Progress on Painting the Kitchen {and some house history}

Progress on Painting the Kitchen {and some house history} {19}

Okay – so remember the crazy picture of my crazy kitchen from yesterday’s post?  Did you happen to notice a strange dark patch on the wall at one end of the kitchen?   I know.  You are distracted by the blinding glamour of my 20+ year old refrigerator covered in…. everything.  But look at the(…)

Bookshelves Arranged by Color? {before & after}

Bookshelves Arranged by Color? {before & after} {23}

I guess I’m getting pretty bold about showing you pictures of the crazy spaces in my house.  I can tell you, that is a sure sign that things are actually starting to improve around here.  If everything is totally chaotic and I see no sign of getting it back in shape any time soon?  I’m probably(…)

Painting Built In Bookshelves {if you want something done right…}

Painting Built In Bookshelves {if you want something done right…} {21}

I know.  I’ve been a bit quiet this week.  Did you miss me?  What can I say?  School began on Monday.  You might think that I’d have all kinds of free time with the kids out of the house for the day.  All those free hours stretching out between drop off in the morning and(…)

Picking My Own House

Picking My Own House {23}

As you know from my last post, we are in the midst of some changes around here – changes of the paint color variety.  Remember? I shared a very embarrassing photo of the state of my dining room. . .?  If I showed you another photo of the dining room – so that you could compare(…)

Farmhouse Bathroom REVEAL! {finally!!}

Farmhouse Bathroom REVEAL! {finally!!} {115}

Yes!  Finally!  I know.  It’s been a long time coming.  The bathroom has actually been finished for quite a while but I was struggling with some silly perfectionism about finding just the right thing to put on the last wall and then I was struggling with getting the final photos to look the way I(…)

Once More to the Studs {Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation} DURING {11}

Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation {before  –  DURING  –  after} I ended the first post in this mini series, the BEFORE section of the Farmhouse Bathroom renovation, by saying that everything in that bathroom had to go.  In truth, we did decide to keep one of the main features.  The shower stall in the corner is in perfectly(…)

Once More to the Studs {Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation} BEFORE {8}

Farmhouse Bathroom Renovation {BEFORE  –  during  –  after} Have you ever done demolition in your home?  Have you ever demo’d a plaster wall?  How about four of them – or even a dozen? There aren’t a lot of projects that make a more terrible mess.  About a year after we moved into this house we(…)

It’s True.  I Have Skeletons in My Closet.  {okay, maybe they’re just coats in my shower}

It’s True. I Have Skeletons in My Closet. {okay, maybe they’re just coats in my shower} {14}

My house was built in a simpler time. A time without closets. Lots of things were simpler back in the 50’s, right? That would be the 1850’s. A fence could be just as simple as gathering up all the rocks you find .  Simple. Running water on the second floor could be as simple as(…)

A Week’s Worth of Mantles? {one day at a time…}

A Week’s Worth of Mantles? {one day at a time…} {41}

Well.  Did I say (in my last post) that making that little vignette with the pumpkins and the watering can had gotten me into the swing of things as far as decorating for Fall?  Turns out that was really an understatement.  I have been on a cleaning and decorating tear for the last three days.(…)

Stunning Autumn Decor. NOT!  {the bathroom renovations continue – sneak peek!}

Stunning Autumn Decor. NOT! {the bathroom renovations continue – sneak peek!} {17}

Getting to know me: 1.  I DO NOT complain about the weather.  EVER.  Complaining has never changed the weather and I feel like we should be grateful every day that we get to wake up and have weather. . . 2.  In the same vein, I would NEVER complain about the upheaval in my house(…)
