$20 Thrift Store Challenge – March

$20 Thrift Store Challenge – March
Last month I took twenty bucks to the thrift store and challenged myself to see how much stuff I could get. It was way fun. Click here to go see that post if you missed it. It was SO much fun, I decided to make it a monthly thing for the ol’ blog here. I’ve always ...

Farmhouse Friday

Welcome to another rendition of Farmhouse Friday – Spring Edition! In light of it being the first (and very welcomed) first day of Spring, I thought I would focus on lots of outdoor farmhouse inspiration! Living in NE Ohio, we don’t exactly have the longest summer, so we’ve learned to make the MOST of what ...

Vintage Racing Room Reveal

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

Painted Foyer and Stairwell
A few weeks ago, on a frightful snowy Saturday, my husband and I spent the. whole. bloody. day painting our stairwell and foyer. We thought it would only take one coat. Ha. Ha. Ha. No. When we bought our house 4 years ago, it was painted a yellow and unfortunately this color just doesn’t work with ...

Farmhouse Serving Tray
My scrap wood pile is out of control. Because I live in the arctic and don’t currently have a heated garage or workshop, I have to do all my projects in the basement. This is a less than ideal situation. My laundry “room” is also in my basement. As a matter of fact, my miter box ...

Announcing NEW Online Store!
Ok- So. I JUST opened my Etsy shop. But here’s the thing. Etsy limits me to only selling certain things….and I don’t like limitations. I’m a “the sky is the limit” kinda gal. I’m also a “go big or go home” kinda gal. And I’m going big. Real big. With the INCREDIBLE support of my good ...

Formal Living Room

Formal Living Room
I feel like this room has taken me 4,821,934 years to complete. I might be off by a year or two though. You ever have a project that just seems to drag on and on and on and on!? This was THAT project. It became the house “catch all” while it was under improvement. And. ...

DIY HUGE Kitchen Island

DIY HUGE Kitchen Island
In case you haven’t caught on by now, I am DIY obsessed. And when I run out of things to DIY in my own house….I just move onto my family members houses. Which works out well for them, I reckon. My sister, Amy is a crazy excellent cook. Cooking is to her what design and ...
