Tiny Paintings

I’m gonna keep this short because making sure a certain fluffy husky stays out of trouble is my demanding and stressful full-time job right now. But I made these diminutive round paintings and had to share the weirdness! I found these tiny but beefy 4″ wood frames at an antique store last year, filled with … More Tiny Paintings

Maple Hardwood Floors

We decided to give our aggravating hardwood floor install another go and we’re SO glad we did!!! We upgraded up our flooring product (unintentionally – an ordering mistake on our part whoops) and the (unintentional) payout was HUGE. Last time around we used Bellawood’s solid 3/4 x 3 1/4″ Natural Maple, so beautiful but a nightmare to install, … More Maple Hardwood Floors

Modern Screen Door

I’ve wanted a screen door on our bedroom/backyard door since we moved in. It’s been one of those little projects that we just never get to. I’m not a screen door fan. They totally scream Southern/country to me and I would usually steer way clear of them. But in this instance it seemed like the … More Modern Screen Door

Wallpaper!

I wallpapered our dressing room this week. I am so happy with the results but IT WAS THE WORST JOB EVER. Surprisingly, I can’t remember another home project, besides shoveling rocks, that I disliked so much. What I thought would take 2 hours, took ten. My back hurts. My brain hurts. Wallpaper hangers are now third … More Wallpaper!

Painting Built-Ins

I’ve been putting in time in the family room, trying to get to a place where things just make more sense, but I’ve been stalled on this built-in cabinet. I’ll admit that it’s useful, displaying pottery hoards/Salton Sea relics in an uncluttered way up top and housing board games below. On the flip side, it competes with the fireplace … More Painting Built-Ins

Tulip Table Refurbish

Backyard projects continue with some patio furniture fixing and it’s super fun/nauseating. Most mornings this week have been spent getting high off of spray paint fumes while my kids are at school. I live a pretty clean life otherwise so when my husband commented that I could have just started drinking with the amount of damage … More Tulip Table Refurbish

Everyday Painting Tips

What? You aren’t painting your walls everyday? Odd, cause it seems I am. Which is probably fine with me, because when I think about dream jobs I often end up at maintenance painter for some wacky estate…or even better, Disneyland. Painting everyday. Making things fresh daily. Am I shooting for the moon with this one? By that … More Everyday Painting Tips

Hanging Grasscloth Wallpaper Yourself – DO IT!

I’ve wanted grasscloth wallpaper for so long and I regret that I waited until now to hang it. The installation was much easier than I anticipated. It’s possible that my expectations were way off. By the time I was done I expected to: be crying, have my entire room ceilings to floors covered in wallpaper adhesive, … More Hanging Grasscloth Wallpaper Yourself – DO IT!
