One Room Challenge Week 5 {Laundry Room}

Posted on October 30, 2014

For some reason when I think about Week 5 of the One Room Challenge the song “It’s All About the Benjamins” comes into my mind. Why? No idea. But put that song in your head and let’s read about my progress this week, shall we? Last week (week 4) was all about putting the function in “functional laundry room”, week 3 was all about the wallpaper, week 2 saw new tile in the space, and week 1 spelled out my plans for the space. And my report for Week 5 is that It’s All About Dressing Up the Cabinets! In Week 5 my laundry cabinets got a coat (or three) of gray paint and some insanely awesome DIY leather pulls!!! I put a sneak peek of the leather pulls up on Instagram last week and I think that picture might have gotten the most likes of any picture we have ever posted! …

Peeping Bitches {Tammy’s house}

Posted on October 29, 2014

Earlier this month we were in Oregon for our annual trek back to where we used to live and a five day pampered stay with our friends. Lyn and Steve have the most beautiful house (check it out here and here) and always make us feel like we are living it up at the best B&B in Oregon! I had so much fun sharing Lyn’s house last year that I asked if she had any friends with amazing houses and that’s when she told me about Tammy’s. We went over to meet her that evening and I’m going to say I was more than a little nervous. What if the house wasn’t really that great and Lyn was just trying to be nice to Tammy what the hell was I going to say? Would I still post it? Conundrum. I shouldn’t have worried though because the moment Tammy opened the …

Petrified wood ceramic tile

Did you see Friday’s post with our October Year of Change Change challenge with Tonic Living? They were experiencing hosting issues Friday and over the weekend. I’m happy to say they have everything up and running again. If you have a chance go over and check out their amazing selection of fabric, pillows and drapes! Thanks again Tonic Living for helping us bring some change to our homes! Whew, what a weekend! On Friday night I got to see Hozier play at the Fox Theater, which is pretty much my favorite venue in Colorado. Have you guys heard of Hozier? If not then you should go check him out- I have a feeling he’s on his way to a pretty big musical career. Then on Saturday Tricia and I both attended a Halloween party where the theme was to dress up as a dead celebrity. Tricia went with Frida Kahlo and I …

It’s the end of October and time to reveal this month’s Year of Change challenge with our blog friends Life on Virginia Street, Rosa Beltran Designs, Commona My House and guest designer Krystine Edwards.   I have been so excited about this month’s reveal! The challenge was to add fabric to a space. We teamed up with Tonic Living on this one and got to add fabric from their amazing selection to our homes. If you aren’t familiar with Tonic Living you need to check out their website. They carry the most beautiful fabrics and they are all very reasonably priced. Read on to see how Erin and I incorporated their fabrics into our homes in very different ways. {Erin’s project} The project I decided to take on for this month’s Year of Change was to upholster my son’s IKEA bed. It’s been on my list of projects for some time now and having a great selection of fabrics to choose from Tonic …

One Room Challenge Week 4 {Laundry Room}

Posted on October 23, 2014

Week 4 of the One Room Challenge is here! This week there weren’t any changes made to my laundry room that provided as much of a wow factor as those made in Week 2 and Week 3, when new tile and wallpaper were put into the space. Instead this week was all about making the laundry room more functional. The space is small and as part of this makeover I wanted to make every square inch of the room more useable. Makeovers to bring a new look to a room are great but when you can improve the functionality of the space, that’s when design changes your life. Let’s talk about some small changes made to this laundry room to make the space work better:   First up, shelves were added both on top of the washer and dryer to serve as a folding area and a floating shelf was …
