Powder Room’s are made for WALLPAPER!!

The one thing I seriously regret about the house we built in Waterford, was not having a powder room.  I chose 2 extra mudroom closets instead.  Because really, who uses a powder room?  Guests… oh yea, I have so many of those!!  Anyway, the only reason I regret not having a powder room, is because powder room’s were made for…

Drum Roll…. The Kitchen.

Here it is.  The Kitchen! Yes, it looks dated and you kinda feel like you’re in an RV, BUT I can see it’s potential.  I’ve got BIG plans for this place, but it’s going to take some time and money, so it’ll happen slowly but surely.  I’m not interested in doing a gut job since the cabinetry is in great…

DIY Crayon Art

Me and the kids gave the oh-so-famous-on-pinterest-crayon-art a try!  I must say, I think it turned out kinda cool. The kids loved sorting the crayons into alike colours, and they loved holding the hairdryer to melt the wax.  Now, it’s in James’s room and we play eye spy with my little eye with it.  Fun! CAIT

Main Floor Office

To the left of the front foyer is the main floor office.  I love this room and it will serve as a great place for Ryan to shut the door and take over the world.  As far as decorating it goes, I haven’t given it much thought.  I’d love to paint the wood work and maybe even wallpaper.  I’m thinking…

Front Foyer

Here are a few pics of the front foyer.  It’s quite large and I’ve always wanted a house with a curvy center staircase.  The glass door leads to Ryan’s office.  And the living room/dining room is through the open doorway. Nothing major to do here, but I would love to buy a new light fixture and some sort of seating…

Exterior Paint – HELP!!!

The exterior of the new house needs a major facelift and I can’t decide what to do. For sure, I’ll be planting a path of boxwood from the driveway to the front door.  Boxwood is one of my favourite greens!  I’ll also be doing some nice wicker chairs out front. Thank you Sherwin-Williams for the awesome paint visualizer. ( https://www.sherwin-williams.com/visualizer/#…

We’re Moving Again… yes, AGAIN.

I moved in with my husband 10 years ago, so I guess it’s only fitting that we attempt move #10 this year.  That’s right, you heard correct; we are moving again.  I know, I annoy myself. Ryan and I have been trying to get this whole ‘life’ thing right for the last 10 years now.  I thought I had finally…

DIY Barn Board Coat Rack

Way back when we were tearing down the old barns on the farm, Ryan found this piece of wood and brought it to life as a surprise for me.  I’ve always cherished it since he made it for me.  While I was unpacking, I found it, and was inspired to make it a functional piece for our new home. I…

DIY Side Table

I found this side table in my parents basement a few weeks ago and it made me smile.  This table was in our living room for as long as I can remember.  It made me think of my childhood house on Jefton… I miss that house dearly, so I swiped the table!!! I wanted to give it a facelift, so…
