What would you do?

So, I was asking my husband where should I start? 

What should I post about? 

Past projects that helped us sell our home? 

Our new house? 


His response?

“Post about this house – how messy it is, and how much work we have to do!” 

I guess we both are feeling a little overwhelmed. 


I’m going to show you what we left behind in Georgia

and what we have now in Arizona.


ask your advice.


What would you do?


Let’s start with pictures so you can form an opinion.

The home

I adored in Georgia…

Have you seen enough?

Oh… I forgot this one…


These are the stairs that lead upstairs.


A picture says so much.



Here’s where I really need your help.


If it were you,

would you work on the interior first.

Replace flooring, update kitchen, etc., etc.,

or would you

build a pool and create a fabulous backyard oasis?


I’m really struggling with this decision.

Thanks in advance for help with this one.

Boys Teen Bedroom – Reveal

Teen bedroom Slipcovered Grey

It’s here… the Boys Teen Bedroom Reveal.

Yes, I know… I am like a slow little turtle crawling uphill. 

I started my son’s teen bedroom last year.


It’s been done for awhile and I have neglected to share the final reveal with you.  

This room truly was a labor of love –

I wanted this room to be a work of art, all done by hand.


My son appreciates it, and knows that he has a room that is really special. 

He even asked me if I would re-create his room when we move. 

I told him I’d give it my best shot.

For the most part,

everything in this room is DIY.

The lamps are from Home Goods.

The wall of hooks make the room seem larger and the clock was easy to make.

The wall map is definitely a statement piece in the room,

and you’d never guess what is under that upholstered chair.

Now he has the perfect place to sit and do his homework.



Do you remember how it started?

Bunk Bed

Oh… that is so embarrassing!

Child's Room

Okay… that’s a little better,


I wanted it to look like this

Olioboard Teen Room

That’s when drawing a floor plan came in handy,

Tutorial Floor Plan[pinit]

and drawing elevations was a must to make sure my vision was down on paper.

This helped others see the vision too.

Teen Room

I decided on room colors,


Painted the walls

Paint Colors

and completed all of  the projects that went in the room…


It started with the two-toned desk.

Desk drawers[pinit]

then the wall of hooks,

Subway Art wishes,

a chair with a story to tell,

and brass bed spray paint transformation.

 My son’s teen room is complete!

With a blink of an eye he will be out of the house,

but now he has a room he will remember forever!
