A Boring and Ugly Staircase

Here's one of those projects I've been putting off for the last 4 years. Its the staircase to our upstairs loft and bedroom area. I was trying to come up with a clever idea but have decided to just be safe and clean it up and paint it. I'm hoping to be done in the next couple days. The area is prepped and cleaned (boring) and so tomorrow I'll start the painting. Come back to see the final results!

Farewell Summer time to put the Patio Furniture Away

I have mentioned it more then once but I am really sad to see summer come to an end. I feel like we barely had any warm days to sit on our porch and enjoy the weather and we didn't get to the pool one time. So as everyone else is excited about cashmere sweaters and new boots I'm totally bummed to have to put away my outdoor furniture and flip flops for the next 7 or 8 months.

Organizing the Garage

Just because these pictures won't make it to the pages on any design magazines doesn't mean I'm not equally as proud of our latest accomplishment. Cleaning the garage!! This project has taken 4 years to complete and this garage has served us well. It has held alot of my belongings when I first moved in here with Drew, then it held old dishwashers and refrigerators and stoves and the countless excess junk from all our home remodeling projects.This garage project…

Master Bedroom

This is our finished master bedroom. Like I have previously mentioned its outside of how I have normally decorated a room. I wanted the room to be a bit more modern then what I have usually done and I wanted more color.We needed storage, lots of storage and that's what we got with room to spare. Unfortunately I still have to store seasonal clothes in tubs and change them out for winter and summer but I suppose that's what happens…

Perhaps I Got Ahead of Myself

Guess what? Putting together a new blog is harder then what I thought, perhaps it might take longer then a weekend....I should've guessed when there are books (big books) on how to operate this new system I'm switching to.Stay tuned!
