Painted Porch Cabinet for Storage

Today, I'm sharing a project that my sister and I just completed at her house.  And this post is featuring Maison Blanche paint, one of those chalk paints that I like to use and am partnering with them on this project.  I've done a few projects with their paint and shared them with you and this is one more to inspire you to paint up an old piece of furniture.

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...]

I love watching the show and get inspired every time I see one of these makeovers.  It … [Read more...]

Sunroom Makeover: 1950’s Ranch House

Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there!  I'm spending some time with my mom today and we celebrate every single Mother's Day with grateful hearts at this stage of life. We finally got one room (mostly) finished now in Andrea and David's 1950's ranch home.  Things are moving along over there and after getting chairs recovered, furniture painted and sofas changed out, accessories added, we … [Read more...]

How to Paint a Brick Fireplace: 1950’s House Update

Finally, we have more progress at Andrea and David's house! Yay for that!  They are getting back on track with the renovation process of their 1950's home that I shared with you a few months ago.  It will probably be months in the making, as we choose rugs, fabrics, and totally paint the inside of their house.  Seeing the progress is exciting and Andrea is thrilled with the results so far.  Here's … [Read more...]
