Client Reveal: Office Nook

Client Reveal: Office Nook

I’m not mushy, gushy by any means but when it comes to a finished room… especially after MONTHS of waiting… I fall hard in love. Over the next three weeks I’m going to walk you through three different spaces for some truly wonderful clients. Not only did they have patience, mad DIY skills and color coded spreadsheets, but they were just wonderful to work with. I absolutely love the decisions they made and how it all came together. So let's jump right into the first space. The idea of a built-in desk area sounds amazing, right? It really is but when...

Office Upgrade: The Closet

Office Upgrade: The Closet

I’ve been dreaming of this closet forever and ever. It’s seriously been months and months of planning , saving collecting materials  and waiting. But last week I did it. I’m still settling into it and making sure everything works in its spot but it’s one trillion times better than it was and I’m pretty proud of it.   I hesitate to even show you the before because it’s scary but we’re friends and it’s important to see how far it's come. Consider this a cautionary tale of when a space isn’t working… it can get out of control in a...

Office Refresh: The Plan

Office Refresh: The Plan

My office was the first project we took on when we moved in 4 years ago, but the more we live here and the my job evolves, I'm noticing a big need for some changes. But before we get into that, let's go way back and look at the very beginning...  This was when I put the stuff I had leftover in here to let is start taking shape. Clearly the pink was never going to work for me so I went the other direction and never looked back... It’s where my love for “Iron Ore” first started with that...

DIY King Headboard

DIY King Headboard

This is not a story about homeschool, but it’s going to start with an example so stick with me please and thank you. Second grade math is hard. It’s especially hard when you look at a lot of numbers (i.e. triple digit addition and subtraction) and realize you have to do something with them. Sure, there are some people who can do all the math mentally in 1.3 seconds but no one (me included) in our homeschool is one of those people. You look at all those numbers and think how it’s just a lot. But if you break it...

Client Space: Sitting Room Reveal

Client Space: Sitting Room Reveal

  This room is special for about one bajillion reasons. One reason is because it was  for the most precious client/friends and another that I want to physically pick it up and transport it to my house. I seriously had dreams about these chairs. So while I can’t move it all to my house, we can all learn some lessons from this space. Let's take a look at some before and afters then talk about what we can learn here...        And how here is what we can all learn from this space (because I still have not found...
