Our little laundry room was pretty blaaah when we first moved here. It is a great space, although a little snug. The laundry chute is a life saver and the cabinet and built-in storage is great. The two metal boxes are connected to a very old security system. That eyesore and the fact that there… Continue reading Laundry Room Update
Back to School!!! Our kids started the school year August 2nd. That seems so early, I know! But they do get several breaks throughout the year, which I love, so I don’t mind. Wouldn’t matter if I hated it because that’s when school started! I have found that having snack boxes in our pantry comes… Continue reading Easy Snack Storage
I recently purchased two rugs that I really love from Old Time Pottery. They were each 5ft x 7ft and at $35 each, a price low enough that I can feel comfortable buying two. One is in an extremely high-traffic area: under our kitchen table. I want this area to feel cozy and also to… Continue reading Scotchgard It!
Hello..it’s been a while! Summer is in full swing here and I am loving the combination of leisure and chaos that is summertime with little ones! That, by default, limits my projects, but I’m okay with that. Actually I love that. We soak up the extra time together as a family and I try to… Continue reading Painting an Outdoor Light
I’ve had a minor dilemma in our kitchen that was bugging me. I got this sweet and unusual octagonal table from my great aunt recently that my parents also had in our home at one point. I refinished the top of it with Restor A Finish a few months ago and we’ve been using it in… Continue reading Improving our kitchen table

I do love the look of red brick, especially inside, so I wasn’t particularly eager to change that. But I didn’t love the brass surround, so that’s… Continue reading Fireplace Surround
Since our daughter moved schools in the middle of the year, and the move was the biggest adjustment for her, I wanted to get her room in good shape first off. It was important to me for her room to feel comfortable and organized so she could feel at home. Also, I wanted it to… Continue reading Iron Bed
Yesterday marked one month since we moved into our new home! I have taken a break from painting for others, but my creative juices have not stopped flowing! There are fun little projects all over the place at our house that I am getting to tackle. The to-do list is long. But whose isn’t? Yesterday… Continue reading Change is Good!
It’s 2017! I think many people seem to feel like 2016 was a bad year. I don’t think it was bad, at all. It went super fast. Like, scary, I am so glad I take so many pictures or I wouldn’t remember it even happened, fast. But it was a good year for me! As… Continue reading What’s Next?
