Just ask my husband, and he will tell you I can spend countless hours trying to decide on certain household decor items. An area rug is one item that can take over my life, and another huge time-taking decision is a sofa. The sofa is where your family will spend the most quality time together after a long day. Or where you curl up to relax and watch a good movie. It’s the focal point of a room, and a big decision.
Our back living room was in major need of a new sofa. The furniture was lumpy and stained. The fabric was pilling up so much that I had to purchase an upholstery shaver, just to try to keep up with the all the little balls that kept covering the surface. NO thank you!
While on my long sofa hunt, I found an online modern furniture company called Article. I was so drawn to the clean lines, and modern yet comfortable vibe of their pieces. I found that I continued coming back to look at their sectional sofas online.
One of the issues my room has, is that it’s very small and the way it is setup makes it difficult to arrange furniture, as there is really only one wall to put a sofa against. I always assumed a sectional would never work, I needed a small basic sofa for this space. I was wrong! Article sectionals have everything we needed!
I didn’t need to see Article’s sectionals in person to know the Sven Birch Ivory Sectional would fit like a glove in my space. Even if it didn’t work in my home, Article includes a 30 day return policy if what you choose isn’t just right. They will come right back over and pick it up! Their website is super user friendly, and because they function solely online, they are able to keep their fabulous prices. I chose the exact sofa I wanted and it was hand delivered and set up right where I wanted it, by the two nicest guys! Such an easy and positive experience.
I am absolutely loving the chaise on the Sven Sectional. It’s the perfect little spot to lounge with the kids, and provides quite a bit of extra seating when we have guests. The ivory/gray fabric works beautifully with the style in my room and has a soft yet textured feel. I was also impressed with the density of the tufted seat cushions, I think they will hold up for many years! Our Article sectional really complements the space and doesn’t overpower it.
Not only do Article sectionals are available in a variety of fabric options, Article also has many gorgeous leather furniture pieces as well. I’ve been eyeballing some other accent furniture for my home.
Overall, my experience with Article sectionals was top-notch!
I will be adding more Article goodness somewhere in the house… maybe the bedroom! Go check them out and find your perfect sectional.
Happy Sofa Shopping!

Spring is finally here!! Isn’t it so funny how there is an automatic switch in your mindset when the flowers begin to bloom and the sun starts shining? At least there is for myself. The term “Spring Cleaning” is a real thing! The sun shines and you just want to make your house feel fresh and bright as well.
I wanted to let you know about a few great products that made me say, YAY! this Spring.
Refinish Your Cabinets With N-Hance
Now, you know I am the lady of all DIY home improvement projects. I will tear apart a room and redo it all myself in between, naps and school time. Most people don’t want to take on big projects on their own, and I don’t blame you! It’s so nice to have quality, affordable options when you want to start a home improvement project.
One of the most important rooms in any home is the kitchen. Everyone spends time there. So the first thing we think about updating are the cabinets. I know first hand that this is one BIG project to do on your own. N-Hance is the company to talk to when looking for a professional. They refinish over 8,000 kitchens a year, it’s their specialty!
N-Hance uses an acrylic- polyurethane blend this is cured with an ultraviolet light. This gives your cabinets an immediate, rock-hard finish. The company sent me over a Refinishing durability test-kit, to prove the strength of their product. They included sand paper, a penny and a hammer to allow me to test the durability. Here are the before and afters.
I was really impressed with the strength of the finish. Makes my DIY paint job look like child’s play! The N-Hance cabinet was just barely effected by the hammer and sandpaper. Not at all by the penny. I’m Sold! By professionally refinishing your existing cabinets, you will save thousands of dollars compared to a kitchen remodel.
A Dream Come True With ECOVACS DEEBOT
The next Spring essential product that is basically a Mom’s dream come true, is the The ECOVACS DEEBOT 600. Does that sound fancy, or what? It is a robotic vacuum that does all the work for you. Clean with just a click of a button, anytime from anywhere, through the ECOVACS app.
You can literally set the DEEBOT to clean from work so your house is clean before you even get home. Or schedule regular cleanings to occur at certain times. Also, it’s compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Smart-Home systems. So I can boss it around just like Alexa. I’m sorry… but YES please!
I have a mix of rugs and wood flooring in my home, and this vacuum has smart motion to detect the mode that is needed for each surface. I don’t have to lift a finger. This is a no-brainer. We all must have a DEEBOT at home. Available online at multiple retailers, find a link to your favorite on ECOVACS.com.
Make Washing Dishes Fun With The Scrub Daisy®
The last product for your Spring home refresher needs, is the cutest of the bunch! This is The Scrub Daisy® dishwand system. My kids love it, because it’s so colorful and fun- it actually makes them excited to help with the dishes.
The Scrub Daisy® by Scrub Daddy has interchangeable cleaning heads, for cleaning anything from bottles to pans. I think it’s pretty much the worst, when you go to clean a bottle and your only cleaning wand wont fit. So I think the interchangeable cleaning heads is genius. Each head incorporates three exclusive materials: FlexTexture® to scrub, ResoFoam® for suds, and ArmorTec®, to scour.
The handle is ergonomic and soap dispensing. It also comes with self-draining storage for all your accessories. So cool, who knew I needed this?? I do! Use this link for $1 off any Scrub Daddy Product: https://scrubdaddy.com/coupons/scrub-daddy-coupons/
I hope you found something fun to help you refresh your home this Spring!
I have been dying to update our playroom for so long. It was a disorganized mess, and it looked like all the primary colors had thrown-up in there. I wanted a space where the kids could play, imagine and have fun! We also use it for our guest room when people come to visit, so although the room is REALLY small, I needed to keep a twin size bed inside.
I had previously removed the closet doors to make the room feel bigger, and give more useable space. That’s about as far as I had gotten…the playroom moved to the back of the line behind other projects in the house. Now that the kids are both a little older, I didn’t want to put it off any longer. So here is their new space! I think I want to claim it for myself and call it Mommy’s room instead.
