Welcome Spring sign

Are you as ready for spring as I am?  I always start getting that spring fever come the middle of February when we are teased with a few warmer days here in the South and long for when they are here to stay.  Of course this year spring teased us a bit in February and […]

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 […]

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), […]

Early Spring Front Porch

I am a DecoArt Core blogger for 2016-2017.  This post and paint is sponsored by DecoArt, but all opinions and styling are all mine! 🙂 Happy 1st day of Spring!!  We have had some crazy weather here in the south the last few months – from 70 degree temps pretty much the whole months of […]

Spring mantel (plus how to stage your mantel to sell your house)

Hello, hello!  Yes I am still alive.  A bit buried in a cloud of yellow pollen, stacks of boxes, and a to-do list that has actually become a to-do notebook at this point.   I hopefully will have a house/moving update post for you very soon but want to make sure things are truly officially […]

Sprucing up the outdoors for Spring with spray paint

With the arrival of spring, out comes the gardening gloves and shovels, the rake and broom, the pressure washer, and yes… the spray paint! We finally had some days without rain last week and I pretty much emptied my whole front porch onto the driveway and got to refreshing it all with some spray paint.  […]

Hang large items on the wall with NO tools and NO drywall anchor holes to patch with the Amazing Monkey Hook

(This isn’t a sponsored post – The Amazing Monkey Hook people have no idea who I am.  Just sharing about a product I love and a tip I thought you could use!) I have been doing a lot more painting recently – almost done painting our huge 2 story stairway and upstairs hallway and I […]

Fixing up the outdoors for fall with the help of Rubbermaid Roughneck products

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Rubbermaid but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #FallFixUp http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV Fall… that season that I think every southerner longs for by the first of September and a summer long of 90+ degree temperatures.  The cooler temperatures are still […]

Outdoor light fixture change-up

Can’t wait to show you some bigger changes that have happened outside this year but they are all still in process.  But here is a small change that I accomplished yesterday.  This light fixture was looking quite sad and definitely not doing any good for the curb appeal of the house.  Plus not sure if […]

Bringing in Spring in the Living Room

Spring means two things in our home – spring cleaning + refreshing/bringing in spring indoors by adding color/new décor/plants/flowers inside. A trip to Home Depot enabled me to pick up all the things on my list and I got my living room ready for spring in no time.  I picked up some Mr. Clean with […]
