Makeover


Master Bedroom Progress in 2016 5

I’ve mentioned in several posts that I’m working to re-do our master bedroom.  Re-do isn’t really the right word…rather, I’m fixing all of the mistakes I made when we first moved in and thought I was a designer and could make bold choice.  *purple accent walls* cough *yellow gold curtains* cough cough I cringed every time I walked into our master bedroom and knew it was one of the first rooms I really needed to put some work into and make it over in a way that I really loved.  I pinned SO MANY pictures on my Master Bedroom Pinterest board (and still pinning to this day!).  It’s one of my favorite time-killing hobbies.  But, a designer I am NOT, so it takes a ton of visual inspiration […]

That Time I Painted My Curtains Black 2

So remember that time I had gold curtains in my bedroom?  Well, I decided I hated them after a short time.  I tried dyeing and bleaching them to no avail.  Finally, I decided to just paint our old curtains black! I had a can of black oops paint that I bought at Lowe’s a couple months ago.  I briefly considered painting our French doors black (which may still happen eventually), but decided the office needed a set of curtains more than a set of black French doors.  So, the painting began… I gotta be honest, I was a little nervous during the process.  The curtain soaked up a TON of paint.  Each panel took one quart of paint!  That was the only downside of this […]


Office Makeover for $100: Before Pictures

We’ve spent the past couple of weeks slowly “making over” our office.  I’m using that term loosely because we wanted to do it on a budget, so it’s not a huge, drastic change.  But, we both think it looks much better.  And for $100, I’ll take it! We completed about 5 projects to makeover the office, and I’ll be sharing them over the next few weeks. You’ve seen most of these pictures before, but here they are again to remind you of the sad, sad state that was our office! Since this is one of the first rooms you see when you enter our house, I wanted it to look just a little better. I’ll be sharing our first project on Thursday!   Stay tuned…
