Hello and welcome!  I am glad you  came to visit.  If you’ve visited before, you already know that I do enjoy a good home project.  I love making improvements to our home.  And, I’ve got another one to share today.  So, grab a beverage , sit down, and enjoy the bathroom makeover project that I just tackled.  You can enjoy the befores and afters without even breaking a sweat.  I already did that for you!

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.

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 →

DIY boxwood wreath compared to store bought

So, have you ever wondered if it’s better to buy “the real deal” vs. DIYing one for yourself? Sometimes I wonder if DIY is always the way to go.   Let’s discuss this.   Have I mentioned that I love to decorate? I love for my home to look the way…well, the way I want it to look.  Like many of you, I scour Pinterest for ideas and pictures of rooms I love.  (Do you follow my boards yet?)  It seems there are always projects to take on, things I want to incorporate into my decor, but maybe I don’t always have the money or WANTRead More →
