new hanging artwork…

By in Master Bedroom, Upstairs Hallway

I finally got around today to hanging some artwork in my bedroom and upstairs hallway. Only two pieces, to be precise, but it’s a start. I always get anxious when it comes to hanging artwork and my head fills with questions such as “is this the right piece for this location?” or “is this piece […]

After six years of living in my house my clothes and I are all together in one room again! Due to the fact that my house is almost 200 years old my closets are small. When I moved in, the dresser that goes with my bed reused to fit up my steep, narrow stairwell (that […]

By in Master Bedroom

I had an awesome time in Ottawa yesterday with my friend Devon! We spent several hours shopping at IKEA then headed over to the Byward Market for some browsing around and lunch! Speaking of lunch, we ate a wonderful little Vietnamese restaurant named Cafe Indochine. I had a delicious sour pineapple soup and a green-curry […]

trip to ikea…decisions, decisions…

By in Inspiration & Ideas, Master Bedroom

I’m taking a trip to Ottawa, Ontario this coming Saturday with a friend to go to IKEA! It’s about an hour away from me but it’s the closest IKEA there is to my home! I wish there was one closer but I guess a boy will have to dream. I’m looking for a mirror and […]

new master bedroom bookshelf…

By in Master Bedroom, Scavenged Stuff

A couple weekends ago I found two great angled bookshelves at a yard sale. Yesterday I painted one of them to put it in my bedroom. I went to Lowes and bought two cans of Krylon White Satin spray paint and a drop-cloth and set up shop in my garage. A couple of coats of […]

By in Master Bedroom

So, it has been forever since I have posted, but nothing has really been going on with my house. All of my time as of late has been spent on work, namely my day job teaching high school art and my night time job teaching prospective art teachers how to be art teachers. I’m really […]

I found this bed throw at T.J. Maxx for only $10! It really adds a pop of color in the room and is so warm and cozy for taking naps! Chloe and Thurston love it too! (Yes, I know I haven’t hidden my cords yet, I can’t find the cord clips I need anywhere around […]

it’s curtains for you!

By in Master Bedroom

My curtain rings came and they make such a difference to me! They really do make them look so much better (Thank you for the suggestion Anna!). I finally found a rod for the bedroom closet that I liked. I looked everywhere for a rod that could mount in the opening but I couldn’t find […]

Does a decent full length mirror for under $50 exist? If so could someone point it out? My nice new bedroom rug is beginning to look more and more like a dream…

no go on the dresser

By in Master Bedroom

My friend Edd and I tried, but the dresser could not make it around the 90 degree turn in my stairs. It’s about 2 inches too wide. So, I’ll be contacting someone tomorrow to see if they can take it apart and put it back together upstairs for me. Hopefully this will be an option, […]
