  • 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[...]
  • Perfectly pretty prints from @Minted

  • Did you see the full DIY den reveal? I am just in heaven.  It's perfectly pretty without being too over the top girly.  But what really brings the entire room together is the art.  Three perfectly pretty prints from Minted. When I saw the Peony print, I knew instantly it was for me.  One, I love peonies.  Two, the shades of purple and pink coordinate PERFECTLY with the room (I love when thi[...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • Light & bright hallway entrance

  •   I just love it when the world delivers to me exactly what I didn't know I needed.  For free.  This happened to me late Friday afternoon driving home with two very muddy dogs from a delightful Spring hike.  I found {another, yes! remember this one?} mirror on the side of the road. #score Now, let me back track for a minute.  I've mentioned before that our hallway is basically in a [...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
  • 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[...]
