  • 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 […]

  • A Man Pink Door

    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 […]

    Welcome back Inspired Design Challenge followers/readers/general awesome people.  How was your weekend?  Mine was fantabulous…thanks for asking…mostly because we tackled this little Urban Outfitters inspired project: Boom!  New plant hangers for the dining room in your face!  Sorry.  Apparently I get a little excited about plant hangers.  Anywho, this week for the Inspired Design Challenge […]

  • A Wood Tiled Mirror How To

    Last week, we played the big tease card and revealed to you our absolutely amazing mirror makeover.  It was a builder grade mirror that we gave the little West Elm-ish treatment to and turned it into something like this: But to fully appreciate the mirror makeover, you need to know that it used to look […]

  • Antique Stores
  • Weird Things

    I can’t explain, I really can’t, but I’m attracted to odd, bizarre and generally out there items.  Case in point…my latest flea market/antique store find…an old wooden pet carrier. What is wrong with me?!  Seriously!  I think I need an intervention.  I truly need a wooden pet carrier like I need a kick in the […]

  • 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 […]

  • There’s A New Chair-iff In Town

    So some of you super-observant readers out there may have noticed in yesterday’s post, but there has been a little rearranging going on in the living room and parlor at Casa Campbell.  More specifically, a little chair re-arranging.  Before, there was this pink chair in the living room: And then this matching pink chair in […]

  • Been Hanging Around

    Now I have the Counting Crows song “I’ve Been Hanging Around” stuck in my head.  Sweet (she says sarcastically).  At least it’s a good song that reminds me of my high school days.  On second thought, maybe that’s not such a good thing.  Anyway, we’ve got a new kitchen closet organizer hanging around these days […]

  • Operation Eyesore

    Now that I’ve let your eyes rest for a few days from the neon-ness of my good ol’ nightstand (read more about it back here) that’s been with me since high school, you’re ready for the big reveal.  Now you can REALLY appreciate the nightstand’s new “outfit”.  Ta-da: Shiver me timbers…thar she blows!  And it’s […]

  • 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.

  • Art I Heart
  • Back At One

    Lately, I’ve been up to my eyeballs sorting through wedding stuff.  Packing up stuff, putting it all away, bring order back into our lives, and most importantly trying to re-purpose leftover wedding paraphernalia.  Everything from house plants to table runner fabrics and even these table numbers. What in the world am I to do with […]

  • Wedding Week: Card Cage

    This weekend has been nuts…certifiably nuts.  It was our last free weekend before the wedding week festivities kick off and we had ALOT to get done.  Most every major task has already been taken care of (minus the final DJ meeting but that’s scheduled for Monday after work) so now it’s down to the little […]
