DIY: Home Window Privacy

Everyone in my family enjoys to be the center of attention, I’m not denying that for even a moment, but when it comes to using the bathroom it’s something we prefer to do on the down low. This is why we’ve gone and tackled the project on our to-do list that keeps our family from literally bearing it all; our basement bathroom window needs some privacy. You see, in designing our new basement we had made some adjustments to where rooms sat because it worked better with our families needs (see the renovation process here, here, here and here).

DECOR: Blank Spaces

We’ve been living in our home nearly 7 years and this wall has looked the same ever since the day we signed papers. Not something I care to own up to, but it terrifies me on two serious levels. One, it’s huge (stating a fact here people) which means it requires big ideas and whatever I do will make a big impact on the entire space – that’s frightening.

Gutted the entire room, right down to the studs, and although we gave consideration to blowing out the back wall and combining the half […]

DIY: Teapot Vase

Dining Room Chandelier via Urban Barn I wouldn’t want, not even for a second, for you to think I’m organized enough in my life to execute a DIY like this with having to go out shopping.  The tea pot and the idea was about all of the items I had in the moment, that and a can of gold spray paint that I inherited in a swag-bag the night prior; everything else was sourced out of home. SIDE RANT>> Just for a moment, can we talk about the bugger who made wearing your pajamas in public is a faux-pas? I mean maybe I don’t know all the rules, but did I […]
