DIY to Try – Rustic Pallet Shelf

One of the easiest ways you can add a rustic element to your room is by creating a DIY pallet shelf!

To begin you will need a

Office Space – Converting Your Closet into an Office

While the thought of giving up closet space may be unthinkable to some people, for many, finding proper office space is more important.  If you already have designated areas for your clothes, but your computer hangs out on your coffee or kitchen table, and your printer and office supplies are stranded in various other rooms in your house…converting a closet into an office may be

Old & New – The Pieces of the Room

Ok so now that the guest bedroom makeover has been completed, I can share with you where I found some of the great pieces used in the room!  You may remember my inspiration board that I used as a design guide for color and design choices (see below).  Well it proved to be very helpful, not that I actually used any of the items that

Guest Bedroom Makeover Reveal

Ok folks, the time has come.  The walls have been painted, the vines have been scraped off the trim, and the glow in the dark stars have been peeled off of the ceiling.  From there I searched to find the perfect pieces (using my inspiration board as a guide) at inexpensive prices, made a rustic shelf, and shopped my parent’s house for the rest, and

Inspiration Board – Guest Bedroom Makeover

As you may recall, I have been slowly working on the guest bedroom in my parent’s house.  Slowly, is an understatement as the only real progress that has been made is a change in the wall color from bright yellow to a mellow yellow, as you can see here.   However, I will hopefully be finishing up this room very shortly!

A Few Days in D.C.

A few weeks ago, Jim and I spent a few days in Washington D.C., Jim had a work conference and I decided to tag along.  It had been since 8th grade that I had seen our nation’s capital, and it was the first time ever for Jim.   We visited Dupont Circle, where our hotel was located, Downtown for the monuments and the Smithsonian, and

Throw Back Thursday – Halloween Costumes 2012

Happy Halloween!!! It is finally here!  Since our plans this year are a little more laid back (aka staying in watching scary movies), I figured I would show off our handmade costumes from last year!  I was the a zombie Amelia Earhart while Jim was my zombie copilot (Fred Noonan) and of course our cardboard plane helped to complete the costume. I have always been

A Halloween Tradition – Movie Inspired Pumpkins

You may be able to tell by now that I love Halloween, but even more so I love keeping our Halloween tradition alive by carving pumpkins while watching a movie, and drinking cider!  Pretty common stuff here, except our tradition always includes a Steven Spielberg movie!  Since Jim and I have been dating we have watched the movie Hook every year while carving our pumpkins,
