    Simple Hairpin Tables

    Our front room has always been a mismatch of different furniture. I never knew what I wanted to do with it, and to be honest I still don’t really know. The ceilings are around 20 feet high and it’s a little separated from the rest of the house, so it just feels like a daunting task at times to fill the space. We finally found the couch we love and have decided to make the room more livable for our family. So we won’t just avoid the room! Next step, was a coffee table. Read more…

    Stencil a small area for BIG impact

    Hi ya’ll!! Happy Monday.

    I wanted to do a little post about the stencil I painted behind my TV. When we moved in, there was one of those built-in units to put a big box television and all your other electronics. It was hideous. For a while I had no idea what to do with it. Such a wasted space! We finally decided to just demo the top half, and rip it out- and leave the bottom half. Then we could just hang our TV on the wall. Perfect! I guess it’s a little funky, but for us it works and I think it’s a cute little nook.

    I have changed the wall behind the TV 3 different times since we did this. I had wallpaper there at first, and another stencil at one point. I just couldn’t make up my mind!! LOL. But, I guess that is what is SO great about paint, you can always just paint over for a fresh look. It’s an affordable and fun way to update a space. Read more…


    Ditch the kids for your spouse more often!

    When you get married, you have all the best intentions to keep everything the same in your relationship as while you were dating. I can remember having conversations with my hubby pre-kids that went something like this “When we have kids, we are going to put our relationship first and they have to fit into OUR life exactly the way we live it now.” Ha…ha…ha…. Once you have kids, things inevitably change. It becomes hard to focus on each other the way you did when it was only the two of you. ESPECIALLY when you have a second child. Then, it’s like everything in life just exploded and you are both just trying to survive on a daily basis! But, that’s a whole other blog post! In all seriousness though, taking time for one another is tough. You are both so tired by the end of the day, that it can be easier to just get in your pjs and stay in. Read more…
