CLICK HERE TO VOTE FOR ME! Well, hello there! Remember me? Sorry I disappeared for a few weeks. I know it probably seems like I was doing little more than enjoying the summer sun, however, amidst sipping rosé and splashing in the ocean waves (which, let’s face it, are obligatory tasks), some serious decorating has ....Continue reading….
If you’re anything like me, you probably have a cumbersome stash of old Christmas baubles taking up way too much precious real estate in your meager Christmas storage space. Remember the time you thought it would be cool to have a multi-coloured tree? Then there was the “white” year. Followed by the “natural” year. Preceded ....Continue reading….
Thanks so much for all the lovely comments about the room makeover at my parent’s house. Before I share all of the source and project info, I wanted to chime in with a quick post about one of the most mentioned elements – the “new” grey door.

This project has been on my “to do” list for waaaaay too long. Over three years ago now we ripped up the terrible old carpet in my parent’s retreat (“retreat” sounds super fancy though it’s really just a modest sitting room adjoining their master bedroom) then pondered what we could do to cheaply and easily ....Continue reading….
Do you guys remember when I shared some pics of this simple concrete vessel I made a few months back… Well, I received quite a few requests for a tutorial so have spent the past few weeks perfecting my process (and learning more than I will ever need to know about concrete!) so I can ....Continue reading….
I love it when the launch of a new product provides the perfect excuse to tackle a well over-due project. Such was the case with the release of Black Wax by Annie Sloan. Teamed with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in “Antibes Green” it seemed like the perfect way to jazz-up some blah file drawers I bought ....Continue reading….
I have a thing for old wire baskets. You? Well, if you do too it seems we’re not alone. Have you noticed how pricey they can be at old-wares stores and antique markets nowadays? Man! Anyhoo, after I shared this pic of Charlotte’s new bedroom shelves a few weeks back… …I received quite a few ....Continue reading….
