2016… A Maker’s Year in Review

2016… A Maker’s Year in Reviewfeatured

Hi there!  Happy New Year, friends!  I don’t normally get wrapped up in making new year’s resolutions… Mostly because I fail miserably at keeping them, and heck, I just don’t think that I want to have that focus on my shortcomings and/or lack of follow through. Sheesh, did I just define the word defeatist or Read more

One Room Challenge… Week 6…

One Room Challenge… Week 6…featured

Hi Again! So the time is up for the One Room Challenge that was put together over at Calling It Home.  It was fun to have the inspiration from the other home decorators and designers while transforming my own room in 6 weeks.  It was just the motivation I needed to get cracking on decorating our Read more

End Tables… About Time.

End Tables… About Time.featured

I love the process of designing and building/remodeling homes.  But, it’s a big financial commitment and it takes a lot of time until you see the finished product.  Sometimes, I just love to have a cheap quick project that I can whip up and execute over the weekend… Like these side tables.  I purchased both Read more

Hey there!  Just thought I’d share some picts of a lil’ side table that I threw together this weekend. I’d bought these cute mid century legs at the local Habitat for Humanity thrift store a few years back and had been hanging onto them just waiting for the right piece of wood to come my Read more

It’s been a busy couple of months.  I’ve gotten a little off track with projects because we’ve had house guests, a graduation party, kids off school for summer vacation, camping trips, and lots of socializing opportunities.  It’s been a good time, I’ve loved all of it, but I have to say, I feel a sense Read more

Patrick and I both work from home and share an office.  It’s pretty nice with a built in walnut desk and a nice view of the mountains.  I’d love to show you a picture of it, but it’s pretty messy right now.  Patrick has been working away in there and I haven’t had the chance Read more

Handmade Wingback Wedding Gift?!

Handmade Wingback Wedding Gift?!featured

So, here’s the story.  In 1966, years before my friend Shannon was even born, her “would be” in-laws got married.  An uncle actually MADE them the chair for their wedding gift…. Who does that?  I’m so envious!  Anyway, Shannon remembers the chair was originally a turquoise tweed, then it was gold and orange striped.  She Read more

1955 Chairs… Making Memories.

1955 Chairs… Making Memories.featured

So there I was, making my way through the tattered furniture at the Habitat Restore when I came across 2 of these little blue tweed armchairs.  They were $40 each…  Too much considering the work that they would require to bring them around.  The wood was in rough shape, the cushions were nearly disintegrated, and Read more

While going through the photos on my phone, I came across this one.  I’m pretty sure that I texted this photo to a friend for her amusement as well as mine.  You see, I don’t know if people realize what kind of debris gets lost in their furniture… These are the (let me clear my Read more

Ewwww, gross… Yes, I’ll take it! 1965 couch.featured

Oh, I know what you’re thinking… Gross, where is the potential in that?!  Ugh… If you could have smelled it, you’d have been wondering about my mental wellbeing, why would anyone in their right mind purchase such a thing?  Well, to be honest, I secretly had buyers remorse the second we loaded it into our Read more
