weekend: painting!

Mr. C contributing to the weekend project. Cutie. Gotta love rolling and painting when the drips and drops can fly in this empty space with plywood floors. As for the wall paint color? That is where I really get all jazzed up—heading to and fro from the paint store with samples and shades. The winner [...]

d-r-a-b….to fab!

Toss in the dumpster? I purchased this very creepy-looking light from deep in a garage in Edina 6 years ago, which I believe originally came from IKEA. Attempting to add some light to the sunk-in kitchen room this light has hung for years. I believe it has only further contributed to that sunk-in feeling. I [...]

shouldn’t be so kind.

This little cabinet of mine – it went from drab pine – to aqua shine. The golden knobs from Anthro, of course. I have liked liked— but not loved loved. * * * * * Maybe I treated it too kindly? Stop the madness. This is very much indeed what I would love. Like forever [...]

tag: i’m it! because i can.

Thanks to she-seeks-and-finds Julie, I am the proud owner of aqua and canary yellow curtains. And SHR let me leave their premises with this way to good of a deal wallpaper. (sshhh!) Recall, I didn’t hog all the rolls. With some fun things to get creative with – and Julie stopping in for an afternoon [...]

a tribute to gold.

With compassion, Julie wished upon me a Gold Rush. Low and behold, right out my own set of windows, alive and well (ok – actually in the process of dying) is my very own display of Gold and all its glory. Now leaves, hang in there! No need to rush into anything – don’t let [...]

roughing it.

Somehow in the midst of all this table drama of hauling, purchasing, stacking, discussing, with some arguing, I got two of these stainless steel babies that I’ve been wondering about. Side-by-side they could make a fun island when that day comes. With Mr. K wanting to park cars in the garage, I got to dreaming [...]

white walls.

Those open shelves to die for. The timeless white airy walls. Any object placed or hung gets all the attention and drama. Simple. Understated. Nummy. Some of you have that ability in you – to go white. I’m drawn to a white room – but I just can’t. So why not? Is it the scarcity [...]

treasure found.

Have you ever had that bag or storage item that you cannot find? You thought you maybe saw it, but now you don’t. My mind, eyes and memory have been playing tricks on me for years. Finally reaching low and deep enough behind the right shelf in our storage room I went “ah hah!” Some [...]

a busy hour.

So there Mr. C is, clearly up and now out. I left you all with:  “Do I just let him paint?” 1) No nap today 2) Pretty moody boy lately even when not tired 3) I am personally wanting to paint, and him on my lap grabbing at my brush isn’t working 4) Though he’s [...]
