Fall Dining Room Decor

My favorite design decision in my entire home is the chalkboard wall I painted in the dining room. I remember being so nervous to paint a wall this big, black! The positive impact it has on this space is far greater than any negatives a dark color like black could have created (I thought itContinue reading “Fall Dining Room Decor”

Working on Multiple Rooms

I’ve been a little scatter brained when it comes to what I’m working on at the moment. My entire upstairs needs work before we can actually use the space. The upstairs consists of 4 bedrooms (one in which I’ve turned into the master closet), and the second floor bathroom. Each room is in varying statesContinue reading “Working on Multiple Rooms”

There are only a few original items left in my home. The upstairs hardwoods are one of them. ¬†They are a red pine and were in questionable condition when I bought the house. The wood looked like it had been stained within an inch of its life and each room had a huge square inContinue reading “Refinishing Floors”

Repurposing the Original Mantels (Part 2)

Next, I used my miter saw and nail gun(my two favorite tools) to make simple shelves out of some scrap wood I had in the backContinue reading “Repurposing the Original Mantels (Part 2)”
