DIY Canvas Photos

by Jennie July 23, 2015


I received some adorable prints to add to Grayson’s new camping themed bedroom from Wildbriar Design and I wanted to use them as canvas prints vs. framing them, because let’s face it, canvas prints are just nicer! I LOVE canvas prints, but they are just so expensive! I found a tutorial on Pinterest ages ago and […]

Camping Themed Bedroom

I have been wanting to write this post for the last few months and for one reason or another it has taken me until now to write it! I blogged awhile back about Cody’s big boy room which included a pretty cool loft bed you could build for your littles. That bed took my hubby many […]


How to Paint Furniture using Chalk Paint

by Jennie January 2, 2015

Chalk Paint

Not sure if you have heard of Chalk Paint before, but it is my new favorite thing! I was completely clueless about how amazing this stuff is and if you google it you will find it is all the rage right now. I was contacted by Rose who owns The Sewing Loft to see if I […]


Laundry Room Makeover

Laundry Room Makeover

Since moving into our house 3 years ago (yikes I can’t believe it has been that long!!), we have been SLOWLY making each room our own. Of course, remodeling and change takes money so it has taken us a lot of time and we still aren’t done, but it has been fun to see the […]


How to Recover a Chair Cushion

by Jennie July 29, 2014

I moved out when I was 18 and I still have the same small dining room set! I know right?! It has always just worked with the space in the different places I have lived so I really haven’t had a need to get something new, but with my boys always spilling drinks and food on […]

kids playroom

I have been wanting to update the kids playroom since we moved here. I wanted to do something fun and get the toys organized and we finally made the time to get it done!  My playroom and laundry room are right next to one another. I wanted to expand the laundry room so we decided […]


Sewing a Metro Pillow: My first sewing project

by Jennie February 5, 2014

I have NO crafty abilities… I try for my kids, but that is as far as it goes! I had so much fun making the boys Wolf Costumes (NO Sewing required!) that I started getting the sewing “itch”! My goal was to be able to hem pants, sew buttons and maybe make some dress up […]


Cozy Wall Art Custom Decals

by Jennie January 13, 2014

I have done several posts on wall decals I have used in my house…. I guess you could say I am a little addicted!! I just love that you can really personalize a space with a decal. I adore cute little sayings and being able to display it in a fun way, using your own […]

by Jennie April 22, 2013

I feel terrible since it has been months and months that I promised pics of my almost completed yard! The day has finally come lol :) There were many things on our “wish list” when looking for a new house and we got almost everything on the list when we got our house, minus a […]


Dealing with the Big Black Box

by Jennie January 18, 2013

So my husband “surprised me” (um yes, he got it for himself, but acted like it was for me!) with a brand new t.v. for Christmas. He was ecstatic since we have had the same t.v. for at least 6, maybe 8 years. It’s a smart t.v. (whatever that means), HD, 3D, and I am […]


Bedroom “Stale” Area Transformed with Uppercase Living

by Jennie November 9, 2012

bedroom window before

There were several things I loved about my house when we first saw it. It was set up differently from most of the other two stories we had seen and it had a few unique design elements to it. One of them was a long window above the bed. It is beautiful and different and […]


Boring Kitchen turned FABULOSO!

by Jennie September 27, 2012

I have blogged over time how we are making our new house our own and that takes TIME! One room at a time that is! I had REALLY been wanting to do something to my kitchen since that is where I spend a lot of my time. I started with having it painted (started out […]
