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”

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”

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.

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”

Nightstand Builds

Changing out generic store bought furniture pieces for handmade pieces is one of my favorite ways to add personality to my home. It not only shows your style & personality, but your care & attention for the details in your space. Last fall, I started transforming our primary bedroom with some new paint, a woodContinue reading “Nightstand Builds”

Small Scale DIYs

You might have noticed that recently I’ve taken a step back from large or whole room projects. While there’s a part of me that always needs to be creating, and always has ideas flowing, there’s also a part of me that knew I needed a break. The big builds are a blast, but they alsoContinue reading “Small Scale DIYs”

Growing Pains & the Project that Took Off

I LOVE trying new things! Especially with building. As a generally positive person, I see a new technique and immediately think, “I could definitely do that!” but sometimes that gets me way in over my head… Arches and curved lines are very popular right now. I have seen so many DIY’s where people are tryingContinue reading “Growing Pains & the Project that Took Off”
