Classic Masculine Design Board

Remember that ugly bathroom I showed you guys about a month ago? The one that’s got a lot of bulky wood and peeling wall texture? Well I finally got a vision! This is our front, also guest, bathroom, but mainly, the one my husband and son use. So I wanted to use classic pieces and…

Nook Restyle

Currently I’m in the process of restyling a little nook in our family room! There is an end goal for this space, to become the home of some beautiful stairs leading to a finished attic space! But for now, I just want it to be functional, and of course beautiful! The dream: As always, when…

$111 Bathroom Restyle

Our office bathroom has been the same since we moved in 7+ years ago! The same old dingy, yellowish walls left behind by whatever officed here prior to us! And no matter how clean it actually was, it always still felt dirty. So my boss gave me a $100 allowance to work my magic! I…

Big Boy Alert

I’ve heard people say that one day they were holding their newborn infant with one hand and the next they were shaking their grown son’s hand and sending him off to college. I know that time is like watching water evaporate: when you’re watching intently, it slowly dissipates, but if you glance away for a…

Glamour, Putting it in its Place.

I recently heard this simple, yet life-altering phrase: “Glamourizing the messy, and not the message.” And it stopped me dead in my tracks. In lieu of music while I’m working, I’ve been listening to podcasts and my current fave is Allie Casazza. She is passionate about sharing her motherhood and decluttering wisdom. Her ideas and…

Last minute grad gift

It’s that time of year again, end of school is already here! I know, I can’t believe it either! It goes by faster and faster every year! And it’s grad week! If you’re like me, you probably have multiple grads in your life. We had four this year! And all over the state! We’ve already…

Pops of Personality

I love color! I also love clean! So how do I marry the two, without regretting a decorating choice two years from now? I think many of us face this struggle when we move into a new home! I would love to be that woman that knows exactly what she likes and will like for…

Thinking Caps On

Hey y’all! How’s your week going? It’s hump day, already! So this week I’m just searching for inspiration! I need a little break from decluttering (reading Declutter: The Japanese Art of Minimalism for motivation) because it’s just so emotionally stressful! For now, I’m wanting to do a quick-style in the boys bathroom! I say boys,…

Work Hard, Play Hard

Chisum and I decided we deserved a little reward after all of our decluttering & donating! Knowing that I don’t want to bring more stuff back into the house, we hit Goodwill after school with a very specific shopping mission! I told C he was allowed as many books as he wanted and one toy….

Wednesday, A Day of Rest

It’s 46° and rainy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining! Chisum and I need the snuggles just as much as we need the rain in West Texas! However, it feels much more like a dreary Fall day instead of April 25th! But I love a good excuse to sit down, be lazy and enjoy…
