DIY Painted Outdoor Rug

After spending way too much time looking for a I rug that I liked (not even one out of my price range), I decided to take matters into my own hands and create something I would like…and for a fraction of the cost. I started by purchasing a plain dark grey outdoor rug (through Amazon, […]

Playroom Makeover with Murals Wallpaper

I have two young kids and we spend a lot of time in the “playroom”.  The “before” picture was actually a picture from the sales flyer when we bought the house (and yeah, we still bought the house even though it looked like this). Before we even moved in, we scraped the popcorn from the […]

Creating a Feature Wall with CSI Wall Panels

Thank you to CSI Wall Panels for sponsoring this article. All thoughts and opinions are my own. We have a pretty neat room up in our garage; my husband uses it for his music studio and study. (You can see the transformation of this room here.) However, getting to his room was like finding a […]

Tom’s Room Makeover: Transforming the Garage into a Music Room & Hangout

We have this pretty cool space in our garage. Fortunately it’s up in the rafters so it doesn’t take up any square footage (floor space) in the garage. When we moved in, the space was set up like a workshop. It had a big oversized work bench and shop lighting. Although functional (electricity, heat, running […]

Plans for the Playroom

Over the past two years my husband and I have been working our way through our house, updating each room. We’ve come to the point where I’m pretty sure we’ve touched every square inch of the house! However, even when a room is painted, it’s sill not “finished” [that’s the decorator in me talking!]. Our […]

Upholstered Chair Makeover x2

~ Rust-Oleum has provided me with the spray paint and Varathane but all opinions are my own ~ I found these beautiful chairs for $5 each. Pretty fabric? [sarcasm] I’ve REALLY wanted to do some upholstery lately and thought these would be a good project to get started with. I’ve never upholstered anything to this […]

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 […]
