This was one of those projects that started out being one thing and morphed into another. You know the kind right? Not going to lie. This was a bit of a pain in the you-know-what, but we're fairly happy with the end results!
This room was a journey. It started out as the master bedroom at the front of the house. But one day, we decided the light was perfect for it to be transformed into our blogging office.
Our cabinet space is limited in our tiny kitchen. But we did have 8 inches of unused space beside our fridge. So we built a rolling pantry to hold all our canned goods and dry food!
I think we can file this among the most crazy projects I've ever done. You see, I was in a 'challenge' and I was facing a deadline and I had to figure out what to do with a piece of plywood and metallic paint. Well, wouldn't you know, I clamped that plywood to my Work-mate and after about an hour (plus dry time) I had myself a gigantic metallic letter to hang on the wall of our family room!
I'm ashamed to admit this, but here goes nothing! We have lived in our wonderful (imperfect) home for five years - and it wasn't until this passed weekend that I realized all the door knobs on our bedroom floor were different. *face palm* haha I mean, I guess door knobs aren't really something you think about until they stop working or you get locked in a room ... but once I noticed? Well, then something had to change!
Our dining room was in a sad state, for a while. We moved in a replaced a broken ceiling fan with a pendant light fixture and freshened the walls with a can of white paint and that was it. It's in a weird place at the centre of the home and has three doorways - to the living room, to the kitchen and into my office, so finding a 'wall treatment' was a challenge because you can see the space from so many angles.
Projects that highlight the beauty of the moon and the skies are really popular right now! It seems like it's a big trend to harness the power of the moon and integrate it into home decor. It's especially popular in nurseries and in my case, my home office! Here's how I made a Moon Phase Wall Hanging out of simple supplies.
If you've been following along with us on our blog or here on Hometalk, you'll know the last furniture reclaim we did was our dining buffet - AND you'll know that we removed the top drawers. Well, you didn't think we'd let them go to waste, did you? ;)
We are trying to add some texture and rustic charm to our 'new-to-us' kitchen. This open shelf was created when we relocated our fridge and it was a boring, blah space. We added a little 'something' with this herringbone back splash made from wood shims. Bonus? It's completely removable down the line!
