Build a Custom Frame out of Trim Pieces!
Good Tuesday to you! How’s your eternal winter treating you? Did you catch that Frozen reference? I think when I posted about our epic comforter fail in our bedroom, it reminded me how neglected that room has been since then... and I’ve found myself adding little things to warm it up! We had this foam-core print of the girls from their newborn photoshoot with the fabulous Molly Long, and ... [ Read More ]
Custom Closet Shelving ~ A Tutorial!
So we live in this OLD house, right? And apparently 112 years ago, storage solutions weren’t on the forefront of home-builders’ minds. Because our old farm house is without a single coat closet, linen closet… and pantry (until we made our own). But instead of complaining about our LACK of storage, I should just be grateful that we even have closets in our bedrooms! Because we’re pretty sure they ... [ Read More ]

She’s Got Swag
A looooooooong time ago when we painted this backsplash, the homeowners Stan and Sue gave us a tour of their lovely home... and I comment on how I loved their vintage swag lamps in their living room. It was meant to just be a compliment... but they proceeded to remark, "those old things? We just bought new lights to put in their place. Do ya want the old ones?" ...ummmm, yes please?

A Few Dilemma’s Addressed
For some time now, I've been really itching to tackle another room in our home. The only rooms I feel are done are the nursery and the kitchen... (and the kitchen could really still use some new appliances, flooring, and the washer and dryer needs to be moved OUT of my pantry so I have room for our month's worth of food). And since we're on a serious budget, designing and updating our home has ... [ Read More ]
