Boys Bathroom Inspiration

I’ve been dreaming up design ideas for my boys bathroom ever since I was asked to participate in (Leviton’s) Renu Challenge.  Renu provides colorful switches and outlets that can transform any room. The challenge participants were asked to be inspired by Renu’s colors, and my boys’ bathroom was the first room that […]

My office

  When we first moved into our home last fall, I was planning on decorating the office with more masculine decor.  However, I soon realized that my husband was always on his laptop and never in this room.  So, I took over!  The desk was left in the house, and it […]

Decorating with Glass Canisters

My friend Sarah not only decorates her house beautifully, but she also pays attention to the little details.  I could spend hours looking at all she’s done.  One of my favorite details is her use of glass canisters in the kitchen: She fills her with pretty pastel candies and marshmallows. […]

Kitchen Hood Update

 I painted all my kitchen cabinets during the polar vortex.  (To see more about painting my cabinets, click HERE or on the pic below.)  But I ran out of steam with my stove/stove hood area:  The exhaust fan is outdated, old and not very cute.  But we really didn’t want several […]

Guest Room Reveal

Although my guest room is still in (decorating) progress, I wanted to show how it looks after a little bit of paint. Here’s how it looked a few weeks ago: And here’s what paint can do (and some pretty flowers): I painted the room a pale blue: Valspar’s Pelican.  I used […]

Painted Headboard

{If you’re new here, you may want to follow me on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest.} I’m still painting things… I found this amazing headboard at a flea market last summer.  It was love at first sight.  Seriously, my heart skipped a beat. I love old furniture, but I do get a little creeped out […]

Spray Paint Thrift Store Dishes

I LOVE white dishes.  I love their simplicity and how they brighten up any space. I am obsessed with this Martha Stewart photo: Decor dishes can be expensive, but there is an inexpensive and easy DIY solution which includes (glossy) white spray paint and some thrift store (or garage sales) finds. I found my dishes […]
