    Custom Large Scale Wall Art.

    Hi Friends,  Awhile back I decided it was finally time to do something about the gaping blank wall in our living room behind the sofa. We moved in September 2021 and kind of decided to let things be until our new sofa arrived. We ordered custom so it took few months to make and ship. […]

  • It’s Kismet – A Door Story.

    It’s Kismet – A Door Story.

    Hi Friends, The best DIY’s come with a killer backstory, and this one is my favorite story to date. A couple years ago when we first started house hunting, we came across this house that wasn’t actually for sale. It was a rental listing, but times were crazy so we asked if maybe they would […]

    DIY Honed Marble.

    Hi Friends, A few months ago we were out shopping at this discount home improvement store, just browsing for nothing in particular, when we found some marble tiles. Fifteen square feet of polished black marble with dramatic white veining for only $30. Did I know what I wanted it for yet? No. Did I let […]

    New Life for an Old Coffee Table.

    Hi Friends,  A couple weeks ago I started working on getting some stored “project” furniture out of our garage. Maybe there’s also a console and six dining chairs in there too but I’m not a hoarder- okay? I just happen to find some good furniture on fb marketplace sometimes and then I don’t have time […]

    Utility Room Storage Project.

    Hi Friends, You can probably file this post under “blogs that literally no one asked for but I’m writing it anyways”. Lately I’ve been on an organizing kick so all my projects are related to purging things, then buying every container known to man for what I’m not purging, and then labeling until my label […]

  • Bedroom Dresser – An IKEA hack.

    Bedroom Dresser – An IKEA hack.

    Almost two years ago, I decided I needed a dresser. I was storing half my clothes in fabric bins which I found out Marie Kondo frowns upon so I bit the bullet and bought one. I wasn’t interested in spending a fortune so like many others searching for inexpensive furniture solutions, I headed to IKEA. […]

  • A Library Card Catalog Saga.

    A Library Card Catalog Saga.

    It started with a text message. My sister sent me this text one night in August. I had just gotten home from work and once I saw this I immediately called her for more information. After grilling her about it, confirming it was in fact an actual card catalog, and asking exactly where on the […]

    How to Transform Your Bedroom In A Weekend for Under $100.

    Hi Friends, This weekend I had the itch to do a little project. Key word: little. Just a tiny something that wouldn’t take over my life like this bathroom has the last couple months. I had been swooning over Pinterest pics of picture mouldings (see below) and decided to add a little of this beautiful […]

    Adventures in Railing Construction.

    Hi Friends, Remember when I said if you had the choice between one project or four you should always do four? Well that doesn’t always apply. Unless you’re renovating, then it almost always applies. When we ripped out the hardwoods and carpet to put in our gorgeous new flooring we were left with the decision […]

    Prepare to be Floored.

    Hi Friends, A long long time ago in a land far far away…just kidding. Last fall (which isn’t super long ago) at our house (which is actually right where I’m sitting) we decided to get crazy and rip out all our flooring on the main level of our house. We live in a rambler so […]
