Closet Doors

Why do I get so damn obsessed with the dumbest things? Today, I was painting the kids toyroom when I shockingly noticed I over looked one thing…. the closet door knob.  Such a juicy detail that I can go bananas with.  So then, I became obsessed. I’ve been online all friggin’ day looking for the perfect door knobs.  I found…

1955 Kerns Rd.

I finally got my new house numbers up. And, I love them.  I knocked the old ones off from above the garage in like 2 seconds.  They were pretty nasty.  Some dinky plastic things and there was spider nests behind them.  Yuck.  I sanded down the wood and then painted over the section where they were. It’s like they never…

Next Project…

I may not be blogging for a bit since my next project is a big one!  The first room that I have decided to tackle is the kid’s playroom. Before we moved in…. Now that we’ve moved in… (and this is clean!) The toy room was actually last on my list of rooms to decorate, but I came across this…

My Fireplace Was Bugging Me.

First of all, just want to remind you to sign up for my email updates… over there, to the right… Anyway, I woke up this morning and for some reason, my fireplace was irritating me.   So I gave it a mini make over. Some before pics.  That brass – my, oh, my. I removed the Brass pieces and brought…

Grandma Hluchy’s Great Rice

I think I am subscribed to some 75 different blogs and shopping websites.  Every morning, I wake up and shuffle through my emails to see if anything interesting catches my eye.  Today, I see in the subject line “Grandma Hluchy’s Great Rice”… Cha Ching…Jackpot. A slovak recipe from Grandma Hluchy’s kitchen beats any home decor update any day!  THANK YOU…

Ugly Valance No More!

I really wanted to update the window treatments in my kitchen, but for fairly cheap.  I’d love some roman blinds, but I know that I’ll be bored of them quick.  And, even if I’m not, when I reno my kitchen in the future, I’ll want to fork out the dough for something really nice.  Not going to waste my money…

Exterior decisions

If you’ve talked to me in the last 2 weeks, you know how much the exterior of my house is irritating me.  Seriously, I can live with someone else’s appliances, and even a yellow ceramic tiled shower…. But I can’t stand having an ugly exterior.  I want a new door.  I want new shutters.  I want new garage doors.  And,…

DIY Kitchen Banquette

The BEFORE… The AFTER… My original plan with this banquette was to just make covers for the pink cushions.  BUT, when I took them off to give them a good clean, I literally had to peeeeel them off.  BARF.  The underside of them all were covered in grease and rice.  No joke.  It was so nasty.  So, I put gloves…

A few updates in the Kicthen

It’s been a while.

I know I haven’t written in a while, but I haven’t been so motivated these days.  The move was tough.  I was devastated to leave the country life, and when I got into this place, it was nasty.  The previous owners left crap in every drawer and cupboard.  There was grease and dust everywhere and rice….rice everywhere!  EWWW! I had…
