Our 1970's House Makeover: The Real Story Behind a Renovation, Part One



So, it's time I let you in on a little secret. Remember last week's bedroom post? Well, we'll be living in that room for the next month, as the rest of our house is a total disaster. Last week, we began the demolition that will ultimately result in us having hardwood floors throughout our house. And somehow, the floor project sent me straight down the wormhole of renovations, and now there are 45 projects simultaneously underway in my house.

DIY Decorating Ideas for Your Bedroom


Hey ya'll! So, today I'm finally sharing all of the little changes I've been making to the master bedroom over the past month or so. 

First things first, let's address the elephant in the room: 
This room is on its 11th look. 
And I realize it's ridiculous. 
However, decorating is so hard for me, and it might take me 14 times to get it right. Plus, I think I've spent about $3 in 3 years on this room, give or take. 

Can we just hug the elephant and call it a day?

How To Make DIY Ampersand Art Using Thumbtacks



How to make DIY ampersand art using thumbtacks! LOVE this!
Hey ya'll! I have an awesome art idea for you today. I was browsing Pinterest the other day and came across this brilliant idea on Angela's beautiful blog. 

The minute I saw it, I knew I had to make my own, so I flung into action and several hours later, my ampersand art was born.
And I could just leave it at that, but you know I'm incapable of such brevity. 
It's a blessing and a curse.

10 Things You Should Know About Spray Paint

Everything you need to know about spray paint all in one place! This is a MUST-PIN!
One of my favorite parts of blogging is the emails/comments ya'll send me. For two reasons. #1: Although I'm usually pretty outgoing, I'm a big introvert at heart, and sometimes wearing XXL sweatpants and hiding under my bed sounds like a fine way to spend the day. But, then I read your emails, and I'm reminded of how much I love blogging and why I can't just live under my bed in sweatpants. 
Basically, your emails prevent me from becoming Gollum.
