a little blog about living, loving, creating...
Virgina...Fantastic concept. Your "bubbly" personality shines on each page. Great placement on web content...easy to navigate. I see a YouTube video in near future...going viral!!Paint Guy at HD
I just recently found you by googling how to paint the inside of a dresser drawer, and I have to say I absolutely love your style. I love the beautiful whites and creams, it's exactly how I want my future home to be. I can't wait to see what you do next.
Thank you so much! That's so sweet! So glad you found your way here! :)
I love the colors in your house. Do you happen to know the brand and names of the colors for each room? I have been looking everywhere and these are perfect!
Thank you Mary! I sure do! I am doing a post on all of our paint colors this week! Check back soon and I'll give ya all the details!! :)
I just found your blog after coming across one of your tutorials on Craftgawker, and let me just say - almost 2 hours later - this is my new favorite blog - by far, without a doubt, I could go on and on :) Your home is beautiful - love your style!
Thank you so much Savannah! That is so wonderful!
I saw your blog on Iheartorganzing, and I'm so happy I did. I am a soon to be newlywed and home owner like yourself and I can't wait to decorate. Your style is so simple and chic...I feel like anyone that walks into your home must immediately feel calm because of the colors you work with. I will definitely be visiting your blog frequently going forward!!
Aw! Thank you so much girl! That is so sweet. I'm so glad you found your way here! Welcome!
I just wanted to say that I spend a lot of time on Pinterest (admittedly probably way too much time) and thus see a lot of blogs like yours, but for some reason, yours stuck out to me when I stumbled across it today. I have never commented on anyone's blog before but I felt compelled to on yours. Not only do I love your style, I love how you seem so "real" and humble about everything. It makes me feel like I can accomplish the same things you have, even though I have no crafty background at all. Thanks for this blog - it is inspiring and beautiful :)
Stephanie, thank you so much! That is one of the sweetest things anyone has ever said! It means so much that you enjoy my blog. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment and tell me that! I appreciate it so much! <3
Virginia,I love your redesign of the old piano bench. I don't have one and you show a link to this: http://1vision.com/2010/10/21/diy-ballard-designs-bench/ for those without a bench to repurpose but it doesn't work. Any way to get that info??
VirginiaLove your paint tips...I followed a google search for Polycrylic to your site. I was wondering whether you've ever used it to stiffen fabric? I wanted to try fanfolding some stiffened upholstery fabric for a diy window shade.thanks!
I absolutely love all your 10 Tips... It really helps when trying to explain to my husband how I "see" our home. I'm trying to save him money here, but he's a tough sell! Your before and after pictures helps me show him what I mean when I am trying to explain a DIY idea I have. Thanks a bunch, love your style and all the helpful tips. :)
Thank you SO much Marilyn! So happy I could help! xo
Hi Virginia,Thanks so much for all the great info. I was wondering if you had any experience with a product to remove wood grain from a piece of furniture before painting it?Thanks again!
LOVE. YOUR. BLOG! It makes me want to stop everything (eating, drinking, productive living...) and create, craft and decorate! :) Thank you!
Thanks so much for leaving a comment!! I do the hammer dance every time I read one.
