I really wanted to share a project success today, but not all DIY projects end in success. Some are met with failure and frustration. I am going to tell you what I am struggling with in hopes that if you are experiencing similar setbacks you will know your not alone. And, just maybe, one of [...]
When March 1st rolled around, I realized my Valentine’s mantel was passed its prime. All the chocolates were gone from the footed hurricane. It was time for a change, and spring was calling.
I wanted a quick change with a little Easter flair. I swapped the artwork [...]
Welcome back to one of my favorite new series on Teal & Lime. I find inspiration in all kinds of places, but I am mostly inspired by interiors, both residential and commercial. I wanted a more formal way to share some of the spaces I find inspiring. In this new series, called Be Inspired, I [...]
I am taking my pinning offline with a giant DIY pin board for my studio. When Sherry announced the winter edition of the Pinterest Challenge last week, I knew this was the perfect project. It was quick, inexpensive, and big impact!
I was inspired by many, many good examples on pinterest, but [...]
These are my happy scrappy decorative spheres. It felt downright spring-like in here while I was working on this project. My fabric choices were light and bright.
This project was born of two inspirations; upcycled embroidery hoops and fabric wrapping. The embroidery hoop obsession started years ago as I saw so [...]
I have another double mood board treat for you today, and this one comes with after pictures!!! Sweet Gretchen asked me to create a mood board for her master bedroom and master bathroom. She had chosen a beautiful wall color for her bedroom, but didn’t know where to go from there. Her bathroom was completely [...]
Happy Valentine’s Day!
It’s not red, it’s not pink, but it is all about love. I just have to share with you my new favorite pillow cover. You may recall the super cute “Love” pillow cover (#21) from my basement family [...]
I’ve added a helper stool to the kitchen. Cooking used to be one of my few alone times, but the boys have gotten more interested in helping. I finally gave in and gave this stool I had stashed in the garage a little makeover.
Despite taking away mommy’s alone time, the stool [...]
I have a double mood board eye-candy treat for you today!! I recently created this pair of beautiful mood boards for the same client, who loved Edie Wadsworth’s home.
If you don’t know Edie, she is the woman behind he beautiful blog Life in Grace. She lost her home in a fire [...]
My $4 pair of giant thrifted candlesticks got a makeover…or three. The last one stuck! This post is about more than just a thrift store makeover, it is about persevering when the first one, or two ideas, don’t work. Retakes are a fact of life with DIY projects.
My first [...]
I rarely decorate for holidays other than Christmas, but this year I feel compelled to do more. My kids are aware and excited for upcoming holidays now. They decorate at school, and I decided it was time to start decorating at home, too. Nothing wrong with a little festivity! I just have one rule…it has [...]
Brace yourself, this kitchen mood board is flea market CUTE. I can’t get over the adorable moss-covered birds.
Many of my clients have blank spaces or a few pieces of furniture they want to keep. Rarely do they have a bunch of accessories to work with. This client was different, she already had great accessories, [...]
I am proudly keeping produce on display in my kitchen! For over a year now the hubby and I have followed, or tried to follow, a slow-carb diet. This year we transitioned to the Paleo diet. It is also known as “caveman” or hunter/gatherer” diet. I don’t want to spend much time talking about the [...]
I have pined after raw wood cutting boards with dipped handles. First I saw these colorblocked cutting boards at Anthropologie. Then these raw wood boards in all sizes caught my eye at West Elm. They are not the kind of cutting boards you tuck away. These are the kind you [...]
For most of us, formal living rooms and sometimes dining rooms are a thing of the past. If we have them, they rarely get used. Unfortunately, most of our homes still have them. So what are you supposed to do with those formal front rooms? How can you make the space useable and functional?
