    Camila, can’t beat a day of flea markets! I found your blog while searching for info for painting a kitchen hardwood floor. I know it was in 2010 but it looked really good, hope it still works for you. Can you give me an update on how well it’s worked out? Thanks!

      Hi Patty,

      I’m not going to lie with two kids and a dog the floor has seen better days. However it’s easy to touch it up and about once each year and half I buy a new gallon and re-paint it. I tried getting hardwood floor people to come over seal it but no one would do it. They thought I was nuts. I sealed it myself with floor sealer you can purchase at Home Depot but it was pretty much a waste. I don’t think it did anything.

      Hope that helps!

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, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

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 […]
