  • Glamorous Black and White Powder Room

  • This is the story of swanky black and white powder room makeover. This is also the story of how I locked myself in the powder room. (you can read that full saga at the very end of this post). But mostly, this is the story of the little tank lever that stole my heart. It's perfection. It is beautiful, simple, perfection. And it had me at hello. Just look at her! She's perfe[...]
  • Powder Room Makeover Plans

  • The main floor powder room is headed for a makeover! It's been a little over four years since I ripped out the ugly brown painted textured wallpaper and gave the room it's first makeover. So naturally, it's time for another:) This room gets used a lot. Not just by us (supervised of course by the dogs), but by guests at dinner parties. And it's also a room I like to decorate at Christmas and[...]
  • Family Room Makeover: HinH Decor Services

  • I'm sure it won't come as a shock, but I love it when people ask for my advice. Especially decor advice. Why? Because I want everyone to love their home as much as I love ours, and I want it to be 100% theirs. Some people just need a little extra help to find their decor voice, which is where HinH Decor Services by little old me come in:) I recently helped some amazing friends out with pi[...]
  • Project Guest Room #TheSequel REVEAL @Alexanians_Com

  •   The guest room is finally done!  Need to review the previous posts to see where we started? click HERE and HERE . I never really thought of myself as a squealer.  You know, one of those girls who makes annoying noises like some tortured chipmunk?  Not me. Until this week.  I squeal every time I walk past the guest room. Every single time. Yes, the paint looks fabulous.  Yes, [...]
  • Guest Room Update: Progress & Rug Choices

  • I have been one busy little bee! Fueled entirely by mini-eggs:) The guest room painting is DONE! Oh wait.  I lied a bit.  The painting isn't done done.  It's almost done.  I still need one more coat of Jo Jo Whitewash on the door.  But otherwise, it's done:) The green, PARA's Guest List, is puuuurfect.  It's light and bright.  It's cheery but calming and just oh so pretty.  The old ottoman that[...]
  • Easy home refresher: painting trim and baseboards

  • Glorious fresh white trim and baseboards.  Is there anything nicer? Okay, yes there is like new shoes on a visa you don't pay for...but still you get my drift.  Fresh white trim is still quite awesome. And truly the most efficient way to almost instantly spiffy up your home. It's been five years since the hallway got painted, and the baseboards were a little worse for wear.  Between a hu[...]
  • White and gold bar cart makeover

  • Fresh and bright white and gold spray paint... These are a few of my favourite things. This bar cart makeover is definitely up there as one of my faves.  It was very easy, although at times annoying. All. that. hardware.  Ugh. But I survived, and now we have a fancy bar cart to pour our (well deserved) drinks from. I found the cart at a barn sale last summer for only $40.  It's Bombay C[...]
  • DIY Den: The BIG Reveal! with @ParaPaints

  • Three cheers for paint! Seriously.  It's amazing what paint can do to transform a space.  Going from boring beige walls and a brown (and chipped) floor, to fresh barely pink walls, fresh white trim, and those supercalifragilisticexpialidocious purple floors just make ALL the difference. Other than being a long project, it was rather simple and done very much on the cheap frugal.  Let's just rem[...]
  • Clean crisp white bathroom

  • You know the feeling you get when you climb into bed with fresh sheets? That's the feeling I have in our bathroom ever since I re-painted it.  It's so fresh, so clean, so crisp....so lovely! And so very bright and white.  All the things a small upstairs bathroom should be. The bathroom was already white, but it wasn't pretty.  When we moved in, the room had white trim and bead board and the upp[...]
  • From Drab to Fab: a DIY makeover

  • Finding free stuff on the side of the road is pretty much the best thing ever for a person with a DIY habit. So when I spied this vintage dining room sideboard with a giant sign saying FREE, it was in the car in no time. I knew exactly what it would be transformed into. Our new TV unit. Up until the paint was dry on this sexy beast we used an old coffee table to hold the TV, and our co[...]
  • Kitchen revamp reveal: PARAPaints Plantain Chips PF52

  • It's done! Our entire open concept kitchen/dining room is now a fabulously bright and cheery yellow, PARA Paints' colour of the year Plantain Chips PF52 ! This project took a lot longer than I would ideally like...but that's life! Instead of being home painting, I was either eating alligator for the first time in Atlanta or falling in love with watermelon mojitos in Mexico, so really I'm okay with[...]
  • PARA Paints Kitchen re-vamp project update

  • Three weeks ago five fabulous gallons of PARA paint arrived and I was itching to get started on the kitchen re-vamp project ....sadly, that little thing that pays my mortgage - you know, those pesky job thingys? well, it got in the way as I had to head away for work. Flash forward to today, and yet again I'm packing up and headed away for work. And yet again, I'm just ITCHING to get finished. I[...]
