It’s week three of the One Room Challenge and the foyer is progressing. Full stop, no qualifiers. In truth, I had hoped I’d be a bit further along. But life has conspired to intervene and I suspect, despite my planning, it will be a sprint to the finish line to get everything accomplished. This week […]
It’s a slow news day, or translated: I’ve not been very enterprising. Life and a lawn full of leaves have intercepted my creativity. However, in my recent effort to clean and rid the cellar of all extraneous things, I did stumble upon an old project. Rather, I found an old bench my husband and I […]
I see a red door and I want it painted black. OK maybe it wasn’t red, but it was white and now its black and I love it. The first thing on my list for the One Room Challenge was the interior of our front door. And all I can say is, if you want […]
Since entering the wonderful world of blogging, I’ve been inspired by some pretty incredible projects from design bloggers on the web.

This is the third piece in the Office Overhaul Series. This is what the office looked like after we dumped the old rug and removed a ton of clutter, but before we started the overhaul.

In Need of a Refresh As stated before, I live in a 1865 farmhouse. The decor is more traditional than modern, owing to the trend at the time we purchased our furniture. Those were carefree days: no kids devouring our time or impinging upon our decision making, and two incomes to blow on furniture we foolishly thought we’d be mad about forever. […]
