Another Chapter Begins…

middle school

I caught a glimpse of you this morning. You were standing outside, waiting for the bus a few minutes early. Just like me, you woke up early with anticipation for today and had time to spare. It’s what we do. You had a bag with your sweater – in case you get chilly – and […]

The Upstairs Hallway: What a Difference a Weekend Makes

hallway makeover

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 […]

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, […]

Yet Another Look For My Husband’s Dresser

Because nothing stays the same around here for too long, I changed up my husband’s dresser…AGAIN. When we moved into our house almost 10 years ago, we bought a grown-up bedroom set and we were so excited. Look at us! We’re like, REAL ADULTS, buying a whole matching set from a REAL furniture store…like, it […]

The Dining Room at Christmastime: 2015

As you may know, our dining room has probably gone through more makeovers than any room in this house! It used to be dark, then light, then colorful, now…it has a more rustic, natural vibe. (You can see all the different looks in this post). So this year, I traded in the bright aquas and […]

I seriously cannot even believe November came and went already. I know I say this every month, but COME ON. Where did it even go?!!! It was a fun month around here – let’s recap what went down in case you missed anything, shall we? First, I shared how I painted the interior doors (and even the […]

Stick a fork in it, friends, the basement is DONE! And I can’t wait to share it with you. This is going to be a Before and After Photos Extravaganza, so get ready! There are too many pieces to this puzzle to explain every project in one post, so I’ll just show you everything and […]

September 2015 Round-Up Post

Wow, haven’t done one of these in a while! With my Summer blog break, there was really no need. I mean, a round-up on one or two posts? 😉 Not really necessary. But school’s back in session, and I got busy busy busy! Started out the month with “We Need to Talk.” I LOVED how […]

Kid Art Gallery Wall

I am currently sitting here tracking the shipment on my very last piece to the basement puzzle as we speak (or type!), and can hardly wait to share this room with you. If this particular item I ordered is as cute as it appears online, the post will be up sometime next week! Yay! In […]

The Headboard That Was Meant To Be

New headboard

First of all, thank you for your headboard opinions on my Facebook page a couple weeks ago. In case you missed all that, we recently got a new king sized bed (which in and of itself, can I just say: BEYOND. EXCITING.). So that put me in the “what the heck to pick for a headboard?” […]
