Hi everyone!  It’s been a busy month around here as Pookie and I continue to tackle the bajillion projects that accompany a whole house remodel.  Here’s a little of what I’ve been up to since the last time that I hosted.


I finally finished the last little item and was able to reveal my fireplace makeover.  It was a hot mess of dated brick, oak trim and a brass fireplace door before.

Don’t you love beachy style?  I know I do.  I did all of the research and gave you a list of resources for recreating this beachy family room on budget.

We all could use some extra storage and organization, right?  I started a new series called, “Do It In A Weekend”, and shared how easy it would be to add storage to the inside of a closet door.
