bedroom paint progress!


I hope you had a lovely weekend...and Father's Day! My weekend included a little baseball, a little yard sale-in', a little celebrating Dad, and a little painting. I love the progress so far and it's such a difference {already} from the before in my shameful prettiest ugliest room post. There's nothing a little white paint can't fix and … [Read more...]

viv – antique gray and white striped wardrobe

freckled laundry gray and white striped wardrobe Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

I hope you had a lovely weekend and Monday. The weather was absolutely beautiful here and Saturday marked the start of my oldest boy's Little League baseball season. I'll share our little photo shoot on Thursday...and a bit more outside of laundry, lavender, and lately, furniture painting. I promised the whole Viv first, so here she … [Read more...]

Viv peek and finds

Antique Armoire Freckled Laundry

Hi, lovelies. Technically, it's still Thursday...even though it's a late post. I wasn't able to post on Tuesday, so I didn't want to miss Thursday too... ...and I'm d.y.i.n.g. to share a little sneak peek of Viv. (Remember her?) I got up bright and early this morning and got to work, hoping to have Viv painted, waxed, and styled tonight, but … [Read more...]

family room painting and plywood planked floor progress


Happy Monday, lovelies. I wanted to share a little family room progress with you. Since my last post, I primed and painted to get ready for the maple plywood planked floor installation. Well, almost finished painting. I still need to finish painting the trim...and now the ceiling, which was an afterthought because the two whites don't … [Read more...]

hello, thank you, kitchen


I've been thinking of the right words to write all day. What exactly does one write after they've been away from the blog for a couple of months? "Hi" and "thank you" immediately came to mind. So...hi. And...thank you so so so so so much if you stuck around and waited patiently for me to write again. Thank you for the sweet emails to check … [Read more...]

barn sale, collection, zinc, paint, thank you


You can probably tell from the creative title that this post is a bit of a hodgepodge. It doesn't tell you that it's a long one though. ; ) I have so much to share since Thursday, but first...HAPPY OCTOBER! I spent Friday preparing for The Purple Painted Lady Barn Sale & Junk Jubilee held on the property of Tricia's purple Painted Lady … [Read more...]

galvanized shelf source & graphite paint formula…etc.

Hi, loves. Thank you so much for notes about the graphite paint in my kitchen! I had every intention of posting two tutorials sooner this week but an opportunity came along with my handmade wares and I had to {gratefully} press pause on the "house" stuff for a few days. The order could not have been more perfectly timed either because … [Read more...]

graphite kitchen walls and silverplate

Happy weekend, loves. I decided to take a bit of a risk yesterday. {...after I texted my real interior designer and blogger friend Stephanie a paint swatch and told her she had approx. 10 minutes to talk me out of it!} Painting kitchen walls graphite gray may not be risky for some, but it certainly was for me... ...and I {LOVE} … [Read more...]

laundry striped lavender caddy

Tonight, I am thankful for thrift shops.   The cotton mattress cover that I found for $1.99 provided the fabric to make my laundry bags and enough crisp, white scraps for a thrift shop caddy   that used to look like this.   I hoard hang on to my fabric scraps for little projects such as this.   After a base coat of Annie Sloan … [Read more...]

twins’ room {progress} and a winner

Not too long ago, I shared Edyn's painted half of the twins' room, painted in Dutch Boy's "Rosehips White," a very pale pink. The left wall was stenciled with Cutting Edge Stencil's "Polka Dot."   Dutch Boy's "Eco Gray" arrived on my doorstep and I got to work on Grey's half last night and finished today. It is such a gorgeous … [Read more...]
