New artwork for the master bedroom

Please feel free to share or pin our projects (share buttons under each post). We would really appreciate it! Thanks for stopping by!


Hey there!

As I told you in the post about hiding cords in the master bedroom we had just gotten a large box delivered from Ballard Designs with some new wall art. I can't tell you how excited I was to find this piece. I had been searching for something to hang above our bed for quite a while. The picture we had up there was one we had gotten while living in Germany. Change was way over due. 


I had wanted a pretty, old window to hang above the bed but couldn't find one that was just right. They were either too long, not long enough or too tall. I wasn't being picky about finish or anything because that is something I could have changed if it had been painted some horrible color but we never found one close to what we were looking for. 

Ed and I had been out antiquing one Sunday afternoon and I was feeling defeated by the lack of windows so I decided to do some online shopping to make myself feel better on the way home. It had been a while since I had checked out Ballard Designs so I thought I would see what they had to offer. And there it was. The answer to my art above the bed dilemma!

DIY powder room remodel

Hey there! 

There is not one room in this house that we will leave untouched in our remodel. Even the closets are getting makeovers! The powder room is no exception. When we moved in it looked like this:


 

Um, what?!?.

Another DIY bathroom remodel

Hey there!

As with the rest of the house when we moved in, the upstairs hall bath was in much need of some TLC. We thought the walls were painted white but realized they had actually been primed and not painted. We assume the previous owners primed to cover either a dark color or messy walls. Whatever the case it was a mess. The vanity actually had nail polish on it that I knew wouldn't come off without damaging the finish so I knew I would have to paint it. 

This is the only picture I could find from before. All white and all boring.


I had initially wanted to rip this room apart but after weighing cost, time and effort decided to leave the tub and vanity and replace or update the rest.
