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.

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...]

Boys’ Bathroom Makeover

Here is what it looked like before we moved in: It wasn't awful at all, so I kept pretty much everything except the weird side by side towel bars reflected in the mirror. Once again...paint to the rescue! Right?? I love you, paint. You make magic happen! :) I started with the vanity. I painted it at the same time … [Read more...]
