Cluttered to Chic

By |March 19th, 2010|

Oh, the built-in’s.
They are a thorn in my side, constantly nagging me to do something with them, to give them a little love as I do the rest of the house.
And yet, this is how they were looking a couple of days ago….

Just a cluttery, big mess.  […]

Those Doors Might the Death of Me….

By |March 7th, 2010|

Alright, I know it’s been awhile since I’ve given you an update on the doors.The doors turning into a daybed.  It’s because I’ve been avoiding them.Because the first time I tested out one section it was a hot mess.Even after a layer of primer, a coat of light grey, and a coat of white, the […]

Outdoor Table Before & After

By |March 6th, 2010|

I don’t spend time in places I don’t like….places that don’t relax me.Would it be fair to say that most of us are like that?  (I sure hope so or I might sound a little rude right now)I love spending time outside–when it’s picturesque.  We have a great back porch and a nice backyard….nice for eating […]

Inspiration for a Salvage Find

By |March 2nd, 2010|

You know my productive trip the other day?That’s not all we found…..I saw these spindles and knew I could come up with something great to do with them….they were only .99!  I got twelve in all.  This may be a disappointing post, because they’re still a work in progress.  But I thought I would run […]

Be Still My Heart….

**FOR VINTAGE BOOKS GIVEAWAY, GO HERE** Because this beauty now belongs to me…..She will move upstairs with me to my writing room–that’s what I’ve decided to call it for now because “office” seems so stuffy–this will be the space I write, create, breathe.  I want  that space, of all rooms, to give me inspiration and to transport me […]

Master Bedroom, part 2 and a little tease

By |February 22nd, 2010|

Aah….much better.  Now we’re getting somewhere.Remember how it looked before?In the end, I did use some bday money to get a new comforter, shams, window treatments, and a throw pillow.  I did find it all at Target so I don’t feel like I broke myself getting a fresh, much lighter bedroom space.Love the softness of […]

actual, real, time off!

By |February 22nd, 2010|

I might have the best husband out there.Really.  He graciously allowed me alone time today.  No strings attached–just real alone time.  I got to drive a whole hour away and browse an antique mall/flea market for as long as my heart desired.  I stayed there at least an hour and a half.  I scoured all […]

By |February 19th, 2010|

Ok.  Here’s the dilema.  You know how you read those articles (or blogs if you’re me) that talk about “design on a dime” or “budget decorating?”  Well, they offer great tips on spending less and making the most of your money (keep these coming, please!), like buying new throw pillows or window treatments or a new comforter,etc.  […]
