Wood Wall Planking Time

Growing up we had this awful amazing faux wood paneling on our living room walls.  You know what I am talking about right?  The faux wood kind with vertical lines.  So when I say “wood planked walls” I am not meaning the faux wood particle board type. The wood paneling I am totally having a […]

Navy Island and Amazing Light Fixtures

I was perusing Young House Love’s blog this week, and I came across some fun pics of a showhouse they’re helping with. I don’t know much about it, but the kitchen reminded me of what my neighbor, Paige, wants to do in hers. So I stopped to take a deeper look. I adore the gray cabinets with […]

Salvage Show Junkie

There are three shows my husband and I recently found that we’re completely addicted to: “West End Salvage,” “Salvage Dawgs,” and “Picker Sisters.” On each of these shows, the shop owners buy and find salvage items that they can repurpose into new pieces, new designs, or just give them new homes. What’s not to love? We […]


Purchases Lately

Desk Area Update

So a while ago I shared with you that I bought this table from iKea, and that I wanted to turn it into my desk in my bedroom. I got it a couple months ago and painted the legs gold. You might be able to tell that I haven’t taken the plastic off the top […]

Trellis on a Budget

This is not a newsflash – Kelly Wearstler’s Imperial Trellis pattern has been around the home decor design block.  A time or two. But for great reason – c’mon the pattern is incredible.  It has become the modern day herringbone. It is a pattern that can dictate and take over a room.  But in a […]

Hilary’s Challenge

Remember our friend Carla? After her article in November, her friend Hilary contacted me and Jill to see if we could help her out as well. Hilary has a gorgeous home near Kansas City’s historic Plaza. It’s a Tudor with tons of character. I mean, look at her front door??? Hilary and her husband have […]
