Sneak Peek of the Man Room! {and $100 Sherwin-Williams Giveaway}

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, we have been working on a special room for my husband. When he said he wanted bright orange walls, my first thoughts were very, ummm, “are you POSITIVE??” And maybe I repeated that question about 10 times or so. BUT, I let him have his orange walls, and […]

White Molding is Pretty, But This Is Even Better

So one of those wild hairs struck me Saturday morning. Maybe because school is about to start SOON, and I’ve done nothing so far? Very possible. But I’m glad it did because I am pretty darn excited with how this room is turning out so far. And to keep you up to speed, I am […]

A Dreamy Girl Room Makeover With Hidden Door Bookcase

Today is THE DAY!! It’s been so hard keeping this room all to myself for several months now. Sitting on a completed room and not being able to write about it immediately is almost torturous to a blogger. But finally, the dreamy, and very pink girl room we have worked so hard on for our […]

DIY Painted Coral Vanity

Hi guys hope you had a good weekend! The weather in Texas was gorgeous!! I was able to finally snap some pictures of our new master bathroom, and the coral painted vanity! I just love it!! The pop of color in there is so fun, and not overwhelming since I went neutral with the grey paint on the walls. Now come say hello to Coral Beauty.

I Painted Our Bathroom!

I’m slowly but surely getting rid of the beige walls that are everywhere in our home, and I’ve pretty much succeeded in several of the rooms! I guess the only beige rooms left now are the bathrooms, and the upstairs hallway/catwalk. I haven’t done anything to our bathrooms until recently, and I finally painted ours!

Surprise! I Redid Our Master Bedroom Again! {Navy and Coral Bedroom}

Yes you read that right. Let me tell you one more time in case you missed it…but I redid our bedroom again!! This makes #4 I think? There wasn’t anything wrong with the old room, but it was just lacking. Lacking life, lacking coziness, and lacking personality. I like the word lack today apparently. But once we got in the new upholstered bed, everything was just grey. Grey I love, but the grey walls, grey bed and grey curtains were just too much together. So now, here is a room I love. Our new navy and coral bedroom!

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 […]

Oh Sweeeeeet Velvet {And Some Office Changes}

Our home office hasn’t changed much at all since we converted the dining room almost a year ago (except for the new flooring). And being the crazy person that I am (because a year is entirely too long without changes), I was itching for just a few subtle updates. And now enters our sweet new […]

Is Teal The New White? (And a Sneak Peek)

When I started doing my stepson’s room, I knew what color I wanted in my head.  I didn’t want the standard boy blue, thought about doing navy, but then decided a dark teal would be pretty. And by the way, my stepson gave me free reign in his room as far as the paint color […]

Swatches on the Wall, Swatches on the Wall–Lookin Like a Fool With My Swatches on the Wall

*Insert big sigh while humming along to that little diddy* I started second guessing my decision on the Balanced Beige once I painted some bigger swatches of it. It wasn’t looking as warm as I’d like, and on some walls there was a faint blue tint when the sun would shine on it. I loved […]

It All Started With This Duvet.

I mentioned to you all that my Mom got us a new duvet for Christmas.  It was the one I have been dreaming of for several months now…the Organic Cotton Pintuck Duvet from West Elm. It looked so luxurious online, and it’s just as luxurious in real life. And since that was a night shot, […]

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, […]
