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 […]

Amazingly Chippy Dresser with Old Fashioned Milk Paint

Didn’t this dresser turn out amazingly chippy?! The paint used was provided by the Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company, the my high opinions of it are all my own. I really do love milk paint! I know many people who love milk paint and use it regularly, and I always wondered if that would be me….and […]

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 […]

Girl’s Bedroom Inspiration

Source ….The girl’s room. The room that has never gotten ANYWHERE since we’ve lived here. OK, that’s not true….maybe it just feels like that. I get that this isn’t the best “before pic”. In fact, this bedroom used to actually be a kitchen! The house was a duplex when we moved in and this room […]

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 […]

Jewelry Box Makeover…and new purpose

I found this lovely little wooden jewelry box… As you can see it needed a little TLC, a little love, and some updating. I wasn’t sure if I should paint it a fun, wild color. Or go with a neutral white…like most pieces, I go with white. It makes it so clean and fresh. I […]

Holly’s Kitchen Makeover: Countertops

Note: The Countertop Transformation Kit used for this makeover was provided by Rust-Oleum but all opinions are my own. Our countertops were ugly. And, to make it worse, they were made from the same Laminate that was in my parents house when I was growing up (so I know how old they were!) and apparently […]
