The other day, while trying to get the Christmas tree out of the attic, I came to the realization that I need to stop buying new projects until I get done with, or rid of, the old ones. I have about thirty projects just waiting for me to finish them. Dressers, desks, chairs, tables, picture frames - . . .
Yesterday was Makeover Monday and I missed it. Blame it on the all-day-long headache, or that it was Monday after a lovely four day weekend, or that I got my new camera and that was all I could focus on (get it, "focus" on? I kill myself!) ... whatever. I missed it. But, now, I'm going to post about . . .
Don't get excited by the title, it wasn't crazy in a Girls Gone Wild kind of way, but as-in an insanely busy weekend! I started the weekend off by posting a bunch of furniture and home goods on Craigslist. I've been tripping over all the stuff that was in the old house that doesn't fit in the new . . .
When we moved in to our house in June, the yard was a blank slate. Well, not really a blank slate, more of an overgrown, unplanned, unloved jungle. Our house is on 5 acres, which is fenced off to make three separate paddocks, and about one and a half acres in the middle where our house sits. Around . . .
There is nothing I like more than to save money. It makes me a little giddy when I find a sweet deal on something I need, as opposed to just something I want. Today, I went to Faith Farm to find a bedside table for my son's room. No luck at all. But I did find some lanterns with potential, and they . . .
When we first looked at our new house, I loved the natural light that filled it. What I didn't like were all the light fixtures. Every one of them were builder-grade, and the cheapest ones at that. There were "pimple" light globes in the bathrooms, hallways and even our bedroom. Every . . .
The laundry room re-do is done!! In case you don't remember, because it was really not memorable at all, this is what it looked like last week. Boring. Bland. A little depressing. But now, after many days of work, and lots of energy spent, this is our new laundry room! We replaced the . . .
Laundry Room Before and Inspiration I've been working on our laundry room! Finally. When we moved here, it was one of the first things I wanted to do, but it kept getting put off because of the nine hundred other things that took priority over it, like getting the water system working. This is the . . .
Kids Easy Bathroom Update As much as I hate to admit it, I am not the most creative designer on the planet, but I am pretty good at taking an idea and making changes to it so that it works for me. This easy bathroom update was done with just paint, new decor and a cute new shower . . .
I love to re-invent things. Whether it be an ugly chair, or a desk that has seen better days. Which is why, when we were looking for a new house, I didn't shy away from the ones that weren't "pretty". My husband wanted a house with more than a quarter of an acre, and in this area of South Florida, . . .
