A weird week

It’s been a weird week. I have been in a bit of a funk lately and have been attempting numerous productivity and positivity tips and tricks from Buzzfeed and The Muse. Some have stuck, some I still struggle with, and some I have bailed on. I also found a new podcast and tried something new. Let’s…

Watch the throne

You may or may not know that I have a puppy. 🙂 Her name is Harley Quinn, and she is perfect! I recently sort-of inherited a weird chair from a family friend and couldn’t help but turn it into a puppy throne. Have you ever seen a chair like this? It showed up on my…

Organization station

Not sure if you have picked up on this, but I am pretty obsessive, meticulous, controlling, etc (In other words – A pleasure to be around 🙂 ) – BUT I will be the first to admit that I do not have my crap together. However, I feel like I do have a decent grasp….

Instant accent wall

A while back, I shared some accent wall considerations. I had recently purchased a new headboard for the master bedroom, which created quite a predicament in our guest room.     Pretty yuck, right? I couldn’t let this tan mash-up last! During a closet clean out, I came across some old (yet, fabulous) curtains. The…

Upcoming staycation

My husband, Tyler, and I first started talking about taking a staycation back in June. The end of August seemed so far away – but it’s almost here! Once our vacation days were approved, I proceeded with spreadsheets of projects, supplies, timelines, etc. The Type A in me was in heaven! We planned on: Re-finishing…

Home office progress

A cabinet catastrophe is turning into a work in progress! Things are happening (no thanks to me). I’m dealing with a bit of a health issue (darn you, sciatic nerve!), and my husband, parents, and pup came to the rescue! I have been traveling a bit this month – driving and flying – and my…

Back to old school

It’s been a rough few weeks in our household! Well, relatively speaking… Life is good 🙂 Our washer just broke. Once again, my parents came to the rescue and helped with a few loads of laundry. I felt like I was in college again! Dropping off laundry also “gave my mom a reason” to stop by…

Cabinet catastrophe

What a weekend! Usually, I’m very prepared and have gathered all needed supplies and materials throughout the week that I will need for my weekend project, but this time was a little different. I needed some sort of cabinet or closet organizer or something to put at the far end of our bedroom. This vagueness was…

K-cup storage solution

A simple Pinterest search shows that there are many cute and effective ways to store K-cups. For the past couple of years, my Keurig* has been sitting atop a very utilitarian drawer…   *This fancy turquoise Keurig is a newer addition to the house. We received a black machine as a wedding gift last year. Unfortunately,…

Mailbox makeover

Our house still needs a TON of work, and its easy to get overwhelmed. I’m trying to to take one project at a time (no matter how big or small) to make sure every weekend is productive. I recently decided to tackle updating our mailbox. We started with this: Black mailbox, weathered reddish/brown stain, dirt…
