Summer Deck Update

Amazing friends, if you've spent any time around here at all, then you know I am all about a good before and after. Today is no exception. If you stopped by yesterday, you saw how I updated my faded and tired patio set into fresh new decor for our back deck: I am over the moon that I was able to use my existing  patio set once again, and I love having so much color in our outdoor space! See more details HERE. (You may want to start there anyway if you missed it!) Today my sweet friend, … [Read more...]

Easy Pitcher Update and Spring in the Dining Room

Hello lovelies!! I have a super easy makeover to share with ya'll today! Also the last time you saw my dining room was for Christmas, so I thought it was time to share it again sans the Christmas flair. First up, here is the cutie pie pitcher I am making over today: I found it marked down not once, but twice, at the thrift store to $1.98. This is a nice pitcher and it is a great size. I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love. I didn't really mind the … [Read more...]

Spring in the Living Room

Hello beautiful friends! Does it feel like Spring in your neck of the woods yet? There's a rumor that it's going to reach 70 here tomorrow. It was 39 at the bus stop this morning so while I'm not holding my breath, I am hopeful Spring is on its way! It looks like it inside here already either way. If you're new here, welcome! You will see I love to decorate with as little mula as possible, and that means lots of thrifting, repurposing, and upcycling around here! I last shared my living room … [Read more...]

Christmas in the Dining Room (& Table and Chairs Updated!)

Beautiful Friends, I am so excited to be able to declare another room done!! Remember what our dining room looked like in my Hot Mess Tour I shared when we first moved in? And remember how my hubby thought the water cooler was going to get to stay there? Um no. Well not only is the room done, but I repainted my entire dining set, and decorated the room for Christmas! Welcome to my Christmas dining room! I 've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I … [Read more...]

Dining Room and Office Progress

Hello amazing friends!! It has been a while since I shared any house progress. That's because there really hasn't been any since I painted the kitchen and back hall. (See how those areas turned out in my kitchen chalkboard post HERE.) You saw peeks of my living room when I shared my coffee table makeover. If you missed it, you can see it HERE. That room is done except for one wall. I am keeping my eyes out for ideas for it and then I can finally share that whole space. The two rooms that … [Read more...]

Front Door Updated and Ready for Fall!

Hello amazing friends!! It's hard to believe tomorrow is the first day of Fall, but our front door and I are ready! I am so ready for some cooler days to head our way, and not only did our front door get an update, I also added a little Fall flair! First here is our front door before: We strive so hard to get that "weathered" look for furniture pieces and such, but this authentic weathered finish just wasn't doing this door any favors. Any guesses what color I decided to paint it … [Read more...]

How to Install Wainscoting

Hello weekend warriors!! So you think you might want to tackle adding wainscoting to a room, eh?  Today I am sharing how I added 48" wainscoting to my guest bathroom.

Guest Bath Makeover

Hello amazing Friends! My boys are starting back to school today in their new schools and it will be mighty quiet around the house, so I am grateful to have this happy place to retreat to! Today I am revealing the first completed space in our new house! I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I used. I shared this sneak peek last  week: It is our downstairs guest bath! (Find that cute "Toilette" sign HERE.) Our home was in pretty good condition when we … [Read more...]

Old House: The Empty House Tour

Hello sweet Friends! I hope you and your loved ones are all safe from the devastating floods Harvey has caused. I'll be keeping those affected by it in my prayers! We had a busy weekend around here, and I am just putting the finishing touches on my first completed space in our new house. Here's a hint: It's our guest bath downstairs! It is just about complete and I'm hoping to have it done and photographed to share soon. It will feel so nice to have one room completely … [Read more...]
