The Staged House | Living Room Reveal

Time for another before and after from my mother-in-law’s house. And this one is a favourite!

You know what they say about first...…READ MORE

A Quick Master Bedroom Refresh…plus a new family member!

Bet I got you going there! Nope, I haven’t been secretly pregnant for the past nine months (although, it would have been a good explanation for my tardiness around here).

So sorry! One project I can quickly share however is these plant pots...…READ MORE

Easy DIY Shaker Peg Rail

Of all the ways to add a bit of custom charm to a standard DIY kitchen, I think shaker peg rails might just be my favourite! This rail wasn’t part of my original plan for the suite extension kitchenette, but over the past few months it’s like they’ve been teasing me by showing up in...…READ MORE

The Suite Extension Bathroom Reveal!

It may have been a long time coming but the bathroom reveal is finally here! Just to recap, and for anyone new to my blog, this bathroom is part of an upper level suite extension at my parent’s house. So, in a departure from my usual “make the most” style of decorating – where I...…READ MORE

Yeah, I know it’s not the funnest kids’ gift in the world, though I knew she would...…READ MORE
