How to Tackle Caulking Like a Pro

How to Tackle Caulking Like a Pro

Caulking is not rocket science. However, I wish I would have looked a little deeper into it before tackling my first building project a few years ago. My thought was, how hard can this be? Well, not hard, but you CAN avoid the mistake I did. After applying the caulk,...

Old Barn Wood Vintage Sign–DIY

Do you have some old barn wood lying around that you don’t know what to do with? Or do you love the look of old barn wood, but are kind of at a loss as to what to do with it, once you get it? One of my favorite projects I’ve ever done, involves old barn...
The Nursery!! So Fun!

The Nursery!! So Fun!

What a fun project!! A little over a week ago, I had the honor of creating my brother and his wife’s nursery. Baby Lucas is due to make his appearance at the end of April. And we. can’t. wait!!! I love, love, love the theme they chose…Monsters! Not...

Hodge-Podge

I realize I have been kind of off the radar for a few weeks. Wanted to touch base with all my DIY peeps out there. And let you know what I’ve been up to. I was able to slip away for 12 days to Orlando with my daughter, Lauryn. We had a fabulous time. We even got...

The Wall

Hello!! Hope you had a great weekend! And got to spend it with someone you love for Valentine’s Day. 🙂 I want to share with you “the wall” today. 🙂 In January, I put up new trim in the foyer. You can see that post here. For a while now I’ve...

Project of the year

One area down, ten to go….on the main floor. As I mentioned before, I have been wanting to change out our trim to craftsman trim for quite awhile now. Last year I actually ripped the trim off one of the doors, only to then go into a panic attack realizing how...

Command Center Board

Hope everyone had a great weekend. If you were one of the “lucky” ones to be hit by the blizzard of the century, I hope you stayed safe and warm. 🙂 I was actually a bit jealous. Seeing all of the pictures on Facebook of people hunkered down with their nice...

Great for gifts–Chalkboard

What an ending to the weekend. My 17yo, Chase, went snowboarding on Sunday with friends. I was a bit nervous about it all day, knowing it was going to be primarily ice on the slopes since we haven’t had much snow. Ice and snowboarding (or skiing for that matter)...

Finally…The boys’ room

I’m back!!! I kinda disappeared for a couple weeks. Had a great time with family, friends, food…too much food. Time to reset and get back to real life..schedules, kids’ school, eating right (most of the time:)  ), and projects. It was relaxing to...

A week full of projects

Okay, so I kinda lied…sorry. 🙂 I told all of you I would share the boys room on my next post, but I am not completely ready to show it. It is so close and I could go ahead and share it, but I really want to reveal it when it is completely ready. So no more...

From existing table to farm table

It was last year, at about this time, that I decided to do something very bold in my DIY project venture. As I do with a lot of my renovations I take on, I decided one morning I just needed to take the plunge. I had been doing some research on what I wanted in a...
Sliding Barn Door

Sliding Barn Door

    My goal was to have the boy’s room completed before Auston came home…but that’s not happening. I like to think I’ve made progress by the simple fact, they’re sleeping in their own beds now. That was a big step…Lauryn got her own room back and there is order...

Board and Batten

Hello friends!! I’m a little late getting this post off. Unfortunately, we had a family health issue come up. My dad went in for a stress test on Monday and they immediately sent him to be prepped for a heart cath. He ended up needing to have 2 stints put in. It...

Craftsman trim

The boys are sleeping in their own room tonight!!! This has been a long time coming! I started on re-doing their room back at the START of the school year and here we are in November and I’m still not done. 🙁 This has been quite the project. But we are getting...

And then life happened…

That moment when you have your whole week planned out, is usually when you can expect “life” to happen…. as evidenced by our week last week. While working on the boys’ room (hanging trim), I got a phone call from the kids’ school. My...
How to Shiplap a Ceiling

How to Shiplap a Ceiling

I have been working on my current project for what seems like an eternity. I started redoing the two younger boys’ room at the end of August and I am just now seeing the light at the end of the long tunnel. I searched and searched my files and could not find a...
