  • Entrepreneur Barbie's Home Office

  • My home office has gone through some great changes recently. Yes, it was pretty fabulous...but honestly too cluttered. Just look how much stuff was in there! (and how much hair I've got!) Read all about the office transformation the first time around & see all the 'before' photos >> here The desk was too big and really didn't work well (I got that desk in grade 6!) and I wasn't[...]
  • Easy Art for Animal Lovers

  • If you've read more than two of my posts you'll likely know two things about me, 1) I super love my dogs, and 2) I also super love bright bold colours. So when my little sister, aka Dr. Jenn from Minden Animal Hospital, asked if I would help out and make some art for her clinic, I jumped at the chance. Why? It allowed me to combine THREE things I love, dogs, painting, and painting with bright bo[...]
  • 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[...]
  • Project: Master Bedroom Part 2 {side tables}

  • The master bedroom project is coming along swimmingly.  The painting is all done, the curtain rods have been hung, and a few pieces of art have been hung.  I have yet to make the curtains, and figure out a closet 'door-type' situation.  But it definitely coming along! In the meantime, I am so pleased with our re-made side tables.  I picked the warmest gooey-ist white called Melted Marshmallow[...]
  • How to paint your floors w @ParaPaints

  • Oh those purple floors.  So fabulous.  And honestly, very easy to do.  The hardest part was waiting for it to dry! I put one of the dog gates at the door to stop the dogs...oh who I am kidding, ME! I was stopping myself from going in too soon! I love putting check marks beside things, getting 'er done as they say.  So I stood at that gate like a depressed pooch and just 'dressed' the room in my mi[...]
  • 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 [...]
  • 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[...]
  • DIY Diva Den: Project Update #SeasonsTweetings

  • With just a few Christmas gifts left to purchase, I took some time on Saturday morning just for me to focus on moving my den project along.

I love it when things just work out nicely:) I discovered when I got to Target that all the area rugs where on sale! #lovesales Since this woul[...]
