Master Bathroom Makeover

mint-bathroom.jpg

  Who puts CARPET in a bathroom?!? We bought our house in 2009 not 1970, and although it wasn’t a deal breaker for us, we haven’t liked it since we moved in. This picture was from the MLS listing from when we  bought our house.  Although the carpet was an eyesore, my kids love the jetted tub, but as you can imagine, they aren’t super careful and they get water everywhere. So, when Homewerks gave us the … [Read more...]

Coral, Gold, and Aqua Girl’s Bedroom Reveal!

girls-coral-and-turquoise-bedroom.jpg

Lexee used to close her eyes when she walked by her daughters’ room door.  If you have kids you can probably relate. Her daughters’ room was similar to most children’s bedrooms. The room was boring and LOADED with toys. Plus, the layout of the room wasn’t functioning properly with an oversized bunk bed tucked to one side.  So, she gave me the chance to attack this room and of course I couldn’t resist.  Lexee’s girls are … [Read more...]

Colorful Laundry Room Makeover

Laundry Room ideas for kids!

I’m about to show you a room that I never intended to. My horrible, cluttered laundry room is a space that I keep the door shut. I’m not proud of it. In fact, most of the time it stinks in there like sour towels. Can you relate? I’m not the perfect housewife. In fact, I have been known to forget about a load of laundry in the washer for a few DAYS, yes days. In fact, there are times when I restart the sour load of laundry … [Read more...]

Entryway Makeover Reveal and a Surprise $250 Home Depot Gift Card Giveaway!

#bountychallenge

Yo, yo, yo!  Have you ever wondered how all the DIY bloggers handle the mess of projects in their houses all the time? I’ve wondered the same thing myself because I know how MESSY our house gets during projects. I honestly CANNOT handle it at times. Plus, doing projects with kids around is near impossible. Especially with a 2-year-old running around. In fact, most projects happen when he’s playing at a friend’s house, … [Read more...]

Room evolution from beige to grey.

Hazy-Stratus-Valspar-Grey-Paint-Color.jpg

I moved into a beige cave. The walls were beige. The ceiling was beige. The carpet was beige…EVERYTHING WA S beige. It was a blank slate, I’ll give it that, but few hours after move in and I had had enough of builder’s beige. Needless to say we started making changes to our home immediately after move in. After all, the first year of home ownership was like releasing a tiger from behind bars. I was rip-roaring and … [Read more...]

Back in 2009 I painted our kitchen ORANGE! I even painted the decorative designs with the help of an overhead projector. It was a fun part of our home for over 3 years, but I am really excited for change and an update! Sometimes when I tell people what I’m doing in my house they look at me like I have three eyes. But, too bad! I need to love my home, right?!?! YES!! I have always needed change often, even before I had All … [Read more...]

Beautiful rooms come to those who wait.

beautiful rooms[3]

My girls’ room has been a work in progress for ahem, three years. But, lately we’ve got our butts in gear and started making progress. I painted the plaid walls, upholstered the headboards, and FINALLY found an affordable rug.I’m a little picky with rugs because quality in a rug is a big deal to me. I don’t want a rug that will start to curl up on the edges, and I don’t suggest that anyone else buy a “cheap” rug either. I … [Read more...]

How to make upholstered headboards

how to make an upholstered headboard_thumb[4]

Making headboards for my girls room was the only way to go because I just couldn’t find anything that was cute and girly enough for me. I found some cute beds at Costco that I liked, but they were $399 EACH {no can do}. So we went for it. I knew I wanted a headboard shaped like this. The shape is called "Portman".Items you will need for this project: 1 piece of 4’X8’ piece of 1/2” MDF {about $23.00, but you will have a … [Read more...]

Yes, you read that correctly, I said PLAID. I will explain, just give me time. Yo, yo, yo! Did you think I dropped off the face of the planet? I know that projects have been sparse lately, but that doesn’t mean that we haven’t been doing any. We have been up to our eyelids in projects around here.  Plus, I’ve been sick lately. Yeah, I won’t give you a sob story, but it hasn’t been fun. My family is ready for me to be … [Read more...]
