The One Week Challenge

First Round Of Guest Bedroom Makeover

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Magnetic Paint Fail

Chalkboard Wall In Kitchen

Three things for your Monday morning.  One…90s music is SOOOOOO much better than today’s new hits.  I mean c’mon…90s Britney vs today’s Britney?  Or Katy Perry vs the Spice Girls?  No contest.  Two…winter needs to be over with a capital “O”.  But alas…we’re still stuck in single digits and below.  And three…magnetic wall paint is […]

Super Stipple Sunday

Stenciling Copper Roses Accent Wall

This past Sunday, when I should have been making the Pioneer Woman’s queso fundido, picking out just the right beer at the local craft beer store, and bunkering down to watch the Super Bowl with Colby, I spent my day working on a little project for our master bedroom.  And I’m going to go out […]

DIY Cage Light Fight

$11 DIY Cage Light Fixture

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 […]

Brass Lampie…The Funky Lampie

Brass Pharmacy Lamp In Guest Room

The guest room/craft space refresh continues, this time in the form of a little lighting switcheroo.  We needed to switch out the black lamp (on the desk in the left pic) since it was too tall for the slanted ceiling.  So off it went to thrift store and we replaced it with a brass finish […]
