Sliding Door Media Center

So my sliding barn door failure isn't the first barn door hardware Adam and I have DIYed. About 18 months ago this beauty was created... I never blogged about it for two reasons... I don't have a single picture of the process. I know I took a boatload of pictures but they seemed to have disappeared...I'm pretty sure I accidentally … [Read more...]

Double bypass sliding barn door system – A DIY FAIL

Last week in my guest room reveal I mentioned the closet doors and how they were one of my biggest DIY fails to date. So lets talk about that. I was really excited about these and planned to write this great tutorial, because really...who wouldn't want an awesome DIY double bypass sliding barn door system (say that five times fast)? No one, … [Read more...]

Southwestern Guest Room Reveal

Time for another reveal post! Can you tell I'm trying to tie up loose ends on this house before I completely move onto the next one? Although this room turned out so well that I think I'm just going to move it right into the next house and try to change as little as possible. Anyway, here it is! Here is what the room looked like … [Read more...]

We have a foundation!

Have you ever caught yourself wondering what roughly $35,000 worth of gravel, concrete, and manual labor would look like? Yes? I knew it. Well it looks a lot like this... It's the most beautiful hunk of concrete I've ever seen. Alright, let's dig into the process. So first the form boards went up. It started with the foundation crew … [Read more...]

The Flood

This last Memorial Day Texas was hit by devastating floods. It's hard to imagine now since it hasn't rained all summer and everything is crispy and dry, but there was water everywhere and it simply wouldn't stop coming. It's either feast or famine around here (though usually famine). My five-year old son has been telling everyone he meets (the … [Read more...]

Master Bathroom Reveal

A few weeks ago I was working on my linen closet makeover and taking pictures of the finished product. I was perched on the vanity counter, pressed up again the mirror, when I looked around and realized that I had never posted a reveal of my master bathroom remodel. You know, the one Adam and I started in 2013 and haven't worked on in over a year? … [Read more...]

Linen Closet Organization (and the end of my pink walls!)

I've done a lot of painting during the seven years we've lived in this house. A lot. Most rooms have been painted three or more times... Adam jokes that there are so many layers of paint on the walls that I've actually decreased the square footage of our home. There is one spot that has yet to be caressed by a paintbrush though, the single … [Read more...]

Interior Inspiration

One of my goals with this new house is to have the actual house have personality, not just the stuff in it. Most new homes I see these days (I know because I stalk for fun, still) are big, beige, drywall boxes. Even the expensive ones...they're all the same. I want this home to be truly unique and custom. I want it to be functional and … [Read more...]

Round Inlay Table…err, Wall Medallion

Every night for the last two weeks I've told myself that I would write about this table, and every night one of three things happened instead - Judah cried all night. He just turned four months, but I swear that boy is teething. I instead spent hours online researching stuff for the new house. The last few nights have been all about windows. … [Read more...]

Exterior Inspiration Pictures

Hey everyone, hope y'all had a great Fourth! So today I'm sharing some of the pictures Adam and I used as inspiration while designing our new home. But first, a public service announcement... If you're using pinterst to design a new home or remodel an old one, STOP IT. Pinterest has its place of course, but is Houzz is so much better. I will … [Read more...]

Floor Plan and Elevations for the New House

Here it is, the floor plan and elevations for the new house! I'm not even going to bother with a wordy post, we will have plenty of time to dig into the details later. No one is even reading this anyway, you've already scrolled down to see the pictures and I'm basically talking to myself at this point. So without further ado.... The Floor … [Read more...]

Designing a House

Alright y'all, it's finally time to dig into the plans for the new house! YAY! So this post is going to be a bit of back story on the house, and in the next few posts I'll share our inspiration pics and floor plan. And bear with me because it's kinda all over the place (I'm trying to keep it somewhat short and sweet). Here we go.... We … [Read more...]

10 ways to decorate above your bed

Lately I've been spending time mindlessly scrolling through pinterest and Houzz (what else can you really do when breastfeeding at 3am?), gathering ideas for something to hang above the bed in our master bedroom. There are lots of great options out there, so I thought I'd put together a post showcasing a few of them. 1. Art - This … [Read more...]

Planked Walls and Upholstered Headboards (master bedroom progress)

Well, the master bedroom is slowly coming along, looking better and better each month! I'm trying to work on it a little at a time and not stress, since I realize we may never fully finish it before we sell our house. I'm okay with that, and in the meantime I'm really enjoying having a master bedroom that doesn't make me cringe. Anyway, this … [Read more...]

How we’ve been spending our weekends (a land update)

When I first introduced y'all to the property we are building our house on it was the middle of winter and nothing was green. Well, I'm happy to say that is no longer the case! (these were taken before all the crazy flooding here in Texas) The creek is gorgeous. There are SO MANY ferns that you can't even get to the water, and the … [Read more...]

An update on Judah and life with three kids

I think it's high time for a baby update. I can sense that y'all want one, I can feel everyone thinking "curtains, saloon doors, lampshades, me the baby!" Okay, FINE. If y'all are going to force me to show pictures of my adorable new son, then I guess I will. Just don't expect me to like it. Okay, let's just get all the … [Read more...]

DIY lampshade with a hidden design (and a giveaway!)

*This post is sponsored by Cutting Edge Stencils* A few months ago I received an e-mail from a woman name Kiri who had recently launched her own company.  It's called i like that lamp, and she sells lampshade kits where you order the exact size you need and use your own fabric to customize it. I thought it was a great idea for a company...not that … [Read more...]

How (not) to make saloon doors

Sometimes DIY projects around here turn out great. Sometimes they are giant failures. And sometimes they look great and are a failure at the same time. This is one of those projects. About five years ago I removed the closet door from my boy's room. Most people love doors on closets because you can hide the mess... I like closets not … [Read more...]

Cowboy bedding and how to make lined curtains

Okay, sorry for the awkward long break...lots of things going on here at Casa Domestic Imperfection! Exciting news...we are we are almost finished finalizing plans for the new house and will be breaking ground much sooner than we thought. Yay! (and holy stressful!).

Cowboy Bedroom REVEAL!

Today's a big day y'all, a big big day. Why? Because I finished the boy's room! This room makeover has been dragging on for many, many years. It's kinda embarrassing how long it has taken, but I have to remember that this isn't a TV show where room makeover take 30 minutes, or some awesome professional blog where things get done in a timely … [Read more...]
