A Book Makeover! Yes, A Book Makeover…

This was probably the easiest little project I’ve done to date.  But it’s sooo cute!! I had these 2 books that I got at a resale shop recently… Well I took that blue one and fixed her up! First I spray painted it Heirloom White.  I did tape around all of the pages so I […]

More Flower Pot Cuteness

I did another little project over the weekend with the 4 remaining little flower pots I found at the thrift store recently.  You can click here for that post. We have this area above our front door in the entryway… So I decided to use my 4 little pots and sit them on the ledge […]

My Prized Possessions…Hutch and Buffet Redo

Have you inherited an ugly piece of furniture whenever you got married?  I have.  It was our dining room buffet table.  I’ve lived with it for 4 years now, and it was time for an overhaul when I found this hutch at Goodwill to go on top of it. Goodwill had it marked for $99, […]

Well, I Thought I Had an Original Idea…

…until I did a search on Google and saw that these have been made…like all over the place!  I should have never searched to make sure.  What a buzz-kill!  It was just too clever that someone other than me thought this idea up.  Haha.  But, I’m still going to show you! So, remember one of […]

More Thrifty Finds

Went to a local resale shop and scored all of these old mason jars! This one is particularly old with the off-centered “Perfect Mason” and original zinc lid. Who knows, maybe this jar is worth loads of cash and I can retire my husband.   Yea, I know that’s unlikely but it’s ok for me […]

Front Porch Facelift

First of all, I don’t really think what we have is considered a “porch” but I didn’t know what else to call it.  Entryway, walkway, or is it a porch? So, here is our porch (or entryway, walkway?) before.  And this picture was from December when it snowed because I was a bad blogger and […]

My Numbered Flower Pots!

Remember these pots I found at the thrift store recently?  Well part of sprucing up my front porch included painting them.  I haven’t done the small pots yet…those are for inside the house, I think. So I painted them Rustoleum satin black.  I don’t have pictures of that because that is pretty self explanatory. :) […]

Rosette Lamps With Easy Tutorial

I Finally Made a Wreath!

My front door has been so naked without anything on it.  I don’t know why wreaths stress me out, but they do.  Then once I do it, it’s SO easy.  But all of those aisles at Hobby Lobby with strands of greenery and flowers everywhere just makes me nervous.  I’m a dork, I know.  I […]

$5 Thrift Store Chair

When I went to the thrift store recently, I stumbled upon 2 of these great rush chairs.  And for $5 each!!  They were in great condition and solid construction too.  The rushing could stand to be redone as it’s a little worn, but I have NO clue how to do that, and this isn’t the […]

Ikea Goodness

Me and the hubs took our daughter to Ikea today. I know, wasn’t that nice of us?  I haven’t been in a while and it’s only 30 minutes away.  I felt like we were tourists though. I wanted to get some inspiration for our tv nook area to see if anything tickled my fancy.  But […]

Decorating Help Needed

I’d love to hear some suggestions on decorating our t.v. nook in our family room.   I’m talking about the wall the t.v. is on, and the wall around it.  I know part of the redo involves painting over the faux finish inside the nook.  I’m so over it!   But what color to paint? […]

Easy Wall Art

Painted Nightstands

Part of the master bedroom redo involved updating these nightstands.  These are actually living room end tables, but we use them as our nightstands.  They serve their purpose, they are pretty (now they are), and they were free!  I’ve actually had them many years. They came with my furniture set my mom bought for me […]

Lace Bottles

I was inspired by a picture I saw in my Flea Market style magazine.  It was a picture of a vase wrapped partially in a doily.  Doilies are popping up everywhere!  Now, I didn’t have any doilies on hand, but I did have some white lace fabric left over from another project. Here is the […]

The Difference Molding Can Make

I love molding (moulding?).  I want it everywhere in our house.  Why don’t builders make it a standard feature instead of an upgrade?  I think the housing market would be much better if so.  :) I first added it to a big entry wall which also adjoins the family room.  Here is the wall before, […]

Dollar Store hurricanes

Have you seen these candle holders from Williams Sonoma before?  Aren’t they pretty?  Way too pricey though.   Here is a knock off version that will cost you only $2 to make! I first saw this idea from Get Your Martha On when she made her version here.  They looked so beautiful so I just […]

Concealing the clutter

Do you have an entertainment center that has glass cabinets like we do?  The kind where you can see all the junk gaming systems, unorganized DVD’s, and anything else that landed in there?  Well, I hate clutter as much as I hate roaches.  Actually, I am terrified of roaches, but that’s for a different post […]

Accessorize your accessories

I like to dress up things around the house.  Adding just a little pop of something small to an accessory is just, well…cute! It’s no secret I love ribbons and bows. I have them in several spots.  I love big fat bows on a lamp shade. I love ribbon on vases. I love starfish too. […]

Warning, this is kind of a long post, but y’all like pictures and how-to’s right?  Okay, good. :) Our breakfast room used to look like this… Please take note of the extremely low curtain rod, high water drapes, and the breakfast table too big for the breakfast room.

Chalkboards are a great way to add that touch of coziness in any room of your home.  It’s a fun way to write sweet notes, honey-do’s, your favorite scripture, the dinner menu, and the list goes on.  They are also very inexpensive to make which makes them even better.  I buy the chalkboard spray paint […]

I’ve had this knife block forever. I think my mom got it for me when I moved into my first apartment?  Anyway, it’s OLD, that’s all I know. And you can definitely tell it’s old when you look closely at the knife handles with the cracked and missing pieces. :) But that’s okay because we […]

Well, this is my very first post, so I’ll just get right to it! I have to give a little background on our home. We moved into a new construction home at the end of 2008. It’s a 2-story, open concept floor plan. I loved it, and knew it was ours when we came to […]
