Updated Guest Room

Hello! Come on in! This is our guest room (aka napping room). I have struggled with what this room should be because it’s sort of a free space in the home. It’s off of the foyer so it could work as a parlor, den or office but my original intentions were to make it a…

Snow is a special treat here in southern Virginia. We got 12 inches in one day. I had to capture the snow surrounding our home because it is rare. I love the contrast of dark and white. The boys were “game” for a photo, too. An even more rare moment in time! We live on…

An Office for Her

I have struggled with an idea of what to make of this front room. We had french doors put here because it’s just off the foyer. The model home of our builder had one similar to this and I thought it was super pretty. I liked the option of making it a music room or…

Upgrade that Builder Kitchen Island

You know when you are building a house and you have that thing called “a budget”? No matter how big or small it is, it never seems to cover everything you want. What I did before every appointment with our builder was think about the skills I do have and skills I don’t have. I went with…

Tool Box Table Runner

This is a super quick project I did last week to bring some color into the dining room. We had a couple of 1×4 wood common boards in the garage. This long, narrow box is simply screwed together and painted in Vine Green by Ben Moore. I filled it with greenery. It took nine small…
