Ideas & Inspiration for Organizing and Putting Together a Linen Closet

Hello my friends. A big thank you to you all {for everything}. I am happy to be back and hope the New Year has been treating you all well. I had plan to work through January with an organizing theme as many of us are geared up and ready to go with the fresh start of a new year. Even though February is right around the corner - if you are like me you could use some inspiration year round to continue that motivation. One of the first projects I hope to begin soon is our linen closet. We are lucky to have a closet located right in the middle Continue reading

Halloween Dining Room Buffet – Console Decor {my faux ‘mantle’ decorations}

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! As October is quickly coming to a close I thought I would share some of our Halloween decor today.

Since we do not have a mantle, I like to 'do up' our dining room buffet - and since it's only one Continue reading

10 Inspiring Laundry Room Spaces – My Tuesday {Ten} No. 18

10 Inspiring Laundry Room Spaces – My Tuesday {Ten} No. 18

Last week our washer decided it was done. The front load set was purchased seven years ago, which I guess for appliances made now-a-days is pretty average - though I was hoping it would last at least a few more years. The entire washer tub actually cracked, which though fixable would cost a pretty penny to repair {ourselves} - so a new set in our very near future. Though we will not be purchasing the same brand, I am thinking it would be pretty cool to keep the dryer we have and have two to help assist with the never-ending laundry Continue reading

Gallery Walls ~ Pictures, Prints and Collection Collages {Saturday Inspiration & Ideas}

It takes me quite awhile to commit to actually hanging anything on my walls, especially since we moved. Seeing all the tiny nails holes left to be repaired when we took everything off the walls in our old home did not leave a pretty picture in my mind. Needless to say many of my new walls are still blank canvases. I am intrigued though by gallery walls and though it may take some time for me to embark on such a project as major as some these below - there is nothing wrong with a little eye candy to assist in the planning. This week's Continue reading

My Powder Room Decorating Makeover {for less than $15}

When it comes to decorating I love frequently changing, rearranging and trying new things, along with mixing it up for each and every season - {like many of 'us' DIY decorators do} Sometimes though changing the decor in every single room is just not the practical thing to do, obviously for more than one reason.

Utilizing Unused Living Room Space to Create a Child Friendly Area

Utilizing Unused Living Room Space to Create a Child Friendly Area

I know it has been awhile since I last mentioned the living room, but the re-design is pretty much complete aside from an accessory or two. One of the main to-dos on the list was utilizing the awkward corner space and creating some additional storage in the room for everyday toys that my little guy is into at the moment. This space was primarily used for the Christmas Tree during the holidays and that was pretty much it. The door you see to the left will eventually be replaced with glass french doors and open to a bonus 'man' room - but that Continue reading
