There are plenty of big things left to do in our basement family room, like re-finish the media cabinet or recover the sectional, but I am not ready to tackle those yet. Instead, I have craved quick pick-me-up projects. You know the ones that take only minutes to complete, you have everything you need on [...]
…whose the craftiest of them all? Ok, it’s not me. Don’t worry, I won’t go all wicked witch on you. I am actually just here to share the awesome mirror I hung on my studio wall.
The space between my stair tread shelves was carefully calculated to allow room [...]
I made a cute little tweak to the nursery this weekend.
I saw two of these convex mirrors at Home Goods, but passed them up. They had an antique white finish and were priced at $29.99 each. That is more than I would normally consider paying for a decor item that I [...]
As I wrap up the last few projects in the nursery, I am gearing up to do some updates in our master bedroom. We used to pride ourselves on always having a well-designed bedroom. For many people it is the last room they decorate, because they focus on the more public living spaces in the [...]
I am guest posting today over at Satori Design for Living as part of the “Designer Challenge: Which Settee?”. Shauna gave me and Shannon from AKA Design three settee’s to choose from and we each got to explain what we would do with the one we chose. When Shauna [...]
The DIY Captains mirrors turned into an eye-catching gallery wall. I am so happy with the result. I had been trying to figure out the best solution for this awkward wall for the longest time. A small collection to fill up the space was the best idea I [...]

I used the same french cleat system that I had great success [...]
The foyer just needs a few minor updates and they all include creative projects I have been dreaming up while working on the adjacent dining room. We already hung art in the arched niches and added a few rugs, but the [...]
I am going to participate in the Fall Pinterest Challenge with Young House Love. I sat out the last one and guess what…I have yet to make anything I have pinned! It is time to change that. I am posting about my participation to hold myself accountable.
I have [...]
I already shared all about how to make a giant chunky frame…now how to mount one.
To mount the frame to the wall, I first marked the studs in the wall. Then I measured and marked the top corners where the [...]
I inherited a beautiful mirror from my grandparents. It is stamped on the back with Dec 10 1964, around the time they bought it. It says it is electro copper plated. The mirror measures 36″ x 48″. It is big and heavy. It hangs with four screws directly through the face of the mirror [...]
