• Montgomery Flip – Foyer

    by  • May 18, 2017 • 6 Comments

    I’m excited to now bring you inside our Montgomery flip/dream house! If you look past the dirt, navy blue carpeted stairs, water damage, and brown velvet curtains, you can see that this foyer had pretty amazing bones to begin with. The handmade terracotta floor, the rustic wood accents, the leaded glass windows…I was completely...

    Montgomery Flip – Backyard

    by  • May 10, 2017 • 5 Comments

    Now that you’ve seen how the front of the house turned out, let’s check out the backyard. You saw a glimpse in that post of this courtyard in between the garage and the sunroom. I love the location of the sunroom on this side of the house – it’s quiet and shaded and surrounded...

    Montgomery Flip – Front Yard

    by  • May 1, 2017 • 10 Comments

    Welcome to our first finished flip! Technically I don’t know if we should even call it a flip, given that it took us a year and a half to finish and it was also our home during the time…BUT that was the intention all along, so that’s what we call it.  Now that we have...

    I don’t think I could be any more excited about our new adventure – we bought our next house! We had been wanting to buy a fixer upper for awhile, and we stumbled upon this amazing foreclosure with tons of unique architectural details. It was right after I started my new job (drafting for...

    I hope you won’t mind another post with some more paper clay project ideas! I was in a crafty mood and decided to go ahead and make a bunch of different items at once, especially since the kitchen was already a mess from my lamp! Check out my paper clay lamp post for the...

    Paper Clay Lamp Base

    Hello again! I’m crawling out from under my rock to share a project I finished recently. This is an old lamp I had that I wanted to make more interesting and appealing. I was looking through a bunch of paper clay projects on pinterest and was inspired to experiment with that material to create...

    Wood Shim Plant Stand

    Today I wanted to share with you how I made this textured wood shim plant stand! I started by building the base with 4 pieces of plywood assembled into a simple box shape. I used an inexpensive 1/4″ x 2 x 4 aspen plywood panel and had them cut it there at Lowe’s down...

    Modern Asian Nightstands

    by  • August 21, 2014 • 23 Comments

    I’ve had these old storage cubes for a long time now. They were actually floating nightstands from my childhood bedroom. My parents let me pick out those nightstands on a trip to IKEA when I was redoing my bedroom in middle school and I thought they were the coolest. Aww, my old room. So...

    Guest Room 1980’s Curtains

    by  • August 8, 2014 • 7 Comments

    The last time I mentioned the guest room, I said I was trying to decide between these two vintage fabrics for curtains. I couldn’t make a decision, and so I didn’t for awhile, probably because the room was still just a hot mess and I didn’t really have anything to plan the room around....

    Painted Steamer Trunk

    Hello again! Let’s skip past the awkward apology about another disappearance…okay? 🙂 (Though I will say sorry to anyone who just got my draft post in their inbox, that’s super embarrassing. I think the “preview” button is a little too close to the “publish” button…whoops!) So anyways, I have this antique steamer trunk. It’s...

    Mid-Century Global Dresser

    by  • April 25, 2014 • 9 Comments

    When I last showed you our bedroom I mentioned how badly we needed to get some dressers for this room. Overflowing suitcases in a closet is not exactly ideal! I was looking on craigslist but hadn’t found a good fit yet. Lucky for me, my parents said we could have on of their old...
