I had every intention of sharing this space on Friday, but my big brother surprised me and my family by making a quick visit, so we took the day to go and visit my father with his visit! A much needed distraction from his recovery.
So now we take a quick look around our cousins’ new dining room! Last week I walked you all through their new kitchen. … Read More
Back in May, my mom was visiting which means we make our traditional trip to HomeGoods. While going up and down the aisles I ran across a Kate Spade tablecloth that someone had obviously picked up and had regrets and placed it down in the wrong aisle. I got super excited but thought… “where would I use this?!” We no longer have any long rectangular dining tables… That is when my crazy mind kicked in and I immediately threw it in our cart.… Read More
As I mentioned on Friday’s post, I made our new patio table after our Live Edge Table died this Summer. We loved that table and considered building the same one again (minus the ice bucket, which was good in theory, but actually ended up being the demise of the table I think. Mostly due to condensation leaking into the top) so I decided to try something else. … Read More
When deciding to reupholster a piece of furniture I ask myself “Do I?!” DIY that is… There are some projects that I absolutely know I can handle! A drop in seat.

One of the hardest things for me to change in Chloe’s room was her dollhouse… I had built her a dollhouse a few years ago into the antique fireplace opening. Sadly, it was one of those things that I really wanted her to play with, but she never really gravitated towards. It was no longer practical or functional & the insert took up a bit of extra floorspace she could use to play with the toys she does love.… Read More
I’ve never really been one for sweet & cutesy murals… but I decided to have a little fun with the bifold doors in Chloe’s room. These doors, that were previously louvered doors that we easily transformed into paneled doors (tutorial here), have been glossy black for a few years. They were in need of a new coat of paint, so I decided to take them back to white.… Read More
One of the main issues we have always had with these doors/windows is the window treatments. Especially now that it is used as a bedroom vs. a dining room, room darkening is necessary. Curtains are out because the dresser sits against the windows. I have used roman shades & natural fiber shades, but was not pleased with the aesthetics. This time, as I was rebuilding this entire wall, I decided to get a little sneaky.… Read More
