My mom and I found this gorgeous magnolia wreath at Pier 1, and we both LOVED it. A couple weeks later, one appeared at my front door, because my mom is awesome! So then I had this beautiful wreath and no idea where I wanted to put it. I had planned to hang it on
Alright now, I’ve been away from this blog for quite some time. It keeps nagging at me in the back of my mind, but I never seem to make it a priority. But I have a lot of projects I really want to share, and I’m going to TRY to be good in the coming weeks about
I’m kind of sad that I’ve been neglecting this blog for the last several months, but it’s been for good reason. I actually started a furniture business! I feel like the word “business” is a bit formal for what I’m doing. It’s just little old me building furniture for people in my super messy garage.

I’m 95% sure it was original to the house, which means it was 20 years old. Please revel with me for a moment in just how disgusting a 20-year-old carpet is in a BATHROOM.
One night while I was brushing my teeth, I started picking at a corner of the wallpaper in my master bathroom. That’s when I realized how easily it peeled away from the wall. I tore off a little piece, then another one, then a slightly larger one…and it felt so good that I just kept going. When I
Well, I started this website about four months ago, super excited to start sharing the projects I had going on around the house, and then….nothing.
