The long wall is stained and turned out great. The other three walls are painted. The couch, coffee table and the wall opposite the long planked wall need to be ...continue reading

My New Favorite Sign

I stopped in Kohls the other day to pick up one thing and ended up leaving with my new favorite sign. Usually that happens when I go to the food store. Who am I kidding? It happens when I go to Target and HomeGoods too. :) I found the perfect spot for it in the dining room. I have been looking for something to hang on that wall since we moved in- 5 ...continue reading

Once I get home, my inspiration wanes and I have ...continue reading
