  • The latest around here – Fireplace Remodel

      While we finished un-packing shortly after we moved into our house, we are now finally settling in to our new place. I may think I know where I want things in a new house, until I start to actually live there.  Then I tend to move things around until I find the place where they will work best. While most things stay pretty much in the same place, some things do change. One of those things was our Dining room. I had planned on putting the large dining room table that we were in the process of building in the formal dining room. Leaving us our smaller white round…

  • Basement Remodel- The Before and After

    After so many long hours of working month after month, I am so excited to share with you that our basement remodel is complete! This was just a side project that was getting completed on top of normal day life. So an hour or two a night was all we had to work on it. When I say we I mean my Husband. He did 95% of the work. The other 4% was done by some of his buddies and my dad. I did about 1% of the work. I designed and then did some partial painting. I really don’t know how I got such a light work load on…

  • DIY Capiz Chandelier – ORC Week 4

    Welcome back! There are just two week left of this One Room Challenge can you believe it! I have been so busy that these weeks have been flying by. I will be cutting it a little close with getting things finished up, but fingers crossed that we get it all completed in time! I have been working on finding a light fixture for my Under the Sea Mermaid room. The light fixture that was already in the room was one of those “Boob Lights“, you know the ones I am talking about! I really love the look of the Capiz Chandeliers to go with my room. I think that they…

  • Under the Sea Mermaid Bedroom Paint Colors & ORC Week 3

    Hi Everyone! You may have noticed that there is no week two post for the One Room Challenge. I had the best intentions to post for week two and well I was so Easter focused that the week passed me by. Things are back on track now!  I did spend my time wisely this week by doing lots of shopping for Arianna’s room. I found some really great decor items for her room, but you are going to have to wait to see them because that is not this weeks topic. This week’s topic is all about paint! This is what Arianna’s room looked like when we bought our house. One wall was…

  • Dining Room Makeover

    Many of you have been waiting to see my reveal of my Dining room. If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I was just waiting on the light issue to get resolved before I could take some pictures to show you the finished room. You can’t really have a room without a light in it, and a light fixture can really make or break the design of a room. The light hanging in the dining room before had to go. I mean it wasn’t horrible, but this light and I were not friends. The day that we got our keys to the house I was all about moving in. My husband…

  • Basement Remodel – The Latest

    The basement remodel project has made some progress. Well it has been making progress for a while now but none of it was big visible things. Running the electrical back to the breaker box, or getting the outlets all wired are not very photo worthy. They are just the big behind the scenes things that need to get done so that we can continue on with our project. You know what is exctiting! The Drywall is almost complete! Sorry the picture is a little blurry. For some reason he didn’t want to stop working and pose for a picture. I say almost complete because we still have to tape and…

  • Little Explorer Boys Room | One Room Challenge Fall 2016: Week 2

      The first week of the One Room Challenge is complete. Progress was made on my Little Explorer Boys Room, not as much as I would of liked to get done. Some progress is better then no progress. If you are just joining in, Welcome! You can check out the inspiration board for the bedroom here. The first week I was able to get the basic things done in the room. First, I filled all the holes in the walls. I am not sure what the previous owners had up on their walls but there are so many push pin sized holes in the wall. I lost count after I filled…
