I can’t believe I never wrote a post about all of our window trim. It is a relatively simple way to elevate how your windows look. In my opinion of course. There’s the super ornate… More
Wow. It’s already spring (hello allergies!), which means its time for another round of the One Room Challenge! I did pass on the fall ORC this last time. Something about spring is just more motivating. Like spring cleaning. Except this is very much not cleaning. Everything gets messy, and then cleaned up at the very end. Can you tell I am not one of those people who cleans for fun? Organizing, yes. But not actually cleaning. Anyways, back to what is really important. This season of the ORC!Continue reading “Office Face Lift – Another ORC”
I have a confession to make. I have been feeling like our bedroom has been kind of drab for a while now. And that is probably because we haven’t really done a whole lot to it. It has been improving at a much slower pace than the rest of the house, which I know can be a good thing since you really get to figure out what you want. But I’ve just been feeling like there’s no real oomph to the room, you know?Continue reading “Bedroom Refresh”
I have joined the engineering prints fan group. As I have been working on refreshing our room a bit, I decided that we needed some art on one of our walls. And guys, I looked and looked and looked for some actual art. And there was some out there that I did like, but when I looked at prices I just about fainted. I didn’t like anything that much, you know? And I generally like photos more than art anyways. They make me happy and bring me memories. Sorry to get all gushy there for a second.Continue reading “Engineering Prints”
If you’ve been here from the beginning, you might remember when I DIY’ed some canvas art to hang over our buffet table. I still love how they turned out, but I am definitely ready for something new. And I wanted to create something that would be easy to switch out whenever I felt like it. Which is why I was so happy when ChrisLovesJulia shared their how-to for their art ledge!
I think its pretty safe to say that every summer we abandon all house projects and stay busy with all the summer events – weddings, backyard barbecues, traveling, etc etc. But now that summer is wrapping up and we don’t feel like we will die from heat when working outside, we figured we should try and get some projects wrapped up. A lot of the projects are small (like re-caulking one of our window frames), but a couple are going to be pretty big. Of course, we started with one of the biggest projects first: a new roof on my craft room!
