Reading Nook in the Master Bedroom

I painted our master bedroom this weekend, and it's almost ready to show off.  In the meantime, one small corner is finished! The room started out a basic off-white with yellow undertones and just didn't work with my furniture.  Here's the before: We have a huge deck off the back and … [Read more...]

My Daughter’s New Bedroom

I am proud to be a HomeRight Brand Ambassador.  While I am given products to try and am compensated for my time, all of my opinions are 100% my own. I'm back to show you my daughter's new room, now that it's (mostly) finished and decorated, and tell you how painting it was a snap--cathedral … [Read more...]

Painting My Daughter’s New Room

As I mentioned in this post, I took a quick trip up to North Carolina right after Memorial Day to paint a few rooms and have my "orientation" to our new house and all of its systems--things like how the water filter works, where all the cold air returns are located, and troubleshooting the … [Read more...]

A New Mirror for My Daughter’s Room

My aunt and uncle visited a few weeks ago during their spring break--they live in Michigan and enjoy coming down here where it's actually WARM during early April!

Updates in the Master Bedroom–A New Bench

I bought a new bench for the foot of our bed last week.  Then I moved the one that was here up to our guest room, which was the whole point--I wanted something up there for guests to open their suitcases on.

Our New White Bed (And Our Master Bedroom)

Happy New Year's Eve!  If you're like me, December has gone by in a big blur--I can hardly believe it's almost time to take down all the Christmas decorations and start organizing my house and exercising (yes, I do all the same stuff in January that everyone else does! :).  I didn't do much around … [Read more...]

A new baby and a new house!

Here is a bit of what's been going on with the other two of us while Christy's been covering 11 Magnolia Lane over the last two weeks! She did a great job, of course :) She is now in the midst of preparing to move, and winding up the school year, so I told her I would jump back in and give everyone … [Read more...]

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

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. In our historic house in North Carolina, her room was pinks and greens with tons of vintage … [Read more...]
