  • DIY Sunglasses Storage & Display Organizer #12MonthsofDIY

  • Take a look at this drawer and tell me you don't one have one exactly like it in your house. We all do. Ours is in the kitchen. Yours might be there too. Even if it's not though, you know where it is. And just thinking about it is making your cringe, isn't it? Don't fret my friends. I am here to help. That drawer is now empty. All thanks to my handy dandy DIY Sunglasses storage [...]
  • A bright white kitchen reveal with @PARAPaints

  • Yes. I painted my kitchen AGAIN.  Don't judge me.  Here's the thing....I loved that bright yellow.  I really did.  But it didn't love me.  Or the cupboards.  Or the counter tops. It's a glorious bright, cheery colour.  It's not the paint's fault.  It's mine.  When I picked the colour, I had delusions of grandeur.  If you know me, this shouldn't come as a surprise.  Anyhoo....I picked the colour[...]
  • Gorgeous green chairs with @ParaPaints

  • I might have a problem.  I re-painted our dining room chairs....literally one year to the day after the last time. *she smiles a big toothy grin* That problem? I'm totally okay with it.  Because the chairs look fabulous....again! I loved their first incarnation, I loved their second, and this third is perfection. The fabulous fret fabric from Tonic Living really POPS against the deep [...]
  • Projects blooming in my beautiful brain

  • There are SO MANY projects I'd like to tackle. So many. Some are totally necessary and part of the bigger list, like rebuilding our front porch. And then there are others that I'd simple just like to do if money, time, and skills weren't a factor. Like say, adding to our kitchen cabinets so they go right to the ceiling. And while we're at it...change the hardware and paint them white. :) I sp[...]
  • Dining room chandelier DIY

  • Moving day into this house a little over six years ago was a hectic day. All moving days are hectic yes, but this one was frustratingly hectic. I was given the keys to the house (you know, which means it's yours...) drove an hour from our city house with a car loaded to the tits and poor Hermann-Maier on the front seat. Note: 110 pound dogs don't like the front seat. They don't fit. They have t[...]
  • Help me Love My Laundry Room

  • The kitchen is now bright and sunny.  The chairs in the dining room are simply fabulous, and now the latest upgrade our multi-purpose kitchen/dining/ and laundry, yes laundry room! received is an Electrolux Laundry IQ-Touch™ washer and dryer in the titanium colour option.  I can’t tell you how life altering these beautiful creatures are.  Actually, I can – but in a moment. Did you ever spy the [...]
  • DIY Dining Room Chairs with @TonicLiving

  • We used to have the funnest dining room chairs around.  I gave them a full make over this weekend, and they are no longer fun.  They are fabulous.  But let’s start at the beginning.  When we moved into this big house six years ago, we had four chairs.  Four chairs are not enough for big house dinner parties.  Also in the ‘not enough’ category were funds for new chairs…. Until DH called [...]
  • 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[...]
  • File under 'Awesome': #GuelphBlogBrunch

  • My Sundays usually start out quite lovely, but this past Sunday had more in store...and it was awesome. I joined the first (of what I know will be many more) #GuelphBlogBrunch. Heather over at heartheather was the delightful human being behind this get-together - you must go check out her post (and super FAB photos - she's got a great eye!) - and to her I am ever grateful. The six of us met at [...]
