Remodeled Entryway Reveal! {with Video}

Today’s my birthday, and what better way to celebrate than by showing you our remodeled entryway!       Can I get a Yahoo?!

I’ve got lots of photos to share but I also put together a fun little video that shows the 4 month remodel process condensed into about 2 minutes.  It {Read More}

The Song that Never Ends

  Remember the song that never ends? Well, the remodel in my entryway goes something like that. This is the remodel that never ends, yes, it goes on and on my friends. A couple   started doing it not knowing what they does (hey, I needed it to rhyme!) but they’ll continue remodeling forever just because, This is the remodel that never ends…. You get the idea right? So, when we last left off, all the pallet wood walls  had been installed and {Read More}

No Sew Drop Cloth Curtains Happy New Year everyone! I ushered in the new year at a local fun spot (roller skating, laser tag, etc.) where my daughter wa working, and m teenage son was attending the New Year’s party.  It was chaotic and noisy with over 400 kids there, but I really didn’t mind at all.

Farmhouse Christmas Tree and Gingerbread House “Issues”

I wanted a  simple farmhouse Christmas tree with lots of handmade ornaments this year.Our Christmas tree is far from magazine perfect, but when I finished decorating it and my oldest son saw it, he commented about how nice he thought it looked. If it meets with my family’s approval, that’s really all that matters.

Red Barn + Christmas Decorating Ideas in the Kitchen

Do you remember that beautiful red barn I photographed in the summer (seen here)? Well, I had 2 big empty spots on my living room wall when I sold the repurposed drawer shelves (seen here) so I made 2 canvas photos to fill the empty spaces. I took the barn photo, and our current family photo to Staples, where they turned them into engineering prints for me. When I got  back home, I turned the engineering prints into photo canvases (tutorial here) and hung {Read More}

Christmas Entryway Welcome Home Tour

Hello everyone!   I’ve been a busy bee, and can’t wait to show you my Christmas entryway!

Silent Night in the Living Room and Farewell Photos

I’m plugging away at my Christmas decor, hoping it’ll all be done by Thanksgiving, so I work on a few things each day. I did some tweaking on the wall behind the couch in our living room, to make it look more festive. I removed the window shadow box shelf that I made last year. {see shadow box shelf tutorial here}. I’ll probably move it to my bedroom later, but I wanted to put Christmas wall art in its place. I purchased the Silent {Read More}

My Barn Door Dream Came True!

I know I’ve mentioned at least a few (dozen) times that I want a barn door in my house.   I really wasn’t sure if it would ever happen, so I made a cabinet with a mini barn door on it. I love that cabinet and use it all the time, but I really wanted a bigger version, so when my husband built another cabinet into the wall in our entryway, he fashioned the door to look like a barn door. It {Read More}

Vintage Grocery Hanging Scale Clock

Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile how much I love using vintage pieces in my home.  I used to find most of my pieces at auctions, but I haven’t had much time to go to them lately, and the few I went to turned out to be duds.  

Entryway Makeover Progress

Things were going wonderful on our entryway makeover. My husband had brought home a trailer full of pallets. He cut them all apart, and got 2 walls in the entryway done.  He made me a built in cabinet to store paint that I use frequently, and I was loving it. It was the pallet wood entryway of my dreams…
