Ok folks, time for a little master bedroom update. As you know we got ourselves hooked up with the ever popular PAX system from Ikea. Ahh! Guys… it’s so good! But I think we can get this working for us, even a little better. So, as you can see, we were in such a rush […]

Kiddo’s Paint and Curtains

All the heavy lifting is done. Paint is up, curtains are sewn, a few muscles are sore, and we’ve got one happy kid. There are a few details to tackle, but for now lets take a look at how it went! We got a peek at the closet yesterday, but here’s a little refresher… Here […]

Kiddo’s Closet, Part 2 – Reading Nook

Progress is goooood! Last we saw little Miss’ closet we had a plan for a nook, and some drywall up. (Oh, and the wall was still Pepto-Bismal pink). So after framing, building, taping and sanding our fantastic new interior wall, we could break out the primer and paint. Ooooooooh, Ahhhhhhh… look at that Benjamin Moore Barnboard […]

We need a landing strip. You know those handy little spots you throw your keys and mail down when you come home after a long day? It has to keep you organized. It’s the worst when you’re running late and have NO IDEA where your keys are! Everybody’s been there right? So, if we can […]

Fresh Reveal – Guest Bedroom

After a few final touches recently, I figured it was time to take a little peek in our guest bedroom. This room has a great mix of hand-me-down furniture, pieces that have moved with us a few times, and some new finds from our favourite haunts. The goal was cozy comfort (on a budget!) and […]

DIY: Vinyl Decal Decor

So, what bathroom doesn’t seem to need additional storage? Floor plans often don’t allow for additional cabinets — so its time to look up. Waaaaay up. I decided, for my own, that a wall mounted cabinet was the way to go. I found a great, very affordable cabinet at Ikea. The Brimnes wall cabinet, with sliding […]
