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.

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 […]

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

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 […]

When You Just Can’t Take Pink Tile Anymore: Painting my Bathroom Floor

We’re just gonna go ahead and stick this one in the “WHY THE HECK DIDN’T I DO THIS SOONER???” column. I mean, seriously people. I’ve been living with this for a DECADE now, and haven’t done anything about it. And it wasn’t hard, expensive, or time consuming?! I know, I’m scratching my head, too. As […]

If It Ain’t Broke…The Search for the Perfect Bedroom Color is Over. For Now.

Oh you guys. I’ve been trying SO hard. For what seems like forever, I’ve been on the hunt for THE perfect bedroom color. Lucky for me, I’ve got about a jillion and one paint samples in my laundry room, so it’s not hard to slap some shades on the wall. I knew I wanted to […]
