Spring 2022 One Room Challenge: Finale

We did it! Another One Room Challenge down. To say I’m blown away by the room transformations I’ve seen in the maker community is an understatement. Go check it out for yourself at the One Room Challenge Blog. You all know that I’ve been working on my dining room. Let’s take it back to theContinue reading “Spring 2022 One Room Challenge: Finale”

Spring 2022 One Room Challenge Week 6

Week 6 of the One Room Challenge hosted by Apartment Therapy, and it finally hit me how much work I still have left to do. This week was a bit of panic mode when I realized my carefully measured shelves didn’t fit exactly how I planned, I had a ton of finishing work to do,Continue reading “Spring 2022 One Room Challenge Week 6”

Spring 2022 One Room Challenge: Week 1

This week the spring One Room Challenge kicks off! This will be my second time participating. What I loved about the One Room Challenge last time was that the DIY community really came together to support one another in their progress. At each step of the way, DIYers were inspired to try new things andContinue reading “Spring 2022 One Room Challenge: Week 1”

All the Little Things

So what’s the deal with the little things? Trim pieces, light switches, caulking, hanging those pictures that have been in your spare room for months. They’re the least glamorous parts of a project. The stuff that nobody wants to do, but we all need to do. They make a home look polished and finished, andContinue reading “All the Little Things”

DIY Sectional Part 3

After lots of planning, this couch finally came together. To be honest, when it was just a frame, I wasn’t completely confident it would turn out, but as soon as I assembled it, those fears disappeared. As I mentioned in previous posts, I designed this sectional in four pieces so it can go together easily,Continue reading “DIY Sectional Part 3”

DIY Sectional Part 2

After building the wood couch frame, this project immediately took a turn into the “stuff I’ve never done before” category. That was exciting and scary all at once to me. On the one hand, I was diving head first into the world of upholstery with a huge project. On the other hand, I spent aContinue reading “DIY Sectional Part 2”

DIY Sectional Part 1

First post of 2022. This year has kicked off to a wild start. I’ve still been busy building, and actually I think this might be my biggest project ever…I’m building a custom sectional. We had talked about getting a sectional well over a year ago but with supply chain delays and low inventory, we mightContinue reading “DIY Sectional Part 1”

Making an Arch

It’s hard for me to describe my preferred interior design style. I think it’s a mix of Mid Century boho meets old world Spanish cottage. That being said, I have always loved archways in architecture. As soon as it became popular to convert regular openings into archways, I knew I wanted to do this inContinue reading “Making an Arch”

Primary Bedroom Makeover Pt. 2

Let’s talk closets. After all this closet makeover was my favorite winter project of 2021, and it definitely deserves its own blog post. (P.S. Primary Bedroom Makeover Pt. 1 is just as exciting, here.) I’ve shared many times that I’m not the most organized person, but the start of a new year is a goodContinue reading “Primary Bedroom Makeover Pt. 2”

Primary Bedroom Makeover Pt. 1

This weekend, I finally finished the last piece on a year long bedroom makeover project. The final 5% if you will. When I started working on projects in our primary bedroom, I didn’t intend on it being a complete makeover. Once one area is upgraded it becomes really easy to want to change the rest.Continue reading “Primary Bedroom Makeover Pt. 1”
