    Easy Side Table Makeover

    Thanks for all the love for our new floors!! Literally we smile every time we open the front door :). As we were clearing out the room of furniture in order to start the project, we decided that a few pieces would not be coming back in the room, and a few things would be moving around. I am really loving the new arrangement, but there were a few empty places. This wall for instance, is where the dresser used to sit. I had thought maybe a console table here. But, since I wasn’t really in a hurry to spend any more money, I decided to bring in this bench from our garage. It came with our kitchen table and chairs and we are no longer using it there. I actually really liked it here!

    New Laminate Floors in the Family Room

    It’s finally time!! If you follow me on Instagram then you know we replaced the carpet in our family room and hallway with laminate flooring a few weeks ago. This is a project that has been on our list since we moved in, but it just kept getting bumped by other things. But, we finally got it to the top of the list, they are done, and we love them!! Here is the before for reference.

    DIY Abstract Art

    Let me just start this post by saying I am not a professional artist by any stretch of the imagination! I know you are never supposed to say things like that as a writer because it discredits yourself and such, but I say that so that you will know that if I can do it, YOU can do it!! So, anyways, now that we have that out of the way. I recently found a piece of art at Hobby Lobby that I loved, and I thought it would be fun to try and recreate. So, I snapped a pic right there in the aisle, to save for one day when I felt artsy. Here was that inspiration piece.

    Bath Update Final Reveal!!

    I’m so excited that this space is finally done!! It Mostly because we updated it in three phases. HAHA! Sometimes that the way budget decorating and renovating goes. You can either wait until you can do the whole thing, or you do small things along the way that get you to where you want to go…eventually. So, again, as a reminder, let’s see where we started.

    From Retro to Fab – DIY Ottoman Makeover

    Hey there friend!! Today, I am bringing you a much anticipated DIY! Well, maybe much anticipated by me and maybe even my family, but I’m sure you will enjoy it as well! A while back a friend gifted me with these lovely ottomans. I knew from the start that I would recover them, but at the time I didn’t have a place to put them.
