Featured Designer & DIY Slipcover Giveaway!

As my regular readers know, I've been in a sofa dilemma for some time now. They were perfect at our old house, but we moved last year and I left my old decor palette behind! I'm done with the green, red & gold and unfortunately, the sofa print has red flowers.

Installing A Storm Door - Week 1 of 2


Fixing the bones of a house isn't fun DIY or glamorous, but a necessity, so please jump for joy as we make progress in our 20 year fix up!

Our old storm door was green and the latch was broken so we finally gave it away and ordered a new one. I'm all about Craigslist and searched for months for a new-but-don't-need door and couldn't find one. So we went to Home Depot for a new one!


We ordered this one:



Awesome.
It came in less than 2 weeks!
