The Boy’s Room Makeover!

Well, I’m finally going to reveal my stepson’s room today.  I started his room pretty much exactly 1 year ago, but that doesn’t mean it took me that long to finish it.  It’s actually been done for quite some time, but I just haven’t written about it yet. :)  He is in the tween years […]

Our New White, Pink, and Grey Bedroom

Yes it’s true. Our master bedroom has undergone a few changes yet again.  When I started using the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint toward the end of last year, I couldn’t stop.  And I ended up painting all of our furniture in our bedroom white.  And then I decided to go pink and grey with the […]

The Breakfast Room Makeover

Hi everyone!  I started the breakfast room redo a few months ago (maybe more), and finally just finished it.  Hooray for several month long projects! ;) Here is the before, of when I redid it the last time… I got tired of the Tobacco Road and repainted the kitchen (Sherwin Williams Balanced Beige) to go […]

The Great Outdoors {The Patio Reveal}

I don’t think I’ve ever shown you all our patio, and we actually have a nice one!  We had it added on about 2 years ago.  Having a patio is pretty much a must in Texas, and when we bought our home all that was there was a tiny little square piece of concrete, and […]

Master Bedroom Makeover (Again)

I’m beyond excited to show you our new master bedroom…again!  I explained in this post why I decided to change it up again. But the biggest change in here was just paint.  Paint is your friend, and a cheap friend.  When I redid our master bedroom back in June last year, I did love that […]

A Dining Room Turned Office

*Update–the office now has wood floors!* Dining rooms are so overrated right? :)  Since I had been wanting to redo the dining room for quite some time now, the hubby and I decided to turn it into an office.  Because in all honesty, the formal dining room was used as an actual dining room maybe […]

The Famous Pantry Carousels…Not Just For Your Pantry: Under Sink Makeover

I had another horribly unorganized place in our home…under the kitchen sink.  I was scared every time I opened those cabinets.  I was afraid something might come crawling out.  Luckily though, that never happened. :) Soooo, remember the carousels my Dad put in our pantry makeover and he also talked about them here?  Well, I finally […]

A Cute Little $5 Bench

I found this bench at the thrift store for $5.  Can you believe that??  I thought it was so adorable, but my husband, ummm notsomuch.  He seriously wanted to put it by the curb for trash pick up.  Shame on him! And I’m sorry, this has to probably be one of the worst “before” photos […]

How To: Fake Wainscoting

Remember my “Difference Molding Can Make” post?  If you don’t, I’ll be nice and show you the after picture again when we put up the chair rail and framed boxes… I liked it, but wanted to try something different.  We have textured walls, so I was a little scared to try this, but I have […]

What I Created Out of an Old Drawer

Remember this drawer I found for a buck at the resale shop? Well, I got to thinking how this would make a great candle holder! Then my instinct was right, and stumbled upon this lovely color of spray paint… Ohhh Catalina Mist, how I love you!   I saw this shade at Hobby Lobby and […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 wanted to give a quick tutorial on how I made these rosettes for the lamps in our master bedroom redo. I’m sure I am not the first person to do it this way, but all of the tutorials I saw included tying a knot and using a pencil, and/or some sort of sewing was […]

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 […]

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, […]
