    This amazing room gives me so many ideas for my own living room redo! I love all the different textures and patterns that were used! Any idea where the nesting tables came from?

    Not sure. I found the link for the article online so I’m not exactly sure what issue it came from. I will look around and report back if I find anything.

    Wow lots of little great DIY ideas in there… especially with the cookie sheets. Who would have THUNK it!?

    I have been really loving the color yellow as of lately so these really make the love for yellow that much bigger!

    I know! I think I will be recovering all of my cookie sheets this weekend! On the other hand I should probably buy some new ones for this task. 🙂

    The radiator covers and cookie sheet ideas are genius! What about using the radiator covers (which I think they sell in large sheets) for the chair rail. If you use a bold enough color underneath, it would look great.

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
