Wow, feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve done a round-up post…not sure why?! When I realized it’s the last day of June today, I thought maybe I should bring the round-up posts back. I mean, we’re all busy people living our busy lives and I’m sure you don’t check this page every day…or every week…or […]

Turn An Everyday Kitchen Stool Into a Farmhouse Style Nightstand…and Some Other Stuff…

Do you have a tiny bedroom? How about a tiny budget? A fan of the whole farmhouse-y/old-looking/rustic thing? If so, I have a solution for you! I know, not *exactly* what you had in mind, huh? Hear me out. If you give it a layer of your favorite blue flat finish paint (chalk paint/chalky finish […]

Chalkboard Fridge Update

I finally tackled something that has been on the To-Do List forever. Like, we’re talking YEARS. It wasn’t an expensive project, and didn’t take long, so once I saw what a huge improvement it made, I could KICK MYSELF! One of the very first posts I ever wrote was on our Chalkboard Fridge: Back when […]

A Sweet Little Space for The Dollhouse Room

As you probably know by now, I’ve been refreshing my kids’ rooms lately. My son’s room got a little update, my oldest daughter’s bold colors turned more subdued, and my middle baby’s room turned into a dollhouse feel with that scalloped wall – which I honestly didn’t even think about when I started creating that […]

Christmas Master Bedroom…After All These Years

Christmas bedroom

I finally did something I’ve been wanting to do YEAR AFTER YEAR… …decorate our bedroom for Christmas! Every single year since I was a child, I’d see these cozy bedrooms decorated for the holidays in magazines. I was always drawn to them and I did my best to replicate, with a little tree in my […]

So, I feel like a broken record, buuuuttttt….I was at Hobby Lobby the other day… (you really can’t blame me – they are KILLING. IT. these days…and also in my defense, it was the same day I was there getting the frame for my shiplap project) and spotted this garland of cotton. AND it was […]

Customizing New Crates to Look Old…or something?

Um, wasn’t sure what to title this one, as you can probably guess. It’ll make sense once you’ve read the post…I hope. 😉 Let me explain… So I bought two of those unfinished crates from Michaels (actually, I bought one – I already had one in storage for YEARS now, waiting to do a project […]

Making a Free Nightstand: The Suitcase Table

Sharing another glimpse into the ‘so-close-yet-so-far-away’ master bedroom today. We were going full steam, then life seemed to get in the way. Only two more things to do, but they’re kinda big projects. I’m hoping I’ll be writing my big reveal post sometime in the next couple weeks, but we shall see… In the meantime, […]

$15 DIY Rustic Ladder

Recently I was at a client’s house, and she asked what she could put on the side of her fireplace. There’s an empty spot that could use something tall(ish), and she already had a floor plant in a nearby corner. I suggested a ladder to hang throw blankets on – they’re so cozy, super cute, […]
