Whirlpool is “Out of this World”

Whirlpool_YourFutureInFocus_Logo_Vertical_1

One of my favorite shows growing up was the Jetsons.  Everything was so modern and futuristic; all they had to do was push a button and breakfast was served.  They had buttons and gadgets for styling hair, getting dressed, making dinner and to top it all off, they even had a robot that cleaned up … [Read more...]

Flea Market Find: Milk Painted Kitchen Cabinet

Close up of Cabinet

How is everyone enjoying their summer?   My boys are enjoying the time off from school and the baby is getting so big.  I really hate that summer is almost over and that school is starting back up mid August.   On the flip side, I do look forward to having more time to focus on projects, painting, … [Read more...]

DIY Vintage Sign

full sign done

I have wanted a vintage "Groceries" sign to hang over my pantry just like Christy had over her wall calendar but haven't been able to find one. So, I decided to make one. This actually was a part of the chalkboard paint projects we recently posted about on Tatertots and Jello, but I never actually … [Read more...]

Things I Would Do to My Kitchen (if I could do it all over again)

kitchen from BH&G Kitchen & Bath Makeovers

As most of you know, we're pulling up stakes and moving in just a few months, and so it's time to look back at what I've accomplished around the house in the almost-tw-years that we've been in Nashville.  All in all, I'm pretty proud of what we've done with this house. The kitchen was by far my … [Read more...]

My Kitchen~~In A Magazine?! Why, Yes, Thank You, It Is!

Christy's kitchen in BH&G Kitchen + Bath Makeovers Spring 2013

So, yesterday after church, I dragged the kids to Barnes & Noble to see if the Spring 2013 issues of Better Homes & Gardens Kitchen + Bath Makeovers was on the shelves (not that I've been checking every day or anything strange like that).  Well, yesterday, it was there!!  That's MY kitchen … [Read more...]

Painted Tile Backsplash in My Kitchen–A Year Later

Painted tile backsplash in kitchen at 11 Magnolia Lane

  If you're like me, sometimes you wonder how projects hold up over time.  Remember in late 2011, when I decided to paint my ceramic tile kitchen backsplash on a whim?  My reasoning was that it was going to be torn down and replaced anyway, so why not try to paint it first?  I had nothing to … [Read more...]

Dining Room Tables & Kitchen Tables?

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...]

{Amy’s} Updated House Tour

front-door-Amy-optimized1

One of the nicest parts of blogging is that I have a permanent record of all the houses I have {recently} lived in. Of course the reason I haven't shown every room in our current house is because every room hasn't been whipped into 'perfect' blog-worthy shape. However, I have done some updates and … [Read more...]

Christmas Shelves

I have to be honest, it doesn't feel exactly right to write about holiday decor and other lighter topics yet. My heart still just hurts from the events of Friday, I expect it will for awhile. I was reminded in church yesterday that Jesus was born into a dark, dark world. The spirit of the holiday … [Read more...]
