My hearth room is the perfect place for a Christmas tree shipping crate stand. It looks very rustic and so, a rustic shipping crate has been on my list of to-do projects for a while. This year turned out to be the year!
Bills, bills, bills! It seems like there is never a shortage of them. I have come to accept that they are a part of life, and there is nothing I can do to eliminate them.
Welcome to the final reveal for my home office makeover! I am so thrilled to finally be finished and able to use this room. It has been so nice to sit in front of those windows while I work. So, let’s dig right into all the things that I did to get it in this shape.
Do you suffer with drafty windows regardless of the attempt to correct the issue? If you tried to insulate those drafty windows by adding weather stripping or plastic sheeting, but you still have cold air getting in, odds are that your window frames were not insulated.
Lighting fixtures are like house jewelry. They add that finishing touch and if you change them to a different style, you can get a whole new look. This week, I want to show you how to quickly upgrade a drum chandelier by turning it into a crystal chandelier.
Welcome back for another round of this dining/office makeover! This week, I am showing you how to make these super easy, custom drop cloth curtains. Yes! I said, “drop cloth.” These bad boys cost me a whopping $28! Isn’t it amazing that you can get drapes that look like they were tailor-made for your windows at such a low price?
Welcome back for round three of this year’s One Room Challenge. If you missed the previous weeks, let me quickly catch you up by saying that I am doing a renovation of my dining room and turning it into a dining/home office. This week’s project is to install a chevron plank ceiling. But not just any planked ceiling. This one is going inside my already beautiful tray ceiling.
Welcome back, folks! I have just completed week two of my six-week One Room Challenge. For this week, I wanted to establish a nice neutral color to serve as a canvas for my dining room to home office renovation. That is why I chose to paint with Sherwin William’s Repose Gray.
How often do you find yourself working in your dining room? It seems like my dining room has gradually become a catch-all for every paper and bill that makes its way to us, and I am constantly tidying up to keep it looking uncluttered. So, when the opportunity to join in with the One Room Challenge presented itself, I knew instantly that I was going to be converting this space into a dining office combo!
Over the years of renovating homes, I have come across a lot of iffy looking tile floors. Extremely dirty tile grout is generally the cause for making tiles appear past their life. But due to my obsession with having clean floors, I eventually found the solution to revive tile floors and make grout and tile look like new again.
