Old Table, New Life

accent table makeover

As you may know, I’m making some changes in the dining room. I’ve been on the lookout for a cute little (emphasis on little!) accent table – something that can squeeze into this tiny wall we have in there, and act as a catch-all surface for mail, keys, phone chargers, etc. I’ve got an image […]

Who Says You Have to Pay For Furniture?

painted and stained chairs

Ok, the title might be a little misleading, because in all honesty, this is a tale of a whole lotta luck on my part. I recently gained an entire ‘new to me’ set of dining room chairs…and didn’t spend a dime. I realize this isn’t always the case – you can’t exactly decide today to […]

Sharpie Magic, a Rockin’ Tray, and The Room That Always Changes

A new blog post? Say whaaaaat? My apologies, dear friends. This might be the longest I’ve ever gone without posting – it’s not that I haven’t been doing stuff FOR the blog, it’s just that I’ve got 274 projects going simultaneously and therefore haven’t had time (or completed any of the 274 projects) to post. They’re […]

Finally! My little girl’s room has been done for a few weeks, but GEEZ are the holidays busy, amIright? I mean, awesome, insanely fun busy, but busy nonetheless.

Top Ten of 2014

Wow, hard to believe I’m writing this post – feels like I JUST wrote my Top Ten of 2013 post! Time flies when you’re having fun, right? This year started with a bang. Or should I say, a hack. Right at the beginning of January is when my old site was mysteriously no more, leading […]

What I Want for My Kids At Christmas


Yesterday, my aunt posted a TBT (Throwback Thursday) picture. From many years ago, on Christmas night at my grandparents’ house. Those nights were magical, in every sense of the word. It was like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting – Mom Mom was a master pianist, and just humming a song for her for […]

DIY Tree Art

DIY Tree Art

Before our family room makeover, I used to have this gold tree thing hanging above the sofa with pictures around it. Never liked it all that much, but I held onto it – I had a hunch it could work one day…with a little spray paint or something. That day came yesterday! I’ve had this […]

December Craft Night: Wintery Goodness


Like I said before…I am SO behind this year! Craft Night was almost two weeks ago, and I’m just now finding the time to share these goodies with you! I shared my wreath last week that I made, but here’s some awesomesauce from my girlfriends for ya! Check out this amazing reindeer – a paper […]

Christmas Chalkboard


You might remember my Fall chalkboard? The one with all the Fall words? Once upon a time, it was just a boring brass picture frame. I spray painted the glass insert with a few coats of chalkboard spray paint, and painted the frame a nice blue-grey color. Makes for the perfect seasonal decor, as I […]
