How to add character to your garage door (in 5 minutes and for less than $20!)

We’ve been working on our fixer upper house for quite a while now.  You have no idea how much of an improvement just this view of this side of the house is after removing over 40+ bushes from the front and this side of the house, and getting the house painted.  But it was still looking […]

DIY Farmhouse Style Wood High Chair Makeover

Last spring when I was making a list of all the baby things I needed to buy or find for our little girl, a highchair was definitely on the list.  I didn’t want a plastic/bulky free standing one that just wouldn’t fit in the style of my home so I was going to go with […]

Painting the inside of the front door black

I have wanted to do this for a long time – I even debated doing it in our last house but never did.  I asked on facebook a few weeks ago what you thought about painting the inside of our front doors black and the verdict was pretty much unanimous to do it.   And […]

Garden Bench Makeover

Ack!  Sorry for the unplanned blog silence.  I had intended to take a week off after completing the $100 One Room Challenge but one week accidently turned into two.  Actually I have been quite busy with tons of yard work (trimming trees, planting, spreading a truck load of mulch, and clearing and making new beds), […]

Little Pink Rocking Chair

Last spring when I was wanting to prepare for baby and decorate her room but we hadn’t moved yet, I kept myself busy by packing of course, but also by trying to go ahead and find and DIY some things for her room.  Like this DIY chicken wire hair bow holder.    Another thing I […]

Guest bedroom at our first home

Hi everyone!  I have been working on editing pictures and writing some posts last week and over the weekend so I hope to have lots to share with you in the coming days.  First I wanted to go back and finish off posting about rooms in our previous home.  I want to compile before/during/after pictures […]

I am so excited to share the first before/after of our new house!  You can catch up on why we moved plus an update post and an entire before tour of the empty house is coming soon – hopefully next week. I don’t know about you, but when I am in the midst of major […]

Use paint to create a fresh start in your home this year

Whew… let’s just say if I had to pick a word for the year it would be “CHANGE.”  I think at this point it may be easier to list the things that won’t change in the coming months or year instead of the things that will.    But change can be good and I am […]
