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), […]

Guest Bathroom progress- new paint (#100roomchallenge)

Time for an update in the One Month, One Room, $100 challenge!  If you missed last weeks post, during the month of March I am taking the challenge along with 15-20 other bloggers and tackling a room makeover with a budget of $100 or less.  I am working on our guest bathroom. This is what […]

Little Pink Rocking Chair

Painted Trim in the Living Room plus before to now pictures!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape® for IZEA.  All opinions are 100% mine.

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 […]

How to Make a Personalized Stenciled Pillow

Disclosure: Post sponsored by DecoArt but choice of saying, creation of pillow, and adding another pillow to my bed was all me! 🙂 I added a fun personalized pillow to my bedroom!   And yes, see that wedding picture in the background – our “Happy Ever After” truly did begin on that day back in […]
