The fireplace is supposed to be the focal point of the room, the heart of the home, but when we bought our home almost 3 years ago, it was the complete opposite! This is how we are slowly transforming our fireplace from roadie into rockstar. I instantly go back a few years every time I pull up one of these old photos. This is a picture of our home when it was on the market. That pink carpet, cream trim and… Read more

Do you ever look at a piece of furniture and just think….meh? Years ago, we bought an entertainment center that fit our decor and our style, but as time goes by and styles change, my beautiful piece was not-so-pretty anymore. This is how I took my lackluster console and transformed it with this easy Entertainment Center Makeover. Last week, I had just popped some popcorn and we had started to sit down for some family TV time. I just couldn’t relax… Read more

Once upon a time, there was a kitchen island. It wasn’t a grand kitchen island.  It started with humble beginnings and simple surroundings. And it was happy in its simple surroundings. Then one day, the world around the kitchen island suddenly changed.  The cabinets, walls and floors weren’t so simple and this little kitchen island needed a new dress to fit in at the ball. Okay, it didn’t exactly happen like that, but it kind of did. In true fairy… Read more

Mondays. Cue my inner Garfield the cat, because this Monday was the Monday-est of all Mondays. I woke up burdened. I wasn’t my typical cheery self, sprinkling sunshine on our breakfast while singing songs over my cup of coffee while completely ignoring the eye rolls from the teenager. Not this Monday.

My in-laws had a chair that was on it’s last leg sitting in their body shop. Here’s how I took this eyesore and turned it into a showpiece – my no sew method to reupholstering a wingback chair. I’m sure this wingback was a stunner 30 years ago, standing tall in it’s… Read more

I’m a failure as a mother. Oh, I wish I could smile and laugh and tell you that being a mom is the easiest, most rewarding thing I’ve ever done, all while having perfect hair, the cutest outfit and my lipstick just so, but I can’t lie. Sometimes it’s tough. Sometimes I am overflowing with love for my boys that suddenly transforms to instant rage within a few seconds without any warning. Remember my Mommy Dearest moment – minus the lashings? Friends,… Read more
