Winter Schminter

Holy winter batman. We are snowed in where I live. We got 20 inches of snow on Tuesday, and I am tired of it! I have been using my stuck in the house time wisely though.

I have been working on my daughter’s desk, re finishing it. I have never kept the finish on  a piece of furniture wood, so I am learning some fun new techniques.

The veneer on the top was coming up, so we glued and sanded it. It is turning out lovely! I have the top stained, and the whole piece sealed. I can’t wait to bring it up to her room!

I got some frames out from under my stairs and went to work painting them for D’s room. I’ve got great plans for the large frame. Just a tip…when you are re decorating a space, don’t go out and buy new frames, re purpose the ones you have. It will not only save you money, it is easy and gives the frames and room a whole new look. Painting frames is one of the easiest things you can do, and you can even go a step further and paint the mat.

Remember this chalk board? It has a new home in my mud room.

I hung it on the wall above the sink. The kids love drawing fun pictures and taking notes on it. I love how it adds a vintage touch to the room.

Winter Schminter! That’s how I feel.


I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new home...one we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
