Living room refreshed for summer.

Do you ever feel like you need to change things up a bit?  As the weather is warming up and we are full-on summer, I decided to make a change.  I wanted to refresh our living room.  Make it feel a little brighter and lighter.    One quick and easy way to bring a little new life to a space is through the use of color.  So this past week, I decided to insert a little color into our space and give it a quick refresh. In case you don’t remember what it looked like, here is a picture of our living room when IRead More →

blue grasscloth wallpapered wall

I have been married for quite a number of years.  In that time, I can honestly that my master bedroom has not been the haven I dreamed of.  Instead I spent my time and money decorating and improving on the areas in my home that were pubic areas.  The areas that our guests would see.  We don’t always take people into our bedroom after all.  So, my master bedroom took a backseat to all the other endless projects, children’s bedroom makeovers, and even landscaping plans.  Well, not anymore.  I decided to put other projects off a bit and instead work to make our master aRead More →

I have mentioned before (here) that I have lived in my home for about a year.  It’s a new home that we built and it’s lovely.  However, new homes sometimes also mean – lacking personality.  They need to have your own personal touch added to them.  We want our homes to be a reflection of who we are.  Our homes should make us feel happy to spend time in them. One room that I wanted to add some personality to is our upstairs half bath.  This is a room off our gameroom and media room.  It’s small.  Therefore, it was also an easy room toRead More →

Hi there!  I am glad you stopped by today.  So, I was thinking recently that I was ready to start making my mark on my home.  We built our home about a year ago and since that time it just felt too new and perfect to make any real changes (except for the one I wrote about here).  However, after a year I guess the newness has worn off enough for me to begin tweaking things and adding my personal touch. So, what to start with?… There are certainly lots of things I’d like to do, but what should I tackle first?  I decided thatRead More →

wall lamp makeover

I have some awesome to share with you today.  Paint.  No, it’s not just any paint, it’s Modern Masters metallic paints that I used to give me bedside wall lamps a facelift.  I think probably everyone has some item, lamp or otherwise, that could use a little updating, I am telling, you this stuff is awesome for that! Now, before I go any further, let me assure you.  I am in no way associated with Modern Masters and am not being paid to write this.  These are just my personal opinions after using this paint on a few projects around my house.  One I tookRead More →

stenciled birds on laundry wall

We’ve recently moved into a new home. It is lovely.  I mean what’s not to like about a new house?   Even better,  I was able to select all of the finishes and paint color etc… Still, a new home can be rather lacking in personality. On the other hand, it’s kind of hard to change a lot for fear of messing up your brand new home.  Right? I decided that I would start with my laundry room – it’s small, not a lot of people visit the room besides me.  So, if I messed it up, it wouldn’t be completely tragic.   Also, withRead More →
