Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Rustic Sign

I’ve been loving rustic signs! …I wanted one really bad! Note: The paint and Varathane used for this sign were provided by Rust-Oleum but all opinions are my own. PROGRESS: To date, we’ve painted the walls, added trim to the window, completed a countertop transformation, added a tile backsplash, painted the cabinet knobs, installed a […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Cabinet Knobs

You’ve been hearing me complain about my kitchen and express my excitement for the kitchen makeover. The picture above is what I began with. As with most projects; as you make one eye-sore look better you start seeing new eye-sores. PROGRESS: To date, we’ve painted the walls, completed a countertop transformation, and added a tile […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Adding a Backsplash {and tips for the first time tiler}

We’ve been doing a kitchen makeover [I’m ecstatic, because I REALLY didn’t like my kitchen]! Here’s what it looked like BEFORE [above]; this is after a new window and after tearing off the old backsplash (which was the same material as the countertop). PROGRESS: To date; we’ve painted walls, installed new window, built a frame […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Storyboard

Kitchen Story It’s been nearly 2 years since we purchased our home. I feel like we’ve been doing a great job putting our personal touch (on nearly every square inch) of the house; but now it’s time for the kitchen! Oh, the kitchen is the last big eye sore and I cannot wait! The counter […]

How To Make Junk Cool: Upcycled Coat Rack

With all the projects I have been making for the shop, Holly and I thought it would be fun to host a couple series in 2017. One being “How to Make Junk Cool” and the other “Before and Afters”. With dresser makeovers and chair upholstering, a tutorial seems redundant and unnecessary, but it’s still fun […]

Dining Room Light Fixture Makeover {Stripping Down}

What do you do when you are on a tight budget but the light fixture (as-is) is just not cutting it? You start stripping it down… I’ve been looking for a good “before” picture of this light fixture; and I think this [picture above] is the best I’ve got (taken mid way through the Dining […]

Creatively Living, Best of 2016

Sometimes I wonder where the time as gone- and feel like I didn’t accomplished anything (you get that way too?). Thank goodness I have this blog to document (some) of the things I do to remind me that I have actually been pretty productive. I’d like to share with you what I think is the […]

Succulent Decor for the Holidays

HeadgeScapes provided the Succulents (artificial plants) seen in this post; however, all opinions and photos are my own. ********** HedgeScapes specializes in hedges that are extremely durable, fire-retardant, and 100% maintenance free. You can view their faux boxwood hedge here. However, there are several other products to choose from. I received these Succulents (set of […]

A Holiday Dining Room Makeover ~ Room Reveal

The Dining Room Makeover is finally here…it’s been a long time coming (and just in time for the holidays)! The dining room was nearly complete when we decided to begin the Backyard Makeover…which turned the window into a door [and therefore creating more work in the dining room and delaying the reveal]. So lets recap… […]
