Scenes from my weekend…

    How did you painted floor hold up, all these years later? When did it start to show a lot of wear, if at all?
    Obviously you are repainting touch ups to sell, but would you do it again if you were staying?

      According to the paint company it’s suppose to last forever, but I have a dog and two boys. So, that never happened with me. Ideally I could be repainting it yearly, but I have been doing it around every 2 years. I have tried putting a special poly over it, but that didn’t give me longer wear and it took way longer for it to seal. A gallon last a long time so to me it’s worth it to just repaint when the wear and tear gets too much for me. If you don’t have kids or animals then I think it would last younger.

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, […]

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 […]
