Inspired by Charm Paint Colors

I’ve been meaning to put together this post for awhile. Since I’ve been painting lately, I figured now was an opportune time. People often ask about the paint colors I’ve used in my house. I thought it might be helpful to have a central location where folks can reference paint colors. This information will appear […]

Progress in the Bedroom

Hey there, friends! I hope you had a truly wonderful weekend. It’s hard to believe it was the last weekend in July. Where is the summer going? It was a pretty good weekend here. On Saturday my friends and I visited Tasting In the Wilds, a local wine and beer festival. We try to get […]

The Closet is Now a Closet

Last weekend I didn’t make much progress in my bedroom since I was out of town. Then, I spent most of this week playing catch up and working on a few other projects. This weekend I do plan on getting back to work in my bedroom and hopefully making some headway in the actual bedroom […]

A New Gallery Wall

I’m sure you’re thinking it’s about time. I have delayed hanging anything on my walls in my living room / office for quite some time. Well, after inspiration struck last week, I’m breaking out the hammer and nails. As I alluded on Tuesday, this huge blank wall above my sectional has finally been filled. And […]

Real Men Paint Dressers Pink

You know, like the phrase, “Real Men Wear Pink.” Sorry, I’m trying to be “punny”. Haha. Okay. Enough, enough. Anyway, remember last week when I began redoing my whole upstairs, and I had this small antique dresser that I really wasn’t digging anymore. This one. Yeah, the chippy paint was a little too chippy, the […]

Drinks and Links: Rummy Cherries

Happy Friday! I’m currently on my way to Vermont to attend a little house warming party for a friend who recently bought a home up there. My friends and I packed into a car yesterday to make the 9+ hour trip. (I’m actually writing this post on Wednesday, so let’s hope the trip went well.) […]

This Little Light of Mine

Oh snap. I’m officially obsessed with this light. Obsessed. So as you may have guessed, my bedroom has a new light. (I probably should stop calling it my bedroom since it is actually my closet. Potayto Potahto.) Anyway, isn’t this light the coolest? I assume you’ve seen this particular fixture floating around the Internet for […]
