Week 3 – ORC, Minted Art & Kids Bedroom Design

We are on week three of the One Room Challenge! I’m making over my little lady’s room with a fresh new Kids Bedroom Design. We have made big strides, including some incredible artwork from Minted… though it’s tough to show the progress in a few pics. White paint over white primer doesn’t make for the […]

Christmas Marquee Sign

I usually knock out one big Christmas project every year. Last year it was my oversized burlap wreath. And, this year — it is my lighted Christmas Marquee Sign! This is it, but before we take a closer look, let’s back, back, back it up, and look at how we got here. (This post may […]

Upgrade a Ceiling Light with a Drum Shade

I have a thing for these lights… getting rid of them that is. Over the years, I’ve had a few of those “boob” lights as I call them, in my sights a few times. And, they don’t often last long. This one had a immitation red spray-paint looking finish to it. Trying to be bronze […]

Track lights to Pot lights

On our very first viewing of our soon-to-be new home, we had our eyes set on the lighting in the living room. I remember commenting how we would change it right away. Well, fast forward over a YEAR later, and we’ve finally got it done. Funny how that goes… We zoned in on them right […]

Office Space … Mmmk?

Was that movie reference obvious enough? Maybe I should of asked if you’ve seen my stapler? … Onward! I’ve finally found my little dedicated “office space” in the house. In the family room downstairs, right by the window (that may prove distracting in the Summer). It started out like this, well, almost… I’ve got all […]

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 […]

Halloween Paper Lanterns

Did I mention I like Halloween? Yeah. Sure do. This year we’re adding a bit of drama to the walkway for all the kiddies with paper lanterns. If you want to light the way, here’s what you’ll need… Flameless candles (they run off a LED battery, and cost under $6 for 6 at Wal-Mart, batteries […]
