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...]

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...]

Repair and Paint a Block Wall

The ugly Wall. That's been my nemesis in this house ever since I bought it. That ugly block retaining wall at the end of my driveway has been an eyesore since day one.  We tackled the inside of the house and then I started on the outside, by adding the new front porch, stone retaining wall, and landscaping.  Wow, did that all make a difference. But, that wall was still mocking me, … [Read more...]

Landscaping Updates and The Wall

My front yard landscaping is looking SO great after being in just a little over a year.  It was last June when my friends from Southern Living Plant collection and Carmen Johnston came in and transformed my front yard.  I documented that whole process so you can see what all was done.  It's so nice to have an irrigation system so that I don't have to worry about those plants making it.  And with … [Read more...]
