The Basement Transformation, Revisited

Painted Washer/Dryer

One of our most popular posts of 2013 was the transformation of the laundry area in my bungalow’s basement.  Mom came to visit for a week, and we spent a good amount of time on projects for the space.  It was totally worth it, though.  Many, many of our readers have similar cold and colorless […]

Paris Grey, Revisited

Jordan and I decided to tuck 2013 in by sharing some of our favorite projects that we did this year.  When I looked back through the blogs we produced each month, I noticed a definite pattern.  We are normal gals.  Our projects won’t change the world – just our world.  Every. Single. Thing. that we […]

Big Improvements to a Little Room

Foyer

Ever since Jordan and Mr. Spring moved into their 1928 bungalow, I have been itching to get my hands on their foyer.  Foyer might be the wrong word for it.  It is more like an anteroom that serves as a buffer from their front porch to the living room that it leads into.     […]

Painted Dresser

Green Dresser

You all know that I love a good painted piece of furniture as much as you do.  Recently one of my friends just moved for a new job and contacted me saying she didn’t have a dresser and could she hire me to find one and paint it.  She liked the pieces in my house […]

Our New Roof – Finally!

Gutter issues

Even though our house is a 1928 craftsman bungalow, the only two big purchases we have had to make for it are a new Carrier furnace and now a new roof.  We found out the furnace was almost shot during our inspection, so we were able to get a lower price on the house.  As […]

Updating a Piece of Furniture Without Paint

New Pulls

You know by now that I love painting furniture.  It is a way to give a tired piece an updated look.  While I usually don’t pause one little bit when it comes to painting furniture, but I paused big time with this piece.
