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 […]

Mid-century Goodness (Part 2) – Reupholster an Armchair

So last we saw my mid-century beauty, she was looking about like this… Right. I was feeling pretty good about myself. Oh look at me… those buttons are perfection! Mmm Hmm… then, came the arms. There are two of them, you know. Double trouble. Like this post? Sign up for fresh content, and free printables!

More Chevron, Please!

Yep, it’s official. I have a problem. A problem turning down the zig-zaggy goodness of a chevron stripe. Proven here, and here. I also love when the Kiddo’s toys are organized. So, I was so happy when I found these storage cubes to help us do a little more stashing and hiding under the TV, […]

Kitchen Desk Clean-Up and Inspiration!

Finally cleaned up the desk in our dining room… ahhhhhh… It started out something like this (this, would be the “Keeping it Real” part of the post) … OY! This was the dumping ground for all the things we’ve been needing, and using the first couple weeks in the new digs. And, all the things […]

Before and After: Slip Cover

With a floorplan like this, you can’t re-vamp one area without it spilling out into the rest of the room. In the on-going attempts to get the home gym in order, this sofa is the first “victim” to conform to the new plan. Sorry little guy, colour palette is changing… time to get with the […]

Home Gym: Paintchips and Fabric!

Choices! Choices! Choices! Yes, once again the home gym is on my mind. So, the dividers are up, and the fabric choices have been made. So what is the right direction with paint? I spent some time staring at these options for a while, trying to figure out just that… Phew! I think I’ve got […]

Our Garden: Nature’s Before and After

After the snow disappeared in Spring, and the grass wasn’t quite green yet, I had to wonder, will the garden actually come back to life? Because, it sure doesn’t look like much right now. Hmmm… Well, behold the power of nature! Bigger and better than last year, and going strong! Let this be proof to […]

DIY: Room Divider

Remember that little home gym tease last week? Well, its got a long way to go, but one task is officially off the “to do list”. So just what was all of that fabric for? Custom room dividers! Here’s how it all went down: Most of my time was actually research (to DIY or not […]

Fresh Tease: Home Gym

What does 7 metres of this beautiful fabric have to do with our old movie room turned home gym? Hmmm? This room looks like it has a split personality. Could it be makeover time? Time to bring in some pretty. Stay tuned… Like this post? Sign up for fresh content, and free printables!

Laundry Room – Before and After

Okay, okay… so the laundry room is not the most important room in the house. But, if you’re a laundry nerd like me (ie: you enjoy folding a warm fluffy towel to even perfection), you’ll appreciate this one. No one says it can’t be pretty where the work is done. But before we get to […]
