table lamp makeover

This goes under the category my husband likes to call “Things Only Liz Would Do” – Buying a Brand New Lamp With The Intention of Painting It Immediately. 😉 I do this stuff a lot. And my husband always laughs. “Who buys something just to go around and change it?” Ummm hellloooo? Have we just met?! […]

When You Decorate for Valentine’s Day…on Valentine’s Day.

Valentine's Day decor

Happy Valentine’s Day, all! So…I have a confession to make. I wasn’t even really planning on decorating this year. I just wasn’t feeling it for some reason. Well, I guess I do know the reasons if I think about it. It was a combination of my mind not being in a decorating place much this […]

The Other $5 Table Makeover

Before I say anything else – I need to say a huge Thank You. I should have started off my last post with it and I was remiss. For all your love, kindness, and support regarding my Scary Month post – for sharing your stories with me, for telling me that my words helped lift […]

Five Dollar Nightstand Makeover

$5 table makeover

You know I love me a thrifty yard sale project! Today’s post is no exception – when I saw this table on a local yard sale page, I knew I needed to grab it. In fact, I grabbed two – one is slightly different, and haven’t made that one over yet, but you know I’ll […]

A Health Update After a Scary Month…

CVID: health update

Hello friends. And I do mean that:) I feel like I’ve gotten to know so many of you through this blog – when I sit down at this laptop and start typing, I always feel like I’m about to talk to old friends. It never feels like an obligation, or anything other than sitting down […]

Up until about 5 days ago, I still had our Christmas greens wreath up on the front door, sporting the word ‘merry’ across it. Bad little blogger, I know, but I just didn’t have anything to go up – I have a spring wreath, but too soon for that. And then it hit me! I […]

Those of you who’ve been with me a while might remember My Dollar Tree Mirror Art? That time I used command strips and twelve mirrors from my local Dollar Tree to create this big ol’ mirror in our main hallway? Wellll, of course things can’t stay the same TOO long in here, so naturally I’m […]

I just realized I never did tell you the details on our family room curtains! This is such a fun discovery, I can’t wait to tell you about it. When deciding on what to do for the curtains in here, I knew I wanted pretty basic, simple curtains. There are five windows in this room, […]

Repurposed Shelves in My Daughter’s Room…and Realizing I Need To Start Acting More Like My Mother.

DIY shelves

Remember my little DIY Coffee Bar we made a couple years ago? (By the way, how was that TWO YEARS AGO??) I loved that thing. But as all things seem to do in this house, the dining room evolved and I rearranged and things changed…I bought a mug rack that I ADORE for that spot: […]

DIY Special Dates Pillow Cover

You know how I’ve talked about my quiet, delightful walks through Hobby Lobby I used to take to kill time while my daughter was in drama class? In the Fall, I had two hours while she was there, and instead of driving 20 minutes to come home and have to go back, I’d hit up […]
