Thanks TOH + Updates

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

First of all, thank you everyone for sharing your opinions on bunk beds!  Wow, it is so great reading your insight (read 100+ fantastic comments here if you’re considering them too), I’m so grateful for your thoughts!

Second, I’d like to say thanks to This Old House for the feature in the March issue – they asked me to submit pictures of my DIY drying rack for their article featuring great ideas from bloggers (you’ll recognize several of your favorites!)

The rack is still one of my favorite DIY projects to date and I use it almost daily.

Find the full how to build it in this old post!

     

Exciting news, I’ll be updating the blog soon, giving it a more polished look, but all the navigation features will still be there (Project Gallery, Style Files, etc.) All of the ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ links will be categorized in an easy to browse gallery too, you’ll love that! Finally, I copied all the past magazine articles last night on my antiquated scanner (took forever) but if you’re interested you can read them all here – just click on the cover.

Are y’all ready for Valentine’s Day? My daughter chose that day for her birthday party so I’ve got to get busy decorating… no school on Friday so we’ll have 14 little girls in our house tomorrow evening, crafting, eating, and watching movies. So romantic right?  Ah, the sacrifices of parenthood!  :)

Updates and Other Things

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Hello everyone, I’m in between projects today with a few different things going on so here’s a list of random thoughts and miscellaneous updates.  But first if anyone is seeing a old gray header on the site up above from 2009, please just hit Control + F5 to refresh your screen.

1.  I’m a pinning fool on Pinterest lately, and have a lot of new boards over there. I’m going to help my friend construct some built-in benches for a corner breakfast nook, so dining spaces are on my mind.  Speaking of Pinterest (and general *pinch me* topics) I was asked by Better Homes & Gardens to contribute to their boards and since it’s my favorite magazine I wholeheartedly agreed so you can find all those pins here and here – I hope you’ll follow along!

2.  Lover of all things paint that I am, don’t miss my latest article for My Colortopia on Three Steps to Choosing the Right Paint Color

three steps revised

 

3.  My friend Danielle just launched a new website today called The Everygirl, I’m very excited for her.  The site is all about female entrepreneurs, businesswomen, and bloggers with a focus on all sorts of things from budget-friendly fashion to interior design features.  I’ll be guest posting there next week!

4.  I’m in a furniture refinishing frenzy right now, just finished up a dresser last week and now I’m working on some end tables and a pedestal table too.  All of these pieces are for friends – I’ll be sharing those makeovers in the next week or so. 

Here’s a sneak peek of the after!

Kidding.  Of course those are the befores…
