• Our Next Adventure!

    by  • September 16, 2015 • 12 Comments

    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

    by  • March 16, 2015 • 6 Comments

    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 • 24 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

    by  • July 2, 2014 • 4 Comments

    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...

    Dining/Living Room Plans

    by  • April 19, 2014 • 8 Comments

    The only time I’ve shown you our dining/living combo room was in the empty before tour – I love how bright and spacious this room is. The problem is that, with a separate family room, we don’t have enough furniture to fill this space yet! It’s still looking pretty sparse and not at all...

    Goodbye to Our First Home

    by  • March 27, 2014 • 14 Comments

    Yesterday we officially sold our first home! Yes, FINALLY. You might recall it was almost a year ago when we listed it for sale, and shortly after that our first contract fell through. Since then it hasn’t been active on the market the whole time, but we certainly weren’t expecting it to have played...
