With three little ones all needing to show up at school with something for each classmate, I have learned the hard way to NOT try to do it ALL the night before! Here is a sampling of some of our past projects. The printable file is under the image. … [Read more...]

My Daughter’s Room–Updated {Yes, Again!} in Aqua Blue, Brown, and Pink

Tween Girl Bedroom at 11 Magnolia Lane

This post feels a bit like Groundhog Day, because this isn't the first time I've written a post on my daughter's room redo!  My daughter's style is constantly changing, and her room has changed along with it.

One thing we did shortly after moving in our house was switch our dining room table with our kitchen table.  Our switch was more of an experiment, but I liked it so much we've kept it that way ever since. Recently I have spoken to several people who have done the same thing so I no longer think … [Read more...]

  I'm sure you've noticed I've been doing quite a few pet-related posts lately, because we're now up to two dogs, a geriatric cat, and a hamster.  There has to be a system in place, or chaos (and animal hair) reigns!

Laundry Room Makeover

  I didn't start with an ugly laundry room by any means, but when you spend SO much time in a space, I figured there wasn't any reason not to make it more enjoyable! Here is the laundry room as it was when we moved in. We were lucky to have a tile floor, cabinets and even a chandelier but it … [Read more...]
