal.  In the history of floor refinishings, this floor has been the most dastardly.  After a solid week’s worth of work this is about how far I’ve come, after a fresh […]

  • Raising The Bar

    The last week or so we’ve had a bunch of epiphany moments.  Like Goose is such a good dog when we run him, dust goes away when you actually dust, and yards are muddy…really muddy in the spring in Maine.  But the most profound epiphany moment was when we asked ourselves, “why should the most […]

  • Pitchers With A Side Of Table

    So this post is loooooong over due.  So long.  So very very long.  But considering I have little to report in the parlor refinishing project thanks to being out straight stressed/busy at work work and coming down with a weird cold thing, it’s time for some pulling out some oldies.   Thus, I’m catching up on […]

  • What We’ve Been Up To

    And now for an exclusive, behind the scenes tour of what went on in our not-always-so-humble abode during the Christmas season house project moratorium, declared a month ago.  The idea behind the house project moratorium was twofold.  First, we could use a little break from all the crazyness and the mess that often comes with […]

  • Pillow Talk

    Before I get into this blog post, can I just say how ridiculously awesome Target is?  Ok, now that we’ve got that out of the way let’s talk about pillows.  Back here when we first got the couch for the office, I picked up some really cheap pillows from target.  I got three pillows for […]
