If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I love nothing more than decorating on the thrifty side. When I can create something for a fraction of the cost of buying it at a store, I get so excited. This project is one of those. And I can’t wait to share it with you, […]

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 […]

A Second Dresser Makeover for My Girl’s Room

dresser makeover

Long time no blog! I’ve missed you so:) Those of you who follow my Facebook page know the scoop, but for those who don’t, I had surgery last week to remove that lump. Apparently even though my biopsy was all clear, my immunologist wanted to get it out and check out the tissue to be […]

DIY Ribbon Garland

This is one of the easiest but sweetest (and thriftiest!) little projects – seriously, anyone can do this one, and it’ll only set you back about ten bucks! If you can tie a piece of ribbon in a knot, you got this. My ten year old (with the help of her 9 year old sister) […]

Dresser Makeover For My Girl’s Room

The power of paint, people. It’s ASTOUNDING. Take a look at this dresser before: And after some paint and new hardware, take a look at it now: Did you ever think she had it in her to look that cute?! Let me backtrack for a sec. If you read my last post, you’re aware we’re […]

So I made a pillow for my daughter’s bedroom the other day. Can we just stop and let THAT sink in for a moment – I MADE A PILLOW. ME. I know, you can lift your jaws up off the floor along with me now. Miss Queen of All Things No-Sew. Believe, no one is more […]

The Project That Took My Breath Away, and THE Cutest, Budget-Friendly Picture Frames

When we moved into our house 11 years ago, we removed quite a few walls. Then last summer, we decided to take down one more. It’s awesome, and never for one second have we EVER regretted it – in fact, it’s just the opposite…but there is one – and ONLY one – negative thing about having […]

A New Look for An Old Ottoman (and My Son’s Room!)

ottoman makeover

My son had been asking me to rearrange his room. LIKE CONSTANTLY. He had a definite idea in mind, and to tell you the truth, I wasn’t wild about it. I love walking into a room and seeing the bed as the focal point, and in this new setup, the bed would be coming out […]

Stepping Outside My Box and Glammin’ It Up For My Sister: Her Bench Makeover

bench makeover

I was over my sister’s place a few months back, helping her with some decorating. She really wants to change things up and embrace a total 1940s glam look. Helping her has been a fun challenge, because we couldn’t be more different when it comes to our tastes in our home decor, so it’s like stepping […]

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 […]
