I am loving the whole trend of Christmas trees in containers. And while the budget is tight this Christmas, I stumbled upon a solution that I’m quite happy with and I want to share it with you! Since we’ve been married (going on 6 years), we’ve gotten a live tree every year. They’re usually on…

There are a ton of AMAZING tablescapes happening on Pinterest and all over the web. Jaw dropping. However, for my small little space and table, it is not very practical for our needs. So I put together a skinny little simple fall tablescape that can stay on your table WHILE you’re eating! This has even…

Warning: All of the following photos are quite beautiful….and they are trying to kill you!  Not really, but it is true that while some elements look great photographed, I would not recommend you doing the same thing in your home.  Here are 3 Pinterest examples that I want to review: Do’s and Dont’s… Photo Via…

Antique Finish Stand Mirror Stylist Notes: Great Detail Can be re-painted Can be used at the end of a narrow hallway, in the corner of a room, etc.

Vintage Wooden Trash Can Holder Stylist Notes: Nice, unique piece Paintable Can be re-purposed as a holder for rolls of paper, craft supplies, etc  

Home Fitness equipment is not very pleasing on the eye, it’s like a big, black vortex, sucking the beauty out of whatever room it is in (unless you specifically have a room for that purpose, then that is fine).  We have a treadmill that I try to use on a regular basis and it dwells…

I have been burning a lot of candles recently in light of Diamond Candle excitement ;)  This is what I learned recently: “tunneling,” is when the wax on the sides of the candle don’t melt with the middle part of the candle, so it stays higher on the sides, while the middle melts down.   I…

In my quest to not accumulate TOO many things, I enjoy finding interesting ways to use the items I already have.  Case in point: Here’s a simple serving table set up with some nontraditional resources that you can use from inside your home when an outdoor gathering.  Many of us are still using our outdoor…

  You know how sometimes you just happen to come up with a simple solution and you feel really proud….but then also at the same time you feel a little foolish, thinking “well this was so simple, why didn’t I think of it a long time ago!”  That’s how I felt about this quick tip!…

  Have any extra floor tiles laying around from a project in your house or did you get a full size sample from a store? Well, well, well, do I have a simple DIY for you! Simply attach some felt or rubber floor protectors on the bottom of your tile and voila! Now you have…

  I can’t even express how much I love multi-use items! I had been wanting some clear swing top glass bottles for a while now and I just couldn’t bring myself to pay even $3 for 1 bottle (that’s cheap, I know).  Imagine my elation when I came upon these French sparkling lemonades at Aldi…

HEY YO! I am super excited about the Spring and the plans for our yard. I don’t remember if I ever wrote about our pallet veggie boxes, but we’ve had them for a while now and wanted to put a nicer facade/hold the dirt in without using garbage bags! Below is how they have looked…

I posted a couple of weeks ago about burlap and that was a pre-cursor to this very post! Burlap is so versatile and a pretty inexpensive fabric that it just seemed like the most logical choice for my ottoman cover. Before this, I had quickly sewn together brown remnant fabric I had on hand to…

I love checkered floors (on a diagonal), especially in kitchens and this was my inspiration for painting the runner rug for my kitchen. I have wanted a runner for the kitchen for awhile now and I didn’t want to have a bunch of smaller rugs littering the floor.  I found an indoor/outdoor jute rug on…

If you don’t know already, I am in love with the store Anthropologie….thankfully there is one at the Millenia Mall in Orlando, FL. One of my clients has some mermaid paraphernalia and wanted her bathroom to have that theme. Side note: I am very picky about “themed” rooms; the concept of having a themed room…

***From March 9, 2010*** This was a cool project that I decided to do based on the SabbeSpot posting of the chevron wall she completed at her residence. Although I originally wanted large mirrors on that wall to enlarge and lighten the space, I had to re-think based on my budget. Enter creativity. Since I…

Butcher Block Counter tops that is! . My kitchen counters have always been a work in progress.  When we first put in the kitchen our budget was just enough to put granite in one spot and we chose our center island which is more of the focal point of the kitchen and opted for inexpensive…

The original dining room plan did not include a china hutch, but after some thorough “Craigslisting” to find to new dining chairs (new to me), the ones I chose so happened to come with a table and a hutch (all for $60, by the way….TOTAL steal!). So enter “hutch,” which I welcomed with open arms,…

When I approached Loi with the idea of documenting my unexpected remodel she was so enthusiastic that she asked me if I would be a guest blogger on her site to share our project with her readers .  So here I am and thank you Loi for having me! Our unintentional remodel came about because…
