Consider this my beginner’s guide for How to Hang Wallpaper. How did it work out for me? Fantastic! I’ve never touched the stuff before and it could not of ended better for me. It took a little work, but speaking as a first-timer, if I can do it, so can you! I want to host […]

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 […]

Inspired by Black – Society6

I have been so inspired by the colour (or, non-colour) black lately. I have a new black wall in the house that I will be sharing soon, and I’m loving everything that’s high contrast, in home decor. So, I was inspired to create this new art board over at Society6, with all things black. There […]

Fill up those Gallery Walls

Who says you have to pay a fortune to have interesting and compelling art in your home? I have a couple great tricks up my sleeve, for having dramatic walls, on a budget — and fill up those gallery walls, people! First up, mirrors! Look through the thrift shop, the as-is area of furniture stores, […]

Reclaimed Wood Wall

Look at this face… it’s a happy face. Recently, we had the opportunity to save some vintage barn board. We learned this crumbling old farm house was going to be burned down, it obviously wasn’t safe anymore, and really couldn’t be used for much. So, we sprang into action, crowbars in hand, so we could […]

Vintage Octagon Mirror

Look at this little beauty! Once again, I found this vintage octagon mirror, in a stack of old musty frames, and dusty mirrors, at the thrift store. Have I mentioned how much I love the thrift store? She had me at octagon. Didn’t hurt that it was only $10. Home with me, she came. Like […]

Lock of Love

We had such a great time in Paris, and now we have little memento to remember it by, at home. There are many bridges along the Seine River where couples from around the world add a lock to symbolize their love for each other. We got in on that action while visiting. It was fun, […]

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 […]

Headboards and Monsters.

I know now why I need a headboard. I am on week 3 of waking in the middle of the night to find my pillow slowly slipping down in-between the wall and mattress. Maybe the monster under the bed really does exist, and he wants to eat my pillow?? Anyway, time to get ours mounted… […]
