It’s obvious I haven’t been here on the blog as much over the last 4 or so months. It has been due to a number of reasons with lack of time being the main one. In the beginning of this … Continue reading →
I few months back I shared our sofa dilemma with you (read more here) and how excited I was we had selected the Karlstad series from IKEA as our new sofa set. We loved the setup the Ektorp gave us … Continue reading →
I recently told you how I will be scaling back our home projects so that we can focus on paying off debt (read here). But I am not going to give up renewing our home. I just had to go … Continue reading →
Hey friends! What a busy summer it has been for us! It’s been over a month (again) since I last posted. Life is starting to slow down a bit so I am planning to make blogging a bigger priority again. And … Continue reading →
This year we are in the mindset of getting rid of what we don’t love, don’t use, or isn’t functional. Well a big one on my list for this category was our brown sofa and loveseat set that we have … Continue reading →
I am so excited to share this lighting hack. I was never a fan of the light we had in our entryway when we bought our house. It was very dated and not our style. Plus, it was a little low … Continue reading →
It was love at first sight. For me. My husband thought I was crazy I think. But I just knew. I knew a new coat of spray paint would make these vintage Hollywood Regency bamboo nesting tables stunners. I snagged … Continue reading →
It’s been another few weeks since I have blogged. We are making progress on our floors, but as a result our home is very un-done. The lack of baseboards, damaged trim, and lots of dust have made it a place … Continue reading →
Like I mentioned in my last post (read HERE), we spent four and a half days in Philadelphia, the “City of Brotherly Love,” at the beginning of May. I was there for the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners in downtown … Continue reading →
I’ts been a while- unintentionally. I haven’t posted in a few weeks- it started with us going to Philadelphia at the beginning of May for a conference for my work (I’m a nurse practitioner). Great trip with lots of yummy food and historical sites.
Then when we got back I jumped into hyper-flooring-mode. I have plans for the outside (read HERE) and so the flooring needs. to. get. done. now. Thankfully Steven dominated the floors on Memorial Day and our kitchen and dining room is all but done now- our stove and fridge are back in place! Hooray! Only 2 rooms left and some lots of finishing touches.
After a lot of work on flooring, I realized I had been neglecting my booth at BrickCity Emporium. It’s been slow because of all the rain but it also just started looking stagnant. I hadn’t changed it up much in a while. I worked hard this weekend, passing the floors off to Steven and throwing myself into painting.
I made a bunch of chicken-wire frames, a message board, and some cool vintage prints.
I also transformed these stools (this is the before) with the plan to sell them… and then decided to keep them. Of course.
Tutorial and reveal coming soon!
I am also working on a custom dresser (in coral!) and can’t wait to get started on more furniture. The break from the booth was good for me to realize how much I truly enjoy it. I’m having a class this Saturday (May 30) at BrickCity Emporium! I will be teaching basic chalk paint skills and then students get to practice by painting their own rustic frame they get to keep! I can’t wait for this class. Plus, it’s only $30 and spots are still available- just call BrickCity if you are in the area.
I hope to be checking in again soon with more substantial posts. Make sure to follow me on Instagram HERE to see what I’m up to!
