  • Back Porch Makeover: Adventures of Tom & Shelley

  • Total confession: I am officially addicted to building things. Yup, no surprise really but my new Ryobi miter saw is simply the bees knees. Hello. My name is Heather and I'm addicted to cutting wood. Much better than cheese amiright!? Yes, thanks to the handy dandy power of the miter saw we were able to complete one of the many projects on the long list planned for our adventures. [...]
  • 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: The Sequel

  • Yes. It's happening again.  The guest room is getting a makeover.  It was one of the first rooms I tackled when we moved in here, and a few years later was one of the very first blog posts I wrote. Let's take a look back at where we started before the first makeover. Super freakin' UGO! I mean, that wallpaper could induce vomiting.  Which I nearly did scraping all that off the walls. [...]
  • 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[...]
  • Project: Master Bedroom Part 1

  • Excellent news! The attic voyage was a success. I was crazy nervous, but successfully went where no Heather has gone before.  And I'm delighted to report, there was nothing interesting to find.  Any homeowner knows the sweet relief that comes with this discovery. I strapped a video camera to my head and made a video to bring you along on my adventure. And after discovering the attic had [...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • Progress Report: DIY Den

  • We can file this project under 'longest project everrrrrr'.  I feel like I started it eons ago! And in blog-land, I kinda did - a whole seven months ago! UGH. It's incredible the changes the room has already experienced, and it is almost done!!! #HighFive I had a lot of things on my list and that is what has made this such a long project.  Since the room is my DIY room and home office it nee[...]
  • How to paint your kitchen cupboards (w/ @ParaPaints)

  • The moment I settled on a lovely shade of white for the kitchen walls, I knew I would have to try and paint the island.  I wanted something to anchor the entire double room, and now that it's done I am patting myself on the back.  It's SUCH a lovely anchor:) Getting there was a bit nerve wracking though..... I really didn't know how well the cupboards would take to paint.  I didn't know if I[...]
  • 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 [...]
