Transforming a Boring Single-Panel Door Into A Custom-Looking Masterpiece

Transforming a Boring Single-Panel Door Into A Custom-Looking Masterpiece

Okay, maybe masterpiece is laying it on a little thick, but I'm a Leo. We live for the dramatics. And speaking of drama, that's exactly what the original door was lacking. We moved into our house in mid-2016. It's a great house; the kind people like to say has "great bones". It's an early 1960s [...]

GUEST ROOM REFRESH: My Experience Wallpapering With Rebel Walls

This post comes to you after I'd asked what you guys would like to see on my Instagram and this was the most-asked question.

DIY BATH TRAY TUTORIAL (And Bonus Yarn Craft From Fariha Nasir!)

Whew. I wrote this post last week before the craziness of COVID-19 hit the USA. So I'm altering this post a bit to reflect what we're living through in this moment.

As most of you know, the Middle Tennessee area got rocked by tornadoes this week, one of them ripping through my beloved hometown of Nashville. Neighborhoods in the west, north, and east sides of the city were affected and many homes [...]
