In Asheville North Carolina we had a really small house barely 1,000 square feet and no budget to speak of. So, when Justin’s office all but shut down and laid off over 20 people we had to find a job, and fast… which also meant that we had a ton of remodeling to do in […]
I just added some sketches to my vanity quick change. It should help you figure out how to do it for yourself! Email, or comment with further questions! Thanks all! Check it out here: For Vanity’s Sake Here is the before and after, so check out the link!
I want to start posting just a quick before and after post, for those not interested in the background story. So here it is: Before: After: Link to details of project.
This week we are showing you the other upstairs bedroom. It was in much worse shape than the yellow room, but surprisingly was the cleanest room in the house! (or at least it felt like that!) This was the room we moved into at first, when we were basically camping out, ripping out all the […]
Here is the before and after summary of the Yellow Room. Before: After: Link to details of project.
I know, I’m late this was supposed to be up yesterday…. Sorry! From now on I am just saying next week… to be safe. So the “Yellow Room” was one of two upstairs bedrooms. It was one of the easiest rooms to tackle, so we started on it right away. (We actually finished this before the […]
Here is the bathroom before and after summary post. After: Link to detailed description of remodel.
The very first project just sort of happened. It started like many projects do, with me saying, “I think I will just change this one little thing….” Then when I begin “it” I find a problem with “this”, which leads to “that”. Or in other words the rooms secrets begin to come out and the “tiny project” turns into nothing less than our very […]
Are you ready for fabric overload?? Here are some of the fabric samples I have found. I went to Joann’s online and my new favorite fabric store online Warehouse Fabrics Inc. (why new favorite? They both had a Robert Allen fabric that I like, Joann’s price $49.99 a yard, gulp, Warehouse $10.98 a yard!!!! Uh, SCORE!) […]
Well, I think y’all know I like projects. Did you know that I really like them? I do, I do… It’s true, so true. No more rhymes I mean it! (Anybody want a peanut?) Well, for us crazy crafters, we need a space to work in, that can be closed amid the chaos of creation. […]
I was thinking a while back that I wanted to show you a little of our remodel projects from our first house. It was our little cottage of love! Our realtor tried to talk us out of buying it cuz he thought it was too far gone. Nevertheless, we moved in on our first anniversary, and then […]
We bought an old sewing machine table at Salvation army a few years ago. I really liked the size and shape, but haven’t taken the time to spiff it up. A few days ago, while I was day dreaming about being able to afford all new furniture, I realized, who needs that when you have a can […]
Did you ever hear that joke that goes something like this: What do you do if your dishwasher stops working? Kick her, and tell her to get back to work! ha. sooo funny. (said with a flat monotone voice…) But seriously, the dishwasher in this house has been driving me crazy since we got here. […]
Now that my little munchkin is around, I have needed to rethink my creative process. It all has to be done within 45 minute periods, or be able to wait, until the next nap. It also has to be cheap. And guess what, spray paint fills the bill for both needs. It is fast, drys in […]
Wet Your Appetite: Part 1 Got Paint: Part 2Tile With Style: Part 3 For Vanity’s Sake : Part 4 In eighth grade English class we had to write poetry. I wrote one particular poem that I still really like. I borrowed the idea from Snow White, which is, incidentally “out of the Disney vault” at this very moment! […]
