Guest Room Part 3: The Rug!

Rug-choice.jpg

  I’m a fan of RUGSUSA {this is NOT a sponsored post btw}. I’m just a sucker for a good deal, and they have come through for me again. This beauty was 80% off and FREE shipping. It goes perfect with our Guest Room color scheme. The sale is still going on if you need a rug. I always wait until there is a 80% off sale with free shipping because that is one heck of a deal, right!?!? When it came, I was a little … [Read more...]

Guest Room Series Part 1: The room is reclaimed.

guest-room-makeover-32.jpg

Down came the nursery decor, and the guest room decorating is in full force. I have to admit I couldn’t get rid of the crib yet. What does that mean? I have no idea. Sometimes I wish I could see the future. Plus, my family keeps asking me if we are “done” having kids. I can’t decide if I just want to be done or if we are actually done. So, for the time being, the crib is in our storage unit.  No, this is not an … [Read more...]

The 6 best things about decorating.

#1. Your house doesn’t have to win an award to be a home. Friends, life is practice, and according to Malcolm Gladwell, you need to practice something for 10,000 hours before you can be an expert in a certain field. So, can I say I’m a decorating expert? Probably not. But, I can definitely tell you that I love to decorate. I have been obsessed with making a house feel like a home since my first apartment in college 15 … [Read more...]

I have a confession, I didn’t reupholster these.

yellow-chair-before.jpg

Some of my favorite posts of all time on All Things Thrifty are our reupholstering tutorials, but I am not going to deny the fact that lately I have paid to have a few things reupholstered. Upholstering takes a LOT of time, and time is something that I’m lacking these days. Over the past year I have grown a lot as a Mom and a person, and I have learned to value time a lot more.  So, one of my upholstery projects sat for … [Read more...]

Getting Organized in the Office!!

HomeGoods contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I was interested in giving away some gift cards....ummm... OF COURSE!! I'm obsessed with HomeGoods, and my husband can attest to that. So, this post is sponsored by HomeGoods. All opinions are 100% mine. I was challenged to organize a room with products found at HomeGoods as part of their Organize in Style program.  My office was a disaster for the last four years. We … [Read more...]

Behind the Scenes of the Greek Key Wall Molding Project

purple-grey-paint.jpg

This post is sponsored by 3M DIY just keepin’ it real folks. It was long past the time to lay our leaf wall from 2010 to rest. It fought a good fight, and it had a great run. The truth is, I never even used this room. My desk {which is on the opposite wall in this picture} was always full of clutter, and the the room was pretty much the “catch-all” for the entire house. It was time for a change for sure! I drew … [Read more...]

I have been working on this tutorial for several days, and I am soooo excited to finally post it! I absolutely love our Greek key molding wall, and it was less than $30.00 in materials! I dig projects like this. I love when cost is low and impact is high. So, for those that have been waiting, here are the specifications of our Greek key wall. I designed this in Photoshop to be true to size. Our office wall is 105 … [Read more...]

Dysfunctional Office into Safe Haven Sitting Room {Makeovers by Brooke}

Geomentric-Bird-Art.jpg

  First of all, let me inform you from the get go, this post is going to be LOOOOOONG. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Back when All Things Thrifty was an infant in early 2010, I painted this office and was the proudest person on the planet. I loved it. The leaf wall made me happy. In fact, the IKEA desk made me even happier. Three months later, I decided that I hated the desk on that wall because I couldn’t keep … [Read more...]

Multi-Functioning Coffee Table {Kid’s Art Supply Storage AND Flower Planter in one!}

DIY-Kids-Art-table.jpg

  Sometimes it’s hard to create that balance between a chaotic house and a clean house, and every single day I found myself pulling out the art supplies for my daughter Londyn. She loves to draw, and I decided that instead of putting away the art supplies multiple times a week, we would make a permanent table in the family room for her crayons and colored pencils. The great thing about the table though is that the … [Read more...]
