    Fun, easy, and totally no sew (or barely sew) window treatments

    I love dressing up my windows. It just adds that finishing touch that every room needs. However, I am not a fan of large nineties window treatments. There is too much fabric which creates dust, and quite frankly, reminds me of shoulder pads. When I was thinking about the windows in my rooms, I wanted to add just the right touch without taking away from the window trim we added.  I came up with a fun solution one day while shopping at Target.  They had napkins on clearance that were just the right color for the room I was doing.  Napkins were the perfect solution that I needed to add some…

    We have finished installing the wood upstairs. It looks amazing, and I am excited! Everywhere except the bedrooms has wood floor and it opens up the space making it feel warm and spacious. I chose a engineered acacia wood floor. I love the dark floors and light walls. It has been a lot of work…especially for my husband…but I am loving the results!

    It’s bright and I love it!

    I am so close to being finished with my game room. We have been working on it for a couple of weeks, adding paint, wainscoting, desks, game tables…you name it. Except for the trim and a few touches the room is finally done. Here is the before…dull and boring. Just a blank space. Here it is now…bright and full of color! I wanted big pops of color in this room so I added a lot of turquoise, reds, and bright greens. It is a game room, so we wanted to make it fun. We have a place to watch TV, do homework, and have fun playing games. I found this…

    Easiest change in a room…painting furniture

    We have been working on our game room these past few weeks. I have to say that my favorite part of any room is picking out and painting the color.  I chose a soft yellow butter color for my walls, my furniture is red, and I needed to pick a third pop of color to really ground the room.  I found this console well over a year ago at the DI for not much money at all.  I knew I needed a place to put the TV on and this was just the piece I needed for the room. This is a classic example of an old seventies piece of…

    Fun and games

    It is starting to feel a little like spring around here, and sunshine and longer days always make me feel like a project. We have moved on to our game room. It is a large room above our garage that I want to make into a cozy, bright, and fun hang out for the kids. Here is what it looked like before. It had tons of potential, and I loved that angles on the walls.  The very first thing to go was that awful window air conditioner. The next thing we did in this room was build this closet. The original closet was turned into our laundry room, so I…
