Progress has been happening in the master bedroom! We haven’t done any big projects (there still isn't a ceiling or a floor) it’s mostly just been me shopping and dreaming, and its been fun. Last month I posted the plans for the room and showed you these before pictures - This is the design mock-up I came up with (it’s not great, but you … [Read more...]



Plans for the Master Bedroom

In the last house I never finished our master bedroom, the entire time we lived there it was an unfinished catch-all for everything in the house that didn't have a place. We basically slept in a storage unit. Adam and I would crawl into bed night after a long day, and instead of feeling relaxed we would just look around and think “Ugh...there is so … [Read more...]



Interior Limestone

When designing and planning this house Adam and I knew we wanted a lot of rustic features inside our home. Metal ceilings, antique beams, shiplap siding, brick flooring, rock walls, and rustic wood ceilings and floors were all things we wanted to incorporate in one way or another. We particularity wanted an entire rock wall on one of the walls in … [Read more...]



The Four Month Jellyfish

Does anyone remember a few months ago when I was trying to find something to hang above my bed? (I totally don't blame you if you have no idea what I'm taking about.) Well, I ended up buying the jellyfish poster that I loved so much. It's from Great Big Canvas, an online store that sells artwork. They have about a billion different artwork choices … [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 - … [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...]



“This is my beloved and this is my friend” Pallet Sign

Today I have a simple tutorial for y'all, the pallet sign that was in my master bedroom makeover last week. First thing you will need is a pallet, obviously. I know pallet projects have been all the rage lately, but I haven't ever really used them. Then one day Adam came across a stack of them behind his work and came home with these … [Read more...]



Quick and Easy Master Bedroom Makeover

Many of you know that I'm part of the Better Homes and Gardens Live Better Network, and every other month I am challenged to use BHG products in a different way. Well this last month has been pretty busy for us, and the last thing on my mind was blog deadlines. So a few weeks ago (when I was about a week overdue) I finally remembered to look up the … [Read more...]



Bed Swapping, Hopping, and General Chaos and Destruction

It all started when we went on a cruise last October. Adam and I have always slept on a queen mattress, I've never felt like we needed anything else. I've always thought a bigger mattresses was a waste of space, or for couples that don't like each other as much as Adam and I do. We often fall asleep cuddled up, and more room would just be out … [Read more...]



The Official Domestic Imperfection House Tour! (And A Link Party)

To think of all the poor DIYers and curious souls I disappoint every single day. No more! So welcome to my always in progress, blurry pictured, somewhat messy house … [Read more...]



DIY Chalk Paint Fail & The Bed That Almost Killed Me

So unless you've been living under a rock, you know that chalk paint is all the rage here in crafty blogland.  As a member of crafty blogland, I felt as if I was my duty to give chalk paint a whirl. Annie Sloan makes the stuff everyone raves about, so I went online to order some....that's when I saw that it is crazy expensive. Like over $40 a quart … [Read more...]
