I am always on the hunt for that perfect piece to fit into a space, within my tiny budget of course. In fact, I have been on the hunt for table to put behind our sofa for what seems like forever. Ok, really 2 years. In my mind I saw something relatively simple like this […]
Some projects have to wait for the right Aha! moment. Today’s military footlocker transformation is like that. Rustoleum challenged me to complete a project alongside 40 other bloggers and you get to vote the winner!
I’m back with an update to how our living room makeover for the One Room Challenge is going. To be honest, the exhaustion has set in and I am living on caffeine and dreams right now. But we have made serious progress and I am thrilled (thrilled!) to show you the biggest DIY project we […]
