DIY Coral Artwork – One Room Challenge – Week 4

I’m back at it! It’s another week of the One Room Challenge, and this week I’m talking about artwork. I’m making my own DIY Coral Artwork because I love interesting, unique, and textured pieces, but they can usually come with a pretty hefty price tag. I wanted a pop of creativity and fun as soon […]

DIY Washroom Inspiration – One Room Challenge – Week Two

It’s week two of the One Room Challenge! If you missed out on week one, I’ve decided to spruce up our main bathroom. It got hit pretty hard with the big home renovation, and it’s time to give it a little much-deserved attention and get my washroom inspiration on! I’m starting with a clean slate. […]

Fall Home Room Tour and Blog Hop

Good morning and Happy Fall! I’m so excited to be a part of this big group of Canadian Bloggers that are sharing how they’ve styled their homes for the Fall season. Autumn is my favourite time of year and it’s fun to bring a little inside. For me, Fall always marks the time of year […]

Kids Bedroom Design Reveal – ORC Week 6

We made it! I have completed my first ever ORC. Six weeks of throwing fabric around, painting things, and spinning my sewing machine at full speed. This is my Kids Bedroom Design Final Reveal! My little lady gets her room back, at last… well, minus a couple little details, but we’ll get to that. This […]

One Room Challenge – Kids Bedroom Design – Week 2

Here we go again! Time for week two of the One Room Challenge, and my little girl’s bedroom design. This week I gotta talk inspiration — not because there isn’t much change to show — okay, it’s totally because there isn’t much change to show, but I digress. I do however have one important piece […]

One Room Challenge – Kids Bedroom Design

So in my current last-minute fashion, I’ve hastily signed up for the One Room Challenge. This is going to be full of unpredictable fun! Six weeks to fully transform a space. In my case, my little girls bedroom design. If you have yet to hear about the One Room Challenge, it is hosted by Calling it […]

7 Small Storage and Organizing Hacks

Urgh. Small storage. We all have it. And sometimes, we don’t like it. It’s those day-to-day items that always seem like they could use a little help, or they’re in the way, or there’s never enough space for them. Am I right? Well, I’ve got 7 Small Storage and Organizing Hacks, to share with you […]

The Nursery Details

So I revealed my happy little “woodland creatures, modern nursery“, this week! Did you see it? We’ve been enjoying it around here, but there were a few of the nursery details, that I couldn’t get to the first time around… like this light. It started out as a dreaded “boob” light. Urgh. Then, got a […]

Dresser to a media cabinet

This may be the only makeover in history (my history anyway), where the only tool necessary –– was a hammer. Remember this dresser? Yeah. The Kiddo’s first. It had a pretty big makeover back in the day. As I remember, this dresser had been through 4 little kids before Miss O (a hand-me-down)… and it […]

Office, playroom, rec-room, or all three?

So we moved in February, and for the last 8 months, my basement and I have not been getting along. I struggled to know exactly what to do with it. I have moved the couch, desk, and tv into about 5 different floor-plans. Kinda like, this… (I was right smack in the middle of this […]

A little nightstand for my little lady.

I found this little gem for $9 at the last yard sale I attended. Probably the last one of the year (sad face, single tear). Solid wood and sturdy. Really, I couldn’t leave it behind. But, it’s definitely “of an era”. Rocking a seventies vibe. And, as I planned immediately to use it as the […]

Kiddo’s Closet Reno – Part 1

It all begins here (forgive the strange angle, we took this photo during one of our pre-move visits). This big furniture might be gone, but the day we moved in, this closet stayed the same. Three, big, heavy, mirrored doors for a little two year old wasn’t going to work. Plus, she’s so rough and […]

Add the warmth, add the pretty!

So the paint is finished, and we love it. It’s great. But — the walls are lacking personality. We need to get cozy, add warmth, add the pretty. Let’s get some art up there people! See what I mean? Booooring! But there is zero dollars in the budget for this project. We need to use […]

Finally, the paint reveal!

Well, we did our FIRST paint job in the new place! It looks alright… right?! But, I think I should revisit where we started out. This pinky-beige was in every room of the house so we definitely needed to break it up a bit. Here’s how she was looking a couple days before we broke […]

Painting Day!

So today is a big day. The colour in our little piece of the world is changing. I love this part!! Alright, so the living room is getting the “Soft Chamois” OC13, and the dining room / kitchen is getting the “Dexbury Gray” HC163. (The yellow tone is there to help me represent the kitchen […]
