DIY Fall Wreath

DIY Fall Wreath - on door

When I posted about our fresh new front door paint, you got a peek at the new Fall Wreath I made and I promised to share details later. Well, it is a month later and I’m just getting to sharing the details.  Truth is, I kept thinking I would finish decorating the front porch for […]

Fabric Stool

1-fabric stool - before and after

As is typical with my projects, it started on a normal Saturday morning.  I was out yard sale shopping, and on my way to my target area, I stumbled into some interesting yard sales. At the one stop, some items had prices and some didn’t.  The items that were priced seemed reasonable.  So, when I […]

Front Door  - after

Cute Clothespin Basket

1-Cute Clothespin Basket

It’s been quite a while since I worked on a project for myself.  Since we are in transition, it is just challenging to have any “real” projects to do.  So, that probably explains why I took the opportunity to make a cute clothespin basket for myself.  There was a clothesline pole here at the house […]

Yard Sale Strategy

1-Yard Sale Header

So, if you have been around for even a minute – hopefully it has been longer than that you know that I’m a yard sale addict!  I like nothing more than to get up on Saturday morning, eat a quick breakfast, throw on some comfy clothes, drink my coffee and head out the door to […]

Guest Room Reveal

Guest Room Reveal

It’s a bit strange and funny to me that I’m writing a guest room reveal for a house I no longer live in!  But, that’s my reality.  I only managed to barely get the guest room done in time for Bob to take the pictures of our house for the real estate listing.  And, then […]

Pretty Blue Chair

1-DIY Chair Makeover

I had bought this single chair at a yard sale, it was cheap – $1.50.  I can’t pass that up.  I knew I would be able to make it look pretty.  Don’t judge the disastrous state of my workroom at that point!! I was craving something different, specifically color.  So many of my pieces end […]

Welcoming Guest Rooms


  Our Guest Room has been a work-in-progress for a while now, so as I was working on it, I compiled a board of inspiring and welcoming Guest Room’s on Hometalk.  I really enjoyed searching for ideas to help shape what I did in our Guest Room. My friend, Charlotte, at Ciburbanity, has a great […]

On the Move

1-were moving

    I know I’ve basically disappeared for the last two months, if not most of the winter, but it is for good reason – We’re moving! I’m sure you hadn’t already figured that out from the title and the image    Most people that know us personally take the “We’re Moving” conversation as a […]

Fresh New Guest Room Dresser

1-Guest Room Dresser Makeover

As in past years, I am just terrible at blogging in winter – see here and here.   In previous years, I think I just didn’t even work on projects.  I can’t say that this year, as I have worked on many projects, with the majority of them being either for clients or for selling my […]
