Finding just the right curtains can be a real pain. And even if you do find the perfect pattern and weight, they have to be the right length and top. But never fear! You can easily change the style to suit you needs or even make your own curtains in an afternoon. Today I am sharing with you how to add grommets to curtain panels because it’s a pretty simple project.
New on the Blog
A few months ago, I kicked off two transformations simultaneously. Yes, we have been busy little bees, but the payoff as vacation starts is going to make our summer so much more relaxing. Not only is the new dining room my happy place, but the boys’s closet makeover is killin’ it!
My husband’s favorite coffee cup reads, “I’ll start work when my coffee does.” It drives home the motto that coffee is often the morning lifeblood getting things done around here. I love having a cute little bar area with everything in one place. Make one yourself and get your coffee maker sparkling clean at the same time!
One of the most asked about projects on the blog is “How durable or long lasting are your white cabinets?” Today, I am giving a full update and even I am surprised about the answer.
Homemade cupcakes bring back memories of childhood and when mom let you lick the frosting spoon. These cupcake recipes from scratch are nostalgia-worthy!
You may be surprised to find that many homes, like mine, don’t have overhead lights in all the rooms. We are on a mission to wire and install 4 new lights in the house but keep our energy costs very low. You won’t believe how crazy the lighting was in my work-space but now it’s light and bright!
You ever notice how one project just seems to lead to another on the ‘ol list? When we had our solid hardwood floors installed, I was shocked at the price to replace the balusters, railings, and steps. But 2 $25 quarts of paint and some elbow grease made a huge difference.
We have a lot of guests and enjoy the laughter and food that summer brings, but I also want to stay on top of the cleaning so that when guests arrive, I am not stressed out with a long list of cleaning to-dos. There’s even a handy printable kitchen deep cleaning list to break it up into mini-projects if you wish.
Avoiding brush marks and streaks is the ultimate goal of everyone who paints. It is one of the things that I get asked most about with my painting projects. Well, I am spilling all my secrets today!
