Easy Shiplap Tutorial

Shiplap is a look that is definitely “in” right now… and I have always loved the look of it. I wanted to shiplap the wall behind our fireplace and have done a lot of research for a while now on the best way to do it. I felt like it either looked too complicated (measuring!Continue reading “Easy Shiplap Tutorial”

Benjamin Moore Stratton Blue HC-142

Our family owns a very old mountain cabin in the Carolina mountains. We have been thinking about doing some fun project ideas that I’m sure you will see here in the future… but in the meantime, I made a little change and painted the door to the bathroom. The color I chose was Stratton BlueContinue reading “Benjamin Moore Stratton Blue HC-142”

DIY: Repurposing a Wooden Sign

There was one more wooden sign that was in my son’s room that screamed “don’t get rid of me!”. It was a nice, circular wooden sign that was designed to look like a baseball. It’s almost 3 feet in diameter, so it’s a great size! I envisioned turning it into a farmhouse-ish sign for myContinue reading “DIY: Repurposing a Wooden Sign”

Playroom Organization Ideas

In our house, we have an open “loft” area that we use for a kids’ area. My kids are probably a little too old for a “playroom”, but it’s where video games, a tv, legos and more are. It is almost always a disaster- this is what it typically looks like: One of my goalsContinue reading “Playroom Organization Ideas”

After my first wallpaper experience (and by wallpaper, I’m talking about the peel-and-stick kind, not the official kind), I was sure I wouldn’t do it again. But… Amazon gets me.

Adding French Doors to an Open Space

Another thing we did in our old house’s office was close in a wall and add French doors. The original spot that divided our office and dining room was really just a big opening, and we wanted the two rooms to have more of a separation from each other. Stephen and our neighbor, Billy, measuredContinue reading “Adding French Doors to an Open Space”

Adding a Wall to Open Stairs

The last thing we did in our old house’s office was close in a wall where the stairs were once open, and add a single french-style door. We wanted to be able to close in the office to be an independent room, closing off some of the “open concept” that our house offered. I’ll showContinue reading “Adding a Wall to Open Stairs”

Benjamin Moore Pleasant Valley 696 (Paint)

You may recall the post I did about the Garden Oasis paint by Benjamin Moore that my mom used in her house. It’s a beautiful darker green shade. She also used a similar lighter shade of this color in her bedroom… it’s called Pleasant Valley 696. It is a beautiful green hue with some silverContinue reading “Benjamin Moore Pleasant Valley 696 (Paint)”

Benjamin Moore Garden Oasis 699 (Paint)

My mom painted two bathrooms in her house a gorgeous green color. It’s called Garden Oasis 699 by Benjamin Moore, and it is a deep green shade (described as an “herb green” on the Benjamin Moore website). This shade provides a nice warmth to rooms painted in it. Check out the couple of bathrooms paintedContinue reading “Benjamin Moore Garden Oasis 699 (Paint)”
