Sitting Room Reveal

About a year ago, I realised that we rarely, if ever, used our back guest bedroom. Most of our guests prefer to sleep in the larger, full-size bed in our front guest bedroom. Not only is the bed bigger, but the room is more put together in terms of welcoming a guest.  So, I decided that the […]

DIY Keepsake Art

A few months ago, I mentioned that I wanted to make some keepsake art in order to commemorate our first home together. It’s no secret that I adored our first house, so some keepsake art seemed in order. I found inspiration for this project awhile ago at Our Fifth House. Is that not a precious […]

49¢ DIY Chandelier Art

I really can’t remember the last time I crafted anything. I’m going to guess I last got my craft on in October 2012. And before that? Who knows. Last year was not the year of crafting since our house was on the market. We had showings so frequently that it wasn’t possible to create a […]

House Tour: Downstairs Guest Bedroom

There’s only one room left on our house tour: the downstairs guest bedroom. I’ve blogged about this room before, but it has only recently been finished. We purchased the bed about a year or so ago, but it sat without bedding for a long time. When we decided to list the house, I knew I […]

House Tour: Master Bedroom and Bathroom

I love our master bedroom. I do. It’s just the right size. It let’s in just the right amount of natural light. It’s completely comfortable. And it’s us.

DIY Paint Chip Art

I’ve been on the paint chip art bandwagon for awhile now. In fact, I actually made this piece of art back in April of 2011. I just never shared it. Oops! You see, I actually worked on this during a week when we didn’t have power following a line of tornadoes that moved through our […]
