Jave Gel Stained Banister: One Year Update

Hey guys! So if you saw my last post, I’m catching up on catching YOU up on some past projects. Did that make sense?! I thought it’d be helpful if you saw how some of the updates I’ve done around here are holding up. I talked about the beadboard wallpaper first, and today it’s the banister’s […]

Beadboard Wallpaper: Two And A Half Years Later…

We still have a few weeks left in our Summer here, which means my blog is experiencing its “Down Season.” Not many projects going on over here, with the kiddies home and our days spent at the pool. Fall will be here soon enough though, and it’s always bittersweet. I always crave Summer’s relaxing, easy […]

June 2017 Roundup!

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 […]

I Got Three More….An Update on the Gallery Wall

Remember that post I did – with the awesome Walmart frames I fell in love with? I bought six, loved them, and wrote in the post that I might just go snag three more? Well I did. I wasn’t sure if nine would be too many, but oh my word, NOPE! I mean, these faces. […]

Fiddling Around The Family Room

One of my very favorite things to do is fiddle around my house.  I just go around, moving some things from this room to that, looking at things in storage for inspiration…it doesn’t cost a dime, and yet I feel like everything is suddenly new and fresh when I’m done. It always brings me joy. If […]

Spray Painted Bed…AGAIN

Those of you who’ve been with me for a while might remember that awesome brass yard sale headboard I scored a few years ago… …FOR TWENTY DOLLARS! I knew with some spray paint this would be such a cutie for my daughter’s bedroom. (You can check out that post right here). And it was perfect. […]

5 Minute Lampshade Upgrade

This might be one of my quickest posts in ND history. In fact, I don’t even have a ‘during’ shot for you – it was over that quickly. You know I’ve been sprucing up my little girl’s bedroom, and a she had a very basic, blah lamp on her “nightstand” (really just an old stool;). […]
