Our Upholstered Bed Frame

I had been dreaming of buying an upholstered bed frame for quite some time. I’m sure you have caught a few pictures of it here and there, but I have never actually shared any info about our bed! I really love it. It has simple lines, and is a great neutral linen color. We purchased…

Small Dresser Makeover

I have been on the hunt for small dressers to use as bedside tables for a long time. I found this set, and thought they were perfect candidates for a dresser makeover. New nightstands can be pretty pricey, so finding these for $25 each felt like a bargain. I made sure they were solid wood,…

Our Master Bedroom Update

I think I am with the masses when I say that our Master Bedroom has always been the last space I’ve given thought to decorating… as long as we’ve been married, it always seems to be the place we throw everything when company is coming. It holds the laundry baskets and papers… I usually work…

White Washed Wall in Our Bedroom

I am happy to say that our bedroom wall is DONE! I used a simple white wash technique to tone down the yellow of the pine, which allowed me to maintain the character of the wood grain. Initially I had planned to use a pre-mixed stain called Sunbleached. However, when I opened it up, it was…

Coastal Cottage Master Bedroom Style Board

After stripping the door and finding bedding I love, I am trying to be more intentional about the choices I make for our bedroom design. I am not by habit an intentional shopper. For example, I rarely make a shopping list for what I need {want} before walking into a store. I tend to be the…

Stripping Our Antique Door

Earlier this summer I shared a few shots of our closet door on a “barn door” track. The track actually came out of a mechanics building that we purchased and now use as a film and sound studio for my husbands business. I spray painted all the hardware with matte black paint. The door was the…

Ticking Chair Reveal {Farmhouse Style Makeover}

Several years ago we inherited a chair from Matt’s brother. It had seen better days, and was rather wobbly. The chair once belonged to Matt’s Oma. I had always carried the hope that one day I could give it new life! I loved the shape of it, and it is quite comfortable. It is with…

My Writing Nook

So after I wrote about wanting to find a place for everything, I got really motivated and started tackling the sorting station that is our room! I have quite a few bags of items to donate, and it feels good. I can also see all of the floor, and have put away the boys things.…

Painting Wicker, the Tale of a Nightstand

I have to be honest… I wanted to paint this nightstand simply because, I don’t like it. It’s not that I felt really inspired by it’s beauty, and wanted to better bring it out… no, it’s that I was tired of the very orange wood. We bought this when we were first married… with a…

Dreaming of A Clean Room

Our Master Bedroom is neglected. I know we aren’t the only ones… you don’t have to look past an Ikea commercial to know that it seems to be a cultural norm. The drop zone. The pieced together, leftover space. To all that have a beautiful bedroom to retreat to, I salute you! Our bedroom has…

Tickety Boo

You know the saying “Everything is moving along Tickety Boo” ? At least I think that’s a saying… I would love if I could move everything along at “Bippity Boppity Boo.” Where is my fairy godmother? But alas, things only move along when you put in the work. Sometimes the finished product seems SO FAR…
