Formal Living/Dining – Phase 2!

Over the past few weeks I have been transforming our “formal” living and dining room. It’s one long space and there isn’t really much division between the 2 spaces. For the longest time, it was basically the “leftover” room of all the furniture I didn’t use in the rest of the house. It ended up…

Guest Bathroom Reveal

A few weeks ago I talked about our guest bathroom updates, and today I am finally here to post about it! I’ve had the walls re-painted for a while now, but I really hadn’t completed the accessories until today. Today we had a new Home Goods store open literally 3 minutes from our house, so…

{How-To} Style a Kitchen Cart

Hey there guys! Today I’m going to talk a little about styling:) Particularly about styling kitchen items if your obligated to a small space.  I think it’s pretty obvious that I don’t have the largest kitchen in the world. But I actually really don’t mind because it’s very open and has all the space I…

Porch Makeover Round 2!

Hey guys! Well, for a while now I have been working on perfecting our back porch. A few months ago I posted my initial makeover {HERE}, but have made quite a few changes since. I originally started with a red and brown color scheme, but always knew I needed one more accent color to make…

DIY Hanging {Drum} Light Fixture

{DIY Hanging Drum Light Fixture} Below is what we had hanging over our table before. It doesn’t look so bad in the picture, but I think it’s because you can’t really tell what it looks like. I was never too happy with the way it looked in the room and always wanted something much lighter…

A {Walton} 4th of July

Happy 4th of July everyone!  Today the hubby and I hosted a fun little {4th of July bash} for our family. There was food and fun had by all – and of course tons of left overs! I’m pretty tired from all of the festivities, so this won’t be a long post today, but I…

It’s our light fixture that hangs over our dining table:) We originally had a fan hanging over the table, but from the moment we moved in last September,…

DIY Painted Chevron Curtains

Guess what time is it?? It’s chevron curtain time!!! Yupp – It’s taken me a while to get this post together, but it’s finally here! Now before we get started, I will warn you that these curtains did take a bit of time. They were relatively easy to make, but definitely involved some major patience! But don’t…

Pottery Barn Copycat!

  For YEARS I have loved the Pottery Barn “look” but simply cannot afford it at this time in my life. Hopefully one day I will, but until then, let’s take a look at some bargain look-a-likes!  

Hand Painted Anchor Table

So I’m not sure about everyone else, but I think I had the best weekend I’ve had in a while! Such a beautiful 3 day weekend full of friends and family. I took a nice little break from blogging and simply relaxed. It was fabulous!! Now that I’m all recharged, I am here and ready…

How To: Age Wood

A few weeks ago I posted about my recent { DIY Factory Cart Table }. During that process, I discovered an amazing process to aging wood.  In the past when I needed to age wood for a project, I typically grew impatient and didn’t put in the time or effort to do it right. I…

Frame it up!

Hey guys – so as I promised I am back with more projects! This time it’s a small little makeover, but none the less, it’s still a project! This was so simple to do and really made such a big difference. When I made over my {laundry room} a few weeks ago, I stole a…

Hello all! Ok so today I’m very excited to post about one of my proudest DIY projects yet. I know I have been posting mainly about room makeovers lately, but that’s not all I’m made of peeps! Little did you know, I have a strong passion for building furniture or up-cycling thrift store {and/or garage…

Office Makeover

Today I will be posting about our recent office makeover. When we moved in last September, I always knew I wanted the 3rd bedroom to be an office, but the hubs had another plan… He wanted to make this room a movie room. Well as much as I would have loved that, it just wasn’t…

Factory Cart Table – Progress

Man, I’m exhausted and it’s only Wednesday! Am I alone here? I feel like I’ve somehow fit a million hours into 3 days. This week has seriously been so crazy because the hubs and I have been working hard to create our DIY Factory Cart Table. I will say, this has not been the easiest…

Laundry Room Reveal

So over the past week or so I’ve been posting a few projects from my recent laundry room makeover. I first started with some great inspirations I had found off of Pinterest. I then replaced our awful existing light with a refurbished industrial pendant. And my most recent DIY project was the no-sew window valance.…

No Sew Window Valance

Today I’m posting about another project from our laundry room makeover. We have a small window and needed a window treatment. I really didn’t want to buy another valance, but I did remember I had some left over window panels from our previous house that we have not yet used in this home. I pulled…

Industrial Pendant Face Lift

Ok so last week I let y’all in on my recent laundry room makeover.  One of the many changes I’ve made is our new industrial light fixture as you see here:

Our Foyer Fix-Up

Stripes stripes and more stripes! I just can’t get enough of them right now. So what did I do? I put them right in our entryway.

Dishes & Dining

So you might have taken a little tour of our home and seen a peak of our dining room. I’m always changing things up here and there, but I’ve finally settled on something I’m pretty happy with. The color scheme of yellow, green, grey and black came into play kind of by accident but I…

An Antler Makeover

So for a while now I’ve been intrigued with antler-like objects. I think the rustic elements really are the reason why I’m so attracted to them. About a year ago, my hubby came home from a hunting trip with a nice little surprise on the stove. He was boiling a set of antlers from a…

Wicker Chair Makeover

Is it just me that loves wicker? Or shall I say “wuvs” it;) I’m cheesy, it’s ok.  As much as I love wicker, most of the time my wicker finds are always in need of a huge makeover.  A few weeks ago the hubs and I went to good ole east Texas to get in…

Spring Time = Porch Time!

The butterflies are out and the flowers are blooming – my allergies are in full swing, so that must mean it’s spring! I might not be able to breathe through my nose… and I might have to carry around travel size tissues in my purse, but it that just means it’s my favorite time of…

Our Happy Home

After nearly 2 years of marriage, the hubs and I were fortunate enough to purchase our first home back in September of 2011. We had been searching for months and simply didn’t have much luck. We finally found our perfect match and just knew right away that it was the home for us – a…
