New Doorknobs & Locks from Schlage

It's amazing how a small change such as new locks can make things better, but it's true!  It was almost 5 years ago that I bought this house and my dad and I started the renovations, which took 6 months. Since that time, I've done so many renovations and updates in the house and it's really so nice to have it all done and now I get to enjoy it all. I love to see beautiful handle sets when I'm … [Read more...]

Light up the Night: Patio Style

How do you enjoy your outdoor living spaces and what can you add to make it even cozier?  It's been so nice to have a new patio in the backyard and that ugly space that I had was really transformed with the addition of this paver patio, that connects my back door to the screened porch.  Now it's one nice big space with a beautiful sofa and chairs.  I haven't had major parties out here yet, but we … [Read more...]

Installing Beadboard Wallpaper

If you've been reading my blog since 2009, then you've no doubt seen my love for beadboard wallpaper and all that it adds to plain homes by injecting some architectural detail where there was none.  I discovered Graham Brown beadboard wallpaper back in 2009 and have done many projects in my current and former homes with it.  It really is a great cost-saving way to add some cool wall treatments … [Read more...]
