Stylish Stool Makeover

Stool makeover decoupage-9198

I’m showing you another glimpse into my closet makeover today but still not the whole thing (sorry…I have to have time and my clothes put away. Not sure when that is going to happen). I store some boxes of things I don’t need to get into every day high on some shelves in the closet. […]

Family Room Makeover with BHG

BHG family room makeover afters-7530

Do you have any rooms in your house that you have big plans for but either no time or budget to execute those plans? So the rooms just sit there undecorated and uninspiring? My family room has been an eyesore for a while, so when I was contacted to participate in the BHG @Walmart Room Refresh […]

World Market Virtual Makeover

World Market Collage with #s

Do you ever have a daydream where someone hands you $10,000 in credit to World Market in order to makeover a room (or multiple rooms in your house)? Me too! It is only a dream right now, but won’t be for someone (see below)! Here is some of what I might do if that lucky […]

Mandi’s new BFF and my Katniss Moment

Vintage Revivals-Epic-Room-Makeover-Horizontal

If you can’t tell by the title, this is my entry for Mandi’s from Vintage Revivals Epic Makeover Contest…   I’ve been thinking about it for months–trying to decide whether I should have Mandi come figure out what to do with my family room, or my master bedroom. How would I plead my case? What […]

The Security Door that Didn’t Make Me Vomit

classy iron security door-3

This is a picture of my cute front door after I painted it and added the vinyl numbers I won from Shelley a few years back. I kind of loved it and didn’t want it to change. But sometimes things need to change. Several months ago, I asked for your help. I wrote this post about […]

Virtual Family Room Focal Wall

Admiral Blue

There are a few spots in my house that have been long due for a makeover, but busyness and indecision have kept them at a standstill. I got the opportunity to test out Olympic Paint’s ColorClix suite app that allows you to upload and virtually “paint” a room from your own home and see what […]

Colorful Office Chair Makeover

I am so excited to be able to show you the office chair we made-over! Not just because I think it is so fresh and fun, but because it means it is finally finished! This is a makeover that honestly was begun about a year ago when my parents were visiting. A number of delays, […]

Hair-Razing adventures–Part II

kid's haircut

If this feels a little like deja vu, it is because I have written a post like this before. Lest you think I just resurrected a post from the archives, let me assure you that this is a new post with new material, because my daughter decided to play hairdresser for the second time. This […]

From Entertainment Unit to Terrific Toy Kitchen

Play Kitchen

I was long-distance for this entire project, so the only credit I can take is encouraging the purchase of an entertainment unit for the purpose of converting it into a kitchen, and making sure my sister, Shanda, had seen adequate inspiration from blogland before attempting this make-over. She got things rolling, but it is really […]

A Winter White Mantle

I missed all of the holiday linky mantle parties, because I was in the middle of doing this (and trying to decide if I liked it).   (This is the view from the other side of the mantle, right after painting). You may remember my Halloween mantle… I had a great time with it and […]
