Filling an Awkward Kitchen Space with DIY Wood Shelves

Yes, it’s yet another kitchen post. That’s been consuming my days lately – other than the pool, but those days are numbered;). Coming down the homestretch though – just ordered some lights and have to finish up the paint job and that’s it, my friends! Then time to start the 87,062 projects I’m in the […]

Building Character: Extending Short Cabinets with Molding

The Upstairs Hallway: What a Difference a Weekend Makes

I got a wild hair about a month or so ago and decided to give some much needed attention to our upstairs hallway. I don’t know about you, but I tend to focus much more on the main floor of our home since that’s where we spend most of our time. And this poor hallway […]

Christmas Master Bedroom…After All These Years

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 […]

DIY Shiplap In a Frame

Hellooooo? This thing on?? First of all, if you’re still hanging in there with me, bless your heart. I know it has been a WHILE. Like, longest stretch of non-blogging in ND history, probably. This season of my life has been OUT. OF. CONTROL. I seem to remember the kids starting school in late August, […]
