Oh boy, what a week it has been! Here's an update on the bathroom update and floor progress. Tile throughout the house was demolished on Monday and Tuesday, as was the bathroom. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday brought 4 different tile guys to lay the tile. Yes, four. The "tile guy" we originally . . .
I'm so excited to say that we have finally started work on the new wood tile floors! As I've said before, we chose to go with tile that looks like wood throughout the house. We bought the tile months ago, but then saved our pennies for the installation costs. And it's finally time! And we are going . . .
Herringbone Headboard - tutorial Holy Moley People! This DIY Herringbone Headboard is perhaps the coolest thing we've ever made! If you follow me on Facebook, you probably saw some pictures that showed us trying to use pallets to make a headboard for my son. Well, that was a big, fat FAIL! . . .
Some big changes are coming to our house. If you read this post about dark floors and white walls, you might have an idea of the kinds of changes we plan on taking on. First up, we decided to replace all the tile in our house. The tile in the house is cracked throughout and kind of bland .It's . . .
When I painted our front doors last week, I noticed what a mess the rest of the porch was when I was trying to take pictures for the post. I decided to take action and finish the front porch makeover that I should have done ages ago. The cushions on the chairs were mildewed and faded. There . . .
This past weekend, I attended the Haven Conference. It was fabulous... yadda, yadda, yadda. I'll post about it later - maybe. It's a really great place to meet vendors, one of which was Modern Masters. I've met them before at SNAP!, and they were wonderful. They make some really cool special effects . . .
Remember last year when we had our pool re-done? A comment on another post made me realize that I never did post about the finished project of the pool and backyard makeover. Part of the reason for that is that we haven't finished doing anything with the deck. I guess I was waiting until we finished . . .

Happy St. Patricks Day! In my family, we have a few Patricks - my dad, my brother and my nephew are all named Patrick - and my son's middle name is Patrick too. I'm waking up my little guy this morning with a bagel covered in green cream cheese! He's either going to love it, or think it's . . .
An Inexpensive Update for a Tired Kitchen For as long as we've been living in this house, I have disliked our kitchen. I didn't like the color of the cabinets, and the copper accents all over didn't really go with the rest of the house (drawer pulls, pot hanger, etc). While we worked on the rest of . . .
