Homemade Dining Room

This room kind of just happened on its own. Ashley found the table at Goodwill for $10, then the chairs on Craigslist for $10. She updated both the tables and the chairs and then the room just sat there. A few months’ later, Ashley found the credenza on Craigslist and after that she had to…

Writing Room

Shaunna’s once-forgotten dumping ground (through sweat, money, and more sweat), became a beloved retreat for her, the writing room. It looked a little different on the first reveal. Shaunna loved it, but here’s the thing: It didn’t really function as an office very well.  The little nook didn’t lend itself to major organization and storage…hence, she didn’t use…

Landscaping (A Beginning)

Our little backsplit came with some very overgrown plants and gardens. As we understand it, the previous owners were an elderly couple followed by the lovely single lady we bought the house from. Judging by the overgrowth we’re assuming that they had neither the means, the knowledge or perhaps the time to maintain all the…

A Teensie-Tiny Bit of Dining Room Progress

We’ve made the littlest bit of progress in the dining room. No, we still don’t have a real (non-folding) table. Dean is going to get to that sometime between now and Canadian Thanksgiving. Right, honey? But we do have a dining room chandelier that I adore. It is THE ONE. I originally saw it at The…

Eclectic Tween Girl’s Room

Julie painted the walls a light lavender and added in brightly colored accents. She made some of the wall art herself, re-painted Goodwill frames, ordered things from Etsy and purchased others from places like Hobby Lobby. Julie made curtains from fabric her daughter chose. Julie ended up with a room that works for her today…
