Organizing my Closet

This is not a very exciting post, but I thought I'd share this with you, since I just cleaned out my closet for the 2nd or 3rd time since I've lived here.  I moved in my house 4 years ago this month (time flies!!) and have had to declutter and clear out clothes time and time again.  I'm finally learning to get rid of things that I don't wear regularly and it feels good to donate things and get … [Read more...]

House for Hope Project Update

Earlier this year, I told you all that I'm going to be involved in a very worthy charity event in the Nashville, TN area called House for Hope.  The builders of this beautiful neighborhood and house are Carbine and Associates. You can read that first post for more details about the house and project, but basically they are raising money and hope to raise around $100K for children's charities in … [Read more...]

How to Make a Sewing Armoire

One of the things that Lauren has done at her house that I thought was really neat is to create a sewing armoire cabinet out of an armoire she bought on Craigslist.  She's an avid Craigslist shopper and has found some great things on there for her house. When Iris came and claimed her craft room, she moved it down to the small office space to the left of the front door coming in.  It's an open … [Read more...]

Installing Beadboard Wallpaper

The day has finally come that I can share the reveal of my teeny tiny master bath.  It's been 4 years coming and I'm so happy to get this one done.  I wasn't … [Read more...]

Black and White Master Bath Progress Pics

It's been an exciting week at my house!  My tile contractor started last Tuesday on the master bathroom and it's been fun to watch the process and progress.  And it's really been fun to not be doing the work.  It was 4 years ago that my dad and I were knee-deep in this house renovation all during the summer and we worked like dogs getting this house done in 6 months enough that I could even move … [Read more...]

Kitchen Updates in the 1950’s Kitchen

Progress is being made at Andrea and David's house, although not as fast as they would like it to go.  I've got a little update at the kitchen and you can see how far it's come in the last month or so.  It is coming along and they are about halfway through the kitchen renovation and it's looking so much better than it did originally. Let me go back and remind you where we started with this … [Read more...]
