Napoleonic Blue Chair Makeover

We have been painting quite a bit getting ready for Chapel Market in a few weeks, and while some of the makeovers go with our “theme” this year, some have been just for fun. Enter our sad little chair–it had been sitting in the back for at least a year, untouched and [...]

Kitchen Reveal

It seems like half a lifetime ago when I first mentioned working on the kitchen.  The bulk of the work was done in a couple of weeks, but we took our time finding the right hardware and breadboards and you know, the important things. Waaay back in the day of 2003-2009ish, our kitchen [...]

Playroom/Homeschool Room Sources

Happy Monday morning to you, friends! I’ve been dealing with some internet issues this morning since 6 a.m., so I have to say, I’m less chipper than usual this fine day.  If I get this post out to you, it’ll be a good day.  A GOOD day, I tell you. We’re back [...]

Pool House Makeover

Today is filled with organizing and preparing the playroom for school.  I’ll be filing and sorting and tossing old worksheets and getting puzzle pieces reunited. It’ll be the best and worst kind of day.  Worst in that I’m sure I’ll step on a million lego [...]

Living Room Updates

If you are new to our blog, you may not have seen the Red Sea that enveloped our living room in the year 2003… I want to say again there’s nothing wrong with red or brown, but even if I’d wanted to do red and brown, maybe I should have thrown a different color in [...]

Trunk Side Table Makeover

Morning, lovely people. I canceled my dentist appointment…again.  I know, random.  But, I may need to know there are other “cancelers” out there like me.  Woke up with a crazy headache and I couldn’t imagine them digging around in my head for an hour and a half. [...]

Top 10 Home Projects of 2013

2013 came and went in a blur. I mean, truly.  It was insane to say the least, the shop growing and taking up more time, and the homeschooling of both kids…and continuing to write and work on our house as we wanted. We even started work on my parents’ beach condo this year, [...]

Milk Paint Dresser Makeover

I have a new love. It’s not chocolate, and it’s not shoes, and it’s not even throw pillows. It’s Milk Paint.  Marian’s Milk Paint, to be exact. I always liked milk paint, but I had not used it enough to really love it.  I wanted to carry her paint, [...]

Coastal Bedroom Updates

With all the rain at the beach, we got a lot of little projects done at the condo last week.  Remember what our bedroom looked like before… Some of the furniture was beautiful, just a little orange and dated, so it was staying with a little updating.  We have several steps [...]

FAQ’s: Writing Room & Playroom

We are home from hanging in the room on the gulf coast, and while I wish we were out in the sun, the rain there forced some pretty special couch-cuddling, game-playing, lego-building moments.  We hope you and yours had a happy 4th, too! Since December 2009, when I started this blog, [...]

Guest Bath Update: Marble Tile

Good Monday morning, to you, friends! We spent the weekend at the pool & finishing up a lot of work in the guest bathroom. A few weeks ago, I asked our Instagram friends about tile choices because we loved both so much. After quite a bit of debate, we went with the marble!  Both [...]
