Vintage Racing Room Reveal
So, OF COURSE, I don’t have a before picture for my son’s room. I never have before pictures of anything. But I’ll paint you a visual. His room was a taupe-ish color and he had western décor. Very cowboy-esque. Wagon wheels, plaid, horse shoes. Well, a few months ago my son informed me that he ...

Painted Foyer and Stairwell

Farmhouse Dining Room
A few weeks ago, on a whim, which is how I do most things…..I swapped my living room with my dining room. The layout of our house isn’t totally ideal, and our kitchen was sooooo far away from the living room. Ok. Maybe not sooooo far away. But too far for my liking. The dining room ...

This will be short and sweet – just wanted to show y’all what I did today! 😉 I was in the mood to build today. I’m in the mood to build most days, but particularly so today. Problem was, I had nothing to build. Nothing planned anyway. So I headed out to the garage to ...
