I’ve been working on my girls’ room for six months. Okay that’s a lie. I’ve been working on it for over a year. {Shhhh, don’t t tell them that this isn’t normal}. They are used to living a disheveled life with their mattresses on the floor. When we moved in to our new house three years ago, I had just bought bunk beds. Well, the girls’ room has angled ceilings, and we couldn’t use the beds stacked. I sold them in February … [Read more...]

cottage style by All Things Thrifty_thumb

  Decorating Jill’s House has been a lot of fun, and she LOVES country cottage style. It was a lot of fun to add some really fun conversation pieces to her living room, and I have to say that the sliding barn door is my absolute favorite part of this room. I love the entire room, but I especially love the authentic chippy white barn wood that we got from an old Barn in central Utah. (Thanks sis for hooking me up). … [Read more...]

A Wilding Wall Bed DIY Kit.

The other kids are upstairs, which will be the future destination for the baby also, but I didn't want to jump to that … [Read more...]

Reupholstered Tufted Ottoman

Nov 3rd, 2010

Remember my tufted ottoman post about a year ago? Well, since my three kids turned it into a washcloth for Ragu sauce, it has sat in my garage waiting for attention.When I chose the original turquoise (yes it looks white, but it is actually turquoise) fabric, the lady at Calico Corner raved about how "stain resistant" it was, so I spent extra. Lesson learned....NEVER spend $20.00 a yard on ANY fabric. My kids had honestly … [Read more...]
