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 […]

Guest Room Remix Refresh

Spray Painted Guest Room Basket

Let’s set the record straight.  We have this room in our house with multiple personality disorder.  It started off as an “office” and then turned into a “craft room”, but when we decided to turn our “then guest room” into an “Etsy office” the “craft room” became the guest room.  So for the record, I’m […]

Bead Board Bonanza

Beadboard In The Office

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 Lighten Stain

Desk Stained With Lightened Early American 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 […]
