Painting the fridge in T-minus 1

Painting the fridge in T-minus 1

The votes are in! After I was exhorted by several different people to choose the turquoise option (out of red, turquoise, and pink) I finally picked out a shade and bought the paint!

My little jewel box of a bathroom

My little jewel box of a bathroom

It’s done! Well, mostly done. I need to take a little touch-up paint around the edges of the ceiling and the electrical plates, but mainly DONE!! This miniscule lavatory, despite being approximately 5 feet by 5 feet, has given me more grief than any other room in the house. It’s so small that I originally … Continue reading

House tour updates: Master Bedroom

Decorating with Hannah, a play in two acts. Act 1, scene 1. Me: “I’m finally finished with this room! Doesn’t it look great?” The Hubs, enthusiastically: “Yeah hon!

Fiskevik forever

I love my fiskevik! No, that’s not a pair of craft scissors (fiskar) or the city in Sweden- it’s my new find from Ikea! The online listing is HERE I haven’t always adored my fiskevik….

Easy-peasy Art

“I don’t see much sense in that,” said Rabbit. “No,” said Pooh humbly, “there isn’t. But there was going to be when I began it. It’s just that something happened to it along the way.” Before: After: This was a weekend “mini makeover” project, and boy do I love how it turned out!
