Working Art

Don’t you love it when a project just happens and you didn’t really plan it?  Well, that’s exactly what happened to me.  The stars lined up, and a project was born.  


New Dresser Pulls

Antique dresser

This dresser is the very first piece of furniture we ever owned as a married couple.  My grandfather gave it to us.  (R.I.P., Grandaddy.)  He would have loved reading blogs and seeing how people redo furniture.  He was a thrifter and bought and sold antique furniture on the side.  He would have also loved ebay.  […]


The Foyer Look I Love, Finally


Greetings from Syracuse where Jordan and I are staying warm and cozy.  We do not have any major projects planned for this visit, although there is an area I would love to tackle.  It is their stairway area that leads to the basement.  I’m thinking we could turn it into a well-tuned organizing space for […]


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 […]


Recovered Rug, Revisited

This week Mom and I are bringing back some of our most popular posts from 2013.  This one received a lot of interest because it shows how I brought a rug back from the dead and got a lot more use out of it.     This story finally has a happy ending.  A while […]


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 […]


Christmas Plaid


I didn’t sleep much last night.  There’s excitement in the air.  Tonight I am the third part of a three-part progressive dinner that is taking place on the street where we live for an organization I am involved in.  We have 60 plus people coming.  (I am not saying the exact number because Mr. Right […]


A Before and After

Updating a Picture Mat

(Stay with us. We are still tweaking the format.)   I feel as if I should apologize in advance for today’s post.  The results turned out just the way I envisioned, but the photography reminds me once again how amateurish my skills are.  Glaring glass gets me every time.  Plus, I always want my photos […]


Shower Door Cleaning Tip

How to Clean Shower Door

Happy Monday!!  I am announcing to the world right now that this is not a sexy post.  In fact, it is downright ugly and embarrassing at times.  It could probably get me a big fat condemned sign from the US Health Dept.  However, I am going to be a brave girl and put it all […]


Big Improvements to a Little Room


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.     […]
