Master Bedroom Painting is Complete

I’m not sure if you can tell, but the paint was still wet when I took these pictures. At about 7 pm today (Wednesday), I finished painting my bedroom! For whatever reason, this room (unlike my closet) was extra difficult and time consuming to paint. From patching the ceiling to other issues around the room, […]

Inspired by Charm Paint Colors

Yeah, the chippy paint was a little too chippy, the […]

DIY Pendant Sconce

Yesterday I showed you my freshly pained entryway. Among other things (welcome mat, coat hooks, and maybe a change in decor), I needed a light for this space. During the day the new door allows plenty of sunlight to shine in. However, in the evenings, this area is too shadowy to be welcoming. I searched […]

Color in the Entryway

Happy Cinco de Mayo, friends! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. It was a little rainy and chilly around here, so I decided to spend most of the weekend inside completing a couple projects. If you remember, a few weeks ago I got three new entry doors installed in my house. One of those […]
