I’m not really sure what a poke is, actually, but the fact is that we’re temporarily stuck on the shower tiling project. We got the grouting done. Then we got most of the caulking done… And then we ran out of caulk. I ran to the store to get another tube of “Sanded DeLorean Grey” caulk, only to find that particular color of sanded caulk … Continue reading Master Bath Update: Stuck like a pig in a poke.
I was thinking recently that I’d like to replace the over-the-door organizer basket on the kitchen sink cupboard door…with a mounted version. After painting our kitchen cabinets, maybe I’m just a *leettle* paranoid that they’ll get dinged up/dirty? Or that they’ll look less than amazing with little metal tabs from an organizer sticking out over the top of a door? And isn’t it funny how … Continue reading A Quick Fix for Under-sink Organization
Our backyard is the neighborhood litter box. That’s Penny. She doesn’t go outside because she’s a ‘fraidy cat. (And I’m a ‘fraidy cat she’ll get eaten or run over.) But you get the gist.

It’s Hump Day!

I originally put up an existing decoration we got as a wedding present and found a pretty bowl to hold the extra … Continue reading How to Decorate a Bathroom
Here’s a really quick, cheap and easy way to add a dash of color to your décor, in just the right size, with almost no planning and very little money (if any). When I was a teenager and babysitting a lot, I often took craft projects with me for the kids – and this was my go-to project because it was always a hit.

With all the projects I’ve done around here (and continue to do), I always struggle a bit to describe the ‘wheres’ and the ‘whys’ when it comes to our home’s floorplan. I always find myself wondering about floorplans in other people’s pictures too, wondering what angle it was taken from, what “that room” is over on the left, what side of the house the … Continue reading Let’s Make This Easy: The Floorplan
